Presidents Report - February 2019

dlivianHi all,

The 55th Anniversary of the Mustang is fast arriving, as well as the 50th Anniversary of the Boss 302.

Every year we celebrate the Mustangs birthday with a party at the Vineyard Hotel, Vineyard and this year will be no different.

Sunday, April 7 is the date and we will be extending the Mustang trophy categories like we did for the 50th and I would like to add a Boss trophy.

To make this worthwhile I would like those with a venerable Boss Mustang to bring it out.

We will have a special parking area to group them together and hopefully get a great group photo.

With the Gateway Hotel on site offering special deals for the night I hope we get some members from the West, Central, North and South Coast, Newcastle and Canberra along to make this a great celebration.

newsletter 0219Anticipating a huge rollout, I will even talk to the venue about possibly moving the show to the rear carpark, as in recent years we have struggled for space.

The continuing popularity of the S550’s and the support of their owners at our events may see this as a good move if feasible. I’ll let you know about that but definitely mark April 7 in your calendar.

Some Australian members are making the trek to Concord, North Carolina for the opening of the Mustang Owners Museum on (naturally) April 17 and I will be one of them.

I believe there are about 10 going from NSW, and another 32 from other states.

The MOCA NSW has purchased an engraved paver to be laid during construction as well as being registered as a charter member; one of only a handful of international charter members. We will submit a full report on our return.

Many of you will be attending the MOCA Nationals over Easter and I wish all the attendees safe travels and good luck to the Concours competitors. I’m sure MOCA Victoria will put on their usual excellent event.

Until we meet again, enjoy your Mustang
