We have full show results in now from the 2016 National Parts Depot Silver Springs Ford & Mustang Roundup that occurred on January 9th, 2016 to share with our readers. Show organizers at National Parts Depot were quick to hand out the awards at the show due to a threat of afternoon rain. Thankfully the awards were handled in short order and attendees were able to exit the grass-laden park before the rains arrived. Please see the winner’s list below and we hope to see everyone back at Silver Springs in 2017!

NPD awards car owners engraved glass mugs with the show logo and class information each year. Here Peter Van Roo, whose beautiful 1967 Mustang GT fastback won its class, accepts his awards on stage.
Another award winner was Dean George with his 1976 Mustang II Cobra, which took top honors in the 1974-1986 class.
