Theresa and i made it home about 6pm with no problems at all. We hope everyone else did as well. Loved seeing all the gang again and meeting all the new members also. We want to thank Rhonda and Kevin for another awesome show. We love cruising in those beautiful mountains. It's like driving around in a picture post card..... ;D

For all members who wish to attend the Official Mustang Week Show on Friday you must first register your car on the Mustang Week website. Registration opens on the website on May 12th. You can register to have your car judged or just to display only. Prices for each will be available at the time of registration. You must choose one or the other if you want to park in the show field on Friday. It will sell out amazingly fast. I urge all members who plan to attend the Friday show that you need to register as early after the 12th of May as possible. There is a $5.00 parking fee for the Cruise-In on Saturday. Those who register either for Judged or Display Only will receive a 2 day parking pass and do not have to pay the $5.00 parking fee. Here is where to register...;   http://mustangweek.com/

Myrtle Beach is not just a beach. It's known as The Grand Strand. It's a entertainment, fishing, sporting and amusement destination with 60 miles of white sandy beach's from Little River to Winyah Bay. And even though I love that beach, I hardly get a chance to sink my toes in it because there's just so many fun things to do in Myrtle. Mustang Week has a lot to keep us busy for the whole week. But for those members like myself who want to make the week both a YMR/ Mustang Week Show and a personal beach vacation, here are a few ideas highlighted below of fun things to do in Myrtle Beach.

Two really nice Casino Yachts. Plenty of slot machines and five different live table games. All you can eat Buffett. It's worth it just for the ride out into the ocean on a nice boat.  Scroll down this link for a short video...https://www.bigmcasino.com/

September is the heart of golf season in Myrtle Beach. Throw the sticks in the trunk. The area is home to more than 100 golf courses....https://www.visitmyrtlebeach.com/things-to-do/golf/

Myrtle is famous for it's many dinner and non dinner shows... https://www.visitmyrtlebeach.com/things-to-do/shows-entertainment/

Dining Myrtle has more restaurants than you can shake a stick at. Last count was 246 by Tripadvisor...https://www.visitmyrtlebeach.com/restaurants/

A quote from the Official Mustang Week website;
Mustang Week is different from any other event in the country.  It's not merely a show.  If you attend all the scheduled events, you will see that Mustang Week is an “experience” that can be rivaled by no other weekend show.  Where else can you combine a beach vacation with all kinds of driving events and shows?  Only at Mustang Week!  (end quote)

Below is the Mustang Week Event Schedule for Sept. 4th-8th 2018.
Start & End times are listed for each individual event on each day.
There may be some M/W sponsor side events later. As those come about I will post them here in this thread.
As always YMR members may choose as few or as many events in which to participate in.
There will be no exclusive YMR events other than these planned for the daytime hours of Mustang Week


Mustang Week: Day 1... Tuesday (September 4, 2018)

Meet-n-Greet

We start the week with a bang on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, with the annual Meet-n-Greet at Broadway at the Beach.  The event has grown to be one of the favorite events of the week and this year we are returning to the site of the very first Mustang Week gathering! The Meet-n-Greet will take place at Broadway at the Beach, in the northern-most parking lot, closest to the US 17 Bypass and 29th Avenue intersection.  The event is open to all Ford-powered Mustangs and SVTs and is scheduled to run from 1:00pm until 6:00pm and is a fun, informal gathering to start the week off.

In 2017, over 800 Mustangs and SVT’s and nearly 2,000 people filled the lot and gave returning attendees the chance to see friends from previous years and newcomers to meet new friends.  It’s very laid back and some folks come straight off the highway from their journey to Mustang Week. You can come and go as you please and with this year’s earlier schedule you have the entire evening to get a jump on all the other exciting things The Grand Strand has to offer.  Most participants choose to get there a little early and stay the entire time and some choose to stop by for only an hour or two. The choice is yours!

