EVEN people who knew nothing about cars left the Pacific Ford and FPV Total Performance Car Show feeling like motor vehicle enthusiasts.

Decades of colourful Ford collectibles were on show at Maroochydore's Pacific Ford yesterday, drawing a crowd of 3000 fascinated by the big looks and sounds.

The oldest car - a beautiful 1934 pearl white Tudor - stood among nine generations of vehicles on display.

Pacific Ford Motorgroup Maroochydore manager Greg Manchester said the event started six years ago for local Ford enthusiasts.

"It's a collection of Fords from owners far and wide, and we've got a couple from even Toowoomba and Maryborough," Mr Manchester said.

"It's part of a continuing car show we've been running for six years," she said.

"We had some local enthusiasts who said there was nothing like this on the Coast and had to travel to do it.

"We just put it on for people interested in doing it. It is really about the cars and the owners."

More than 150 beauties were on show, with visitors catching a glimpse of GTs from the 1960s to today.

FPR driver Chaz Mostert signed autographs for fans.

The Show Car engine rev-up was a crowd favourite, giving owners the chance to show off their car's power.

Mr Manchester said a major highlight of the day was a car on the "dyno" reaching 1113 horsepower.
