Muscle Car Review - - Sturgis Mustang Rally -

With the ex­cep­tion of the Roush Ban­dit Mus­tang (cen­ter), the Stur1gis Mus­tang Com­mit­tee wisely ro­tated dis­play cars. Shown in this photo are Dean Mathias’ 1968 428 Co­bra Jet (left) and a 2018 Mus­tang GT (right) ex­hib­ited by spon­sor Scott Peter­son Mo­tors Ford.

3like The Mus­tang Trailer–spon­sored bar­rel-rac­ing event proved that,

au­tocross, a rea­son­able de­gree of skill and dex­ter­ity is re­quired to ne­go­ti­ate the tight course with­out com­ing in con­tact with a bar­rel. Ron Miller “herded” his 1969 Shelby GT350 around the bar­rels, ex­hibit­ing a wild driv­ing style that de­lighted the crowd.

Set­ting up for the show posed a bit of a park­ing prob­lem on Dead­5­wood’s some­what nar­row main drag, but with ev­ery car parked in its proper place, things calmed down and the show ran flaw­lessly.

went hot again. Shan­dra Gron­seth wheels her hubby’s 1966 Shelby G.T. 350H around the au­tocross dur­ing the ladies’ seg­ment with in­tense con­cen­tra­tion.

7Coupe Al and Judy Har­wood won First Place in the 1965-1966 Mus­tang

class with this ab­so­lutely flaw­less 1966 Mus­tang. The mir­rors placed on the ground be­low it were no idle brag; this is a con­coursqual­ity Pony­car top to bot­tom!

8 Dean and Shelly My­ers’ blue and sil­ver 1971 Boss 351 cap­tured First in class at Stur­gis. Judg­ing from the Wyoming van­ity plate (HER71) there’s no doubt whose car it is.

9 Michael Kennedy pre­pares his candy-blue 1967 Mus­tang con­vert­ible for judg­ing in the 1967-1968 Con­vert­ible class, where the rag­top did quite well. 10 One of the ear­lier stops on the Poker Run tour was at ti­tle spon­sor Scott Peter­son Mo­tors Ford out­side of Stur­gis, where Peter­son dis­played his Raven Black 1969 Boss 429 Mus­tang (KK-1488).

Floyd and Donna Opp are the proud own­ers of this 100-per­cent 11 orig­i­nal Mus­tang GT fast­back, which com­peted in the Coupe/ Fast­back class.

12 Main Street Stur­gis was trans­formed into a sea of color and chrome for Satur­day’s Show and Shine. Tom and Ch­eryl Heir­ing were a huge hit with their “his and hers” 1973 Mus­tang Gran­des. The story goes that the Bright Green Glow car served as their fam­ily car. Tom later pur­chased the Medium Aqua Grande to re­store. Once he and Justin Eich fin­ished the car, it was time to have Justin re­store Ch­eryl’s car. Both cars were class win­ners.
