    If you haven't gotten the word yet, the January 2020 Fabulous Fords show and all future shows have been cancelled. There will be no Fabulous Ford shows anymore due to lack of participation (only 1,200 registered out of space for 2,000). They say they'll eventually replace the show with something else and all registered participant's entry fees will be refunded.

    yep, because they changed the date to January so a lot said no.

    FFF MESSED UP BIG TIME by relocating. Too much $$$ out of pocket, at Angel stadium, for things that Knott's Berry farm was taking care of (if i remember correctly). Tried to go back to Knott's, but I'm not clear on why the change to January.

    Totally a bummer the show is canceled but I think the January show date was a huge mistake and reduced the attendance numbers down a great deal as well. Even in California the temps dip down a bit and rain possibilities go way up. My car is virtually un-drivable in the rain so I wouldn't even sign up for a show in January just on the chance that it would get rain and my sign up money would be wasted because I couldn't drive the car to the show. Hopefully they will wise up next year.

    What a shame. The Knotts show has been going on since the '80s. Its like they say; 'Don't mess with a good thing!'
