ST. GEORGE – The Southern Utah Mustang Owners Association has been taking advantage of the warm weather and longer days.
The club has members that range from teenagers to those who remember when gas was .20 cents a gallon, some 50 years ago. These folks aren’t letting the current price of gas keep their muscle cars in the garage.
“We recently had our first cruise to Springdale, it was great success considering the rain,” said Vice President John Hienz. “The club members don’t only drive Mustang’s, all cars, people and families are invited.”
Many of the cars are later models, but there is a mix of vehicles. They have a couple of Falcons, a 1970 Eliminator, and a 1968 Cougar racecar. Plus, two 1940’s Fords, one is a stock convertible and a another that’s a custom hotrod. It has been updated with all the modern accessories like seatbelts and air-conditioning.
Currently, there are about 30 members and you don’t have to be a collector or a mechanic to join. Many of these people are very community oriented individuals looking to mix their desires for performing service with their passion for cars.
In the near future, the Southern Utah Mustang Owners Association will be hosting several events, including The National Mustang Show.
