Our partnership and friendship with National Parts Depot stems all the way back January of 2017, a few months before the inaugural Ponies In The Smokies event. We loaded up in a big Ford rental van with all the #PITS crew and as many buddies as we could fit and headed south for Ocala, Florida to the 23rd Annual NPD Ford & Mustang Round Up at the near by Silver Springs State Park. We had high hopes of bringing NPD on as a sponsor, but really just wanted to check out their iconic show for the first time. The Ford & Mustang Round up, a show that would span 24 years in total, was highly considered on of the must attend Ford shows this side of the Mississippi. It was also the pride and joy of National Parts Depot and their staff. After setting up a dinner meeting through a mutual friend, the rest is history!
National Parts Depot came on as a sponsor that first year, only to become our title sponsor the following year and every year after. We are proud to be associated with a family owned company like National Parts Depot. Rick, Matthew and all the guys and gals at NPD are huge supporters of the hobby we all love and have become family to the PITS Crew over the years. Be sure you check them out for all your Mustang restoration needs and many other model lines as well. See their website below that connects you to a wide range of inventory within four warehouses across the country!
Thank you Rick, Matt and everyone at NPD for your continued support of Ponies In The Smokies!
