Northern Utah Mustang Owners Association began in 1996. Butterfield Ford which used to be located in Sandy, UT became a car show sponsor in 2001. After Butterfield became Champion Ford, part of the Larry Miller group, the sponsorship grew. We are now sponsored by the Larry H. Miller Super Ford Dealership and we are grateful for their support.
Members participate in many local events. NUMOA has monthly meetings with speakers and/or activities. We regularly attend JC Hackett cruise-ins throughout the summer season, car shows, cruises, parades, and events. NUMOA has had displays the past couple of years at the Auto Expo. We were the first local club invited to have such a display. Members also proudly show their ponies at the annual Auto Rama. We caravan together to several out of town shows and events such as the Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup and Wells Fun Run. NUMOA has also developed a terrific relationship with the Miller Motorsports Park. We attend race events and hold our own PONY CROSS at the track. Check out our schedule on our event calendar.
NUMOA is registered with the state of Utah as a Non-Profit organization. Since the first car show at Valley Fair Mall, NUMOA has made contributions to charities. We’ve donated to the Women and Children’s Shelter, Utah Food Bank, and Carroll Shelby’s Charity. In 2003 NUMOA created a Mustang Christmas tree which was sold for over $1000 at the Primary Children’s Festival of Trees. IMAFS profits have annually been donated to the Primary Children’s Medical Foundation. A contribution was also made to Lee Iacocca Diabetes Research. NUMOA is the first car club to make contributions to “Thanks 2 Frank. com.” NUMOA participated in a fund raiser to help the town of Wells, NV after a devastating earthquake. Members also are generous to help out fellow gearheads in times of need as in 2016 when we raised $6000 for our member Jeff Page who was paralyzed in a biking accident. In 2017 NUMOA donated $4,000 to Shriners Hospitals for Children. This year’s charity will be the Fisher House in Salt Lake City that houses families of military and veterans while they receive treatment at the VA Hospital.
IMAFS: (Intermountain Mustangs and Fords Show)
The first NUMOA car shows from 1996 until 2000 were held in the Fall at the Valley Fair Mall in West Valley City. In 2001, the Intermountain Mustang & All Ford Stampede, a three day event, was begun in Heber City, Utah. For the past 5 years, the event was held in Park City Utah. In August 2017, The Homestead Resort in Midway, UT was the host and will be again for the 2018 show. For more info on the 2018 IMAFS, click here. IMAFS includes a Pony Trails mountain cruise, car show, BBQs, and Auto Cross races. We’ve had Mustang and Fords, Mustang Monthly, and Mustang Times photojournalists attend IMAFS numerous times. See some of those articles here. This has given several NUMOA members the opportunity to have their cars published in national magazines.
With the success of IMAFS, NUMOA leaders wanted to share our fun. We were accepted to host a 2004 Mustang Club of America National show. It was the first Western US MCA National show in many, many years. Since then MCA has become more popular and more National shows are coming West. In 2012 we hosted a Second MCA national show in St George Utah and hope to host another one sometime in the next few years.