If you’ve never been to Mustang Week, the Meet-n-Greet turnout will seem overwhelming, but it is only a glimpse of the week to come!  This is where you first see the major difference between Mustang Week and all other car shows and events. You will see everything from classics and pristine show cars to built drag cars and daily driven street cars.  The Meet-n-Greet is where you get a real feel for the sense of “family” that has grown over the past fourteen years. This will also be the first opportunity to purchase the yearly Mustang Week t-shirt and raffle tickets.  The Mustang Week Staff will be on site and available to answer any questions and provide updates and information about the rest of the week’s events. The Myrtle Beach Speedway manager will also be on hand to pre-register folks for Wednesday’s Speedway event.

For the eighth consecutive year Palmetto Ford of Charleston and the Mustang Week Staff have partnered together to build two 2018 Mustang Week Special Edition Mustangs!  The cars will be designed by Mustang Week Staff member Mike Clay (designer of past Mustang Week Editions) and Palmetto Ford’s Tony Barron. The 2018 Mustang Week Editions will be unveiled at the 2018 Meet-n-Greet.  You could own one of these one-of-a-kind cars for yourself! Give Tony Barron a call at Palmetto Ford (843-343-7997) to see how you can get your hands on a 2018 Mustang Week Edition!

There is no registration required and there is no cost to attend the Meet-n-Greet.  Please check the Mustang Week website forums for parking lot map and entry/exit information.

A Special Tuesday Event

As part of the BFGoodrich Track Days at Myrtle Beach Speedway, on Tuesday, September 4th, BFG will again host the Mustang Week Autocross Driving School at Myrtle Beach Speedway.  You will learn to quickly analyze a new course, apply effective trail braking techniques, understand where to go fast and where to go slow, and how to use your tires more efficiently and effectively.  A brief classroom session will be followed by a track walk and drive time in your car will be the focus with the professional driver coaches riding in your passenger seat.

Registration will be online on the Mustang Week website (www.mustangweek.com) and will be first come, first served. 

 

Mustang Week: Day 2...Wednesday, September 5, 2018

BFGoodrich Track Day at Myrtle Beach Speedway

Gateway Classic Autocross, Stifflers Speedway Fun Runs, MM&FF Dyno Challenge, and SVTPerformance.com Burnout Contest


On Wednesday, September 5, 2018, we head back to the Myrtle Beach Speedway (www.myrtlebeachspeedway.com) for a day of dyno shootouts, autocross, Speedway fun runs, and the official SVTPerformance.com burnout contest.  The event is open to all Ford-powered Mustangs and SVTs. Myrtle Beach Speedway is located just 2 miles west of the waterway bridge on US 501, towards Conway, S.C.  In 2017, Wednesday’s event brought in over 2,500 people to take part in the fun. Gates open for this amazing day at 9:00am.

In 2018, we will start Wednesday at the Myrtle Beach Speedway with the annual MM&FF Dyno Challenge, hosted by Pro-Dyno, taking place from 9:00am until 12:00pm.  Spectators at the Speedway will be able to enjoy both driving events and the Dyno Challenge action, all at one venue! Also, Pro-Dyno will have the dyno set up the Speedway the remainder of the week to meet all your tuning needs!  See the Mustang Week Forums for more info on the Dyno Challenge and how to be involved.

The Gateway Classic Mustang Autocross and the Stifflers Speedway Fun Runs will run simultaneously from 9:00am until 5:00pm.  The annual SVTPerformance.com Burnout Contest will be held promptly at 6:00pm. We have confirmed that fees to participate in this year’s event will be $25 for car and driver.  You can also come to watch all the fun from the stands for $5 per person as well. Be sure to watch the Mustang Week website (www.mustangweek.com) for more important information and details on the Speedway event. 

The Gateway Classic Mustang Autocross course is set up and run by experienced personnel, ensuring safety and fun.  Auto crossing gives the driver the opportunity to test their driving skills on a flat, coned course. The autocross will provide a low-speed chance to push your car’s handling capability while testing the driver’s skill behind the wheel. This year’s all-day schedule allows participants plenty of chances at the course. If you’ve never tried an autocross then you are in for a real treat!

