It has become trite cinematic shorthand to establish a character’s “coolness” by having them drive a Ford Mustang, ’64-’66 models, of course. An understandable impulse, because, other than Judd Nelson, who doesn’t look positively happ’nin’ behind the wheel of the great American sportscar? To further the auto’s myth, the National Mustang Association is presenting the National Mustang and All Ford Show. More than 90 24-inch trophies will be awarded (Best Bondo? Fewest Miles to the Gallon?). Whether your name is Sally or not, you’d better slow your Mustang down and head over between 9 a.m.-4 p.m. to the Abyss Scuba Center, 6455 Old Alexandria Ferry Rd., Clinton. $10 to compete; FREE to spectate. (301) 856-7889. (Dave Nuttycombe)
