The Chocolate Fox rolls into Hershey, PA on May 9!
The Chocolate Fox is a brand new All-Fox show brought to you by Fox Mustang Restoration, the creators of Foxtoberfest! We are delighted to bring this exciting event to the northeast, but especially to the iconic city of Hershey, PA. The AACA Museum, a Smithsonian affiliate, not only provides a picturesque backdrop for the show, but offers visitors a chance to tour 3 floors of vintage vehicles in unique scenes and settings. While you're in the area, check out Hershey Park and Chocolate World or venture out into Amish Country or down to Gettysburg; there's something for everyone at this vacation destination. Much like Foxtotoberfest, The Chocolate Fox is not your traditional car show; we welcome all Fox-Bodies regardless of their restoration stage. You'll see beautiful low-mileage show cars right next to multi-colored projects and that's the way we like it! This is a feel-good, cruise-in type show where Fox fans can come together and experience a sense of community. The show features a popular vote format where registered show participants decide who receives the coveted trophies for classes like "1987-93 Best Original" as well as give-aways like "Most In Need of Upholstery". We have an All-Fox Swap Meet and a vendor row, so bring your cash because you are sure to find some treasures out there! We will also have car corral with Foxes For Sale. New Fox-Body parts will be availabe from Fox Mustang Restoration, as well as a huge stock of Mustang and Ford apparel and Chocolate Fox merch!Stay updated by following us on IG @chocolatefoxshow or Facebook The Chocolate Fox page.

VIPs also have the option to purchase one additional jacket at least 4 weeks prior to the event, but no VIP jackets will be sold at the show or without the purchase of a VIP experience.
