David J. Beeke Ford & Mustang Show
This car show will feature Ford Mustangs, with special emphasis on 80s/90s Fox Body Mustangs and other Ford vehicles.
The memorial car show will celebrate classic cars and honor the life of passionate car enthusiast David J. Beeke, a Kalamazoo-area Foxbody Mustang restoration expert who sadly was lost to cancer a few years ago. David’s family and friends started the annual event as a tribute to David, and this year will bring the event – and David’s Mustangs – to Gilmore Car Museum’s historic 90-acre campus. A portion of event proceeds will be donated to the West Michigan Cancer Center, a 501c3 nonprofit based in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
