FORT MYERS, Fla. (January 16, 2017) -- On February 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Edison & Ford Winter Estates will host its annual car show featuring antique Ford models. Each year, classic car owners and club members exhibit more than 100 cars on the Ford lawn, along the Caloosahatchee River as a tribute to Henry Ford, the pioneer of the automobile industry.
In addition to the car exhibition, living history characters, Henry and Clara Ford will lead informal tours throughout the event. 

Registrations are being accepted for Ford models 1980 and older. To register a car, contact Leeanne Criswell at lcriswell@edisonfordwinterestates.org or 239-334-7419. The deadline for pre-registration is January 27. Pre-registration is $15 for one car and $5 for each additional car.  

Along with the exhibition, there will be music, food available for purchase and visitors can tour the beautiful gardens, historic homes, museum and laboratory.

This family event is free for Edison Ford members and $20 for nonmembers. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the restoration of the antique car collection at Edison Ford.
