Hi,

I hope its ok to add our little village to the thread. Affalterbach has approvimately 200 inhabitants and lies in the heart of the Hallertau:

We have a katholic church (after all, we are in Bavaria ;-), a pub that only opens on Sundays, a vet and a truck garage. And beside that, our area is well known as the worlds largest growing area for hop (the stuff you put into the beer :-).

What I love is the quetness around here, but if you need parts on the weekend you are lost.

Regards, Manfred

I live in the city of Saint Peters, Missouri just outside of Saint Louis. The greater St. Louis area population is around 2.8M people while here in our little part we have about 53,000 residents.

St. Peters was named in Money Magazine's Top 100 places to live in the US where we placed 60th overall. This was the second time we made the list at the same spot! We did it before back in 2008!

We are fortunate in that we have a couple of different places to buy new and used Mustang parts! The closest spot is Midwest Mustangs in St Charles and then there is the Mustang Corral across the river! Gotta love it!

For fun we head over to Fast Lane Classic Cars and drool and on Friday's we head over to JJs Restaurant to hang out with a few dozen other classic car enthusiasts!

Without question, St Peters is a great place to live!

I live in Mesa Arizona. It's part of a group of cities that have grown together and are called 'The Valley of the Sun'. Most of the time when you pass from one city into the next they only way you know it is a sign that tells ya.
Less than 1/2 mile North of us is an Indian Reservation. About the same distance South is a little shop dedicated to selling parts for old mustangs. Super nice guy runs it, I think more of a hobby than a business. It's pretty small and has mostly repo parts. If he doesn't have it he will help you find it, even if it's in a catalog that you will go buy directly from.

There are millions of people living in 'The valley of the Sun'. We have one drive in theater. Countless radio stations.

Good thread!

I live in Warrenton, Virginia. It's about 50 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. Warrenton is considered to be "Horse Country" (live horses, not Mustangs) and a lot of agriculture. Very nice small town feel, but no movie theater (went out of business). We did get a Wal Mart several years ago, but there was a big protest against it. It's a great location to live, you can see the Blue Ridge Mountains, only about a 30 minute drive away. The Nation's Capital is less than hour away (non-rush hour). You can be at the beach on the Atlantic Ocean in about 3 1/2 hours. Plenty of fresh water lakes. I enjoy going to Lake Anna with my power boat, only about 45 minute drive. A lot of Civil War History in the area too; Manassas Battlefield is only about 25 minutes away. Anyway, you can find about any kind of store you need within a 5 to 30 minute drive, except for a good Mustang parts place!

Born in Bendigo 45 years ago and lived here ever since.
Bendigo is a city of around 100,000 people in the middle of the southernmost mainland state of Victoria. It began life as a result of the 1851 goldrush and was one of the richest goldfields in Australia (the worlds largest natural gold nugget was found about 30 miles away in a nearby town called Dunolly).
Tourist attractions are:
Central Deborah Goldmine, a 1.5 kilometer deep mine that does guided tours of it's open upper levels.
Bendigo Tramways - trams were regular transport between 1890 and 1972, but when the trams were discontinued one of the routes was kept open for tourism and the city still has trams running the lines from 90 years ago.
Golden Dragon Museum - a museum dedicated to the Chinese history in Bendigo from the gold rush days and houses the worlds longest Imperial Dragon Sun Loong. The city has an Easter carnival every year in which Sun Loong makes and appearance in the Easter Procession carried by a multitude of volunteers.
We have one movie theater, a couple of local radio stations, and a general temperature range from around -2°C (28°F) on a coldest winter night to 43°C (110°F) on a hottest summer day.
It's a great place to live, though maybe just a little boring at times.

My town here in Wyoming has: 7,000 fantastic people, 20,000 cattle, 5,000 horses, 1 million Antelope, and 500 hungry Mountain Lions......(I hope they stick to the Antelope) Our community depends on Coal, Oil, and ranching....best place on earth! Now winters are tough though as it can go down to -40 below....summers rarely hit 95.

I live in Monument, Colorado, which is just north of Colorado Springs (about 10-15 minutes at highway speed). I'm close to the USAF Academy, my town has probably around 7,000 people and two 71-73 Mustangs that I know of. My aunt and uncle, who live just north of me, have three horses, so the BB Mustangs are outnumbered by just them! Monument has grown up quite a bit, but in 20 minutes I can be up in the Rocky Mountains in the middle of nowhere. 30 minutes to the east are the plains, in the middle of nowhere. I like it here.
