Southern Mustang Club Events 2003
Round the Mountain Run 6/7/03I knew the day was going to be a little different when I had to kick over the snowman to get the car out of the drive. Running late as usual I barely had time to get out of the car before Roger said get back in we're off.
An easy pace to Riverton then Colac Bay the day was brisk & overcast with snow on the road around Monkey Island a quick photo stop for me, then to catch up with the others at Tuatapere , ten cars in all.
The drive winding thru the hills laden with snow & lying on either side of the road made exciting going with grit spread on the bad bits. We were away to Otautau Pub for lunch and very nice it was to. The cars were parked either side of main st. After judging Best Overall was Buggy's 69 scj, Best Paint Tim's 66, Best interior Doug's 70 Mach 1, the Publicans Choice went to Clints 68.
After a natter I left, to be home in time to watch the Brute Utes, what a day Thanks Vic.

Five of us left at 8.15am Sat morning ,others having left Thurs or Friday,after a well paced trip via Frankton arrived at Cromwell about 11am in glorious sunshine which just got hotter as the day went on. A vast array of cars were soon formed about 128 or thereabouts and after a long HOT day ,two Mustangs made the Top Ten, a Red 65 convertible owned by Shona Coory & a Silver blue 66 convertible owned by M Ford (sorry no photo) both from Dunedin. Others of interest a Hot Chilli Red 70 convertible from the Canterbury Mustang owners club ,a Red 65 notch,a blue 66 GT convertible, a white 67 convertible & a Black 66 notch & plenty more but I had to put the one with the sign in didnt I Vic!!
