    We usually have 35 to 40 Deuces. Fiberglas or steel - - OHV or FLATHEAD - - Highboy or fenders ...original or hot rod it does not matter ... if it is a 32 Ford ... you are ... WELCOME :D
    The run will leave From the Target Shopping Center at the North East Corner of Interstate 77 and Hwy 73 ( Exit 25 off Interstate 77 ) in Cornelius promptly at 10 o'clock. The overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway provides a excellent place to stop, sight see and look at each others Deuce. It is a excellent photo opportunity. A lunch stop is planned at Canyons restaurant in Blowing Rock NC. Canyons has a large parking lot and a very scenic view of the Smokey Mountains. Plan to get out your chairs and relax for awhile.

    Please invite your 32 Ford owner friends to join us.

    Run Co-coordinators

    Bill ... 704-788-1856 in North Carolina

    OK guys,you can now officially ,mark your calendars.June 6, 2015 is the date for the Annual "All Deuce Run" through the Beautiful Blue Ridge mountains is the date.

    The last couple of years we have gathered at the Lone Star steak house and saloon for dinner on Friday night and we socialized in the parking lot for a hour or so before heading back to the motel.

    Some of us are staying at the Sleep Inn on Friday,132 Meadow Hill Circle,704-799-7070

    This is exit 36 off I-77 Mooreville,same exit as the restaurant.

Danny, is there any chance this might turn into a two day run... starting on Friday? I enjoy the Friday night bench racin' almost as much as the GREAT tour. It's a pretty good distance for some us to make in one day. It sure was great meeting everyone last year., I highly recommend this run to everyone who asks.

Ken,because of traveling distance and some driving considerably further than I do,that's the reason we talked about doing something on Friday.

That was when Bill came up with the idea of a dinner together,as of this minute we haven't discussed two days. Danny

Danny,
I am thinking of driving down, meeting the group on Friday and doing the run on Saturday.  It looks like Saturday the drive is from Moorsville to Blowing Rock.  After lunch, does everyone head for home?  Just trying to plan my Saturday evening stay.  Thanks, Phil

3 to 4 hours depending on the route and the stops for gas & photos.

I have left Anderson,South Carolina early one morning and met up at the Tanger parking lot,joined in on the run,drove back to Mooresville,N.C for a cruise in and back home...that made for a long day,especially in the tight confines of my 32 pickup..I drove just shy of 600 miles that day.

Since we started having the Friday night dinner it makes for a nice overnight trip. HRP

I posted these over on that other board, but thought some of y'all here might enjoy these.  We had a great day with a good turn out of Deuces.  Folks from all over the country were there.

Tom,32 was the count but only 29 made the run.

Barry's roadster had a catastrophic transmission failure at the host motel parking lot,Tom driving the red sedan just saw us off due to his wife being ill and Max felt like his brakes were lacking and 88 years young he was the co-pilot in the green 5 window.

We had about 10 seasoned veterans but the rest of the guys were first timers,I think everyone who showed up had a good time. HRP

Seadog, it was nice to meet you yesterday.  My wife and I had a great time on the run.  It was 851 miles from our house in Petersburg IL to the Deuce Run. Everyone was so nice and friendly and we felt very comfortable.  We would highly recommend this trip to everyone. Lots of great cars, scenery and food at the Canyons.
We traveled a total of 1833 miles in our Deuce over the last 5 days.  We are both still grinning!

We just returned home this evening after attending the All Deuce Run on Saturday.  We drove over 1800 miles in the past 5 days to attend this event.  I've seen it on this site for the past 4 years and have wanted to go so we finally did it.  We had a great time, saw a lot of nice cars, enjoyed the spectacular scenery and good food at the Canyons.  Here are some pictures we took on Friday and Saturday.

Thought we'd add a couple of pictures of our trip through the mountains to get to the Deuce Run.  We had great weather except for about 30 miles coming out of the mountains.

Dean,there were 31 deuces but our pal Barry's roadster lost the transmission at the host motel parking lot Friday evening,Max the elder states man driving the grey cabriolet felt like his brakes were iffy so he hitched a ride and Tom driving the red sedan couldn't go with us due to his wife being ill,,,so we had 29 that participated this year.

David also posted some great photos,,thanks to both of you.

There are a lot of Deuce shows around the country and abroad ,the All Deuce Run is a little different,it's a driving event not your typical park and sit back in a chair. HRP
