Sunday, June 25th the Mustang Owners Club of California hosted their annual Mustangs (& Fords) In the Park, held at Woodley Park in the San Fernando Valley, Ca. This show was a history making day with the presentation of the Iacocca award as the highlight of the show. For the first time ever, any where, Mr. Iacocca had authorized an award to be presented in his name at the show as recognition for outstanding automotive contributions over the course of time. Mr. Iacocca presented the award to Craig Cunningham, president of Mustang Owners Club of California; also on hand for the ceremonies were Jay Leno and Leon Kaplan. The car show was a fund raising event to fund research for a cure for diabetes, which Mr. Iacocca has been raising money for since 1984 when he lost his wife to the disease. You can read more about this at www.iacoccafoundation.org and donations are welcome.
The day was hot and humid but the weather didnít put a damper on the fun of checking out over 200 Ford products and Mustangs. The performance enthusiasts were well represented by GT500s, GT350, Shelbyís, a Ford Fairlane GT, and an original í65 Cobra, just to name a few. It was obvious from the cars on hand that current year Mustangs are being modified, customized and made to fit the personalities of their owners. Itís like 1965 all over again! Enjoy the pictures.
