2017 Mustang Rally of the Finger Lakes - Schedule

A benefit car show featuring the Ford Mustang.

This fundraiser will be celebrating its 9th anniversary in 2017. The car show was established to provide support to our county's Habitat for Humanity and other local charities. It is run by a core group of friends that wanted to give-back to the community. The organization is 100% volunteer and all net proceeds are returned to the community.

Friday August 4th, 2017 - Mac's Drive-in Restaurant

On Friday from 5 until 9 it's dinner at Mac's Drive-In. Mac's is a 50's era drive-in restaurant with authentic carhops and casual food located on Route 5 & 20 in Waterloo, NY. There is always a great grouping of nice cars on Friday nights.

Due to the NASCAR race scheduled at The Glen there will be no Thunder Road tour this year.

Saturday August 5th, 2017 - Mustang Rally Car Show

The Rally Car Show is a fun event to show off your Pony, meet new friends and visit with old friends. Judging for our different classes is done by a group of volunteers who will decide which car, in each class, outshines the rest. No formal judging forms are used. Car Show registration opens at 9:00 Saturday morning with the event running from 10:00 am to the award ceremony at 3:00 pm. At 3:30 the show cars are lined up and participate in the Phelps 50th Anniversary Sauerkraut Weekend Parade. The Mustangs will line-up two abreast and be featured at the front of the parade. At the end of the parade the cars are welcomed back to the car show site to watch the remainder of the parade, meet with friends or park to enjoy other Sauerkraut Weekend events.
