The Midwest Blue Oval Club is in the process of building a 1965 Mustang convertible for The Joshua Center which is located in the Kansas City area. A new body has been furnished by Dynacorn International. A donor 1964 ½ Mustang convertible was also donated by a family in Lawrence, KS. We are in the process of tearing down the donor car and we will shortly have a list of parts that we are seeking to complete the build.
Once the car is complete, it will be toured to various car shows in the Midwest to have people look at the car, learn about the car and to raise awareness for the Joshua Center. Once the tour is complete, we will be auctioning the car through Mecum Auctions and 100 percent of the net proceeds will be donated to the Joshua Center.
The Joshua Center is a non-profit organization that provides services and support for the social, emotional, and educational needs of neurologically impaired children and their families, including children with Tourette Syndrome, Aspergers, High-Functioning Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder.
Those who have children or siblings with any of these impairments know that getting understanding support can be quite difficult. But the Joshua Center provides a variety of programs for children and young adults, including counseling, social skills training, life skills training, school support, an accredited summer camp program at the Rotary Club Youth Camp in Lee’s Summit, MO. Plus they provide education and assistance for parents and teachers.
