    Sounds like it should be an exciting event, and right in my backyard! This is always a great car show, so any additional events built around this would be a plus.

    Yes, it is. I think I might just spend the whole week in Dearborn, rather than driving home and then right back a few days later.

    Just checking. I'm debating that right now...also trying to figure out what to do with Carlisle. I'm seeing if Iain wants to head down as well.

    I will, once I have more to tell. Right now we're working with SVT and some folks in marketing to hammer out the details. The BOSS 302 group had a reunion last year in conjunction with this show and we might mirror that event somewhat, with a few added "extras."

    Hey Marcie

    And you've got my attention too! I am renewing my membership and making plans to attend. Now that I live in Chicago, it makes getting to something like this alot easier. Thank you and count me in! Steve

    Marcie,
    Registration just opened up for the Mustang Memories Car Show on the MOCSEM web site (http://www.mocsem.com/default.php). Should we pre-register for the show if we plan on going to the SVT Homecoming or is our event a seperate registration from theirs?

    YEP! Go to this link http://www.mocsem.com/mustang_memories/show_prereg.php
    and register for the Mustang Memories car show, just MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE "SVT Homecoming" BOX, so they can keep all of us together.

    I will have more details in May about the other activities we will be hosting during this event, but you definitely will need to register for the car show with the above link.

    I know people will have to make travel plans soon, but coordinating all the details will take some time because so many different departments within Ford have to be involved in order to pull this off. Plan on a dinner Saturday night, that's solid, but we're not sure when we will hold the SVT garage tour and assembly line tour and if we can get some time on the test track.
