Mid-America Ford Meet
June 26th-28th we attended the Mid-American Shelby Meet in Tulsa, OKlahoma. Although it was a blazing 103° on Saturday at Tulsa Raceway Park, many Ford and Shelby enthusiasts we able to experience the Roller Hoop first-hand. The event was highlighted by Carroll Shelby as a guest speaker at the banquet, and the car show on Sunday was fantastic.
Mustang 45th Anniversary Celebration
We displayed the Roller Hoop with a rusty convertible Mustang at the Mustang 45th Anniversary Celebration at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, April 16-19th. We received a tremendous amount of response and recognition from Mustangers from around the world. We were amazed at how many people had seen us mentioned in the magazines.
