The “Grand Nats,” as we like to call it, is to us Ford truck enthusiasts what SEMA is to most everyone else: HUGE! Bringing over 1,000 classic Ford truck owners and their Blue Oval passion to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, for the 2023 event was nothing short of awesome.

Joe Carpenter and his family/team put on such a good show for all of us to enjoy. There was something there for everyone, from early Ford trucks to fat fenders, fridges, slicks, bumps, dents … heck they even let in bulls, bricks, and OBS trucks, too. You had all kinds of builds from show quality to daily drivers.
