Exhibit Opening Reception,
Mustangs: Six Generations of America’s Favorite Pony Car


AACA_Exhibit

On Friday May 18, MCCPA members attended the Exhibit Opening Reception for the Mustangs: Six Generations of America’s Favorite Pony Car. It is a great honor for the club to have several MCCPA Member’s Mustangs in the exhibit. All sacrificed the 2018 car show season to participate. The AACA Museum did a super job of setting up the opening night having Ford Mustang legends such as, John Clor, Gale Halderman, Art Hyde and Chuck Cantweli holding a panel talk, answering questions and signing autographs. The exhibit runs to October. If you missed this event, do not worry. MCCPA will be returning to the AACA Museum on the day of our Club Picnic, June 30!

Cruisin' Ocean City


Cruisin_Ocean_City

During the long weekend of May 17-20, some brave MCCPA members headed to the beach for the Cruisin' Ocean City event. This event has always been one of the signs of warm weather to come. Not so much this year, MCCPA members the Feesers report it just a wet and miserable as here. Let's hope the Sun will be here soon...But wait, it did on Saturday.

Sizzle-N-Chill

On Sunday May 13, a small group of hardy MCCPA members headed to Sizzle-N-Chill for a cruise in. Unfortunately the weather was not the best…it rained and rained. This being Mother’s Day, Ted had a rose for every female customer. So at the end to the day, we had a great lunch with friends.

Muscle_Mayhem

Mustang Day 2018


Mustang Day

On Tuesday April 17, Several MCCPA members celebrated the high holiday of National Mustang Day. There was a snow flurries, but Mustang Day must go on. We started the day with a meet up at Sizzle-N-Chill for some breakfast. We then cruised to AACA Museum for Caffeine Behind the Scenes. The Museum opened the back building for the visitors today. AACA currently does not have a lot of Mustangs on display, however that will change soon. Many of Our MCCPA members have their cars on display in the upcoming” Mustangs: Six Generations of America’s Favorite Pony Car Exhibit”. The next stop was to CJs, CJs gave tours of their remodeled warehouse and their video facility’s. The last cruise was to the Classic Auto Mall in Morgantown.

As for the weather, it was just like the day before except for it was raining, windy and forty degrees cooler. Besides that it was all good. Thanks to Mike Cole for organizing this cruise and getting us a heated train car.

Sizzle-N-Chill

On Saturday April 7, several MCCPA members met up at Sizzle-N-Chill for our first Mustang event of 2018.

A warm breakfast on a cold day is very welcomed. Two MCCPA members won gift certificates, Ron “Sparky“ Sparks and MCCPA Vice president Paul Bellis.

Bullitt Mustang in Detroit NAIAS


Bullitt+ Bullitt

On the weekend of January 20, MCCPA member Jeff Turicik and son attended the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Jeff snapped these pics of the 2019 Bullitt Mustang. The same weekend, Barrett-Jackson auctioned off the very first 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt for $300,000, I wonder if Jeff bought it?



2018 MCCPA New Year's Party


New_Years

On New Year’s Eve 2017, MCCPA members gathered to see the New Year in. The event was again held at ABC West Lanes located in Mechanicsburg on a single digit night. I am hoping the weather warms up before the first car show. MCCPA members enjoyed bowling, food, drinks and even some door prizes. A great way to start 2018!
