View Full Version : Silver Springs Ford show in Ocala, Florida -- January 9-10, 2010

07-26-2009, 07:29 PM
Just wanted to release the dates of upcoming Florida Saleen events as early as I can to give as much notice as possible. The events are spread out geographically to try to give everyone a chance for a local event.

The first one is the Cypress Gardens event on October 25-26, 2009 in Haines City (http://saleenforums.soec.org/showthread.php?t=6208).

The second event is at the St. Armands Circle Park in Sarasota on November 22, 2009 (http://saleenforums.soec.org/showthread.php?t=6209). It is put on by The Mustang Club of West Central Florida:

The third one -- discussed in this thread -- is a weekend long event that is usually the first weekend in January. It is the Silver Springs Car Show in Ocala. The first 1000 registrants get 2 day passes for the park for 2 people. We will be checking out the National Parts Depots' car collection then cruising out to the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, dinner Friday night, and car show Saturday and Sunday. The show usually attracts people from around the country and the park has attractions for the whole family.

If anyone knows of any other Florida events, feel free to pm me the details.

1st update is in. The Silver Springs Ford show in Ocala will be January 9-10, 2010. There will be a cruise from National Parts Depot in Ocala out to Cedar Key on Friday 1/8/2010 followed by a dinner get together, then the main show on Saturday and another show on Sunday. The show draws over 1000 cars.

The link for registration is up for the Silver Springs show. The first 1000 registrants get 2 passes for the weekend for free. See attached Event Form below. Make sure to fill it out and mail it in asap. It fills fast. It is a nice show and has attractions for the family too. There will be a cruise and dinner on Friday 1/8 and the shows on both Saturday and Sunday. Let's flood the show field with Saleens.

Pending my Trip to Iraq I will be there!

Hope to see you there. I would love to see 30 Saleens this year. I didn't get an exact count last year. I think it was around 12 cars.

09-01-2009, 11:40 PM
If you go to the NPD Silver Springs link, there is also hotel info. for anyone staying over. Can't wait.

Friendly reminder. Only the first 1000 registrants get in for free, so mail those forms! It is a great show.

Mailed mine in the second day they were available....
but for others, how do you know if you are one of the first1000!?
they send you tickets in the mail or something?

09-13-2009, 02:20 AM
They mail you a confirmation card with your registration number on it. You bring the card to the show and use it to pick up your registration packet and tickets.

09-20-2009, 12:25 AM
-I got my confirmation card today. I am #286 out of 1000 free registrants. Hurry and send them in if you haven't yet. It is going to be a great weekend.

- I have the flyers for the 11/22/09 ST. Armands Circle show for anyone interested. Just PM me a mailing address and I will send one out.

Hope to see everyone at a Florida event.

I got mine back from NPD and I'm in the 600's. I'll be driving my 02 S281 SC.

Congrats. Hope to meet everyone there.

10-09-2009, 11:51 PM
Anyone gotten their confirmation number lately?

10-26-2009, 10:14 PM
Hope to have the location squared away soon for the Friday night Saleen gathering. How many people are doing the Pony Trail? It would be great to have a convoy of Saleens make the pages of Mustang Monthly.

What is the Jax stampede? I just moved to jax.

11-02-2009, 09:09 PM
Ok, I read the flyer, but I'm not real sure what is going on. I print it out and send it in. How do I know if I am one of the first 1k? If I'm not, then how do I pay for my tickets? If we can get in free, I'm very interested. Once I get there, what do I do with my car? I'm not really sure. I've never had a car in a show before. I just want to go check it out, and look around. I'd like to make a weekend out of it, sat and sun.

I think some of the Mustang Week Staff & the owner of Grand Design Mat are going to fly down & check this out & promote our event.

11-03-2009, 12:16 AM
Smoke-you definitely didn't make the 1st 1000 cars. They were on 1014 about a month ago. I think it is $17(?) for the weekend if you aren't in the 1000. You pay the day of the show when you pick up your registration pack. I pm'd you some more info.

MW Staff- It's a great event and a good venue to promote your event.

11-22-2009, 09:52 AM
Any more details on the Friday night events?

11-25-2009, 12:55 AM
Sorry for the delay, life has been getting in the way. I still have to make the trip to Ocala to see which location is satisfactory.

12-06-2009, 01:00 AM
UPDATE: Friday nights' Saleen gathering will be at Winghouse, which is approximately 4 miles down the street from Silver Springs and will start at 5:00pm. The address is 2145 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala, FL. 34470.

12-16-2009, 11:24 AM
Who is going on the Pony Trail? How about Winghouse? Trying to get an idea of the room needed for parking. Thanks.

12-16-2009, 11:28 AM

12-16-2009, 05:38 PM

12-18-2009, 09:35 PM

This is going to be the first one I attend. Will there be a venders area or Swap meet?

I'm a swap meet junkie love looking through the swap meet stuff


01-06-2010, 10:46 PM
It is quite the event. However, there are only a select number of vendors. Plenty of things to look at it though.

Looked like a good time hope everyone stayed warm :)

01-12-2010, 09:38 AM
SO how many Saleens showed!? It was a tad too cold for us to go and we had SLeet on Sat morning that stopped us!

01-12-2010, 10:19 AM
There were 10 Saleens total and we got to park on the stage. Steve Saleen was there Saturday to sign cars and autograph posters. There were two S197s(1 speedster, 1 coupe w/clear roof), three new edge speedsters and a coupe, an SN95 Budget vert and a S351R vert, a low mileage 90 hatch and my 91 vert.

It was cold, but we kept going in the mansion for heat then looked around some more. I will post some pics as soon as the site lets me. Says there is a problem.

Next show is Feb. 20 at Waterford Lakes Center in Orlando. There are usually a few hundred Fords there. I will be posting this week. Jusst catching up with work first. Thanks.

Thanks for posting the pics Dan. Everytime I try, it tells me there is an issue and contact an administrator. Today is supposed to be the last day of the cold spell. We'll see .
