Mustang Club & National Show

While my ’13 is unique with the Silverhorse quarter windows, her rocker stripe and the (in process) California Special pedestal spoiler, the car, while exceptionally good looking and different, is certainly not a classic or a show car.

Anyone here in the Mustang Club of America? I see they are doing a National show in St. Augustine FL and from what I have read there will be numerous S197 series cars joining the 400 or so cars already registered for the event.

I have participated in car shows with my 1938 Studebaker President and my 1963 Studebaker Avanti(with factory Paxton supercharger) however I just don’t see the merits in “showing” a car like mine at such an event.

Please tell me what I am missing here.

Thanks,

RWSRWS

Mustang Club & National Show

Any car can go to a car show. Take it, you'll have a great time.


Adventure till you drop.

=====================================

My point EXACTLY !

I am hoping someone here can tell me what it's all about.

I can understand taking a Ford Model A, either of my Studes or a '69 Boss.

but to take a 3 year old Mustang......... What am I missing?

still thinking about going but..........

If you can't see what it's about, don't bring it. I don't think we can explain to you why your car is show worthy.

To each their own.

Mustang Club & National Show

If you want to take that 3 year old Mustang to a car show then do it. Only justification you need is you want to take it. Period.
Hell, I'm going to be taking my basically stock 07 GT to shows with my other cars. Why? Because I want to take it to the show. Only reason I need.

Adventure till you drop.

Some people like to see what people have done and are doing to newer cars. Everybody's not into looking at antiques. Quite frankly I enter mine in the car show just to get a good parking spot. Where I don't have to worry about it getting dinged or getting put in some muddy parking lot.

another added benefit is I don't have to tote a trunk full of spares and tools like I do with this one.....

I have to agree, that a newer car does not belong in a Show, I can understand a cruise or a cars and coffee, but to participate in a show for trophy or award, never made sense to me, it is a new factory assembled car after all. I normally go to shows as a spectator, and get so turned off by new car participation, that I dont even bother looking at the newer cars. I like to see classics and cars that are quite aged and are either in very good condition, or at have some restoration performed. To take a fairly new car and add some bolt on appearance items, in my opinion, does not merit it being a show car. Realistically it's not much different than going to a dealer showroom, and looking at the new cars on display to decide which to purchase.

^ I had that same ideology until I got my Mustang. Classics do not compete with Modern in shows around here. Both have their respected divisions.

Registration for the actual point judging "show" closed on March 25th or so.

I would be doing DISPLAY ONLY which suits me just fine.

I think this will be FUN plus I'm in the show but not IN THE SHOW !

Will be nice to see the other cars and the vendors as well.

1963 Avanti promo ad follows below.




By the way, the FIRST real muscle car - sporty & powerful 2 door with a long hood and short rear deck was the 1955 Studebaker Speedster, whose success inspired the 1956-57 Golden Hawk, followed by the Avanti which broke 13 factory stock car records at its introduction.

Nice to see a Studebaker enthusiast on the forum. Love to have a 50 Champion. There's a white Supercharged (factory) Avanti here that's drop dead gorgeous.

At 72 years of age I like new cars. Having owned NEW GTO's Corvettes, Buick GN's Hot rod's and my share of Mustangs starting with a ordered new 1969 428 SCJ Mach 1 with Drag pack. I like new and always worked hard to be able to afford new. Just talking smack I guess. Forgive the outburst.

O.K.

I'm IN for the (not judged) display part of the show.

If I'm lucky my new FACTORY California Special deck lid spoiler will be back from the paint shop in time for me to install.

PRESS ON REGARDLESS !
