Car enthusiasts from near and far got a glimpse of Ford’s storied history and charged future at the Carlisle Ford Nationals show in Carlisle, Pennsylvania last weekend.

The automaker may drop $50 billion to move to electric vehicles, but Ford is barely turning its back on its gas legacy.

Ford has more than 100 years of history, from the Model T to its most famous designs – such as the Mustang and the F-150 – packed with impressive performance, speed and design specifications.

The show, the largest Ford-only event in the world, allowed attendees to see more than 3,100 Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles spanning the automaker’s history.

From classic Fairlanes, Galaxies and Thunderbolts to Torinos and Shelbys to all-new versions of the Bronco and Mustang, Ford aficionados got a look at everything vintage and modern from the Detroit giant.

Here’s a look at eight cars, old and new, that grabbed attention at the show.
