All vehicles welcome at 2013 Cajun Mustangers car show

By By Jordan Gribble / Special to the American Press

The Cajun Mustangers will hold their

11th annual car show on Saturday at Tarver Ford in Sulphur. The show,

which used to be

open only to those who owned a Mustang or other Ford model, will

now be open to cars of any make and model — making the show

a car enthusiast’s dream come true.

Registration for vehicles will take

place from 8 a.m. to noon for a $25 registration fee per car. Each

participant will also

receive a T-shirt, goodie bag, dash plaque, lunch and eligibility

to win one of the show’s 30 prizes. Entry is free for those

not entering a vehicle into the contest. All proceeds from the

event going to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Event organizer Ralph Unglaube said he expects the show to have more cars than ever before.

“We usually have anywhere from between

50 to 75 cars, but that was when we only allowed Mustangs and other Ford

vehicles in

the show. Now that the show is open to any class of show vehicle

we’re expecting anywhere from a 100 to 125 vehicles. Other

than the cars, we’ll have barbeque, a chance for people to win

some money with raffle tickets, and live music. Everyone will

have a good time, it’s a really good family event,” he said.

Unglaube said the show will offer plenty of chances for cars to win prizes.

“We’ll give out trophies for things

like best engine, and best paint job. We’ll also have prizes for best

choice, and for

every category, we’ll give out trophies for the top five. For

instance, if you have a Mustang, we’ll have a category for Mustangs

between the years of 1964 and 1973, and we’ll give out five

trophies for that. We’ll give out over 30 trophies altogether,”

he said.
