It was a good day at the ALL FORD DAY at Hansen Ford Dealership in Mareeba, although it meant an early start in the middle of winter, it wasn`t to bad seeing that we live in Cairns.



Independence Day, Meet and Cruise, 2017

We all meet at the DFO car park, and after a good social get together we headed into town, did a couple of laps then headed to Zarraffa`s for coffee etc. A good nite had by all concerned, already looking forward to next year.
