Car show features classics to cutting edge

SUISUN CITY - Some of the most popular classic cars in automotive history will converge Saturday on the Suisun City waterfront when the Golden Hills Mustang Club hosts its show.

Although dominated by Mustangs, cars built as far back as 1928 will be on display, vying for show awards, according to the organizers.

Participating vehicles in the show will be eligible to get participants' choice awards based on their appearance.

More than 80 cars, running from a 1928 Ford Model A to this year's Mustang models, are registered for the event. Music will be provided by DJ Joe LaTona of Awesome Classic Sounds.

People who want to enter their Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicle must be at the show between 7:30 and 9:30 a.m. The cost to enter a car is $25. The actual show starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.

A portion of the event's proceeds go to the Child Assault Prevention Project. For more information, call Dennis Vontaine at 452-1422.

The Golden Hills Mustang Club was founded in 1982 to preserve the legacy of the Ford Mustang and has put on their car show for 21 years.

Its 90 members recently adopted the Downtown Suisun City Park 'n' Ride to keep the public facility clean and well maintained. The group has already held one clean-up day, bringing not only brooms and shovels, but their Mustangs as well.
