First Show... 2008 Season Kicks Off!

Saturday, March 8th, at Grand Prairie Ford in Grand Prairie, TX the Mustang Club of America Board of Directors will be meeting and North Texas Mustang Club (NTMC) will be showing our cars in a dealer display from 9 AM to 3 PM. This will the first "show" of the season for the Stampede. This will be followed by the show in Palestine, TX on 3/22/08 and then our first cruise at Cracker Barrell (Lewisville, TX) on 4/12/08. Full NTMC calendar can be found at http://ntmc.org

2008 Show Season changes have been started (they are never "done"!). The plenum is en route from the talented hands of Mickey and his wife Michelle over at Unique Automotive Designs (aka Madmics). I know it hasn't been that long but the USPS seems to be taking FOREVER to get it here. :D Pictures will be posted! That is the crown jewel in the recent changes... Other pieces recently added:

  • Retention Rod, Chrome Plated 22"
  • MRT Hood Struts
  • Satin Billet Door Sill Accent Pieces
  • Radiator Extensions - Vista Blue Metallic
  • Radiator Cover - Vista Blue Metallic
  • Fuse Box Cover - Vista Blue Metallic (with added Chrome Pony)
  • MUSTANG Sill Plates Letter Inserts - reflective blue
  • Door Sill Accent Stripe Insert (1 per side)- reflective blue
  • Dark Tinted Tail Lights (20%)
  • Mirror Chrome (acrylic) accents & Blue Pony on Door Speakers
  • Mirror Chrome (acrylic) accents on door reflector bezel
  • Mirror Chrome (acrylic) accents on map lights
  • Blue tire valve covers
  • More Blue piping on dash


  • 1968 Mustang Script Emblems from sides

Even as I was working on these items I found a few more that I wanted to do and then there were others from my list that did not get done. Of course, my list is rather fluid and it changes as things are added. All changes are "bolt on" or items that can be easily removed at a later date when it is restored to original.

Oh... and I just turned over to 11K miles last weekend... She will be officially two on 3/30/08 (build date) but I will have had her two years in June. :D
