World of Wheels 2015 Photos

Calgary, Alberta

February 20-22, 2015

The plan for this version of our Club display was to build a scaled-down version of a P51 Mustang bomber used in WWII, flying out of the ground, in the middle of the display.

One again we utilized two build sites, one in the North and one in the South.  This became truly necessary, due to the sheer size of the plane fuselage and the wings.

The intent was to make it quite realistic, including camouflage paint, and a turning prop.  The builds came together very well, and everything worked as it should, on setup day.

With the ideas of our Club members and their talents, along with support from the business community, we put together another great Club Display. We won First Place in Best Club Display this year again.

The Club member cars once again helped make this Club Display a success. The cars displayed included a 1966 Shelby GT350-H Tribute car, a 1967 convertible, a 1968 GT fastback, a 1969 Shelby GT350 Fastback, a 1970 Mach I, and a nearly-new (and already modified) 2015 GT Coupe.

There also several other fine Fords at the World of Wheels, besides the ones in our display.

A very big "Thank you" to the Bomber Command Museum of Canada in Nanton, for allowing us to use one of their Merlin engines in our display. That really helped make the display what it was.  As a postscript to this story, our version of the P51 has now landed at the Museum, and is to be used as part of their display. That is also quite the treat.

Hope you enjoy the cars and the display.
