RESTOMODS IN RENO: June 2-4, 2017

Upcoming here in the Reno/Tahoe area in the next week or so is one of the bigger Mustang and Performance Ford shows here in the west. Hosted again by the Mustang Club of Reno, it will be at the Peppermill Casino in Reno on June 2 to the morning of June 4, 2017.  For the last couple of years we have not had our GT3 SCCA/IMSA Mustang over at the show, but we do plan to have our race car there this year I think just for Saturday the 3rd for show. The last time we were there was for the 50th Anniversary of Mustang, sponsored by Ford Performance, in 2014. There is always a great turnout of western region Mustangs,new and old, and a showing of a few Cobras and other performance and Muscle Fords.

We were hoping to have another one of our associates cars there for the event this year as we are trying to finish up a 1970 Grabber Green Mach 1, but appears will not make it in time, however it may be out for Hot August Nights later this year in early August. Also some additional filming will be done with our bright yellow notchback to complete the 3rd episode of “Wheels N Motion” a YouTube production that will be completed end of next month.

We are posting just a few pics from last time we attended but stayed tuned and come back in the next week or so for new 2017 event pics and then the video link(s). Until then,

TACH IT UP……….!!!

    We had a great time at Restomods in Reno. We had not been out for this event for a couple of years since the 50th show with FORD. Thought there might have been a few more cars this year but the ones there were a good cross section of Mustang Heritage.
