GOODY BAG INFORMATION

Thank you for your interest in our Fabulous Fords Forever event!

The Fabulous Fords Forever! Car Show has become a long-standing tradition in the Southern California car show scene and is typically the first Ford-related car show on the West Coast each year.

The Ford Car Club Council, representing many Ford, Mercury, Lincoln and other brands , in conjunction with Ford Motor Company , proudly presents the show annually at Knott's Berry Farm in beautiful Buena Park.

We provide the opportunity for our Member Clubs to present their promotional materials for their car shows and other club social gatherings for our goody bags.  We also provide this service for those clubs and organizations who are not formally members of the FCCC.

We have the following guidelines:

 If you are an FCCC Member Club that would like to have their flyers, catalogs, or other information inserted into our goody bags, we ask for the following

  • A minimum of 1,700 of the item you wish to have placed into our goody bags
  • A minimum of one (1) person to help with the goody bag stuffing (this is required if the Member Club has requested a Club Booth Display at the Show)

If you are a non-FCCC member club or association that would like to have their flyers, catalogs, or other information inserted into our goody bags, we ask for the following:

  • A minimum of 1,700 of the item you wish to have placed into our goody bags
  • A minimum of one (1) person to help with the goody bag stuffing
  • In lieu of the volunteer, we would request a $100 fee for labor

If you are inquiring about sponsorship via flyers, catalogs, brochures, or any other item that you wish to insert into our goody bags, we ask for the following:

  • A minimum of 1,700 of the item you wish to have placed into our goody bags
  • A $100 fee for labor

When we have your items, they will be placed into our goodie bags -- this will get your message in the hands of every participant in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, we need materials shipped to our warehouse for delivery no later than one week before the date of the show, or you can bring the materials by 10:00 a.m. to our goodie bag stuffing location at Knott's on the Saturday before the show.

Hello and welcome to our website!

I am the current Board Chairman of the Ford Car Club Council, the group responsible for conducting the annual Fabulous Fords Forever car show.  We have a great group of people who help put the show together.  The member clubs provide us with many volunteers who are the friendly people you see helping park the show vehicles and who hand out the goody bags.  We truly hope that you have a wonderful time at the show!

Along with Glenn, I also help out with contributions to our website and our social media pages.  Often times, when you send us a question to our Facebook page or an email through our website, it will be me answering it.  I wear many hats in this job, so I am always busy!  On top of all that, my wife and I are producing a podcast [Inside the FFF] that provides an inside look to the show and its history, as well as other automotive goings-on.  Give it a listen if you have a chance!  We're on Facebook, Instagram, and iTunes!

I sincerely hope to see you at the show!
