At one time during it's 26-year history, the annual Mustang Roundup in Bellevue, Washington, was simply a Mustang show. That time has long since passed. The Roundup now qualifies as a true event, and your intrepid scribe hit the full four days full bore on July 13-16, 2006.
Organized and run by the enthusiastic Seattle-area club, Mustangs Northwest, the love-fest for Ford's ponycar offers something for almost every enthusiast-from the concours restorer, to the street-oriented hot-rodder, to those wanting to make fast tracks on the same tarmac as Parnelli Jones once did. Seattle weather is normally stellar, and the area offers plenty of distractions should an out-of-towner tire of the automotive overload.
Check out the images from the '06 show and consider making a future trek to the Pacific Northwest during the third weekend of July.
