23rd Annual NPD Ford & Mustang Round Up Photos

Well the “sunshine” state wasn’t so sunny in Florida on Saturday, but it was still a nice showing of Mustang’s and Ford’s for the guys from National Parts Depot at the Silver Springs State Park in Ocala, Florida. The state park is a great setting for a car show and provides a fresh of breath air as far as car show locations go. Instead of walking rows of asphalt parking spots, you get to work your way through the outskirts of the state park. In fact, I wish we would have had more time to explore the park itself, maybe next year. While the car count was down from years past according to the guys at NPD, it was still a fine collection of not only Mustang’s but Ford’s as well. There was also a nice mix of early Mercury Cougar’s on the property. A dozen or so vendor’s added to the mix to make a very enjoyable show. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a somewhat wet January day!

Mustang Week 2013 Recap

2013 Mustang Week is in the books and I’d have to say it was one of the most fun and successful ever! Lets take a look back at our coverage from the week! In each blog entry you will find a link to hundreds of pictures from that day!

Saturday 7-13

We rolled into town with a pretty easy trip down, just a little 501 traffic, but nothing major.

Sunday 7-14

Sunday is always a quiet day at the beach. But in 2013 there were more cars arriving early than ever! We didn’t do much, just hung around the hotel and enjoyed the ocean!

I didn’t make it out to Darlington so I don’t have any pictures from drag night! Sorry!

The end of the line for Mustang Week 2013! Saturday was a busy day from photos shoots to the fox body cruise to the cruise in to the Save-A-Fox giveaway!

I headed out early Saturday morning to join some of my fellow SEFB members for a little photo shoot with Mr. Turner.

I didn’t take a ton of pictures at the cruise in but CLICK HERE to see them!

That cruise in brought Mustang Week 2013 to an end! But keep reading! There is more coverage!

Each year at Mustang Week and most other events that I cover I usually don’t edit my pictures at first. I’m not out there taking pictures to get the perfect shot, I’m out there to taking pictures to make those who aren’t there feel like they were! But after things settle down I do like to play around with some shots. Check them out below!
