Mustangs in the Park
The Mustang Owners of California Club and Galpin Ford hold the annual Mustangs at Warner Center Park show.
The annual Mustangs at Warner Center Park in Topanga Canyon was another great meet-up and car show hosted by the Mustang Owners of California Club (MCOCC) and sponsored by Galpin Ford.
The MOCC, based in nearby Van Nuys, was established in 1978 and boasts of many longtime members but is also open to anyone that shares their Mustang passion. Galpin is oftentimes named the Number One Ford dealer in the world, having been in the San Fernando Valley since 1946, and still owned and operated by the Boeckmann family. They have a long history of community support.
The MOCC had well-represented Mustang history on display. The standout was an original 1966 Shelby G.T. 350 (Shelby Registry #367) owned by retired film editor Tom Albert. Hank Williams, who is well known on the car show circuit, brought out his fan favorite 1965 Cobra Mk II (CSX2227). Hank, who is almost 80, is the original owner of this iconic Cobra. There were only three cars painted in its "Princess Blue" color. He was a longtime friend and associate of Carroll Shelby and has a lot of stories about Carroll and the Shelby history and is willing to share them. If you see him at the shows, we encourage you to spend some time with him. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
Two black beauties caught our eye: A 1967 Mustang GT convertible and a 1968 Mustang GT California Special (GT/CS). It was immediately evident that all the MOCC (http://www.mustangownersofca.org/) Members truly cared about their cars and had a personal connection to them.
