Mustang 50th Charlotte Rare Cars Display
« on: February 05, 2014, 08:05:05 pm »
Charlotte Motor Speedway
April 16 - 20th


I'm working with Ed Meyer on putting together a special display at the Mustang 50th Birthday Celebrations in Charlotte this year.  The theme of the display would be "Rare Cars" and focus on the early muscle cars of Shelby, Boss, and CobraJets and be open to restored and unrestored examples.  One of the issues at Charlotte is trying to coordinate a general area where we can keep a good group of cars together instead of being mixed up all over the show field.  Its my understanding talking with Steve Prewitt and people at the Charlotte Speedway today that the show field is set up as a first come, first serve basis of parking with no specific parking for groups of cars because the number of cars expected.  Once you are inside you can not move your car until after 5:00 each day or you can leave your car in the spot overnight. 

We are looking at putting together a large tent and reserved area outside the show field next to the main entrance called the "Fan Zone".  There is an area there already reserved for car clubs and organizations for this exact reason and would allow us a tent and easier access to come and go as needed each day.  Should make for a much better experience overall.  More details and pictures here:
http://www.mustang50thbirthdaycelebration.com/charlotte/moreprogram.html

We are looking for a minimum of at least 20 cars/owners that would be willing to commit by Monday Feb 10th.  The only cost associated will be for the tent and/or other expenses which could be about $150 per car for the week there (actual cost still TBD).  This is a paved area outside the main entrance which is unfenced but will have security each night if you want to leave your cars overnight. 

If you are interested get in touch with Ed Meyer or myself at 602 628 2522 or marcus@anghelrestorations.com

If thats outside the track close to the road you better get security to watch things at night .
had many 428 CJ and SCJ cars over the last 30 years.I currently own a 68 1/2 coupe and a 69 R code SCJ Coupe and a 70 R code SCJ Cougar Eliminator .I am looking for a 70 428 coupe if anybody knows of one for sale.

I talked to the people at the Charlotte Speedway yesterday and they confirmed there will be security there all night each night.  There is already about 35 car clubs registered for that area so there will be alot of people around.  But if anyone is worried you can always move a car back in a trailer overnight.

The good thing about being in this group is you can come & go when you want unlike being inside track AND alcohol may be involved :)

We can set up a table at this tent for cj registry headquarters with the boss registry guys since there will be people from all over & may know of cars we don't know about for updated registry...  When I went to international mustang show in MT. last summer I found 11 B9s from NW & Canada that weren't in boss registry & can sell registrys & t-shirts at table in tent.

yes you mean the black one but I have 3 cars from here going already & no big transporters in the area  BUT that gives me an idea & wonder if we would be better off hiring a transporter rig since there are  7 cars within 80 miles of me & another 120 miles from me going would we be better off going that route but then the owner still have to get there somehow :)
