April Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

Well, “Spring has Sprung” as the saying goes and are car shows and cruise-ins ever in abundance!! These past few weeks various members have participated or attended events ranging from Cars & Coffee; Lebanon Outlet Mall Cruise In; Cruising For A Cure; Arts In the Park – “Jammin at the Crossroads;” to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway On Track Experience – I have visited the Gateway Classics showroom and looking forward to visiting the Streetside Classics showroom, both of these showrooms in Lavergne, TN this coming week.

More recently, this past Sunday April 17, MCMC participated in celebrating National Mustang Day. Over 60 Club members and 30+ member cars gathered in Brentwood for a leisurely (somewhat in question by some when we went through Nolensville!) drive through the TN countryside. Led by Gabe and Kenneth, the caravan successfully navigated many red lights and turns and arrived as “one” in Bell Buckle at 3:40 – in time to sit down and order some great vittles. Must say the portions at the Bell Buckle Café were quite generous and from the comments, quite tasty!! Many thanks to the Bell Buckle Cafe for working with us and accommodating over 60 hungry Mustanger’s!! I invite all Club members to take a look at our facebook page for some interesting photos of today’s National Mustang Day event.

I encourage all Club members to post photos of all events you attend on our facebook page for all to enjoy!!

This coming Thursday, April 21 is our monthly club meeting. This month our special guest is Mike Fuller of Fuller Insurance Agency. Mike is and has been an independent insurance agent for the past 25 years. One of his lines is Hagerty Insurance. I have asked Mike to present to us information around valuation of classic cars, the differences between “classic and standard” insurance policies as well as coverage and liability when multiple insurance companies are involved. Mike is a car buff himself - he is a member of the Tennessee Pontiac Car Club and owns a ’73 Firebird as well as a ’72 GP. I believe all will find this discussion of interest.

For next month’s club meeting, May 19, I have asked Trisha Murphy, Assistant Director of Annual Giving, MTSU to be in attendance. As presented to the club in our February meeting, we are awarding an additional $5,000 to MTSU to fund our Music City Mustang Club scholarship fund that evening. Trisha will share with us how our funds have been used to date. I trust all who will be able to make both of these upcoming meetings.

New members welcome! – Since assuming the role of Membership Chair from Ray, these are new members to our Club – please extend a warm welcome to all when you meet.

At this printing, our active Club members number a total of 70! Invitations: Over the past couple of weeks, I have received invitations for the Club to participate in some events – these events will also be posted on our calendar, but for now FYI.

(1) The Franklin Noon Rotary Club, sponsors of the Franklin Rodeo and the Franklin Rodeo Parade would like to invite any and all members of the Music City Mustang Club to participate in the Rodeo Parade scheduled in Franklin, Saturday, May 14th, at 12 noon. There will be many participants including floats, area bands, equestrian participants and area businesses. A line of beautiful Mustangs would make an impressive addition. There is no entry fee. Those wishing to participate either individually, or as a group only need to complete an entry form to be found at www.franklinrodeo.com/events/rodeo-parade/ . All information regarding those participating in the parade can be found at this site.

(2) This would be a hoot!! The national Corvette Museum Bash is in need of qualified driving instructors for their upcoming “bash” on April 28 – 29 in Bowling Green, KY – how about a bunch of “pony guys/gals” showing the “bowties” how to drive – maybe Tim and Tina Thompson could serve both sides. If interested and qualified, email matt@motorsportspark.org - you get free track time if you are chosen.

(3) April 23 & 24th, classic cars needed to participate in the South Pittsburgh TN – National Cornbread Festival – for more information, go to www.nationalcornbread.com.
