Annual Show Draws Near
Larry Jewett - March 26, 2012 11:54 AM
The throaty purr of a Ford Mustang engine will meet up with the whirring of a P51 airplane when the 15th annual Mustangs & Mustangs – Legends Having Fun event takes off at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, Florida. One of the area’s largest Ford Mustang shows will be held on Saturday, March 31.
Throughout the day, show cars are competing for trophies, including a prestigious People’s Choice award. The show is open to all Ford-powered vehicles. Each year, approximately 450 dot the grounds in the event sponsored by the Imperial Mustangs of Polk County.
Pat Rego of Classic Creations of Central Florida has coordinated the event for more than a dozen years. “This is a premier Mustang event and it just keeps getting bigger and better every year. We continue to add new events and bring people from as far as the Northeast to attend.”
This year, the event will carry on to Sunday, April 1, moving to the Walt Disney World Speedway. Parade laps on the race track start at 9 a.m. and participants will receive a discount on the Richard Petty Driving Experience packages. The Sunday event is limited to 64 participants.
