The Blue Steel Oval, Bassendean, Perth was transformed into a Ford lovers heaven on Sunday, 27 October 2013. The Falcon GT Club of WA did a brilliant job of organising and supporting this biannual event. A spectacular display of Ford Escorts greeted visitors to the Oval. An impressive sight was that of a car transporter carrying no less than five RS2000 MK 2 Escorts and another transporter laden with hot Mk 1 Escorts. From there, the Oval was packed with GT Falcons, Mustangs, Hot Rods, Historic Racing Cars and miscellaneous other models.
There were trade stands including one selling restored petrol bowsers, BBQs to feed the thousands and Bathurst legend, Leo Geoghegan signing memorabilia. (In 1967, Leo drove an XR GT Falcon into 2nd place at Bathurst). Due to its diverseness, this would have to be one of the best car shows in Western Australia – it’s a pity that it is only held every 2 years!
