The annual Auckland Mustang Owners Club car show was held on Sunday, September 27, at Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre on Auckland’s North Shore.
More than 50 Mustangs, ranging from the earliest 1964 models to the current range — including GT, Boss, Shelby, and Roush — provided an excellent line-up of vehicles, enabling the public to gain a greater appreciation of America’s iconic pony car.
With more than 17 categories — including Best in Show — the judging team and committee members also had an opportunity to select possible entries for the club’s 2016 Ellerslie Intermarque Concours d’Elegance team and Masters Class event.
At least half of the Mustang owners took the opportunity to set up their cars in the venue on Saturday afternoon, while the remainder brought their cars along early on Sunday morning. After some frantic last-minute detailing, the doors were opened up to the public at 9am.
Despite the slightly remote location, the day’s beautiful weather saw a steady stream of paying public wandering through the show to admire the Mustangs on display, making it a great day for everyone.
A proportion of the gate takings were donated to this year’s charity of choice — the Hibiscus Hospice.
