Every Saturday Morning until May 12th 2018 at 8:30 am, some of us will meet at a restaurant, tell a few stories and have a few laughs with Breakfast to start the day off with our Mustang friends. GHMA members & friends are welcome. This year, Stan & Dave C. are doing it a bit differently in that we plan to move it around to give more members a chance to attend. We’re starting this Saturday at Sunbeam Grill 2501 Hampshire Gate, Oakville, ON., http://www.sunbeamgrill.com/ I hope to see you there. – George O’ Hearn
Introducing our new GHMA Executive for 2018:

Mustangs are our passion!
We drive them, race them, restore them, preserve them and just plain enjoy them. The Golden Horseshoe Mustang Association was originally started as a Classic Mustang club in 1995 by a core group of Classic Mustang enthusiasts in the Greater Toronto Area. Over the years we have become an all years Mustang club and one of the largest Mustang club in Canada.
We participate in various events, car shows, travel, charities and much more throughout the year. If you interested in the car hobby, our many social events, then please feel free to attend one of our monthly meetings held at the Ford HQ in Oakville Ontario or Contact us for more info.
