On June 24, 2017 we hosted our annual Mustang Show at Discovery Ford. The event was organized by Preowned Sales Representative, Ezio D’Ignazio with proceeds supporting Carpenter Hospice. The Ford Mustang is such an iconic vehicle and is enjoyed by so many that it is a perfect medium to gather support for an amazing cause.

Carpenter Hospice

“Carpenter Hospice is a home in the heart of Burlington that offers both residential-based care to people in the last stages of their lives, and community-based programs for people dealing with grief or a life-limiting illness. It lets residents spend their final days together with loved ones in an environment that is peaceful, comfortable and meaningful. It is staffed by a dedicated team of professionals and volunteers who provide compassionate palliative care to meet residents’ every need and ensure that each moment matters.”

Golden Horseshoe Mustang Association

The Golden Horseshoe Mustang Association (GHMA) is a member driven car club that has been in operation since 1995. As a member of the GHMA, Ezio invited other club members to bring their Mustangs to Discovery Ford so that the public could enjoy them. Check out the photos below!

People’s Choice Winner

Congratulations to Glenn Zdriluk for winning the People’s Choice Award for favourite Mustang at the show. If you missed out on seeing Glenn’s Mustang, you can visit the Downtown Burlington Car Show on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

The winning vehicle was a 1965 Mustang Fastback, 2+2. Glenn and his family restored the car over a 13-year period. It originated from California. The colour is Honey Gold, the engine is a 289 4 barrel carburetor, 4-speed manual transmission.

On top of winning the People’s Choice Award, Glenn won the $1,000 gift basket and the 50/50 draw of which he donated all of the winnings to Carpenter Hospice.

Ron Baker of the Downtown Burlington Show presented the winning plaque to Glenn. The Burlington show has no further spaces available for cars making this a great opportunity for Glenn to show off his car. Thank you to Mr. Baker for supporting the Mustang Show and allowing the People’s Choice Winner to be involved.
