Stampede to the Heartland in Topeka, KS was in the midst of a heat wave, but we braved it. Almost 200 mustangs made the trip with five Boss 429's in attendance, two of them freshly restored. MCA hosted this event with help from Midwest Blue Oval Ford Club. They did a fantastic job of handling show field duties. They provided about 1400 bottles of water over the three days. Receiving a Gold award for our club was Tom & Julie Miller.
Capital Horsepower Grand National Mustang Show is just around the corner. August 30 — September 1 in Fredericksburg, Virginia. We have 4 cars from our club going. Good luck to them!