The Stifflers Speedway Fun Runs are a very unique opportunity.  The MB Speedway is a NASCAR sanctioned, ˝-mile, oval track. Fun run participants get the chance to go out onto the track one car at a time and take a few laps at their own pace.  Staying inside the cones insures speeds are kept within safe limits. This is an excellent photo and video opportunity and an absolute thrill for the driver. Prior to the event, Speedway and Mustang Week Staff will position cones on the racetrack to provide a safe, but challenging line around the racetrack.         

At 6:00pm the annual SVTPerformance.com Burnout Contest takes over the Speedway!  Participants line up one at a time on the racetrack to light them up for the crowd.

Vaughn Gittin, Jr. Returns!

He’s back! World Champion Drifter, Professional Fun-Haver and Mustang Madman, Vaughn Gittin JR, returns to Mustang Week for his third year of high-energy, high-performance drifting action with his 2018 Ford Mustang RTR.  Vaughn, Founder and President of Mustang RTR, will have a few different RTR vehicles on site and, as always, is excited to hang out with fellow Mustang enthusiasts. Mustang Week attendees will also have a chance to get selected for a ride-along with Vaughn!

Mustang Week: Day 3...Thursday, September 6, 2018

UPR Test-n-Tune (North Myrtle Beach Drag Strip)


Thursday, September 6, 2018, is going to be an action-packed day!  In 2018 Mustang Week’s drag racing event, the UPR Test-n-Tune, will again be held at North Myrtle Drag Strip, located at 2003 Star Bluff Rd. Longs, SC 29568.  Track ownership learned a great deal in 2017 and has worked hard to make sure that the 2018 event goes smoothly and is a good time for all involved.

This event will take many of us Mustang owners back to our roots, where you will get the chance to bang gears on North Myrtle Beach Drag Strip’s 1/8-mile track!  Even better, the Drag Strip is less than 30 minutes drive from Myrtle Beach! The proximity to the beach will certainly draw a very large crowd! Gates will be open at 9:00am and the Test-n-Tune will run from 10:00am until 5:00pm. There is a $10 fee at the gate for general admission and a $15 fee for a tech card for those who wish to take part in the event.  The test-n-tune format allows participants to take as many runs as they would like and as time will allow. This gives the driver the opportunity to try out their car and their skill on the 1/8-mile for fun. Staging lanes will be open all morning and into the evening. It is a day filled with drag racing excitement!

ALL cars and drivers are expected to use the safety gear required by North Myrtle Beach Drag Strip (843-399-RACE).  Drivers are expected to wear closed-toed shoes while on the track, and long pants are preferred. The event is open to Ford-powered Mustangs and SVT vehicles. 

Mustang Week: Day 4...Friday, September 7, 2018

Mustang Week Car Show Presented by CJ Pony Parts (Myrtle Beach Convention Center)


Time to clean up your ride on Friday, September 7, 2018 as the 15th Annual Mustang Week Car Show, presented by CJ Pony Parts, rolls into the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, located at 2101 N Oak St, Myrtle Beach, SC 29579.  This venue offers the ultimate opportunity for the Mustang lover as Mustang Week takes over both the outside and inside of the Convention Center. Outside you will enjoy the conventional outside car show setup with sponsors surrounding the show fields.   Inside spectators and participants will enjoy Mustang Week in true trade show style! Sponsors and vendors will be out in full force. This offers participants and spectators the opportunity to talk one-on-one with industry professionals and get great deals on some of the hottest new products. 

The 2017 show brought another sell-out crowd of over 700+ cars in the judged show and just over 10,000 spectators!  The car show is open to all years of Ford-powered Mustangs and SVT vehicles. Spectators and participants will have the chance to see everything from mild to wild and from classic Ponies to late models just off the lot! 

Mustangs and SVTs will be judged on the overall cleanliness and quality of presentation. We will look at the interior of the car, the engine compartment, the body, the wheels, and tires. We will not judge convertible tops or side glass since they are optioned to be down during the judging period.  Since most people make the trip to Mustang Week in their Mustang and carry most of the cleaning gear with them, we will not judge trunks either.  People who do win at the Mustang Week Car Show take cleaning seriously and it shows. The Staff understands that you are not at home with all your “normal” cleaning products and procedures.  BUT… each year folks drive a long way to Mustang Week and always manage to get their cars REALLY clean!

In 2018 we will bring back a very popular option for the Mustang Week Car Show.  We will also offer “display only” spots for Friday’s Car Show. With this option you will be able to park inside the show field during the Car Show, but your car will not be judged.  This allows the participant to park early, to be in the middle of all the action, displaying your car in what is sure to be one of the largest Mustang and SVT’s shows to date.

For those that wish to be part of the judging, the pre-registration fee is $45.  The cost for a display-only spot will be $35. Registration for the annual Mustang Week Car Show will be by pre-register only on the Mustang Week website (www.mustangweek.com) and will open May 12, 2018.  No late entries will be accepted.  Check-in for the show will be between 8:00 am and 11:00 am. As an added special bonus, those pre-registered for both the judged portion or a display only spot, during Friday’s Car Show, will be given a two-day parking pass that will get you into Saturday’s Meet-n-Greet at no extra charge. 

Judging will run from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm.  This year we ask that all participants in the judged portion of the show please do not take your car out of the show field until the Mustang Week Staff announces that judging is completed.  It would be a shame if your car qualified for a “best of” trophy and it was not there for Staff review after initial judging was completed.

The car show awards will be presented at 3:00 pm on Saturday, September 8th. 

Participants will enter the Car Show from the Oak Street entrance to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.   There will be a $5/per car charge for spectator parking. Mustang Week Staff and volunteers will be present to help with parking. In 2018 we will again be looking for judging volunteers and if you have prior judging experience, it will be your way to become more involved with Mustang Week!

Mustang Week: Day 5...Saturday, September 8, 2018

Mustang Week Cruise-In Presented by Saleen (Myrtle Beach Convention Center)


Saturday, September 8, 2018, ends the week-long fun with the East Coast’s Largest Mustang and SVT Cruise-In!  The Mustang Week Cruise-In, presented by Saleen, takes place at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center (same venue as Friday’s Car Show) and runs from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. The sheer volume of Mustangs and SVT’s at the Cruise-In never ceases to amaze participants and spectators.  In 2017, attendance at the Mustang Week Cruise-In on Saturday included over 2,500 Mustangs and SVT’s that packed the show field and surrounding parking lots. It would take the entire afternoon to walk around and see everything. Nearly 8,000 spectators got a chance to see all the cars, sponsors, and vendors.  It goes without saying that the 2018 Cruise-In will be one of the largest gatherings of Mustangs you will see in one place at one time! It is a “can’t miss” event. There will be a $5.00 parking fee for the Cruise-In on Saturday. Those registered for Friday’s Car Show will get in with the 2-day pass they received when checking in to the show.  Once again, Mustang Week Staff and volunteers will be on hand to help with parking and answer any questions that you may have.

Also, for the 12th year in a row, Southeastern Foxbodies (SEFB) will hold their annual Fox Body Cruise on Saturday, September 8th.  Full cruise details can be found at the club’s website, SEFB.net.

At 3:00 pm the awards from Friday’s Car Show will be handed out to those lucky winners.  Gather around and cheer on those that take home the much-deserved trophies! Near the end of the afternoon we will give away the incredible raffle prizes that we will have sold tickets for all week long.  There are very few shows that give out the high caliber raffle prizes that are given away at Mustang Week.

Tips to Make The Week Better!

At this point, we would like to offer a few suggestions to help make your week more fun and comfortable.  First, take the time to read ALL information posted on www.mustangweek.com in the “Event Overview” and forums.  Answers to most all questions you can think of can be found on the website. The Mustang Week website is where the “official” information is distributed.  Social media can sometimes add an element of confusion so please refer to the website. It is important to mention here that the only thing you need to pre-register for is the judged portion of Friday’s Car Show.  The track events are paid/registered day-of the event. Spectators can enjoy Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday free of charge!

It gets hot during the day and having plenty of fluids will insure you will make it through the day without becoming dehydrated.  Always make sure to have a good supply of sunscreen as well. Sunburn can make a day in the sun very uncomfortable, not to mention a miserable night’s sleep!  It is also a good idea to bring along a set of two-way radios if you have them. Folks enjoy having those while rolling around the beach. Also, you may want to bring a chair!  Having somewhere to sit and rest can make all the difference.

We also ask that you do not enter the Friday and Saturday’s show field until the posted time.  The Mustang Week Staff will be hard at work getting sponsors and vendors set up and making the show field ready for participant cars.  As in the past, we will have volunteers on hand to help make parking go quickly once we open the show field. Please be patient as we have to park a lot of cars in a very short amount of time.

Most importantly, Mustang Week was created to be a celebration!  We want it to be a very relaxing and laid-back time, without all of the hassles of the typical car show. 

And lastly, please obey all traffic laws when coming into and leaving a Mustang Week event.  The Mustang Week Staff does not condone any inappropriate behavior on public roads and highways!  We want everyone to return to their homes safely having had the time of their lives!

The folks that run Mustang Week were really using their heads when they picked the week of Sept. 4-9th to move the Mustang Week show to. All of the attractions in the area are still open including a limited schedule at Myrtle Waves water park. The only thing that's missing are the endless long lines everywhere you go because the wild collage kids and all other schools are back in session. And most attractions drop their prices after school starts back. The weather in the first week of Sept. is the best weather of the year to visit Myrtle Beach. The air temp has dropped for the high 90s and low 100s of July to the mid 80s. But the water temp is still the same as July and August the two highest months of the year. It's the best time of the year for a beach vacation and a swim in Myrtle Beach.

Scroll down on this link below from AccuWeather for the month of September to see a calendar with the last 6 days of August and the month of September air temperatures. From Sept. 4-9th the daily average temp history is 86 daytime / 67 nightly

Our Host Hotel is the Grande Shores. The Grande Shores is the same ocean front hotel that we stayed in back when I was coordinating the Mustang Week Event. When I was first looking for a hotel back then I wanted to get a place with as many room options and price ranges as I could find for our members to chose from. That's why i selected The Grande Shores. It has condos, rooms with efficiency's/kitchenettes and standard hotel rooms with small fridge. It was a nice place then and per my visit to the property in February of this year, it's even a nicer place now. Since we last stayed there, every room in the hotel as been upgraded with new beds, carpet and new furniture. Pools and other areas have been upgraded as well. We will have our same preferred roped off parking area in the underground garage close to the elevator. Also a water hose just outside the parking area to make sure our ponies stay clean and fresh. The Grande Shores has great views and gives our members the Myrtle Beach ocean front experience at a good price.

The Grande Shores is currently rated #22 out of 207 hotels in Myrtle Beach by TripAdvisor on 3/16/2018

Good news gang, Mustang Week is back on the menu. Now that it's been moved to a little cooler temps in the 80s we're going to restart our clubs participation with the biggest Mustang event on the east coast. No more temps in the high 90s and low 100s. The summer congestion is gone and prices are more affordable for hotels and entertainment throughout the Grand Strand. The host hotel will be posted this week, dinner and other events will be posted in weeks to come. Kevin wanted a big event towards the end of the show season. With Mustang Week being moved to September, it worked out perfect for a season bookend show. Fun in the sun is back.... ;D
