I'll be there. My car will be at home though as it is not running yet. I'll bring the Marti report along with me and a few pictures. Looking forward to the show. It's a great one every year. Hope to meet some members of this site there.

Looks like I'm not going to make it after all. I'm stuck at the bottom of the grapevine with a dead battery and bad alternator.gonna hook up the jump box and try to get back to Bakersfield , if I get the alt it be to late to get to the show in time so ill be heading home. Either in the cougar or in a tow truck.

I actually thought the show was on the weak side. There were only 1000 old cars and the rest all 85 to 2013 mustangs,,,, maybe 15 cougars all drivers if that.... Torinos there were maybe 8 no boss 302 mustangs I think we have sold most of our prize possessions to other countries. The inventory we had the last time I was at the show is half.... That was 12 years ago. Where are all the cars???

We have to remember, A 1985 Mustang is is 28 years old. Not a new car by any means. But I think a rule that to enter a car must be 10 years old or older or has had 75% of the list price in customization done in order to enter would keep it more interesting. Having never been to this show made all the cars interesting. When you see the same cars year after year they get old. I may have seen some of the Cougars at other Cougar shows I have been to. But the rest are all new cars to me. I saw a lot of hard work done to many of them. I was impressed with the number of Broncos. I did see a Boss 429 Mustang and a Boss 302 Eliminator.
