Mustang Memories 2019 Car Show
#1
As no-one else has yet posted the date for the 2019 Mustang Memories All Ford car show at the Ford World HQ in Dearborn, I thought I'd pull the trigger and post it.
I did get the date confirmed by the MOCSEM.
I attended this show for the first time last year and had a great day, I highly recommend going. The only downside for me was dealing with typical Michigan rough roads and crazy drivers with no respect for classic cars!! Only the weather will keep me away for this show.
Geoff.

I hear you about the idiots driving around here and the bad roads. I usually try to go to a weekly cruise in on Monday’s and both of those factors have kept me from going. Plus, look what happened to me a couple months ago. Got ran off the road and hit a utility pole. That sucked but I’m getting my car all repaired.
Anyway, I am really thinking about going this year. If it’s the day after the dream cruise it will be tough, but I sure would like to check it out and meet you and maybe some other members from the site too. So if the weather is good I will definitely plan on going.

I will definitely be there!

What about meeting for dinner at Fords Garage afterwards?

For those in the Detroit area we could also meet during the week at Woodward for a night time cruise.

I would really like to meet up with you guys.

Not sure where Fords Garage is, but that sounds good.

I would really like to meet up during the week. On the day of the cruise I park on Woodward just south of 11 mile. It’s really hard to drive that day so we just stay there. But during the week you can actually cruise around. Hopefully we have good weather! 
I did see Tnfastback last year, but was only able to say a quick hello.

I usually park on the east side of Woodward across from the cemetery just north of the Thai restaurant. Set of double lights just north of us which slows down traffic enough to get a good look at everything.

Fords Garage just on Michigan Ave just west of Southfield. Less than 2 miles from the Show and plenty of parking.

 I would think it IS the day after Woodward D/C, it was last year.
As for roads, last year I decided to take the longer way around from the bridge, I 96 to Southfield, got lost at the Michigan Ave junction, bad sign posting!! On the way home, Southfield was down to one freakin lane all the way to I 96, no road works, but the hammer lane was closed off, almost got hit at least three times. Still, probably better than taking Michigan Ave all the way.
Hope to see you and others there.

 Mark, sounds like a good idea. It would depend on if I'm on my own or with others, but I'll keep it in mind. We have lots of time to plan.
 I may be meeting the guy I bought my car from. He now lives abroad, but has always wanted to go to the Ford Museum and is hoping to make the trip.
 Let's just hope Mother Nature co-operates!

I just checked and it’s the day after the cruise.
Well Jeff, at least they have been doing a lot of road work. So maybe by then you will have a better drive.

I park on the east side as well.
Not sure what cemetery you mean, 13 mile area? I’m guessing I don’t really remember where everything is.

 A better drive on Michigan roads!!! Now that would be nice. The suspension on my Mustang is way too firm for anything other than good roads.
