Car enthusiasts will find the Redstone Center a welcome venue next weekend as the 13th Annual Intermountain Mustang and All-Ford Stampede (IMAFS) comes to Kimball Junction.
The car show, organized by the Northern Utah Mustang Owners Association, is expected to feature 120 to 130 privately owned Ford cars. According to Mark Platt, Co-Chairman for the IMAFS show, roughly 80 to 90 of the cars will be Mustangs.
"We're showing off all of the muscle cars from the beginning of Ford to the present," Platt said. "It will be showing off all of our hard work that we've put into some of these old cars."
The Redstone Center will be closed to automotive traffic for the event, which is to be held Friday and Saturday, August 16 and 17. Proceeds from the event will fund a scholarship for Salt Lake Community College's automotive department.
For many previous years, the IMAFS show was held on Park City's Main Street but has taken place at Redstone Center for the past three years.
Platt says that there will be over 50 trophies given out this year based on different car classes. A panel of qualified independent judges will issue awards, the number of which will be based on the number of entrants in each class.
There will also be raffle prizes, auctions and a banquet dinner to be held along with an awards ceremony at Newpark Resort. On Friday there will be a Pony Trails Cruise during which around 100 Mustangs and Fords will be cruising the area.
Platt, who will be putting one of his own cars into the show, a 2011 Ford Shelby Mustang, says he is excited to get to know the Park City area more as well as the Ford/Mustang community.
"I enjoy going for the social aspect of it getting to meet new people that have a lot of the same interests that I have," Platt said.
Online registration for the IMAFS show is now closed. For the schedule and more information, visit numoa.com.
