Shelbys Down Under
The 2016 Shelby Nationals Australia Mustang Round-Up
Forget Crocodile Dundee, didgeridoo music, and kangaroos. When you think of Australia, hot American musclecars should come to mind since they’re super-popular on that island continent, and Shelby Mustangs rank right near the top of the Aussie food chain. The Registrar for the Australian Shelby club, Nez Demaj, just sent us this summary of the 2016 Shelby Nationals to show some of the action from the event.
It was that time of the year for the Australian Shelby Nationals/Vic. Mustang Round-Up on a very cool day which still resulted a display of 13 Shelbys and over 250 Mustangs. One of the Australian Shelby Registry members from New South Wales (which is about 700 miles from the event), drove his ‘69 Shelby G.T. 500 to the show, which was a great effort to support the Shelby display. Mustang Motorsport organized another nice display of vehicles, and it was also a great effort from the Shelby and Mustang Owners to attend this annual Mustang event on an ordinary day with poor weather conditions. Thanks to all of the Shelby Owners, Victorian Mustang Club, Mustang Motorsport and S.A.A.C. for their support, as well as Darryll Ashby for attending and assisting with the Shelby display. We’re looking forward to next year’s event, which hopefully will see better weather.
