An Orange classic car owner walked away with a People’s Choice win on Saturday despite not having entered his vehicle at a car show before. Kiel Bugden brought his 1968 Ford Mustang to the Australian National Field Days market day and car show at the Borenore Field Days venue on Saturday and said he was surprised when he won the trophy. “It was my first time putting the car in a show,” he said. Mr Bugden said he had owned the car for years and was a member of the Auto United and Mustang Owners clubs and said he did not know why he won. “There were a few Mustangs there, but maybe it was the color that drew people in,” he said. “There were cars much more expensive than mine [and] certainly rarer cars than mine.” However, he conceded that the car was well built with attention to detail and that he did much of the work himself.
