Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup, Steamboat Springs, CO

The Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup is held in June over Father’s Day weekend every summer. It is a fantastic place to see Mustangs from every model and design together in one place. I have attended the last few years with the 2012 Mustang GT from Western Wyoming Community College, the Home of the Mustangs. This is the best Mustang show in the Intermountain West.

Here are some of the highlights.

DSCN4777

An original Shelby GT350S. The S denotes the Paxton supercharger this rare animal is equipped with.

A rare fox body SVO turbo. An interesting car even if the headlights are always crooked.

DSCN4796

The best Fox body at the the show.

DSCN4908

A fox body Mercury Capri with the turbo 4 cylinder.

I didn’t think I could like a fox body as much as I like this one.

Ford Maverik with a 302 V8. The poor man’s Mustang. The Ford Maverik is nothing special but this one was pretty cool.

1988 ASC McLaren Mustang… yes that McLaren. A rare specimen.

DSCN4930

1967 with a modern 5.0 Coyote under the hood.

DSCN4770

A most excellent 69. Perhaps the best in the show because it is so well done and so clean.

DSCN4949

That sweet 69.

DSCN4962

A custom Mustang pickup with a bail of hay in the bed. It’s to feed the other Mustangs.

The WWCC Mustang has had some work done. All new intake and exhaust other than the headers, we’ll get to those eventually.

If this is a replica it’s a very good one.

RMMR has hundreds of Mustangs on display, but you probably only need one or two Mustang II’s.

DSCN1549

How about twin turbos feeding a supercharger? You can see each turbo below the each headlight.

DSCN1535

Anything Ford is allowed including this Marauder. It’s pretty much got a Mustang engine under the hood so you might as well.

DSCN1522

Shelby Daytona Coupe. Considering Shelby only made six of these back in the sixties, anytime you see one at a car show it’s a replica. This is a very nice replica however.

DSCN1521

That looks like a 289 V8 but original Daytonas didn’t have a 4 barrel Holley.

DSCN1520

Shelby Daytona Coupe, looks great from any angle.

DSCN1502

Ultra-custom 65.
