My Early Ford Store Adventure
 

Imagine my surprise when I searched "Early Ford Store" on the Ford Barn and it didn't bring up any threads with photos of this amazing place. So I thought I'd share my visit from last Thursday with you guys. Truely an awesome place and I don't even own a Ford! lol Oh yeah, and the guys there are super friendly and knowledgable too.

I tell ya what if they don't have it you don't need it;)

They are located on a cute little main street in San Dimas, CA. If you blink you might miss the store front. Lots of free parking in the back.

All in all a wonderful visit to a great business. I would highly recommend a stop if you're in the area OR if you need a part give them a hollar.

My wife and I toured the EFS on Friday. I couldn't carry on a coherent conversation for the rest of the day. My wife walked out and went antiquing in the village and I didn't even know she was gone! I did buy some ignition parts while there and a great T-shirt.

Thanks for the pictures, Denise, I took maybe three and then I just drooled.

I was there on Friday as well! LOL The guy I was with couldn't stop talking about these fog lights we'd seen on Thursday. Finally on Friday afternoon I said lets go back there so you can get those lights so I don't have to hear about them any longer. :D He got the lights and then we did browse the antique stores as well. Fun day.

I stopped in there last week when i went to the Grand National Roadster Show. Great place, and man have they got the goods. Alot of patina in there.

That's my most favorite Ford store ever. If I'm even close I'll stop by just to see the new finds. Great treatment of their customers as well, top notch all the way around.

Thanks for the pictures,

Tim

Bill & Mike (father & son) are great folks. I get underfoot there everytime I go out for the Roadster (June) show. Thanks for posting. And yes, Mike in AZ, looks like they rotated the rolling stock.

I was there Friday too before the GNRS show opened up. Didn't see ya Denise but did see AV8 Pauls roadster in the parking lot behind the store. Pure EFV8 bliss here fellas and gals. My buddy's had to pry me away. Even heard the police are close to catching the guy that stole the Frenzel supercharger, but no word on the Frenzel itself. So I wanted to meet the owner but he was up in Turlock attending the swap meet. No doubt to add more Flathead stuff to his store!
