With more than 50 car clubs holding a cruise-in and having their cars on display at Auto Fair, I wound up making plans with one of them for the next morning, so I made it an early night.
This past weekend I hopped in my Mustang, aka Project Road Warrior, and headed to the Charlotte Auto Fair in North Carolina. I pulled up to the Charlotte Motor Speedway late Friday afternoon and decided to check out the swap meet. Before my 1965 Mustang became a fancy project car, this was where I came to look for parts.
CHARLOTTE, NC – When I was getting some work done on the official Team Mustang Girls’ 1965 Mustang at Classic Speed and Custom in Charlotte, NC, recently, I discovered that the legendary Holman & Moody race shop was just down the road.
The weekend of February 25-28, 2016 saw the 19th Annual Mustangs & Mustangs: Legends Havin’ Fun car show, hosted by the Imperial Mustang Club of Polk County and held in part with Carlisle Winter Auto Fest at the Sun N Fun Lakeland Linder Airport in Lakeland, Florida.
All in all, we had an amazing time at the Mustang show and the Winter AutoFest by Carlisle Events. The show was huge and had something for everyone, so it’s one event I plan on adding to my calendar next year.
2015-where do I begin? A year ago I was working on getting all the parts for my car’s restoration as Mustang Monthly’s Project Road Warrior. I had done an engine swap before and painted the car so I thought I knew what I was in for, and this time I had all new parts so it would be easy, right?…
Our Project Road Warrior 1965 Mustang coupe’s maiden voyage, barely after starting for the first time, was to hit the road from South Carolina all the way to Las Vegas for the 2015 SEMA Show.
If you’ve followed the web and Facebook postings we’ve done on Project Road Warrior, our ’65 Mustang coupe, you’re probably aware that the car is finally road worthy! For its test-by-fire, we entered it into the Goodguys Road Tour that goes from Loveland, Colorado to Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Day 2 on the Goodguy’s Tour started out with a drivers meeting then we hit the road heading south for New Mexico, then east to Amarillo, Texas, and the Mustang was running great after the tune from Josh of Goolsby Customs the night before.
It’s day three of the Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour, and I am determined to have zero trouble with Project Road Warrior today!
Day 4 of the Goodguys Road Tour started off in Oklahoma City. It was a long day with over 500 miles to trek so they skipped the normal drivers’ meeting, and we were all free to leave on our own.
Here were are on day five of the Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour, with the finale beginning in Memphis, Tennessee with a driver’s meeting. All of the participants were sad and shocked that the trip had gone by so quickly-can we have three more days please?!
