Registration is Now Open for San Antonio Mustang Club 36th Annual Charity Open Car Show
The San Antonio Mustang Club was started back in 1980, and through those years the club has prospered under some great leadership. Created upon what was one-s idea to have a club where Mustang enthusiast could get together, build friendships, comraderies, and enjoy everything associated with this lifestyle.
Having grown up in the mid 70's with a 1969 Mustang Sports roof, I quickly developed a love for Mustangs. I had a chance encounter in 1978 with Tom Kubler Johnson who would soon become the very first President. It was about a year ago, that I again ran into Tom at a tour of a car restoration facility and recognized him and his Shelby. Little did I know that I would be following in his footsteps some 36 years later.
It was the great stewardship of these past presidents and how they looked after the club that has guided it to where it is today. It is with exceptional pride to continue the same passion, dedication, and excitement.
The Club offers every member the chance to get involved and participate in all types of activities and adventures. If you have the desire to be of service, there are many ways you can contribute, whether becoming and officer of the Club, accepting a committee position or planning activities or just participating in the meetings the club is there for you!
Jump in seat, grab the wheel, shift the transmission and step on the gas for some fun and excitement on Texas roads and beyond!

Ford Mustang Number 00002 Is Up For Grabs
The second production Mustang to be given a VIN number - and the 'first' hardtop - will be going under the hammer at Mecum's Indianapolis event in May.
As far as historic Ford Mustangs go, it doesn’t get much better than this. What you’re looking at is Mustang number 00002, and the first hardtop to be serialized with a VIN number. Does that mean it’s the second Mustang ever built, and the first hardtop? Well, no, actually.
Ford didn’t build cars consecutively by VIN number - and apparently doesn’t now either. It’s been deemed impossible to determine exactly when it rolled off the production line, although it’s fair to say this particular pony is one of the first of nine million Mustangs built over the car’s 50+ year history.
No auction estimate has been given, but given what a rare opportunity this is (Mustang VIN number 00001 is holed up in the The Henry Ford Museum), you can bet it’ll go for a hefty figure. It’ll go under the hammer at Mecum’s Indianapolis event some time between 16 and 21 May.
Ford Mustang found in Mexican junkyard is from 'Bullitt,' expert confirms
Frank Bullitt couldn’t have done a better job cracking this case.
Nearly 50 years after it was last seen, a 1968 Ford Mustang found in a Mexican junkyard has been confirmed to be one of two known to have been used in the filming of the Steve McQueen movie “Bullitt.”
“I’m 100 percent sure it’s authentic,” classic Ford expert Kevin Marti told Fox News after going across the border to Mexicali to inspect the car last week.

Ford Mustang With An Interior Trimmed in Horsehide
Custom vehicle-interior shop Vilner Studio has fulfilled a rather… erm, “unusual” request from a Chinese customer, trimming the interior of the customer’s Mustang with real, genuine mustang hide.
Yes, “mustang” as-in the free-roaming, feral horse of the American west.
Vilner has called the custom Ford Mustang interior “somewhat controversial,” and we rather suspect that will prove to be an understatement. They’ve fitted black mustang leather to the seats, steering wheel, handbrake, and gear-shift lever, with real horsehair on the front-seat side bolsters. The doors, center console, and transmission tunnel are all covered in black Alcantara, meanwhile, and the ceiling features a rather striking Alcantara design, with two black cobras hand-painted in a traditional Chinese style against a red backdrop.
Now, while many will surely decry Vilner Beijing’s decision to acquiesce in executing this Chinese Ford Mustang owner’s wishes, we should bear in mind that countless vehicle interiors are trimmed with cowhide. To condemn this mustang leather interior without also condemning leather in general would be rather hypocritical.
