Purpose

The purpose of the Five Valley Ford Club is for owners of Ford and any classic vehicle to gather together to share the enjoyment of special vehicle ownership. This includes car building projects, helping each other in automotive problem solving, sharing knowledge and attending vehicle events. In addition we support a wide variety of charitable projects in our local community. Members do not have to have a Ford vehicle to join. Any vehicle with wheels or moves by an engine is acceptable.
