It’s a bittersweet day when Saturday of Mustang Week rolls around. That means a Mustang fan’s most anticipated week of the year is almost over. It is bittersweet, because after a week of Mustang fun in the sun, you might well need a vacation to recover from your vacation.
Of course, Saturday means the official activities get informal. The section of parking lot at the Myrtle Beach Mall, which plays host to the judged show, becomes open to anyone that wants to park a Ford. Spots are available on a first-come-first-served basis. That means if you couldn’t get into the big show, you still have a chance to display your ride for the big crowds that come out on Saturday.
The later start of the Cruise-In also affords many clubs to host their own gatherings elsewhere in Myrtle Beach and cruise into the mall together. The most notable among these groups in the hardcore Fox fans at the Southeastern Foxbodies club. The club’s annual cruise attracted over 140 Foxes. They weren’t alone, as the SN-95s and other groups had get-togethers as well.
As you can see, Mustang Week brings out the best in Mustang fans. It really highlights the power of a car to bring people together to enjoy life. Being around that feeling for an entire week at the beach can really give you a new perspective. We definitely hope to see you out there on the Grand Strand next year so you can enjoy hearing the sounds of rumbling Mustang exhausts on every street.
Until then check out the sights of Mustang Week 2014’s final day…
