Pursuit of Happiness
SVTP kicks off Mustang Week with a Happy Hour Cruise-In
As you know, SVTP is headquartered in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, so we have a bit of a home field advantage as
Mustang Week comes to town. And, if you are a loyal member of the site, you can often benefit from our local knowledge. Since many people come into town before the official events take place, SVTP kicked off the week with an unofficial welcome event at Tupelo Honey CafÃ©.
When you see this banner at Mustang Week, you know you are in for a great time. We started off the week with a cruise-in at the Tupelo Honey CafÃ©.
A staff favorite, this restaurant offers delicious Southern cuisine and offers unique beverage options like Gin & Tonic on tap. Unfortunately the weather was pretty spotty on Monday afternoon, but we had a great turnout in spite of the rain. A good time was had by all, and many of the SVTPers rode out the rain by sticking around for dinner.
Of course, before the rain hit, we headed out to the parking lot to capture the attendeesâ€™ rides, which made for a great little car show to kick off the week.
Brad and Nina Gusler drove out to the SVTP shindig in the worldâ€™s quickest EcoBoost Mustang. As Brad would say, this is doing â€œstreet car stuff,â€ and we would see this car driving to events all over Myrtle Beach, which is definitely impressive.
We arenâ€™t sure what was more popular in 2015, the Terminator or the Terminator nose. Chris Raffelo brought out his Terminated Bullitt and brought along a strong New Edge contingent with him.
Where else can you bench race with SID297 in person and enjoy some delicious Southern food?
SVTPâ€™s Fiesta ST project car made an appearance at the welcome cruise-in. Youâ€™ll be reading more about the mods on this car in the near future, but take our word for it, this car is a blast to drive.
This sharp, striped S550 offered a preview of the growing popularity of the latest Mustang. There were a lot of 2015 Mustangs running around town all week, and we enjoyed seeing them.
Your scribe has a soft spot for Fox Mustangs, and the ASC McLaren-modded Fox is one of the rarest around. Only 1,791 of these cars were converted from 1984 to 1990, and this black convertible is in great shape. SVTP Cruise-In Gallery
