On Sunday 20th March, Haynes Ford invited Kent Mustang Owner's Club for their Monthly Meet. After the success of 2015's Mustang Revealed weekend, we promised the Kent Branch of the Mustang Owner's Club that they could use our forecourt for one of their monthly meetings. This saw 22 different Mustangs on the forecourt of Haynes FordStore, ranging in years from 1969 to 2014. The performance cars brought along by the Kent Owners Club showed just how much Ford's iconic Pony car has changed throughout the decades.
With refreshments provided, the club stayed until well after lunchtime, enjoying the weather and the space for onlookers to look around their vehicles. Many took the opportunity to test drive Haynes own 2016 V8 GT demonstrator, with reviews from those used to driving the Left-Hand Drive models being very favourable. It was a pleasure to host such an event for the club and we look forward to doing it again after our Showroom Upgrade is completed.
We attended Motors by the Moat at Leeds Castle, where our new Focus RS demonstrator had its first outing with our Mustang. The RS and Mustang were on show side by side. This local event provided a stunning backdrop for photo opportunities for the public. Thanks to both Spencer Hart and Andy Hinkley for their time in attending this event.
After last year's successful event, Haynes Ford were again invited by Harley Davidson to take part in their annual Independence Day celebration at the Harley Davidson Aylesford dealership. Last year, Haynes displayed their classic Mustang but this year were able to take the new V8 demonstrator and rival the new bikes for engine performance. The afternoon consisted of American Rock 'n' Roll, BBQ food and a collection of bikers, who did all seem to be just as interested in 4-wheeled performance as their usual 2-wheels.
