National Convention 1979
The first ever dedicated National Mustang Convention: Taranaki
" My mum and dad (Val and Ron) used to be involved lots with the Waikato Mustang Club, .... so I found these old ones of dad's from the 79 convention in Taranaki... Dad used to have a 65, 69 and 71 (Boss 351) They're all sold now and I found a photo of mum and dad at the Convention (on the net) which was so neat!! Dad passed away from cancer last year, but I know he would have loved the site!". Julia Hadley.
