Shelby Mustangs in Australia
Shelby Mustang Day at Lorbek Luxury Cars in Melbourne Australia
After a successful day at last year’s Shelby Mustang display at Lorbek Luxury Cars in Port Melbourne Victoria (Australia), I thought it was time to organize another outing. But this time, it would be great to bring all Mustang owners together and invite the three major Mustang companies who deal with Mustangs everyday, so I asked Mustang Motorsport, Harrop, and Herrod Performance to join us on our special Mustang day. Also invited was the Melbourne Mustang 6G Club so their members supported the day with over 50 plus Mustangs. The Australian Shelby Registry and the Victorian Mustang Club members were of course present as well.
The Mustang display started at 9:00am but there were over 25 Mustangs there by 8:30am which shows the enthusiasm amongst the owners of these beautiful machines. There were food, ice cream, and coffee vans which were going down well with the Mustang Owners and the public. Lorbek opened their doors for all for the event, and quite a few members were admiring the exotic cars on display within the showroom. On this special day, there were a couple of trophies that included the Best Presented Melbourne Mustang 6G Club Mustang, which Brett Carroll (of the Melbourne Mustang 6G Club) won for his late-model. and the Best Presented Australian Shelby Registry Shelby, which Rob Erztec (Australian Shelby Registry and Victorian Mustang Club) won for his ‘66 Shelby Hertz. Mustang Motorsport and Harrop donated their merchandise to the winners as well, which was a nice touch.
Overall, there were 86 Shelbys and Mustangs on the day. Thanks to the Shelby Owners, Melbourne Mustang 6G Club, Vic. Mustang Club Members, Mustang Motorsport, Harrop, Herrord Performance, and also Srecko and David Lorbek for their support...
