With Port Aransas/Mustang Island and the gulf coast of Texas pretty messed up after Hurricane "Harvey," I do believe that this year's MustangFest will be cancelled. Of course "Island Tom" hasn't put up anything regarding this as of yet, however I think the time may have opened up.

Anyone else thinking of attending this rather large gathering of Mustangs at "Ass-Monkey Garage?"

Take a look at the web page: TMI | Texas Mustang Invasion and let the discussion begin!


Saturday, October 7 at 7 AM - 4 PM

Texas Mustang Invasion looks interesting, but I'm not going. I'm not a fan of Ass Monkey, and I'm just not willing to give them money, even by association. I'm sure that's not what the organizers expect, but it's just a personal feeling. I'm sure I'll see plenty of photos from the event online.

I may go, depending ... Not a fan of richard rawlings either, but the sure number of interesting Mustangs and I have friends coming in from as far north as Iowa for the event. Something to see, since I missed the Waco meet at LMR.

I'm in the same boat he opened up a place here and got to meet him, not a fan for more than he's just an ass. His neighbor is tied to him with his business (the other beer company) and even though he was opening up a new store where we own the market share he wouldn't even sit down to talk with us and let the competition have it all. Which he is paying the price for it now and still won't change how he's doing business figure he may make it a year at this pace.

C'mon down to Texas where we have 1600 Mustangs registered for "Texas Mustang Invasion" on the 7th of October. ;)
I think I will bring my brother to this, he is flying in that weekend, will have to see, son has a game that day as well so not sure. The car will still have the damage from the accident so won't be registering it.

Going to try really hard to come to this. Miss my Mom's old Fox Body Cobra. IMO the best body design of them all, which is funny since my wife absolutely hates the Fox Bodies.

and Squid, she looks good.

My wife loves the 1st gens and the new edge Mustangs (99-04). My wife puts up with my Fox habit, has threatened to start driving my 4cyl '90 coupe daily, but it's not got all the bells and whistles her Focus has, so he's safe for a while.

I'm hoping to see a good variety of Mustangs there, not just the last generation.

Totally going and it seems spur of the moment to say the least. I've had this thing for not even a week. My pops had an '89 convertible 5.0 that I wish he still had. Hope to see a good selection of foxbodies there.

Asked the head=dude=in=charge this morning:
Show is from 7-4 and we start parking at 6AM.

You know how those "show people" are ... the earlier you arrive the "better" your spot.
Our group hasn't set down any plans as yet, but I imagine we're going to roll early.

*** FINAL POST about preregistration - Online registration closes 9/30! ***

Preregister at www.texasmustanginvasion.com to save $5 from day of entry on 10/07, see you all soon!

Thank you,
Ted Pippin

True, we do have a bunch of events here year round. Any given weekend you can choose an event to go to, since there are multiple choices. I have to choose from 2 cars, my Ecoboost Mustang or my 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe.

Can't bring my Fox body, It isn't a Mustang!
