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. This year also marked the 50th anniversary of
World of Wheels here in Calgary.

once again helped make this Club Display a success, with of course
(4) yellow cars, and (2) blue ones. The cars
displayed included a 1966 Shelby AC Cobra, a 2006 Roush Coupe, a
2004 SVT Cobra convertible, a 2002 Mustang GT Coupe, a 1969 Shelby
GT-350 Fastback, and a modified 2008 Shelby GT-500 Convertible.
There also several
other fine Fords at the World of Wheels, besides the ones in our
Who knows what our
Club will create next year for the display?
Hope you enjoy the
cars and the display.
