Celebrate the Six-Cylinder Mustangs!
On October 1, 2016, the Mustang 6 Association (M6A) will hold its second annual show for six-cylinder Mustangs of all years
The V8 Mustangs get the majority of the press, but as we’ve reported in the past there’s a Mustang club that eschews the 289/302/351/4.6/5.0 engines in favor of the venerable inline-6 and V6—the Mustang 6 Association, or M6A. Dedicated to honoring all of the six-cylinder Mustangs out there, from the early car’s inline-6 to the modern V6 in the 2016 Mustang, M6A has been growing steadily in membership (they are up to nearly 1,200 members in 17 different countries around the world) and is about to hold its second annual car show in the appropriately named town of Mustang, Oklahoma on October 1.
New this year will be an evening car show hosted by the Oklahoma Mustang Club (OMC), as a part of Cool Autumn Nights, which will be started as the M6A’s show ends, at the same location. There are a couple of changes to this year’s show; M6A's show will have a non-judged section for all Mustangs—they will be parked in an area away from the six-cylinder Mustangs that are being judged. The Cool Autumn Nights show OMC is having is open to all Mustangs. There will be separate registrations and registration fees for both which are available online
There is also a new trophy that will be presented at M6A's show this year, the "Marlene Hines Award." Marlene Hines was the wife of one of the longtime M6A members Jon (JJ) Hines. Marlene passed away suddenly right before the Mustangs at Manassas Show in May. Undaunted, because he said it was what his wife would have wanted, JJ attended the show in Manassas, displaying a picture of his wife along with her club shirt when he showed his car. JJ and some of his children will pick a six-cylinder Mustang that they think Marlene would have liked best, and this will be a part of all future M6A National Shows in Mustang, OK.
National Parts Depot (NPD, NationalPartsDepot.com) returns as the corporate sponsor and once again had made a very generous donation to M6A for the show. The other primary sponsor is Resurrections from Rust (https://www.facebook.com/resurrectionsfromrust/), which specializes in first generation Mustang restorations.
