Many of you are familiar with Robert's Barricade tribute car from San Antonio. In fact Robert brought his Barri to the 2011 Gullo show. Unfortunately due to work commitments, we're not going to get to have Robert join us this year with either of his fine Saleens.
However I'm happy to let everyone know that the #1 of 3 Barricade cars built for the movie Transformers will be joining us for the Gullo show. The owner is a Houston-area resident and he's excited to bring his car out to share with us. He tells me that the #1 car is the only Mustang that was built by Saleen. The other 2 are Mustangs with Saleen body kits and V6 engines. The #1 car is the S281 Saleen Extreme package with the V8 engine.
Movie scenes involving this car are as follows.
SCENE#1: The first appearance of Barricade at the airport
SCENE#2: The warehouse chase scene involving the old Camaro
SCENE#3: The night chase scene in factory
SCENE#4: The final highway chase scene with all the vehicles together
One more reason to come out for this exciting event!
Check out this album for pics of this cool car:

Dang, just when I got excited that Robert's absence would allow my car to get some love...this happens!


Should be a good show, I hope this guy doesn't drive off and leave a chair...

Are you ready for the biggest weekend of the year for Saleens in the Houston area?

Seeing old friends and making new ones…..


Piney-woods cruising………



Amazing Gullo Private Collection Tour…..


This is our 3rd annual event and it's grown from good to great, and this year we hope that it will be the best ever!
The focal point is the Gullo Ford All-Ford Car Show where Saleens and Saleen fans have come in from all over Texas, and beyond.
Besides the terrific rides of our members, our favorite Saleen collector from Alvin is bringing some of his beautiful cars again.
And for the first time joining us will be the #1 of 3 Barricade Saleens used in the making of the Transformers movie.
Should be a really exciting show!
Here's the low-down for the weekend:


Friday Night: Meet and Greet at Gary & Betsy's house in the Woodlands. Kick back and enjoy some refreshing beverages around the pool with two of the nicest hosts you'll ever meet.
Email me back for the address, or call Gary at (281) 296-9655.

Saturday Morning: Gullo Ford Car Show presented by Northside Mustangs. Registration is from 9 to noon. Show will wrap up by 4 pm.

Sunday Afternoon: Gullo Private Collection Tour at 1pm. You will be amazed at what you see on this tour! It has to be one of the most interesting collections in existence. Beyond the cars, it's really a museum of Americana. Please bring $10/person which goes directly to support the Gullo Christmas for Children Charity.
For out-of-towners, there are many hotels in the area to choose from. Gary recommends the Holiday Inn Express in Spring as being most convenient to all of our activities. Here's a link to more info:

Saleen Friends,
I’ve asked Chlee Green of the Northside Mustangs Club to put together a cruise route and schedule for Sunday and here’s the details she’s come up with:

Mr. Tony Gullo has opened up his private car museum to us once again. This is an invitation only event for our club and the Saleen club. If you want to bring a guest you can. We are asking for a donation of $10.00 be given to help support the Christmas for Kids charity. If you've never been, just ask someone that has. It's an amazing experience and one you won't want to miss. We will meet in the parking lot of Kroger's located at 220 S loop 336 W, Conroe , TX 77304 , at 10am leaving promptly at 10:15. We will then have an hour cruise to end at Quiznos located at 6875 FM 1488 # 400, Magnolia, TX. While there, we'll have a short car meet and grab a quick bite to eat. We then plan to leave there at 1pm and cruise together to arrive at the museum by 1:30. If you do not want to participate in the morning cruise and just want to meet us at Quiznos, we plan to be there between 11:30 and 11:45.

Ok finally got my own pics uploaded and all the shots of my feet cleared out.
You'll notice that there's no pics from inside the museum, and that was at Mr. Gullo's request that none be posted on the internet.
So if you want to see his fabulous S7, and the rest of his collection, you'll just have to come next year.

Here's some pics by others:

And if you're on Facebook, here's some more.

BIG thanks to everyone that came out, especially Gary & Betsy for opening up their home for us.
At last count I think we had 19 in attendance at the show.

Joe, wish I could have made it down again :( school seems to get in the way of a lot of these things.

Looks like it was a great turnout and perfect weather! Thanks for sharing the pics, beautiful cars with even better people.
