World of Wheels 2011 Photos

Calgary, Alberta

February 18-20, 2011

Our Club Display theme this year was the  "Club Memories and Events". The real intent was to showcase the many events and activities our Club is involved in each year. It includes being committed to supporting local charities, putting on our annual Club event - the Presidential, supporting and volunteering at the long-running International Mustang Meet; held in a different locale each year, as well as many other activities (Spring Fling, Poker run, and others) that also include spouses and children.

Most of these six Club cars had not been involved in the World of Wheels before, nor had most of their owners. There were certainly many new memories created this year and new friendships made. Many, many volunteer hours by Club Members were spent in designing, constructing, and setting up this display, along with the other items submitted for display at this show.

Once again this year it was a very hard-fought battle with the Club Displays! We won Third Place in Best Club Display again this year, as we were beat out by a very good display from the Northern Mopars Auto Club who finished First, and the Iron Indian (Pontiac) Auto Club finishing in Second Place.  I expect we will all be back next year, and we expect the competition to again be fierce. Our Club will need to come up with another great theme and display to stay "in the money" again next year. There were also several other Mustangs at this Show, with photos of some of them are also posted here.

In fact, Albert organized a large display of 12 vehicles; many of them Mustangs, along with several of the vehicles with "other" manufacturer badges on them. It sounds like they all had a great time as well. Part of their fun included having legendary NHRA drag racer Don Prudhomme make a personal appearance at their display, and autographing multiple items.

A new activity this year during the weekend was a timed-event engine building competition, involving small-block Chevy engines. Two Club members, Bill and Martin signed up for this and had a great time during the practice sessions and the actual event. They finished "out of the money", but it was certainly a fun time.

Hope you enjoy our cars and our display.
