Oddly enough, I have not found any shows on the Northside. There is one on the Southside but it's way to far. You would think that Mustangs Unlimited would put something togehter every year, but they don't seem to. If they do, I miss it. There is a cruise in Macon every year--Magnolia Trail I think they call it that I hear is pretty good.
I'm not even aware of a Mustang club in Atlanta--I need to get out more I guess.
I'm going to try to make the Huntsville shindig although my car ain't exactly show material--may drive the kid over as an excuse to go look at rockets. Any of your members have backstage passes to the rocket stuff?
Just looked at Coppertone, youv'e got your work cut out for you. Where'd in Atlanta did you find it?
I called on a 65 gold convertible about 6 months ago and this very nice older gentleman said that he had jsut sold it for $5,000. He said that while he was finaliizing the deal, another guy offered him $10K and another $12K but he sold it to the first guy for $5K since he was a man of his word. Sounds like somebody got a hell of a deal.
Don't feel bad about your car not being show material. I'll probably be taking my convertible down and it's got rust spots showing and it's missing s few decals. I had mine in the Chattanooga show last year. Hey the engine looks good I'll get to the rest some time. That is if I can bring myself to quit driving it and enjoying it.

I don't remember the area, but it belonged to a dentist's wife. It was her "tennis car" for the last 20 years. I got a whole folder full of receipts which totalled up to more than my purchase price. The car was drivable when I bought it, but a rod cap came loose, so I decided the time had come to redo it.
I'm filling the little dings now, and epoxy primer is not far off. I hope to have it drivable by the August Chattanooga show.
