That (50 Years of Mustangs) is the theme for next years Milwaukee NNL in April. Be there as this past April we had 900+ models on the tables. That's a LOTTA eye candy.

Trust me, it IS. Last year I cancelled a trip to Buffalo because it was the same weekend as the Milwaukee NNL. This is in your backyard compared to the locations of other NNL's.

I seriously would consider making the trip, I like Wisconsin. But I've only been to Milwaukee only once though.

Actually, the Milwaukee NNL is in Waukesha which is just west of Milwaukee. If you like model cars, it will be well worth your effort to see this show this coming April. The "other mag" always covers this show and also has it in their Contest Annual issue as well. One of the members of the AMG (host) club also shoots photos and submits them to Model Cars Magazine for coverage as well.

I Love Mustangs! They're the ultimate Car. Mustangs have been everything, an economical car, a luxury car, a sport car and a muscle car. Coupe, convertible or fastback. Sprints, GTs, Mach Is, Bosses, Shelbys, Cobras, Saleens, Roushes, Steedas. I'm getting all giddy now!

My favorite is the Fox 5.0. I've had several. Still own two '91 Foxes, a 5.0 coupe and a GT.

I'm still not sure which Mustang model kit(s) I'll build to take around to all the 2014 shows with "50 years of the Mustang" as their theme.

We may have a couple of Canadian builders next year at the Milwaukee NNL just like this year and also in 2010. That's a 13 hour trip one way. How 'bout you? Hope to see you there.

I like Mustangs.....

Born same year the Mustang came out.

Our family car when I was a kid was a 67 Mustang coupe. My Pop also had a 99 coupe which my nephew drives now and my Pop currently owns a 98 GT Vert.

I've owned 5 so far, still own 2 and I drive one everyday.

I belong to the MCA.

Been to the 30th, 35th,40th,45th Annv shows and I'm going to the 50th in Charlotte, NC. next year.

Favorite car movie is "Gone in 60 Seconds"...1974 version!

I like Charlotte,N.C., however it did cost me a LOT of moolah when I went there. But the results were priceless!

I had a "pony car" in '91 and one was enough.

Cool Harry....I've owned a few Fox body Mustangs, now this might turn off a lot of Mustangers. But, I currently own a black and gold '77 Cobra II, :o

Love to see pics of that II. I had a 91 LX hatch for about 10 years. It was calypso and she was totally stock. Bought from a couple getting a divorce. . .he wasn't too happy with the great deal I got! Did all the bolt one and had her running 12's. Car sounded awesome!

I am currently on the hunt for a 1:1 95-97 low mileage Cobra Convertible......I love Mustangs myself!

As far as the NNL in April, I am planning on having my 1/16 Eleanor Convertible build done for it. It will be one of a kind. ^_^
