5.0 Mustang & Super Fords
The Big 'Stang Stampede at GTR High Performance
Record number of Mustang enthusiasts and Ponies converge on GTR's annual customer celebration
GTR High Performance (www.gtrhipo.com) is one of Southern California’s most-popular, late-model-Mustang performance shops, and a long-time ally of 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords. Every November, owners Ricardo and Gonzalo Topete (and their staff of technicians and assistants) open their doors to customers, family and friends for an afternoon of appreciation that we really look forward to attending.
The annual “Customer Appreciation Day” is highlighted by a car show (you’re gonna dig the winner of the 1994-2004 class), manufacturers’ displays (McLeod Racing, Torco, TruFiber, Magnaflow, Mac Exhaust, Torco, Carbon Driven) hot dog lunch, a great raffle, killer Mustang swap meet and an always-popular dyno shootout (won for the second-straight year by Tim Schmackpfeffer’s 8-second, street-driven 1992 LX).
It’s always cool to be around cool people who really love late-model Mustangs, and this year a record number of ‘Stangbangers and bad-ass rides represented. Enjoy the photos, and, if you’re in or near Rancho Cucamonga, stop in and see the crew at GTR. They’re great folks, and they really showed us an awesome time at their Customer Appreciation Day.
