National Mustang Day (observed) Sunday, April 15, 2018
« on: March 18, 2018, 04:26:30 PM »
Please join SAAC-MCR, TS-GLR, MCC & MOCSEM for this year’s Motor City edition of the annual National Mustang Day on Sunday, April 15, 2018. 

Back by popular demand is the traditional meet-up & photo-op in front of Ford World Headquarters. 

We have extended the meet-up time to a full hour to allow for more socializing & picture taking. 

Next, and also by popular demand & tradition, we will caravan to Mike Berardi's awesome Mustang Collection to see old & new additions to his herd! 

Per tradition, lunch will be provided at Mike's by the host clubs, free of charge. 

New for this year, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the theatrical release of the classic Mustang movie "Bullitt", will caravan to the Emagine Theater in Canton for a private screening of the movie, followed by a film festival style panel discussion about some of the behind the scenes insider info on how the original movie car was brought back out for public viewing this year.  There will be a nominal fee for the theater rental, which includes luxury recliner seating with pop & popcorn - all at a discounted deal. 

Registration deadline is April 2nd, so we can reserve the proper size theater.  You must reserve to participate, so we can also order the sufficient lunch quantities. 

Hope to see as many of you there as possible!

So how did you observe National Mustang Day?



Rain and ice at Ford World HQ.

Tour of Mike's was warm and dry.

Excellent lunch served by our friend Rich.

BULLITT on the big screen was enjoyable.

Jay Leno Garage trailer about upcoming episode featuring 2019 Bullitt Mustang.

All in all, a good day despite the cold and damp.
