DEARBORN - If you've been waiting for that one, extra-special enthusiast event to attend this summer, this is it: Register NOW for one of the biggest Mustang & Ford shows (up to 900+ vehicles) in the country, hosted by MOCSEM, one of the biggest Mustang clubs in the USA – all in Ford's own backyard. It’s the annual "Mustang Memories All-Ford Show & Swap" held on Sunday, August 20th at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, the day after Ford Motor Company dominates Detroit’s annual Woodward Dream Cruise.

The big Sunday show this year features the “2017 Bullitt Nationals” where fans of the Mustang Bullitt model have a variety of events planned in the week leading up to the Mustang Memories show, which also includes goody bags for pre-registered cars, judging, trophies, a huge vendor midway, swap meet and car corral, food vendors, 50/50 drawings, feature vehicles – even Mustang “

If you've never attended the Woodward Dream Cruise in suburban Detroit, then you're missing the biggest one-day automotive event on the planet. And with Ford’s recent announcement that it will be the primary sponsor for this year’s cruise, you can bet it’s going to be better than ever!  Ford fans, the best way to experience Woodward is to take a stroll in “Mustang Alley” where several hundred Stangs of every vintage dominate the Ford display along 9 Mile Road every summer. This year, Ford’s Mustang Alley during the big cruise is set for Saturday, August 19 – but to reserve a parking spot in Mustang Alley, YOU NEED TO REGISTER YOUR MUSTANG.
