Volunteer truck owners from the Alberta F150’s Facebook group are spearheading the Guinness World Records attempt at the most Ford trucks to gather at one location. Organizers Gavin Packwood and Bill Armstrong, both Ford enthusiasts with Alberta F150’s, hope participants at the meet will have an experience to cherish for a lifetime while giving the Make-A-Wish Foundation a much needed boost.

Packwood says, “We’re excited to have Strathcona Transit host the location of our meet-up and for all truck owners to be part of a meaningful event to fundraise for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. All the net proceeds from our $35 pre-registration benefit the Foundation and it’s objectives.

Alberta F150’s Facebook Group has over 3,400 active members who get together weekly for meet-up’s at various locations throughout the province of Alberta. These truck enthusiasts share their passion for their Ford vehicles by helping to support each other as family and encourage its members to reach out to others in need. Ford F-series is the number one selling vehicle in Canada and king in Alberta truck country!

Volunteer organizer Bill Armstrong says, “Ram truck owners from seven U.S states and Canada helped the Ram Truck brand set a new world record title last April in Texas for the largest parade of 451 pickup trucks. It’s our goal, with the help of our sponsor Sherwood Ford, to smash that record by more than double the number of Ford trucks!”
