My Father has offered me his car to take up to Carlisle this year.
he has been sick all week and since he isn't going. its all ready registered on the show-field and all. he offered for Heather and I to take his 2012 Mustang GT/CS.
now Carlisle has been a tbird/falcon thing for me since i was kid. we either take one of my dads falcons or his tbird, then i got my tbirds and been taking them since. My tbird is nowhere near show quality, its looks ok but has major flaws in it and im sometimes embarrassed, that it's not really as nice as it used to be.
Its awesome that he offered us the car. it only has like 800 miles on it. but at the same time i would be a "mustang" guy. im so stuck here!
so what do you guys think?
give me your honest opinion,

Bring the title and we will raffle it off Big Grin

Personally, I want to see the Falcon.

OK - honest opinion...

I want to see your bird up there again. The place is flooded with Mustangs already. Gotta represent the TC, dude! Besides... yours is much less flawed than mine. I still have a big ol' dent with some primer in it on my driver's side door from that deer hit last year. So just park next to me and yours will just look that much better!

Well if he had planned on taking the falcon it would be there. i love the falcon! even thoight of a photo opt for "get well soon"
but he planned to take the stang, so he had easy access to the swap meet, lol. even tho he would be hanging out at the falcon club tent near us on the hill. ha

THAT you show, is more important than WHAT you show.

Now you'll have easier access to the swap meet too, lol.

And you wont need to pack tools!

I totally agree with 4cammer72 take your dads car, it will make him happy and you will have plenty more years to take the birds and the falcon.

My choices: 1st - Your TC.... we need to have the best showing of TCs as B said, and none of us care if your TC isnt looking its best. 2nd - Falcon.... I love Falcons (used to have a 66). 3d - Mustang. As B said, too many Mustangs there as it is.

My first choice is bring the T-Bird then the Falcon. With the Mustang you will be just another hen in the hen house.
