My first personal day of this school year was put to excellent use. Along with several of my Mustang Club of St. Louis friends, on Thursday September 1, I participated in the Great American Pony Drive. The following is taken directly from their website: The Great American Pony Drive is the only MCA (Mustang Club of America) Chartered Driving Club. We were formed to promote driving events with America’s favorite Pony Car and members from all over the world. We are the only Mustang club that actively interacts with Mustang clubs all over the US, working with each to plan activities for the members of each club while we are visiting their area. The success of Pony Drives each year can be directly attributed to this participation with the other clubs and Mustang businesses. Please visit their site to learn more.
For our club, the event meant gathering at 8:00am then crossing the historic Route 66 Chain of Rocks Bridge. Click on the link to discover a bit of the rich history of this mile-long bridge.
After being closed for quite a while it is now a foot traffic only bridge, making our crossing a unique event. Our club was very fortunate to have spent an hour on the bridge enjoying conversation and Mustang photo ops.
The weather was fabulous and our club had the biggest showing. A big thanks to all those who made this day possible. It’s obvious I should take off work a bit more often. Enjoy the photos.
