Northern Utah Mustang Owners Association began in 1996. Initally NUMOA was sponsored by and meetings were held at Super Ford in downtown SLC. NUMOA is recognized by the Mustang Club of America as the local MCA regional club.
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. Today Champion is Larry H. Miller Ford Lincoln Mercury of Sandy and is still generously sponsoring NUMOA. We thank them for their ongoing kind support of NUMOA.

IMAFS: 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. 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. 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.
The MCA National and IMAFS was moved to Park City for the National due to access of better amenities. Park City Chamber of Commerce and special events coordinators have been enthusiastic supporters of our presence in their city. IMAFS is the first and only car show to be held on the historic downtown Main Street. Again in 2008, MCA came to Park City and IMAFS with NUMOA hosting the Grand National show.
OTHER ACTIVITIES: NUMOA members participate in many other local events. We regularly attend JC Hackett cruise-ins throughout the summer season. NUMOA has had displays the past five years at the Motor Trend Auto Expo. We were the first local club invited to have such a display. Members 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 is also developing a terrific relationship with the Miller Motorsports Park. We attend race events and hold our own PONY CROSS at the track.
CHARITIES: 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, 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.
