I am the Event Coordinator for the 2019 Ford Galaxie Nationals in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This will be the largest gathering of Ford Galaxies in the world, and is a great opportunity to finally put some Ford Muscle Forum names with some faces. We are working with the Ford Galaxie Club of America, but you do not need to be a club member to attend.
A variety of events are scheduled, including an optional cruise on Friday, August 23rd. The car show will take place downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on August 24 from 9am to 3pm. An event banquet and awards ceremony will be held the evening after the show.
Cars can be professionally judged as either Restored Stock, Modified, or Original Unrestored, separated into groups according to year. Many Special awards will recognize Best Engine, Best Interior, Best Paint, Best Race Car, Most Original (unrestored), Most Unique, Furthest Distance Driven, Sponsor’s Choice, etc. Judging will be done by Ford historians and published automotive authors.
The host hotel is the Hotel Kirkwood
located about six miles from city center. It is a beautiful, modern hotel that serves as an excellent destination for a weekend getaway. The hotel features dedicated trailer parking and Galaxies-only parking on-site. A block of rooms is reserved for the event, using Group Code “Galaxie19”. Please make your room reservations with the hotel and mention our event for the best rate. Hotel Kirkwood can be reached at 319-848-8700. All banquet attendees must pre-register to ensure proper food count.
