Sunday April 13, 2014

Pony Drive

Well folks, we're only days away from the Ford Mustang's big 50th Birthday celebration. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited! I'll be heading out to Las Vegas for the big Mustang Club of America celebration this week.

Some folks got an early start on celebrating. For instance, the Mustangs Across America group kicked off their cross-country trip on Thursday in Los Angeles. Today they'll be driving from†Midland, Texas to Dallas, Texas. Then tomorrow they're off to Jackson, Mississippi. You can follow their journey here.

Meanwhile, folks participating in the Great American Pony Drive have also begun their journeys to one of the two Mustang Club of American Celebration events.

And last, but definitely not least, Shelby Mustang fans kicked of their 300 mile Shelby Run from Palm Springs, Calif. to Las Vegas, Nevada today.†The†road trip is being hosted by the Pacific Coast Team Shelby Region club and is a kick off to the 2014 Shelby Vegas Bash which leads up to the Las Vegas Celebration on Thursday.

To all of my fellow Mustang enthusiasts out there on the road this weekend, stay safe. I'll see you in Las Vegas!
