Looks pretty quiet in here... does the northeast just eat up too many fragile old Mustangs? :)

I am relocating to north-central CT this summer and would be interested in connecting with any vintage Ford types there - Tolland County, more or less. Besides my family, two Great Danes and way too much household stuff, I'm bringing my 68 C-coupe, which has been delayed in the early stages of reassembly for several years - body, engine, tranny, suspension etc. are all done or acquired, just need to glue tab A into slot A a few thousand times. Some experienced help reassembling the doors would be a treat...

The Mustang will be a non-winter car, of course, but I'm also bringing a summer-only beastie, my 65 ERA 427SC. I have a few connex with fellow Cobra owners in the area but any in here are free to jump up.

It is quiet in the northeast. There are several members in CT. I can't think of most of their names now of course. I think stang32 is in Danbury. Teebone is down near the Sound I believe, though he is in the process of moving down south. I can think of 2 or 3 others but names are escaping me right now.

Still in Killingworth...

Tolland County is a hop, skip and a jump from Mustangs Unlimited in Manchester. Careful with your wallet there....

I'm here in North Central CT. And yes, Hemikiller is right about Mustangs Unlimited being too close. It's actually a double edge sword in that you can get anything you want anytime without waiting for shipping, but it's certainly a drain on the wallet!

Well, we're here. Glad to make it out of California before the 100 degree weather hit... nyah, nyah.

I'm not worried about having MU so close, as I used to live a matter of blocks from Sacramento Mustang and two smaller Mustang shops. Now, of course, I'm just a short highway jaunt from where the Cobra was built, which makes the wife nervous...

Anyone want to connect up, drop me a ping here or email through my profile.

I went down last year on Mustang night and there were about 700 cars with about 175 Mustangs. I have only gone once so far this year and there was just over 625 cars. It all depends on the days weather. I heard the last two cruises there were just over 800 cars. The field opens up at 5:00 P.M. If you get there right around 5:00 you can get something to eat and sit down and watch and listen to all the cars driving in. All of the cars come in one entrance between a whole bunch of picnic tables and bleachers. If there is a particular club being recognized that night they all park in one area otherwise vehicles are parked in the order they arrive. It is a well run and well organized cruise
It has to be with as many vehicles as there are.

Really have to check out Mark's one of these nights. I've always heard it was a good one.

If you guys ever want to do a VMF get together, a couple friends of mine run the cruise at BK on the Berlin Turnpike Saturday nites. If I know how many were going to attend I could see if they would save us some spots.

I'm in southeastern CT in the Groton/New London area. '66 coupe restoration in progress. '99 Cobra is my daily driver, except during the winter when my truck fills that role.

Ha! I'm up here in the Peoples Republic of Vermont. Right now it's February and we're all hibernating. I've heard a rumor that summer is going to be on a Saturday this year (was on a Thursday last year); much looking forward to go cruising without snow tires.

Actually I shouldn't complain - been looking at green grass all winter, save a few small snows that have melted within a week. Don't forget about the 33rd Annual R.A.V.E. Car Show at the Vermont State Fairgrounds in Rutland, July 14-15, 2012.
