Had a great time at the show! Very sad to hear though that next year will be the last Mustang Rally unless someone decides to take over. I've made some great friends through these events. Maybe NYM can take over? I will post my pics once I upload them.

Chris, I'd hate to see this event disappear.

It was once a NYM event that was handled by dedicated people. Lately, with the loss of interest on the site, and slow communication with some of the folks who have branched off to more local clubs, something like this car show and parade could fall by the wayside. I would really hate to see that happen.

Granted, not having Watkins Glen racetrack available put a damper on some of the peoples' interest, but it's still a fun Saturday cruise, show and parade of Mustangs.

Maybe if a couple of people could work together, they might be able to keep it going? IDK

Yeah I loved the track and it's too bad that's not part of the event anymore. I think that definitely drew a lot of people and when they removed that, the interest and attendance for this event dropped. It's tempting to go to the track day though for the 6 laps. Do you know what day they close the track for NASCAR now? Not sure if an earlier day in the week would work for the track and then just make a couple more events (maybe a cruise or cruise-in, boat ride?) during the week after the track till the car show? People wanna drive their cars.
