For my second show of 2003, I went into an all stock
class. It was years 1979-93. All body styles. Most were convertibles
so I felt right at home. It was an overcast day. At times I was
sure it was going to rain. Thankfully it did not. I was placed next
to a 1993 yellow feature Mustang. It had less that 6,000 miles!
I had my new sign displayed with my car. I also made
a stand for it. It seemed to get a lot of attention. It's nicely
framed in red for a patriotic color scheme.
As it happened, I was in a line of red white and blue
Alas, no trophy this time! Both cars on either side
of me did get one, though.
Some people at the shows I have attended seem to
know about the Feature Mustangs. Others do not. For 2003, I am plan
to display a sign when I show my car. It describes what makes my
car unique. This is not original idea; I have seen many other cars
with signs. I looked into buying one but they cost $150 and up.
So, I did it myself.. It was much cheaper since I made it with materials
I already had lying around. And, I wasn't limited in terms of graphics,
fonts, amount of text, etc. I did the layout for the sign using
many of the same tools I use to build this web site.
It measures approximately 16" x 20". It
is framed in red in such a manner that I can hang it in our reckroom
where I have many other Mustang items and it fits in perfectly.
These are the images that I used as the source for
the pictures on the sign:
These are some of my other favorites from the day I took the pictures
