Thumbs Up 2019 National Mustang Day!!!

The birthday of the 1964.5 Mustang has finally arrived tomorrow (Apr 17th, '64).

I'm planning to drive my '66 to school tomorrow and give some classmates rides who've been hounding me to see the car.

Just curious what everyone else is planning to do with their Mustangs tomorrow?

Well, it’s my birthday on April 17 but I’m not really celebrating because I’m offshore for another 2 weeks. I’ll be having a celebratory drive followed by a few beers when I get home

I'll make the first service at St. Iacocca Catholic. After that the parade downtown and the party at the Governor's Mansion.

Are no VMFers attending the Mustang Owners Museum opening in Charlotte? I am here and will be inside CMS tomorrow. Would love to connect with some members. I will also be doing the parade Thursday evening. I see lots of newer Mustangs around town here but only a scattering of our classics. Where are you all?

Supposed to storm and hail tomorrow, so no Mustang for me, but I’ve been driving the heck out of it lately. Got to embrace the 6 weeks of spring before it gets so damn hot.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

Wow! I almost miss the day.! Very busy here but I definitely have to take the ragtop out today (weather permits). Probably a short ride for a beer would be all I can do, but better that than nothing.!

I'm spending mustang day driving mine 5 hours back home to San Jose! Both the '68 and '69 were built in the Milpitas plant which is just a few miles away from my house.

Driving the 18 GT this am to run some errands. Then this afternoon the 64.5 and I will be going to a 55th Mustang Anniversary party at Ace Café in Orlando.

Hope all Mustangs enjoy the day.

Drove the '64.5 to work this morning. I haven't driven her much lately due to the amount of work that took place over the winter so it was nice to stretch her legs. Prime parking right outside the office window too.

Fun fact, my car was produced July of '64, the same week that my mom was born. My mom has been gone for most of my life now, but it's a cool sentimental connection that I have with this car that they share birthdays.

HAPPY NATIONAL MUSTANG DAY April, 1964 -- I was within a few weeks of graduating HS when one of the teachers showed up with a Mustang coupe, brand spankin' new. I knew right then I just had to have one. May, 1966 -- I got it! A Tahoe Turquoise coupe, 289 4 speed. The photo is sadly the only one I have -- me in my "James Dean" pose, complete with a pack of smokes rolled up in the T-shirt sleeve. Boy do I miss that car, but since I got my '65 in 2016 I feel much better. I still have the nice hand made cushion by my grandmother that fit between the buckets for the girlfriends' derrieres. The BW ( Beautiful Wife ) suggested I toss it, but nope! Anyway, it's great to have the memories of the birth of a truly classic car. Hopefully this new snowflake generation won't stop our enjoyment. BTW -- Too rainy today and possibly the next 5 days to take my '65 out. Sad.
