32nd International Mustang Meet Photos

This show was held in Spokane, WA during the long weekend of   September 2-5, 2011, and hosted by the Inland Empire Mustang Club. 

Spokane has now hosted the International three times since its inception, with the other times being in 1991 and 1997. This years Show and Shine was held at the host hotel, Northern Quest Casino and Resort. The weather  was quite nice for the entire weekend, and seemed to get warmer as the weekend progressed. A lot of us had not seen many of the Mustangs and other Fords that attended this event; so there was lots to look at, and everyone had a great time. This turned out to be the largest International to-date, with 528 cars registered. There was still room in the parking lot, as it was one of the larger parking lots many of us had seen. Once again there was certainly a large contingent of the '05-'09 Mustangs and Shelbys, as well as a good number of 2010-11's. Some of the other Fords and Mercurys included Fairlanes, pickups, Falcons, Torinos, and more. This included Sunbeam Tigers and an original 427 AC Cobra. There were a large number of modified Mustangs, SVTs, lots of early fastbacks, and as has been seen across North America at other Mustang and Ford shows, a huge percentage of the cars on hand are 2005 and newer. This trend is certain to continue. However, as is often the case at the "American" Internationals, there is still a large number of the early Mustangs; 1965-68.

AMAC members certainly showed up in droves, and were noticed in Spokane. It appears that 64 Club members brought a total of 34 cars to the weekend, and collected 28 trophies for the Show and Shine. The Club also brought back the "Club Participation Award" for 2011. As well, members participated in the other events including drag racing, autocross and cruises. A full listing of trophy winners can be found on the Spokane website, at http://www.inlandempiremustangclub.com/ .

There was great hospitality put on by Spokane, and with a lot of volunteers this was certainly a successful weekend; for which they can be very proud of. Hope to see you next year in Winnipeg, MB.

Here are just a few of the photos taken that weekend.
