They did have a great showing of the Mystics this year. Now I know why! Have you ever gotten out here Tim for any Carlisle event?
Wish I could have been there... haven’t gone yet... too far to travel.

The club had a meeting Wednesday and said the owner of the dealership offered to have 3-5 cars from our club park inside. Their inventory is so low so they didn’t mind. But yes super cool.

Likewise! You have a cool and uncommon color combo!
It is an odd color combo, for sure. It took awhile, but I really like it now. It cannot help but get noticed. When I researched the 2013 production sheet, there were only 165 Ingot silver coupes made. And only 7 with the red accent stripes and red leather stripes on the base seats. Not a common GT500, to be sure, and these S197 GT500s are not a common site, around here, at least. At this local show/fundraiser, there were 5 Scumaros sitting next to my car. Not a single one of those people walked over to investigate the Shelby. Strange people, those Camaro people.

I had this in another spot, but it really belongs here, for a small, local show. I wish a Ford dealer around here would do something similar.
Our local Ford dealer has a Mustang show for our club every year. It was Sat, but I was out of state so I didn't make it. We usually get about 40+ from the club, and it's open to any Mustang. We get some new members this way (and it's how I found the club years ago).

Went to a smaller nearby C&C this morning. One of my martial arts students was there with his dad, who drove his yellow Viper.

From the local show on Sat with a couple club members. Rain kept the numbers down so everybody got a participation award for showing up. It was a millenial show.

Before this we stopped at the VFW for a pancake breakfast, and they also had a show going. So just before we left to come here, I won 5 qts of oil as a door prize. So the oil change for the Mustang is covered.

Getting it down to " 1 of 7 " with the SVT spreadsheet, which leaves a lot to be desired is pretty cool. Had you ever considered a stat report from ( www.martiauto.com ) ?
He breaks down the MY using your VIN, will tell you how many like yours were built.
I've bought ( 3 ), when they were $ 60 + $ 7 for shipping, price is now $ 80.
Your car may be more special than you think, gives people @ car shows something to read..

That is an outstanding idea! I showed your response to the wife and I told her what a great Christmas gift that the Marti Report would make. Or, the next time she purchases a bunch of clothes, etc., I will just order it myself. Great idea about displaying the report at a car show. The web link says it pertains to Ford cars up to 2012. I wonder if I can get one for our 2013. I think I will contact them about it.
One other thing, it seems that our cars have a split like/dislike among car folks. I have noticed either people drooling all over the car at events or I have folks who make snarky comments about it being "just a Mustang" BS. Camaro owners? Chevelle owners? Who knows?????

Marti may not have updated their link, I got one for my 2011, 2014, & my 2017 F150.
Gm owners are disappointed because our cars make theirs look underwhelming.
Mopar owners just shake their heads when looking under my hood..

@real_supersnake and I went to a little show this evening. This little guy was riding around on a gas powered motorcycle with training wheels and dad helping. He showed a lot of interest in Austin’s and my Mustangs, so I took this pic of him.

You didn't toss him the keys, Tim? ;):ROFLMAO: I mean, all he has to do is twist the knob and smash the right pedal. ;)

He was tiny! It would take a few of him to drive... this scene comes to mind:
