I'm back from the American Muscle Mustang show.

I drove up to Media Pa. from Daytona Beach for the show. Round trip was 2,103.05 miles. Stayed in Elkton Md. for a few days and drove around Wilminton Delaware. I used 70.96 gallons of 87 octane at the cost of $259.88 and my average MPG was 29.637 Miles per gallon for the trip. When you consider my car only had 716 miles on it when I left Florida and I ran 75/85 MPH most of the time until I got north of Richmond and it was a lot of stop & go traffic the last 250+ miles up to Media Pa. A cost of 8 cents a mile for gas at the $3.69+ a gallon of gas costs was not really to bad.
It was a really nice road trip and the show was way better then I could imagine. I took my dog Mario with me and he is a great riding companion.




It was a great trip and I'll probably go again next year.

I did get up early and tried to meet up at the shopping center but got there about 8:20 and I guess I was to late. If anyone was there they were gone when I arrived.

Man you just missed us we probably left about 8:05 we all followed Dan from AM. I saw your Pony at the show. I loves the sign about the trip up, the rain, and no time to clean her. Hopefully next year we can all meet up again and get a bigger crowd of ME folks together. that's some great gas mileage.

I'll be there next year... Looking to keep the V6 trophy in the ME family too...I'm looking at dumping about $4000 in my Stang next spring... Plan on lowering it with Ford lowering springs get a set of the new 19" AMR gloss black rims, have the cars paint refreshed and buffed with the 18" wide racing stripe painted on... Having the front chin spoiler side and rear skirts painted to match the car, upper and lower grilles painted gloss black. All lights will be blacked out should be real clean looking just like this years winner... Can't wait till next spring!!!

Thanks for making the trip out! We hope that it was worth the drive and we'd love to see you again next year. Can you PM AMDanBailer over your contact info? I want to hook you up with something for driving all the way to our show!

Re: I'm back from the American Muscle Mustang show.

Hi Chris,

I did PM Dan my information.

I'm going to be saving up some $$$ as soon as I get this trip paid off to go next year. I can't believe your show was sooooo great. Even my dog Mario had a great time.
