Tags: events, all ford day, ford, mustang, shelby, cobra, falcon, anglia, escort, ford muscle car club, brent shaw

You may have noticed that the KiwiMotoring blog has been a bit quiet lately, as I have been flat out trying to manage the large number of upcoming events that are being listed, while fulfilling orders from the online store, competing in Rounds 3, 4 and 5 of the Mazda Pro7 Racing Series, and trying to keep up with 'peak season' of my design and marketing business... the list goes on.
