The Villages Mustang Club


There are quite a few car clubs in The Villages, Florida and The Villages Mustang Club is one of them!  There are 2 or 3 car shows a month at the town squares and it is a popular event to visit.  Many of us were “Motor Heads” back in the day and now we can be around others with the same passion!  The following from the club’s website:

“Our Mustang Club was founded in 2007 by a few residents of The Villages meeting at the local Dairy Queen to share their common fondness of Mustangs. Over the years, the Club has grown along with the population in our community and that same enthusiasm for this automobile continues.

We strive to be a club that is inclusive and brings together old and new friends to share our common interest. Each of us brings our experience and varied interests to enhance the interactions between all members.

The prevailing “vibe” of The Villages Mustang Club is to be welcoming and friendly in all our interactions with members and guests. We remember that each of us was a new member at one time and look back fondly on the positive experience we had because everyone was friendly and welcoming.

Our activities are varied and we’re always receptive to suggestions put forth by members for travel, restaurants, events, entertainment, and other ideas. We have monthly meetings with entertainment, food, games, ice cream, and a variety of fun experiences. Our goal is for every event to provide an opportunity for members to gather with old friends and make new ones.”

Got a Mustang and want to be around fellow Mustang lovers?  The Villages is the place!

Interesting! There used to be a gathering of "motorheads" in my town growing up - they'd park their cars in the parking lot, raise the lids, and all go gawk at each others engines. I wasn't a fan. Here's my one experience with a motorhead...

It was at one of these events, and my bf at the time loved to go so we went and parked my car in the lot and wandered over to see the on-display cars. I was driving a 1973 Chevy Nova 307 V8. Anyway, I just bought it and had read up on all the materials and knew what I bought.

This big dude, Joe, who happened to know the bf, asked me about the car I just bought. And I said, yes, it's great. Lots of power. It's a 1973 Nova with 307 V8. He laughed at me like I was an idiot and said, No it is NOT. They did NOT make the 1973s with 307s. I said yes it IS. He laughed at me again (you dumb girl) and said, show me - so we went over the car, I popped the lid and he looked around the engine while mumbling to himself. He came out of the engine and said, "Well, I guess this is the only one they made like that" and he wandered away.

The end.

Happy Sunday, sit back this afternoon and enjoy two great football games.  I will be rooting for San Fran because the rookie QB Brock is from my City, Gilbert Arizona.  Also, the Bengal's. Bill

Bill Salvatore - East Valley Brock is a great story! Win or lose I hope you continues his track record of being solid and an inspiration.  Agree on Bengals but being a PA boy thinking Philly!

Kat Palmiotti loved the story!  I had a 64 Chevelle, 327 375 hp with a Edelbrock high rise, Holly dual pump car, Hooker Headers, Hurst 4 on the floor and set of 456's in the rear.  That phase lasted maybe 3 or 4 year then I discovered big boat luxury cars!  Drove German Mercedes and Audi for 30 years, now it's a golf cart.  Amazing how life changes!

Dick Betts I was more partial to Chevy Camaro's when I was growing up, but I have to admit Mustangs have remained more popular than Chevy Camaro's.

By the way do you have to wear a blue shirt with the color up when going to these car shows.  🤪
