2014 FORD MUSTANG CONVENTION
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.
