July is now upon us and it is time to think about all the great things that we enjoy thanks to the hard work and commitment of all of our armed forces personnel past and present. They sacrifice all so we can do what we do everyday. Celebrate the founding of our country and be safe.
It seems that the time is moving along once again way to fast. It doesn’t seem like many events have happened and we are already in July! For me one of the biggest events I went to was the Barrett-Jackson event at the Mohegan Sun. Clem and I went to the Concours D’Elegance show on June 18th and there were some really great examples of automotive history to be seen. Unfortunately there were no Mustangs at this event. I also went on June 24th and got to test drive a 2018 Ecoboost Mustang Convertible. While it had impressive power for a four cylinder car but still no match for a V8 powered car. The ultimate fun of the day with out a doubt was the ride along in a Shelby GT350. This car is very quick and handles extremely well but the ride seemed to be over before it started. I wish the track was a little bit longer to really get a good feel for the car.
There were a few Mustangs that were auctioned off at the Sun that weekend ranging in year from1965 and up. Lots of great automotive items from tractors, motorcycles, movie cars, cars and truck of all kinds’ originals to customs and rare pieces were being auctioned. All in all this is an event you should go to just to see the vehicles that are out there.
It is also that time for you to elect officers. Yes it has been two years already and nominations for officers will be held at the August cruise night. Remember that to be an officer you have to have attended at least six of the last twelve events to be eligible. The next event will be July 15th at “The Center of Montville”.
See you at the next show,
