Fab Fords Forever 2012

Is anyone planning on going to Fabulous Fords Forever on April 22 at Knott's other than Tworings & Donna? We're planning on doing the usual meet up at the Starbucks on Beach Blvd....

Normally I'd be there, but unfortunately this year I had to pick between the Concord show in June and Fab Fords.... and Concord won out. Say hi to Donna and Joe for me!

Fab Fords is one of the best shows around. Anyone who can go definitely should.

Cool

I'm going to try to visit everyone there a little later in the day, my Cal Special is getting ready for some body work and paint so it won't be there ... maybe next time, on the 45th anniversary, 2013 ...

Who wants to meet for lunch tomorrow?

Joe

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

I think this was the smallest group of meet ups at Starbucks this year - just Tworings & Donna. There were other Specials at the show, but we were not parked together. Donna & I could not resist buying pink Mustang jackets at the show We had a wonderful lunch with Joe & his daughters at Knott's famous chicken dinner restaurant. Shane was also there, and Ruben stopped by later with his sons. Jon - we missed you!

We were discussing that it would be great to get a group together for the 45th anniversary next year (seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the 40th!).

Lunch was fun. It was good to see you and Donna. Hopefully my 68 can be ready for the 45th anniversary.

I was just telling them at lunch that I have to talk you into printing me some more shirts. Good to see that your eyesight hasn't gone at your age.

Ouch! Hahahaaa!

Thanks for lunch Joe! It was really great to see so many faces again.

My GT/CS was my first car, still have it 43 years later. Paid $800. Featured in the May 1998 issue of Mustang Illustrated.

Lisa,
What a beautiful car!! Love the Shelby wheels. One of the earliest of the GT/CS cars with the recessed reflectors.
