Everyone came home with one of a kind trophy. We also won the "Club Participation" trophy and Bill and Janet won the "Furthest Traveled" trophy. After the show we went into Nashville for a bite of dinner.

Falls City Mustang Club hosted its 20th Mustang and All Ford Show and Pony trail June 19th and 20th . Friday morning we had 26 cars brave the elements as the Pony Trail started out in rain and it rained all the way to the Cummins Engine Plant In Seymour In. In the plant we watched a 15 min safety film and were off on the tour. We saw various production lines of different size engines from 19 liters to 95 liters. After the tour we left and went to the Pines Restaurant for a very good lunch and a chance to win great door prizes. Leaving the Pines the Sun was out and we had a dry drive home which didn't last long as the clouds blackened the sky and our Cruise In was cut very short. Saturday morning brought more rain but workers showed up at 6:00am to assemble tents and set up the show site. As we had rain off and on all morning show cars did show up and patiently waited for the weather to brake. Everyone stayed in good spirits as the sun finally came out after lunch and made for a pleasant afternoon and successful show. THANKS to all of you who stuck it out the make this a great week end. And a SPECIAL THANK YOU to all of the CLUB MEMBERS giving their time to make the show successful.......... Steve (President)
