Shelby Spring Fling Celebrates 42 Years

For over four decades, Mustang owners have been gathering at the Shelby Spring Fling in Nashville, Indiana. For 2019, the Shelby Spring Fling is being held at the Brown County State Park in Nashville from May 17th through the 19th. During the show, events will be held that the entire family can enjoy, including a Saturday car show, chili picnic, and an evening awards banquet.

Unlike the ShelbyFest 2019 show held in Jefferson City, Missouri which is open to all makes, the Shelby Spring fling is open to all Mustang’s and Hi-Po Ford cars only. The Shelby Spring Fling held its first event in 1977 and is hosted by the Indiana SAAC.

Registration for the event is open now, and the host notes that if you want a room or cabin at the Abe Martin Lodge, you must pre-register. While SAAC club members pay $25 to register for the event, late registrations and non-members will pay $35 for two people to attend. Younger Ford owners from 18-25 years-old can register for $20, and if you want your classic ride Concours judged, the entry fee is $50.

Registrants have to pay for a room with their registration, if a room at the venue is needed, with a lodge or annex room going for $109, a Lodge patio room is $115, a family cabin is $173, and a smaller cabin is $79. All prices are per night and require a Friday and Saturday stay.

Events kick off on Friday, May 17th with a Pony Trails cruise on curvy country roads. Saturday, May 18th is the big show kicking off at 9 am. The event sounds like fun, and the Saturday car show has classes for every type of Mustang in all years, and other Ford Motor Company products including Mercury. There’s even a class for kit cars powered by Ford.
