The North Texas Mustang Club and Five Star Ford Dallas will honor the late Dallas Early morning News car writer Terry Box Saturday at a car or truck exhibit in Dallas. The Mustang Club states it expects up to 50 autos at the function at Five Star Ford at 8900 West President George Bush Turnpike in Dallas.
The Honoring Our Buddies Vehicle Show will final from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and 5 Star Ford is giving refreshments. The tribute to Box will commence at 11:30, and Jerry Reynolds (The Car Professional) will also converse about the occasion and his memories of Box on his morning radio demonstrate on WBAP (820 AM) from 9 to 11 a.m.
The organizers say that anybody who appreciated studying Box’s tales in The Dallas Morning News is welcome.
Box, who died in January at 71, was an automotive author and columnist for 26 of his 35 decades at The Dallas Morning News. He was a admirer of Ford Mustangs and owned many of them in his life span.
Brian Huth, general manager of Five Star Ford Dallas, claimed Box was a “true motor vehicle male and will be missed by quite a few. Terry was highly regarded by all of the area’s car or truck dealers and all of the automobile writers, not just regionally but all of the Texas Vehicle Writers Association.”
Box’s daughter, Shawn Flemmer, mentioned: “My father was larger sized than daily life, even though he had a tiny stature. He lived and breathed cars, starting off at a young age he would title just about every vehicle by make, model and year as they were driving down the avenue. My dad was these kinds of an awesome writer and truly liked what he did — how several men and women land a dream work of driving great automobiles and writing about them?”
