Special Historical Message to Topeka Mustang Club Members
By Roger Belanger
40 years ago in June 1981, myself and another Mustang owner and friend; Dave Aschenbrenner decided to form a Mustang club in Topeka. In 1980 I owned a 1966 Mustang GT Fastback and Dave had a 1965 Mustang coupe. This is when the Topeka Mustang Club, Inc. was born.
We handed out fliers to all Mustang car owners as we met and had our first meeting at Laird Noller Ford who has been the clubs sponsor since the beginning. Several Mustang car owners showed up; hence we formed the new club and became a reality. We had no idea how many Mustang car owners would get involved as their ages ranged between 16-40 plus years old. WHO would have guessed?? It was and still is a monumental feat, for this club to survive this long and still going strong.
Since 2017 the club became a Mustang Club of America Regional club. The clubs first meeting was held at the Laird Noller Ford service center and then moved around town. The meetings were held at The Pizza Hut located by White Lakes Mall, and several other locations that didn’t last. Eventually went back to the Laird Noller Ford conference center, and now we are currently at the Laird Noller Truck Center/ Quick Lane.
The current member count is between 30 to 40 with but the highest member count was in 1983 with 82 members and since then has been a consistent 30 or more. The membership count changes during each annual renewal process. The numbers changed due to members moving to other states and cities, passed away, selling their Mustang cars or just simply lost interest.
Bruce Wanamaker and Terry Frits were President for a year during the late 90’s (I think). They were the only two who took the president’s office position within the club.
A Memorable Moment from Roger:
Current President (2021, Roger Belanger), his first Ford Mustang car was a 1966 GT Fastback with factory 3-speed, AC, candy apple red, black vinyl interior and he was the second owner. One time, during a White Lakes car show in 1982, the original owner from St Joseph, MO spotted the Mustang and “stated my parents bought me that Mustang for a graduation present.” Who would think, back then from nowhere, the original owner would be at that car show as a spectator viewing all the Mustangs.

40Th Anniversary of the TMC Inc. Event
Celebrating 40 Years of the Topeka Mustang Club Inc.
When: Thursday, August 26, 2021
Where: Viking Bar & Grill, Topeka Ks.
The Topeka Mustang Club celebrated its 40th anniversary on August 26th with dinner at Vikings Grille. The celebration was attended by 20 members & family members.
On August 26, 1981, the articles of incorporation for the Topeka Mustang Club, Inc. were filed and officially recognized by then Secretary of State Jack H. Brier. One of the founding members of the club, Roger Belanger, is still associated with the club and currently serves as our President.
A fun time was had by all at the celebration as you can see in the photos. We look forward to many more years of fun with the Topeka Mustang Club.
The primary function of the TMC is to provide owners and
supporters of the Ford Mustang an atmosphere of camaraderie
and a place for members to show off their Mustangs at local and
national car show events, cruise-ins, and learn all about their
Mustang. All of this within a family-friendly environment.
We have something for everyone to enjoy.
