9/11 Patriot Run Islamorada, FL
« on: September 13, 2015, 09:26:00 PM »
Work's been a little slow, and when I used to live in south Florida, I belonged to a Mustang club and they would do a cruise in tribute to 9/11 and to raise money for a charity, so I decided to do a road trip in the TV Eagle. I left TN Thursday morning for Florida. I stopped in St Pete Thursday night to visit a friend and drove to Coconut Creek, FL on Friday where I was staying with a friend for a couple nights. On the way, I stopped at Tampa Bay and took some pics.



I took some back roads through Arcadia and Okeechobee and saw a mural in Arcadia and stopped to take more pics.



On Saturday, I met up with the Mustang club at Tropical Park in Miami and then we drove down to Islamorada in the Keys.





I'm staying in Naples. FL tonight at my sisters and headed home tomorrow. The car is running great and averaging 22.5 mpg.

Nope.

Made it home safe and have a couple more pics to share. There were over 100 cars but hard to get them all in one pic.




I can no longer say it has less than 100k miles. It turned over in Atlanta.

Was yours the oldest car to participate?  I didn't spot any classic Mustangs in the pictures.

No, there was a mid 60's Mustang convertible, a Pantera and a 57 Chevy there, also.
