Special Interest Cars at Saturday Car Show

Joining the stable of 150 or so Mustangs covering all years and models at the Viaduct Events Centre on Saturday 22 October will be some twenty special interest cars - all located on the third floor. A great mix of predominantly race and street mustangs with several having never been previously seen in public until now. Pride of place however will go to an extraordinary recent build that will have its first public viewing at our car show. This car alone (and it is not a Mustang although it depicts all things that make American cars so special) will be well worth the investment of your time. Many thousands of hours have gone into this build with a budget that will defy belief. The quality of the workmanship will to many trained eyes exceed anything you have ever previously witnessed. Without doubt the most amazing car that has graced our shores in recent times - and built entirely in NZ. The car will literally be unveiled at this event being placed under wraps until the show opening. Guaranteed - you will not want to miss! The car owner will be at the site to talk to visitors and answer questions as appropriate. Don’t miss a trip to the third floor while you are at the Car Show.

As well as the Mustangs on the ground floor and the special interest cars on the third floor, there will be trade stands on the second floor and outside the Events Centre. There is plenty to interest and amaze you, so make sure you cover it all.
For those not registered to attend the Convention, the Car Show will cost you $10 for an adult and $15 for a family.

Carshow & Sunday Run

The Auckland Mustang Owners Club is proud to be host club for the 37th National Mustang Convention, bringing some 200 plus Iconic cars & their owners to Auckland over Labour Weekend.

Those lucky enough to be in Auckland over the weekend of 22nd & 23rd of October can enjoy the carshow at the ANZ Viaduct Events Center in Viaduct Basin from 10am – 4pm on Saturday 22nd where the 3 levels will contain Mustangs from 1964 to 2016 exhibited along with trade stands & cars of special interest. This is a trip from the past to today for all the family in the presence of a marque which has had more songs written about it and attracted more new car sales on launch day than any other car!
Our Charity of choice is Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust and they will have a display on site - don’t forget to support this worthy charity by a gold coin in their bucket collection.

At the conclusion of the show, cars will vacate the venue for the night and assemble again at 10am on Sunday 23rd in front of The Spencer On Byron in Takapuna and convoy to The AMP Showgrounds at Helensville via Kumeu, arriving at Helensville around 11.45am. The Mustangs will be on display until around 2pm as part of the “Art in the Village” being run over the weekend.

Registrations Close Soon

This is a reminder that Convention registration closes on 23rd September.

Our plans are well in hand, with a good number of registrations already to hand, and we can’t wait to bring the 37th National Mustang Convention to you, showcasing our beautiful city and surrounds.

I hope you have your nautical theme dress ups for Sunday night organised and make sure to bring your party mode because we have a great band and we intend to get the joint shaking!

We look forward to getting those last registrations in as soon as possible please.

We will contact everyone closer to the event with driving instructions on getting to the hotel/motel in order to successfully negotiate Auckland’s crazy traffic, also to ask about any special dietary requirements, so watch out for those emails.

Accomodation Update

We have become aware that some people are having difficulty booking into the Anzac Court, being told that it is
fully booked. This is not the case, simply a misunderstanding
.  When you phone to make a booking you need to say you are with the Mustang Convention and want to book one of the rooms being held for the Mustang Convention. If there are any problems, please call the owner Ken on 021480716 and he will sort it out.

Accommodation Update
Bookings for accommodation at Spencer on Byron have been flying in - to the point where the hotel is almost full! There are a few rooms left so if you want to stay at the Spencer you will need to book very quickly.

We have arranged alternative accommodation at Anzac Motor Court, 43 Anzac Ave, Takapuna – just 3 blocks away from the Spencer on Byron, so easy walking distance for the functions. They have the following rooms:

Studio rooms (sleep 2) at $150.00 per night
Triple Units (sleep 3 in the same room) - $170.00 per night
1 bed units (sleep 2 in the bedroom and 2 in the lounge) $185.00 per night.

We have inspected these rooms and they are beautiful – very roomy and newly refurbished. They only use the highest quality beds!

  1st February 2016:
Welcome to the 37th National Mustang Convention to be held from the 21st to the 24th October 2016 and hosted by the Auckland Mustang Owners Club.

Our plans are well under way and this communication marks the start of many over the coming months. Please note:

Our theme

Given we are in the “city of sails” and our venues are close to the water, we have chosen a nautical theme, especially for the Sunday night dinner. We love dress up, so please do your darndest with this theme – surfers, sailors, Finding Nemo, etc, etc – let your imagination run wild!


We have blocked a large number of rooms at Spencer on Byron, Byron Street, Takapuna at the very special rate of $150.00 incl GST per night. Every room has stunning views of a variety of City aspects or out to the harbour. Some are studios and some are 1 bedroom suites. They are all the same price and each room has its own kitchenette. To book, call 0800773623 and ensure you ask for the special room rate for the Mustang Convention. This venue will be the home base for the weekend, with all functions, other than the car show, held here.

Car Show

We have secured the ANZ Viaduct Events Centre for our Car Show. It is located a mere 10 minutes drive from the hotel at the Viaduct in the CBD and is quite simply the most spectacular showcase for an amazing show of the best of American muscle.
We will have plenty on offer at the Car Show itself with three floors of Mustangs, trade stands and special interest cars, and there will be ample areas for you to relax and enjoy the harbour views. Should you wish to venture further the Viaduct and Wynyard Quarter areas are bristling with restaurants, boat harbours, boats of all shapes and sizes, The Maritime Museum, to name a few – there is plenty to see and do. The Ferry Terminal is very close by if you would like to take a trip to any of their destinations while your car is at the show, or perhaps you would like to wander the CBD.

As we progress with our planning, we will keep you updated, but, for now, please secure your accommodation and start polishing the Muzzie! We are looking forward to a great turnout!
We expect to have the registration form available in May.
