A nice early start to my car show season, and a nice getaway from the snow and freezing temperatures.

I was invited to the Frank Maratta Car Show and Race-o-Rama at the Big E in West Springfield Mass. Feb 28- Mar 1.

I'm one of 6 members representing the Mustang Car Club of New England.

If your in the area stop by and say hello :)

I wish I could have gone but I heard to late about this show. It's only a 30 minute drive from my house and it looked like a good time. It would have been great to meet you and see your car close up.

rpmcarter,

Thank you very much :)

The Mustang Car Club of New England has a bunch of shows around the NE area, here is the site with the show schedules http://www.mccne.com/ I'm at all of them.

you should also check out the 72' Sprint in front of my car, it won Best Ford in this show, he is at every show also, there is no detail missed on his car.

Did I see that Sprint at Ford Carlisle last summer? I used to go to a lot of the MCCNE shows back in the 90s but to be honest I stopped going because of the overwhelming number of late model cars (Fox body and newer) that were dominating the shows. I felt like the 1st generation were being disrespected. I could be wrong but that's how I and others I knew felt.

Looks good. You are brave taking the car out. The roads are still pretty crappy in R.I. and Mass.

Down in the south the first big outdoor show is at the Charlotte Speedway or Lowe's Speedway. Here is link.

There will be 10,000 vendors so you won't see it in one day I think it is April 3, 4, 5 but I will be in Cuba looking at old cars and will miss it.

They also have a fall meet.

I know that's why I trailered it there, and it started to snow Sunday, so we left the car at the Big E, and went back Monday morning to bring it back home.

But it was a great week end.

my next car vacation is the Fathers day show in Hyannis Mass. where I saw you.

Fathers day on Hyannis HMMM! sounds like a road trip. Fathers day I get to do what I want and she don't say squat. I'm making a plan.
You have to pre-register . They always fill up. Contact the Hyannis chamber of commerce It is a fun day.
