The South Central Kansas Mustang Club was founded by Charlie Sawyer and Barry and Helen Leopold in February 1993. They provided the focal point needed to spark an interest in Wichita for the appreciation of the Ford Mustang and other special Interest Ford cars. The Club is affiliated with the national organization, Mustang Club of America (MCA).
The Club had 47 original members, and as of this writing (02.15.2009) 208 members. The club continues to grow steadily and encourages Mustang owners to join, but also any Ford lover. The first car show the Club attended as a group was the Lake Afton “All Wheels” Car Show in June 1993. There were approximately 70 Mustangs out of 1400 total cars in attendance.
A Club Banner was designed and adopted in time to display at the Lake Afton Car Show. The banner sports a Mustang on a red, white and blue fender tri-bar and has the appearance of a horse running through a Kansas wheat field. The banner logo later became the letter head for the Club newsletter, and other correspondence. The Club banner is still used at car shows, such as regional and national Mustang shows and other all brand car shows in the area.
If you are interested in the club or a new member just reading this for the first time, we welcome you and encourage you to meet our club members at our monthly meeting. To current and new members alike we hope you will share in the activities to maintain a successful club. By accepting and abiding by a few necessary rules in the Club by-laws this should be an easy task.
Some important things to remember about being part of any club are the times that are shared and the fun that is had by all. These ingredients are needed for any organization to be successful, and they are nourished by fellowship. Active members equals a fun and successful Club.
The club currently meets monthly. Normally this is the third Sunday of the month at 3:02 in the afternoon. The normal location is Rusty Eck Ford, however there are a few times during the year that the meeting is included as part of a car show, such as the Lake Afton Show. Just check the Website or the Newsletter. We try to have 4 – 5 club activities annually, including a picnic in September and a Christmas party in December.
