    Hi from Dean

    Hi everyone, I'm a relatively new Mustang owner. Got lucky, found a 2007 Shelby GT500 red & black convertible with 4,000 miles last August. Boy is it a ton of fun to drive. So I'm new to the whole car club thing but seems like fun. I haven't been able to make any of the Thursday meetings and now seems they stop for the summer. What are they like? And can someone give me some details about the June cruise? And what are cruises like in general (like the Warrington one, etc)? Thanks, look forward to meeting you at an event soon.

    Hi Dean,

    Welcome to the forum. The cruise is really what is known as a Cruise In. We don't really cruise anywhere. We meet at the Firehouse look at each other's cars, chat, eat burgers and dogs and just have a relaxing evening together. If the weather is good, come out and visit with us.

    What Bob and Dan said - welcome and the cruise is more of an informal car show than an actual cruise - though we do have some of those as well. We will be cruising from Dublin to Beckys drive in on Saturday.

    Dean,

    Welcome! I attended Ford Natiomals at Carlisle with the club this weekend (1st time). We had an awesome weekend, not just at the Carlisle show but dinner with club members, and sitting in the parking lot after dark hearing some cool stories and laughing sitting in front of beautiful Mustangs. When we left for Carlisle on Friday morning we meet up with two other club members at a rest stop then cruised up together, I got to stare at a 1970 Boss the ride up ( Thank you Rich) thumbup:

    The reason I joined this past Feb was because the board members are extremely friendly, and how active they keep this club! As long as it stays this active and members continue to be like family you wish you had, I will always be a member of this club. I just wish I found it sooner!

    The cruise is at the fire hall where we have our meetings. Instead of a regular meeting, we have a cruise-in at the fire hall and also grill up hamburgers and hotdogs. It's also at an earlier time, 6 PM.

    So it's not really a cruise in that we don't go anywhere... Just sit in the parking lot and talk about how fast we COULD get some where if we weren't eating!
