We purchased our first collector car in 2004. A 1969 mustang grande. We went to our first local car club meeting soon after. The Pony Club, traveling across country after purchasing their brand new mustangs, were at that first meeting and we got to see some sweet cars. There were people from all over the world and it was quite a gathering. At the crack of dawn the next day, we waited for everyone to arrive, lined up mostly by model year, and headed up the Pacific Coast Highway from Malibu to Solvang, CA. So many beautiful cars, many new but at least half 1964-1969. It was very exciting and fun for a first road trip. We all had lunch in Solvang and then we saw them off to their next stop up the coast. After that adventure, we were hooked and have done many road trips since!
