Mustang Day: Supercar Sunday Once In A Lifetime
You may ask yourself, is the Ford Mustang a Supercar? Well, in the strictest sense of the word, no. The Mustang is an every-day-Joe, fun, affordable, nostalgic, cool sporty car. Same as it ever was. But last Sunday, the mega-nice folks who organize Supercar Sunday in Woodland Hills, California, actually featured the Ford Mustang…at Supercar Sunday!!
And rightly so, because the few dozen Mustangs that showed up were anything but ordinary. From Jeremy Grossman’s black 2013 GT500 to a 1968 Mustang with 500,000 original miles – DABEEST. Each Mustang that showed up was unique and modified to the owner’s taste and budget. Once lined up, it was a head turning display of cool, stylish horsepower. The very definition of a Supercar.
Now you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile. And you may ask yourself, “Well, how did I get here?”. If you have been letting the days go by, not driving the car of your dreams, then I suggest taking the time to visit a Supercar Sunday in your area. And you may ask yourself, how do I work this? How do I find myself in the pilot seat of a Mustang?
Believe me when I tell you, even the “lowly” V6 Mustangs can be modified and performance enhanced to the point of real excitement. Several of the Mustangs who enjoyed the enthusiastic cruise through Topanga Canyon and the famed Mulholland Drive were highly modified V6′s that turned as many heads as the Big Dogs.
If you asked any of the owners who could not leave well enough alone, and spent money they did not have on their Mustangs, the answer would be univeral – “Yes, it was worth it! And I have more modifications planned!!” – I am looking right at YOU, Rene.
Just seeing men acting like boys and feeling like teenagers again seems to erase the pain of a bad economy, even for a little while, as these cool people have more fun than a human being should be allowed – driving into the blue again, after the money’s gone – with large smiles. But this is nothing new for car guys. It is in the blood, and it always will be. Same as it ever was. Even if it is once in a lifetime…
The cruise ended at Lavaggio for lunch and more pictures. It was a classic Southern California way to spend a Sunday. Thanks Dustin Troyan, Brian Zacuto, Vista Ford, Lavaggio and many others for a great event. Please enjoy the gallery and share your cruise photos in the forums.
