Unlike myself, Ford prepares its anniversary celebrations well in advance. Plans are already in place to gather 75 of the most significant hot rods based on the '32 Ford, and the collection will be debuted at the 2006 Grand National Roadster Show next January. Expect the collection, which will likely include vehicles such as Coddington's Boydster, to be shown at several other west-coast events as well. It'll also be the anniversary of Ford's "flathead", the first mass-produced V8 that was the standard powerplant for hot-rodding for about three decades and still sees a lot of use today. I'm sure the flathead will be well represented in the display cars, since nothing else looks quite as "right" in a '32 Ford. Well, OK, maybe a big-block Chevy with an 8-71 looks pretty good, too.
