Pics from the FordSouth show from last weekend.

Dick Brannan's 1st Annual www.FordSouth.com "All Ford"
show just north of Atlanta Georgia was clearly weighted
toward the FE, with plenty of emphasis on the Cammer.

The show had a respectable swap meet section, which
included a 1966 PI engine with A-marked hydraulic
block (probably later 1966) with solid lifters,
2-piece flexplate, and HD damper. It sold in short
order. 428CJ intakes got some respect, too:

The only Streetmaster intake went to Dusty:

On opening day, Friday, there was plenty of
breathing room (and dry overcast skys) at the
fairgrounds. The weather was great all weekend:

A fine Fairlane with 427 High Riser plopped between
the towers:

Learning the hard way that Hi-Riser heads tilt the
valve covers outward to fit the tall intake ports:

Saturday was a very busy day:

Cacklefests, where a series of race cars were run
for a few moments each, gathered the crowds:
