car show this weekend
#1
well hello everyone,

I just thought I would share my disapointment I encountered this weekend at the local carshow. Well the weather was a little questionable, but needless to say I drove my Mach 1 up to the show, this is about the only time I put 300 miles on it in a weekend, but needless to say I was the only 71-73 Mach 1 in the whole carshow. Needless to say I was a little disapointed.. Then walking throu the show looking at the other cars there I overheard a couple guys talking about the ugly blue and silver Mach 1 parked over in the other parking, which was mine.. they then proceeded to say that ford should have dropped the mustang in 1971 and never created the ugly mustang. I just smiled and walked on. This started a really good disscusion with the 2 other buddies I was there with about how its seems that the 71-73 mustangs are a love/hate relationship and you don't see them flood the car shows like the 1967-1969 camaro's. Just thought I would share what I encountered this weekend, it was a great time, just surprised I had the only 71-73 Mach 1 there.

Well I for one enjoy the fact that not many of our cars show up at events. I have seen every configuration possible on old camaro's, and older mustangs to the point I am just bored to sleep looking at them. And most do not understand that the 71-73s handle and ride far better than theirs do without spending a suitcase full of 20's

the car show I was in today, there was me and the usual 71' Fastback that shows up.
and I get the owners of the older Mustangs telling me how the 71'73 ride and handle much better.
then you get the owners of the 05-13 say how can this big monster be considered a Classic, and I turn around and say, how can something New be considered a classic??

Yup...You get some arse holes who don't know any better....I think my car gets more attention at car shows than most mustangs...It slowly shaking off there bad undesurved rep....Once and a while pulling up at the gas station ill have some one ask me..Is that a 69?..lol..And when i tell them it is a 73 they always are suprized..Like damn i was told these cars are ugly..but they are not!!...lol..And anyone who call's your pretty blue and silver car ugly definatly needs his eyes checked.

Haters gonna hate!

Dude, you have nothing to be disappointed about... unless you're talking about the unwashed masses who know just enough about Mustangs to believe the mainstream 'classic Mustang guy' shite regarding '71-'73s and the earlier models. Then yeah - be disappointed. But not too much though - it's not their fault. Like Bill Engvall says: "You can't fix stupid." rofl
