The Intermountain Mustang and All-Ford Stampede is a bit more laid back and easy going for us than some other trails; that may be why we are going back after last year's fun run. Last year we ran from arid hill to lush mountainside and enjoyed the ride while perched in (and sometimes out of) a '71 Mach 1. Add to that an autocross available to participants on Friday and you have a good, long, busy day. Saturday's show is big, but not so huge you can't take it all in. some interesting stuff always shows up to make us smile. Last year it was one of the original 30 automatic-equipped Cobras. This year? Who knows? We do know you'll have a big time.

Kentucky is a wonderful place. We've been there before for another job and can't wait to go back again for the September in the Park '04 Mustang and Ford Weekend Getaway Show. This show promises a great deal of fun and frolic. The Trail is one you won't want to miss. Though we don't have the details yet (Ron Kinberger is still ironing them out), we will have the final info on where we're headed and what we're doing next month.

Park City, UtahIntermountain Mustang and All-Ford StampedeLest you be confused, this is the same show we attended last year in Heber, only this year it's in Park City. If you went on Pony Trails last year, you'll remember we blazed through Park City on a portion of our trek. The location is spectacular, and we are excited to be going back to this lovely area.

Though the show is not huge (average attendance of 200 or so cars), it is a friendly and hometown-feeling show. We enjoyed our visit to this locale so much, we decided that once was not enough and we're charging back to Heber, er Park City, again this year. We look forward to the excellent cars and good food we found in the area. If you're close by, you should consider coming. we'll see ya there!

Seventh AnnualSeptember in the ParkSeptember 10-12, 2004

From all reports, the September in the Park show will be one to remember. As of this writing, Ron and his cohorts have put together a show that will feature some of the best fun we've had. Rumored activities include a country and western dance night, as well as other activities. This event is open to all Mustangs and other Ford-powered vehicles. According to the flier, "This weekend is packed with beautiful cars, fun, food, and entertainment, and is a great way to spend a fall weekend with your entire family. You don't need a car to take part in the festivities. Bring your blankets and chairs and spend a weekend in scenic General Butler State Park. Let the children play games, ride the train, and make new friends at this family oriented event while you enjoy viewing vehicles from as far away as North Carolina and New York!"

We can't wait!
