Foxtoberfest 2021 was the 10th anniversary of the fun event held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concorde, North Carolina. The Fox-Body Mustang was produced by Ford from 1979 till 1993, only slightly longer than the event has been occurring.
The first gathering in 2011 only drew a little over 60 Fox-Body vehicles. This year they were shooting for 500 Fox-Bodied vehicles, but they blew past that number and ended up with over 700 cars in attendance, making it a huge success.
Foxtoberfest is not your traditional Mustang Show. Every model, type, modded, brightly painted, rusty and primered, immaculate, and works in progress was there as their owners proudly display their favorite Foxes.
PowerCurve Motorsport's dyno was there with a steady stream of Fox-Body Mustangs turning the rollers over at high rates of speed to see what kind of RWHP number they could turn.
The show features a popular vote format where registered show participants decide who receives the coveted trophies for classes like "1987-93 Best Original" as well as the giveaways like "Most In Need of Upholstery".
All-Fox Swap Meet was a part of it as well as many Vendors. New Fox-Body parts were available for sale in the Fox Mustang Restoration tent who were also the show organizers.
If you are a Fox-Body fan, there is nothing that compares to an all-Fox show packed with every type of Fox imaginable.
As it was Halloween Eve, there was a costume party at the host hotel Friday night that carried over onto Saturday’s showfield.
The Charlotte Motor Speedway parking lot was full of Foxes and many a Fox-Tale was told over the weekend.
The Fox-Body Mustangs were built from 1979 to 1993 and Ford delivered 2,608,812. If you participated in Foxtoberfest 2021 you could have seen over 700 of those Foxes still alive, kicking, and rolling down the highways in Charlotte, North Carolina. Is 1,000 possible for next year? Join us and see! Until then, check out the gallery of images from this year's Foxtoberfest to check out all the fun!
