The 17th Annual Silver Springs Mustang and Ford Roundup will be the location for the 2011 Saleen Florida Reunion from January 7-9, 2011. The weekend will consist of a Friday morning cruise from National Parts Depot out to Cedar Key with 100+/- Fords, a tour of the 140 car NPD collection, along with a dinner get together for Saleen owners at WingHouse in Ocala. Saturday and Sunday are show days in the Silver Springs park. The first 1000 registrants get two tickets into the park along with their registration free. Last year had approximately 1400 Fords registered before the 30 degree weather hampered the turnout. Show information can be had at:

Last year was a last minute appearance.

Last year, Saleens were the feature cars and Steve showed up to do autographs.

I got mine about 1.5 weeks ago and, even though I sent it early Sept., I was number 1121. Still well worth the $20 Registration.

Come snow or idiots blowing their motors in front of me on the interstate, we'll be there again. Already made reservations. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. I hope to see all the great people we met last year.

We're in the 600's as well Bob. Kyle and I will be making the 800 trek again.

Dave, I believe Rick Schmidt of NPD arranged Steve's appearance in Bellvue the fall before, so I don't know how that's last minute. We all really appreciated him coming and he was extremely gracious. That guy signed everything. Including a cell phone!!!!

That's GREAT Bob. Can't wait to hear her purr!

Yep Greg, that was un-fricken believable. It was 26 when we woke up and there was a half inch of snow on the Saleen. IN FLORIDA!!!!!!

Where is Al Gore when you need to chew his A**!

I'll get some pics for sure. I hope to be running in the next 30 days.

Not a problem with the rims. There are worse things to have stored in your garage. Nice addition by the way. Quite the garage!

I'll be there (Saleen meet as well)! I just had my front bumper re-sprayed and a few scratches fixed...too bad it is too cold out to do much else. This is one of the huge disadvantages to no garage!! (25 degrees in FL?!?!)

I have to run up to Nebraska to pick up a 85 Gt convertible that week. I hope to be back in time to meet you guys Friday at Winghouse.

I would really like to go, but if only I could trailor my saleen. I made the mistake of driving to a Alabama show. Oh look new rock chip, ohhh Alabama roads with the train tracks crossing cause me to bottom out. It's sucks having a rare car and not wanting to drive it long distances. With my saleen being as low as it is I never know what type of roads i'll run into.

Thanks Greg. The engine and trans are in the car!

02S/Csaleen- Where are you located? I am in Orlando and drive up every year. I haven't had any issues yet, including the Pony Trail on Friday. Hope you can make it.

Who is in for 5:00pm dinner at Winghouse? I told them it would be 15 people and would like to get a tentative headcount.

Less than 1 week to go!

I know that there a few guys on here from the Orlando area...who all is driving up for the Pony Ride?

I have been asking around in my local club, but no-one has responded. Mid-Florida Mustang Club has a meeting tonight, so a few might jump in then. Anyone on here planning a caravan up (even meet a few guys from South Florida on the way up)?

I'll be on the Pony Run, then going to the Winghouse for dinner. We'll be at Winghouse later than some of the rest. 'Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone!

I'll be up there tomorrow morning. I don't think that I am going on the cruise though. Everyone in my house is sick and I don't want lindsey to overdo it before Saturdays show. I will be at Winghouse though.
