On Sunday, June 13, 2004,the Greater Toronto Area Mustang Club will host its 4th
Annual BBQ and Show ‘n Shine event. Held on the grounds of Ford Motor Company
of Canada’s headquarters in Oakville, Ontario, the gathering is the largest of
the GTAMC club’s fifteen-event schedule for the season.
This year, the event is being run in support of the MADD Halton/Peel Chapter.
The club will donate one half of the entry fees – $10 per show car (spectators
free) – in addition to other funds raised at the event.
“GTAMC is a growing club and we want to keep all our members coming back,” said club President Fab

could be overlooked in the spirit of a joyful event.”

and classic Mustangs, as well as an amazing assortment of other Ford
enthusiast vehicles. Several other Toronto area Ford clubs participate in the event,
including Ford Truck World – Ontario Chapter and the Golden Horseshoe Mustang

spectators will be able to check out the vendors and exhibitors, as well as a
performance parts swap meet. Food and drinks will be available and a DJ will
keep the atmosphere lively. Many club and event sponsors are supporting
raffles and door prize giveaways through the afternoon.
