Back to the future.
Henry Ford produced cars for the masses: well-designed automobiles that people could afford. Over the decades, Ford's wallet-friendly wheels have become prized collectibles for gearheads around the globe. In Manitoba, get your Ford fix at the annual Flashback Weekend, the province's largest car event (Sept. 6–8).
The three-day auto extravaganza is hosted by the Fabulous 50's Ford Club of Manitoba, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, restoring and enjoying vintage Fords. Now in its 25th year, the throwback weekend kicks off on Friday evening with a sock hop where guests can twist the night away to a live rock band. Saturday sees a classic car cruise wind along the Red River from Winnipeg to Lockport. But the marquee event happens on Sunday when more than 1,500 vintage models converge on the parking lot of the Garden City Shopping Centre. Bop to live music as you ogle all the fabulous Fords.
