Six-Cylinder Mustang Show the Weekend After Labor Day
Mustang Six Association’s National Car Show: Six-cylinder Mustangs to converge on Mustang, Oklahoma on Sept 12, 2015
The Mustang Six Association’s (M6A) first National Car Show is going to be held in Mustang, Oklahoma on Sept. 12, in conjunction with the Oklahoma Mustang Club’s Stampede Car Show, as part of the city’s Western Days, held annually on the first full weekend following Labor Day. This year’s Western Days theme is Hometown Heroes, the festivities will be held at Wild Horse Park and the Mustang Town Center, and the whole town gets into it. The stores are involved in a decorating contest, there’s a carnival, a competitive chili cook-off, a rodeo, a pancake breakfast on Saturday, and a parade honoring Hometown Heroes, First Responders, and the military, but for us gearheads the main attraction is the car show on Saturday.
This year will not only be M6A’s first national-level show, but also the first-ever car show exclusively for six-cylinder Mustangs of all years. Sponsored by National Parts Depot, there will be four classes, each one broken down by year into nine divisions, and there will be First through Third Place trophies for each one, in addition to specially made trophies for the best inline-6 and V6 cars, presented by M6A. Most of the action happens on Saturday the 12th, but on Friday the 11th there’s a cruise on Route 66 from the host hotel to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, then a visit to the Oklahoma City Memorial, lunch in Bricktown, and then a visit to the Oklahoma Centennial Monument. Take your camera, because there are supposed to be a bunch of photographic opportunities during the entire weekend. You can get more information about the show at Mustang6Association.org.
M6A was started a little over two years ago and is an online association dedicated to six-cylinder Mustangs of all years. They currently have over 600 members in 14 countries around the world. They also have a Facebook page and are in the process of having an M6A forum on their website. They publish an online magazine, The Six Banger, which features articles and pictures of members’ six-cylinder Mustangs along with articles of interest pertaining to six-cylinder Mustangs, which is sent to members every three weeks. The mission of M6A is to promote the six-cylinder Mustang and show “It’s not just a six, it’s part of the legacy and history of the Mustang!”
