Default Silver Springs Ford show in Ocala, Florida -- January 9-10, 2010

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.

The second event is at the St. Armands Circle Park in Sarasota on November 22, 2009. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Thanks!

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.

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.

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.

It is quite the event. However, there are only a select number of vendors. Plenty of things to look at it though.

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 .

Did anyone get pics of Ricks S351? I didn't get it or Rudy and Betsy's car for some reason. Wish I had. Those are both beautiful cars!
