Buda, TX – It’s a real testament when an annual car show has been around for 35 years and ‘Stang owners still round up their Ponies early on a Saturday morning to attend…especially when the show raises money for a good cause. That’s the case for MOCA’s (Mustang Owners of Austin) annual Mustang and Ford Roundup we recently attended in Buda, TX (just south of Austin). Cars came from miles around (some as far as McAllen TX, a border town on the Rio Grande) to enter their cars, enjoy the music, and check out the best of Central Texas’ Mustangs. And, the show helped support SafePlace…a charity that works to provide safety for folks “affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and exploitation through campus based prevention and intervention services.” The show averages over 150 cars with the bulk being Mustangs of every year, make, model, and power-train (like the electric motor “Zombie 222” Classic Fastback or a 427 Windsor blocked 2012 S197 Late Model). The weather was slightly overcast for most of the day making it a pleasant day for judges to select two award winners from each of the 27 classes. We had a blast talking with everybody in our booth and continuing to show off our Projekt Ecoboost car (we still get comments like “it’s a four cylinder?” and “can we buy it” (note: everything’s for sale)). Props to Cabela’s who let us loose on their parking lot with thousands of Ford horse-power! #carshows #dallasmustang #moca #fordpower #cabelas #mustang #ford

About Tim Worlitz

I started working on cars when I was 13 years old and have spent the last 35 years in the automotive industry. After graduating from San Gorgonio High School in San Bernardino, CA, I was able to attend San Bernardino Valley College, Cal Poly Pomona, and USC earning Associate of Science, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and Master of Science in Systems Engineering Degrees. I have been fortunate to work in the OEM, OES, Aftermarket, and SEMA automotive segments focused primarily in design engineering, manufacturing, and operations management. I started my professional career at the Subaru of America Tech Center involved in HVAC, Cruise Control, and Accessory Development which allowed me to spend time working with engine and chassis dynometers, data acquisition in lab and field environments cold weather testing in places like International Falls, MN @-40F, hot weather testing in Death Valley, CA @+122F, and conducting vehicle test data acquisition for HVAC and NVH on various closed circuit test tracks in Arizona. While at Subaru I was driver and one of several team engineers involved in setting two Bonneville land speed records in I/Pro class at the 1988 & 1989 Speed Weeks...a record that still stands today. From Subaru, I went on to work stints as Director of Engineering at Thermal Dynamics and Fluidyne Racing Products, Director of Engineering at Wynn's Climate Systems, and General Manager at Standard Motor Products / Four Seasons Mfg Division with operations in US and Mexico. Seeking to exit the rigors of international travel and corporate politics, I became President of Tuskerstone, Inc dBA Dallas Mustang Parts & Accessories in 2015. I am a member of SAE, ASME, & ASQ professional organizations as well as Tau Beta Pi & Pi Tau Sigma national engineering honor societies.
