Own a Ford Mustang? Want to bring it to THE best Mustang owner show to attend in the region? Then you'll need to register your car, and do it fast!
Spaces are very limited and they sell out quickly.Only registered cars can gain access to the show - which in 2013 will be held on the Heritage Flight Museum's ramp at Skagit Regional Airport!!
This is the place to register your car!
Important things to know:
- 2013's show is being held at HFM's new facility at Skagit Regional Airport.
- Registration opens Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at 9am.
- Gates open to registered attendees at 8:00am on the morning of the show, and they close at 9:00am. Do not arrive early, do not arrive late!
- Be prepared to spend the day enjoying the flying, all the other cars, awards and generally good weather. The gates remain closed until 3:00pm when you will then be able to leave the grounds.
- The third weekend in August is fairly quiet in the Skagit Valley - unlike in Bellingham! Nonetheless, it is highly advisable that if you wish to overnight for this show that you book your rooms sooner rather than later. Additional information will be sent via email after you register.
- The show takes place on a secure air field, thus the militant times on the coming and going! Once everyone is in, each car is checked in, photographed and parked, in no particular order. Patience is the theme of the day.
- Every car is individually photographed with a P-51 Mustang. Photos are available for free download after the show.
- Props & Ponies is a fundraising event for the Heritage Flight Museum and is run entirely by volunteers. It is a fun, family-friendly event.
