Muscle Mustangs & Fast FordsEvents
Mustangs Take Over Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the 15th Annual Mustang Week
There are Mustang shows, and then there’s Mustang Week. When many other shows are a day, maybe two, Mustang Week has become a vacation destination for enthusiasts looking to forget about their troubles for a week. Day shows are great, don’t get us wrong, but when you have an event that basically lasts a whole week; with mini-events taking place every day, that’s hard to beat.
Case in point, the actual event didn’t start until today, but there was a pre-meet Sunday night at the Hard Rock cafe that probably featured 250-300 Mustangs. Monday night was another pre-meet, with even more Mustangs in attendance. You know you’re onto something from a promoter standpoint when that many people show up early for your event.
This isn’t Mustang Week’s Rodney Melton and Mike Clay’s first rodeo, though. This is the 15th year for the event so they have found the right mix, and the right venues to keep Mustang enthusiasts coming back year after year.
For each Mustang Week, the official start of the event is the Meet and Greet. Over the years, the Meet and Greet has overgrown its fair share of Myrtle Beach venues. For the first time in its history, Mustang Week’s Meet and Greet was held at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. This venue has plenty of parking available for scads of Mustang enthusiasts and supporters. However, as we found out today, it won’t be long until promoters will need an even larger venue. Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Meet and Greet.
