Who would be interested in going on a "mystery cruise?" The cruise would be in NC and will have a stop that will make any Mustang enthusiast smile. This cruise will be March 19 since that is an open month for NC/SC events. Don't ask me where, that's why it is called a "mystery cruise". :smile:

Details about the event:

Starting Location: Holman/Moody of Charlotte, NC

Meet time for Charlotte: 8:00 a.m.

Where will the cruise go: From Charlotte to Claremont to NC mountains. Basically, after we see the "Mustang Garage", we will be going to the NC mountains and getting lost somewhere up there so bring your GPS just in case. :wink:

What you need to bring with you:


Lunch Money
Full Tank of gas - it's about 250 miles before dinner
Dramamine in case you have a weak stomach
Patience in case we get lost
A mechanically sound car
Two way radios turned to channel 14
Who can join us:

We'd like to keep this an all Mustang and Ford event but we will not turn anyone away who wants to be a part of the cruise. :smile:

Where will it end (About 5:00 p.m.) :

Had a great time at the cruise-in. Sounds like you all had some fun coming from Charlotte. I was questioned at work today about all the Mustangs going down 16 S out of Wilkesboro toward Taylorsville. I said yep that must have been them. Great Food Scott! You have a great business going there! As I told you we will visit more often!:biggrin:

Here are few pics from my Blackberry...

I live in CLT, and I hate that I missed this by a few days. Maybe next time. Have to check back more often.

Re: Lastly, the cost of living is low and North Carolina mountain property is fairly cheap at the moment. It certainly is a buyer's market in this day and age and anyone that has money to invest in property would be wise to do so now as the prices are low. Find a local realtor to help you find the land of your dreams in the mountains of North Carolina. Use one that has a good track record and will deliver property that meets your needs at an affordable price. mountain land (http://www.fallcreekland.com/) Mountain activities include things like skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing in the winter time.
