So today I woke up at 6:45 AM and headed to the Wild West Mustang Show in Concord at Buchanan airfield. My dad was setting up a vendor's booth there and I tagged along to earn some cash, to see some cool cars, and take some pictures.
My dad sells diecast cars, stickers and patches. He mostly sells at car shows, but has also done antique and toy shows. Since today's event was Mustang only, he brought all Mustangs. One of our most unique items is the "rust-o-rods" where my dad takes a diecast car, rusts it, beats it, paints it different colors, makers it dirty, etc, then mounts it on a theme board. These are supposed to look like cars you'd find in some field. And they are a big hit. Today he had all mustangs done. Here is one.
The rest of our merchandise is your standard diecast cars, mostly in the 1:64 scale and mostly from Johnny Lightning.
There was over 300 Mustangs at this show. As long it was a Mustang, you were allowed in. So we had everything from a couple 1964 1/2 all the way to the 2007s, even the most dreaded Mustang of all, which I shall reveal soon.
I took most of these pictures in my walk around the area, shooting what looked good or interesting. I'm not the bets photographer and the people there didn't make it easy to shoot, but I did the best I could.
This is a P-51 Mustang. As this was held at an airport, they brought it out. On Friday Mustang owners could park their cars next to it for a picture.
A Shelby next to our booth.
There was quite a few in this color.
I love the color on this one. Not a fan of the convertibles of this style though.
This is an Air Force MP Mustang. Believe it's an 1989
Plenty of the late models out there. The black makes it too blocky
A modernized version of the car from "Bullit"
Not really a fan of this color. It doesn't scream Mustang
The flames on this one were beautiful
Told you this color was popular
A Fastback, unsure of year.
Another Shelby. The scoop in the front bugs me
Black is of course a very popular color
