As they do each fall, Mustangs will once again roar through the Big Bend, bringing 1960s-era Cobras, souped-up Shelbys, and Ford rarities to the normally quiet roadways of Brewster County.
Now in its ninth year, the four-day event based in Lajitas will draw about 100 people and more than 50 hot cars from all over the U.S. and Canada, and will run Wednesday through Saturday, Oct. 4-7.
Board member Dave Durant said, “We host the largest gathering of the Terlingua Mustangs in the world here in Alpine and Brewster County. This year we have Jon Lund Racing coming in to assist with tuning cars. They are world renowned for tuning Mustangs.”
Durant’s exotic car shop in Alpine, the Stable, has the only mobile dynamometer in the area. A car is placed on the device, and it provides simulated road loading for the engine, measuring horsepower, torque, and more. On Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 3-4, Lund’s crew will be at the Stable to evaluate and tune cars participating in the rally.
