The 2014 Ford Mus­tang con­ven­tion and ex­hi­bi­tion will be hosted by the Can­ter­bury Mus­tang Own­ers Club in Christchurch over Labour Weekend, Oc­to­ber 24-27.

Mus­tang con­ven­tions have been held an­nu­ally in New Zealand for the past 34 years, and the 2014 event prom­ises to be big­gest and most dra­matic ever, cel­e­brat­ing the very spe­cial 50 year an­niver­sary of the iconic and leg­endary Ford model.

In­ter­est in all as­pects of the Mus­tang her­itage and the ex­cit­ing fu­ture of the Mus­tang brand is also ex­pected to grow through­out 2014, as the news continues to build up to­wards the in­tro­duc­tion of the new global RHD Mus­tang in New Zealand in 2015.

Plan­ning is well ad­vanced for an ac­tion packed three-day con­ven­tion, in­clud­ing a spe­cial wel­come func­tion on the Fri­day evening, the ex­hi­bi­tion and dis­play on Satur­day, per­haps New Zealand’s largest ever “pony run” on Sun­day, a gala cel­e­bra­tion din­ner and prize giv­ing Sun­day evening, and a pos­si­ble track day at Rua­puna on Mon­day.

With over 2000 Mus­tangs in New Zealand own­er­ship, and over 700 mem­bers across the seven re­gional Mus­tang Own­ers’ Clubs, record at­ten­dance lev­els are ex­pected for this spe­cial 2014 con­ven­tion. Any Mus­tang own­ers in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing this 2014 con­ven­tion who are not presently a mem­ber of one of these clubs should sign up for mem­ber­ship now (at­ten­dance and par­tic­i­pa­tion is re­stricted to paid up club mem­bers). Club de­tails can be found on www.nz­mus­tang.com.

Reg­is­tra­tion de­tails are ex­pected to be ad­vised via the clubs in April 2014. These de­tails will in­clude ac­com­mo­da­tion rec­om­men­da­tions, spe­cific tim­ing for the events to as­sist travel plan­ning, and the reg­is­tra­tion fees that will ap­ply.

In the mean­time, a spe­cial por­tal on www.nz­mus­tang. com will pro­vide reg­u­lar up­dates as con­ven­tion de­tails are pro­gres­sively fi­nalised and com­mu­ni­cated, and as news of the sup­port­ing spon­sors are an­nounced.

Any en­quiries re­gard­ing the over­all plan­ning for the con­ven­tion should be di­rected to ChChCon­ven­tion@gmail.com, or to the Con­ven­tion Con­vener, Peter Ged­des, on 027-355-5965.
