TUCSON, Ariz. – Each year, the Mustang Club of America selects a handful of special regional Mustang show venues to be elevated to “MCA National Show” status, drawing the best of the best from the Mustang collector community. For 2017, the MCA Nationals show series kicked off in sunny Pensacola, FL, during the last full weekend in March before setting its sights on Tucson, AZ, for the May 12-13-14 weekend.
Like they did for the “Spirit of the Sun National Show” back in 2015, the MCA had tapped the Old Pueblo Mustang Club of Tucson to host this event at the spectacular Casino Del Sol Resort. Some 200 Mustangs faced the MCA judges in this desert venue, which included a Pony Trail Drive before a Friday night banquet (with The River Road Ramblers providing the Dixieland band musical entertainment and Ford Performance providing the keynote speaker). There was also a Saturday night poolside party with food, drinks, and a live band playing Top 40 oldies, as well as the Sunday awards ceremony.
We took a break from our Mustang poster giveaway duty at the Ford Performance Meet & Greet tent on Saturday to walk the showfield and shoot photos of some of the hottest rides we could find there for you enjoy in the gallery below:
