Or just a Ford swinger meet in general. Only rule is that you have to have a set of those trailer nutz hanging from your rear view mirror.

Mook, you could get good money for the Cobra. I had a buddy with a cvt that Carmax offered almost $22K for. Do that and buy a 5.0 like all the cool kids. HAHA







* disclaimer: It is a expression. I am not a cool kid.

I hear ya man. I always liked the Cobra but was not huge on the new edge body cars.


And if you found a used one the difference would be about $4-6K. That is a small loan for an awesome car! haha

CMC has weekly gatherings, lots of cruise nights attended weekly, impromptu cruises all over the place, track days, car shows, charity events,season opener event (huge), season closer event, banquet with member voting and much more.

TCG better step up it's game! haha

I enjoy both sites. But CMC is VERY social and has a lot going on. It gets goofy online from time to time. But so does TCG. haha

I think CMC has a few more years on us dont they? Serious question, not making excuses for our lack of "in the real world interaction"

We've got a ton planned this year and something pretty big coming in another month or so.

In all honesty, its so much easier to get things going with a one make / one model site.

I am sure it is older. I started over there in 2005 when another local site had conflict with an admin and owner. Site disappeared. haha So a group of us migrated over there and took over. Been a steam roller ever since.

They have tried over the years to make sure to grow, do more and improve every year. With good success. It is not uncommon to have 20-30 people show up for a weekly event on Wednesday night. That is during the winter. In the summer there is 40-50 people that show up to cruise night meet-ups. Hell I can throw out an idea to meet up on any given day and I could get 10-15 people out. Like I said, very social.

If you want to get some ideas for TCG, and get involved with cmc more, they are going to have a breakfast to get ideas and discuss event ideas for the year. Might help you get some ideas or direction for over here.

And as far as a 'one make, one model' site I am not sure. Plenty of non-Ford owners over there too. The common interest is cars. Could it help to have a Mustang only site? Sure. There are positives for that. But as a site that promotes any car you have a much larger base to pull from. Does it turn some people away and make it harder to do events because the event may be driven towards a specific car or manufacturer? Sure. But I think the biggest thing you should concentrate on is the "social" part of the site. If no one wants to go to anything you will not be able to keep people together on the site. Site traffic after events is way higher than any average day. Get people to events and you should be set. At least that is my opinion on things. hahahaha

Not easy. Don't get me wrong. But it can be done.

Oh Im not saying it cant be done. And we generally have a pretty good turnout to most of the meets we plan (Lukes, weekday meets, track days, etc) but I KNOW we can be doing a much better job...and we've already been having meetings to discuss that.

Gonna be a good year I think.

Gotta make sure you have good people helping you out. Event planning, set up, etc. CMC has a good group of people who do that. No one person could pull it all off.

I expect TCG will be headed in the right direction this year. :thumbup:
