For those of you that thought about going to the Pensacola show last weekend and didn't you missed a great show. The weather was great and there were Mustangs everywhere. I took a bunch of pics but they are all huge and I don't have time right this second to edit them down.

I think there were three Bullitt's entered in the show, two DHG and one black. There was also a DHG Bullitt in the for sale area but I didn't see anyone around it to talk to.

The only Bullitt owner I talked to was Jim5081 who tracked me down when he saw me and my girl friend drive up in my Bullitt. Jim was there last year and has made numerous changes to his car. It is fun walking around it and trying to pick out everything he has done. I think I did pretty good picking out the things he had done since last year. I didn't get a picture of your car this year Jim but here is one of the pics I took last year (notice you still had the Bullitt wheels).

One of the local Ford dealers had a brand new Shelby GT there (not the GT500). According to the window stickers the car starts out as a Mustang GT with a MSRP of ~$30,000. Add ~$9,500 for the Shelby package and then $10,000 for limited availability and you have a $50,000 Mustang. I am pretty sure we have talked about dealer markups before so I will resist the urge to go there again.

All in all it was a great show that I would recommend to all of you next year.

It was definitely a great show! I don't know the total count of cars there, but there were plenty to drool over, and even some nice non-Mustangs as well. There was a black Cyclone there that in particular caught my eye. I must've gone back to it three times. Beautiful car. And not only were the cars nice, but everyone I spoke with was friendly and outgoing, most of them with a story to tell. Not a surly one in the bunch.

The Bullitts in attendance did really well, in the awards department, but I'll let Jim brag on us when he gets the chance. This was the first time I've had the chance to meet him, although I've seen his car there before. Super nice guy, and a nice car as well. Tastefully modified, and I really like the way that supercharger looks in there. I also spoke to the young man selling the Bullitt for a bit; tried to convince him of the error of his ways, but he seemed to think a Cobra was in his future. Ah, youth! He didn't know his number offhand, and said that the sticker had come off the shock tower. He knew there was another under the rear seat, but I doubt he wanted to disassemble his car just for the sake of my curiousity. :)

Excellent weather (even got a sunburn), great folks, nice cars. Really a good weekend.
