50th Anniversary Show- 2018
« on: April 24, 2017, 08:03:27 pm »
I've been working in the background for a few weeks now, and I am happy to announce that there will be a 50th Anniversary Event in 2018.  The NMCA will be our host, at the SUMMIT MOTORSPORTS PARK IN NORWALK, OH.  It should be the weekend before Labor Day 2018, but stay tuned for actual dates.

It is still early, but I hope to identify a host hotel in the coming weeks. I hope to mirror some of the things we did in Carlisle, PA for the 40th. One change is to include all Cobra Jets, all makes (Ford, Mercury), all models (Mustang, Torino, Cougar, Cyclone, Shelby, etc.) all engines (428, 429, 351, 5.4), all years!

As I confirm information I will post it here and on other forums. NMCA will also be promoting it when they announce their 2018 schedule.

If you have ideas or suggestions post them, I'll consider most ideas.

Danny

Yes, I hope we will have some racing, too. I'm meeting everyone in person next weekend, so I'll know more in a couple weeks.

I think I have already made a mistake in the announcement. The show is planned for Norwalk, Ohio at the Summit Motorsports Park.

Sorry for the confusion! I'm changing the original post to reflect the correct location!

Nelson - I will bring my Grande and you bring yours.  Now if we could get Kim (deadstang) to bring her Coupe...???

Armond - you will have yours done by then, right??

It's not ME you have to convince -- I'm all over a road trip!  The husband is the one who won't travel the distances for car shows...and it's a little far for me to drag my Mustang by myself.  If I could just drive the Coupe out, it wouldn't be as daunting a trip for me, but we all know what happened last time I drove the Coupe to Montana.  :o :-[ >:(

As I remember it, you met some nice people at a Ford dealership.   :)
