I went to this show when I was stationed in Tampa. This is one of the best Mustang get togethers in the country. I highly recommend you go if you get the chance. This is truly Mustang heaven. The park is awesome and there is more to do there than just look at cars. That is if 1500 cars is not enough for you LOL.fficeffice" />

Doesn't it say something for the people who drove a long way for a 1-day show, knowing that they wouldn't be eligible to win any classes? I'd say those people are just as much of enthusiasts as anyone else who stayed both days.


Edit: And I'll add a big thanks for even having it. It's the best venue I've ever been to for a show and I wouldn't miss it whether it was 1-day or two!
Don't worry, I wasn't aiming my comment at you, but surely 600 other Mustangers didn't coincidentally have family plans as well for Sunday.

But I sure don't like to put all the work and resources into the show, and then have to pay to ship awards to winners who are sitting home watching a ball game. So I have a rule that you need to be present to win, and this year only a few classes didn't have the 1st-place winner present, which was actually darned good.

But in the end, you've gotta follow the will of the people, and I'm wondering if the people (on balance) would prefer a 1-day event. In any case, I'm glad you enjoyed it, and hopefully (there's alot of turmoil currently as to who will be running the park next time around) we'll see you again next year!

Thanks for the compliments you'll. Maybe I can make the show next year....wouldn't be the first time I've driven it to FL. A lot more comfortable ride than one of my mustangs would be.

There just isn't enough you can say about how great the show was this year. Weather could not have been better- (I remember the snow!).Lots of cars to see, too many friends to catch up with, and NPD really went overboard helping us out when we had a problem with the 69. The store even opened after hours to exchange a radiator that would not fit so we were ready to go for Sunday morning, back into the show. If you're anywhere near central Fla, sign up next year, as it only gets better.

I have to agree with PonyDoc. A great show. But I had a blast on the "tour" to Cedar Key. It was the first time for me and I had a ton of fun! Rented a golf cart and covered a lot more ground than I could on foot. Spent some money there as well....good for the economy. Can't wait 'till next year!

Did the Pony run take a different route this year ? Usually goes up I-75 to 326 then out through horse farm country. Just curious.

We loved the show and the weather was great...lower 80s and sunshine. More than just Mustangs to look at and the park was fun also. Food and drink prices a little high but not as bad as Cowboys stadium in Texas. We will go again and might even go when they have those other cars.

We've eliminated I-75 because it was getting too dangerous with the line of cars extending up the off-ramp waiting to turn onto CR326.

Now we turn west on SR40, and zig-zag our way via 225A to CR326, and then take the old route.

I don't change that route, because it can't be beat.

Back in the early years, we tried other destinations going in all directions. For lack of a more accurate descriptor, they all sucked big-time. Going to Daytona via SR40 is a nightmare (too much traffic). Going to Homasassa is a non-scenic rather-ugly drive, and once there, same problem with where do you go and where do you eat.

South of Ocala has developed into contiguous urban sprawl, no good routes that are 100% "back-road". The year that we attempted to circle down through Belleview and around Lake Weir we only had 40 cars, and it was still impossible to hang together, nothing but shrub to see, and nowhere neat to go.

Cedar Key simply "works", so I gave up doing messy, frustrating, impossible to stay-together routes/destinations, and hung my hat on Cedar Key via 326, which is arguably one of the prettiest and least-travelled roads in central FL.

Thank's Rick. I'm always at work when ya'll come by (right down from the 40 entrance ramp) and watch the parade go by. Stood out there until 10:30 watching semi's go by. I figured something changed.
