Saturday 31st October gave Mustangs on the Move a chance to support Breast Cancer Research by participating in the inaugural Shannons ‘Take Your Top Off’ day at the National Motor Museum.
Primarily aimed at convertibles, Shannons encouraged ‘hardtops’ to attend and support this worthwhile cause.
Importantly over $3000 was raised for Breast Cancer research.
Weather was perfect for a run up the freeway and to sit under the trees at Birdwood amongst some great vehicles.
Members took advantage of a walk through the museum. Sadly I could remember a time when most of the cars were on the road. Surely I haven’t got to THAT age already? Unfortunately I know the answer to that.
The oval had everything from a 1904 Cadillac to 2015 Mazdas and Audis, over 140 in total. Of course there were some lovely Mustangs.
A stroll down the main street offered a number of eating / coffee venues and to look at the 3 wheeled motorcycles that had stopped in town on their way to a national rally in Victor Harbor on Sunday. The ‘most unusual’ had to be the back ½ of a VW Beetle, with a motorcycle front end.
The public purchased Pink Ribbons and placed them in front of their favorite cars. The first three places highlighted the diversity of cars entered; 1928 Whippet, 1972 Cadillac El Dorado and a 1993 Ford Capri.
Thanks to those who attended and we’ll provide some feedback to Shannons & the Motor Museum to assist in planning for next year’s event.
