Fords of all models and years – as well as different makes – will be on display at the Vandalia Lake campgrounds this weekend.


Among the vehicles on display will be the original Ford Motor Co. Boss Mustang prototype.
The second annual Midwest All-Ford Nationals gets under way when vehicles begin arriving at the lake campgrounds on Friday and runs through late afternoon on Sunday.
The car and truck show and swap meet is again being sponsored by the Vandalia Lions Club, Tony Lawler of Tony’s Car Care and Bill Haselhorst of Vandalia Classic Cars, with the proceeds going to the Lions Club for its community service projects.
Admission is $5 per person, and the vehicle entry fee is $20. For vehicles entered for display purposes only, the fee is $15.
The first 100 entries will receive a goodie bag and dash plaque.
In the Car Corral, owners wanting to sell their vehicles, the fee is $25 for both days.
Vendor spaces, 10 feet by 30 feet, are available for $25 for both days.
Parking will be available free of charge.
Three awards will be presented in each of 35 classes, including ones for original and restored vehicles, street rods and machines, trucks, Corvettes and vehicles being restored.
Eleven special awards will be given – Best Ford, Best Chevy, Best Mopar, Best Pontiac, Best Engine, Best Interior, Fireman’s Choice, Club Participation, Best Paint and Graphics, Banker’s Choice and Mayor’s Choice.
