Our club was formed in the summer of 2001 and will be celebrating 10 year in 2011. We started out with about 12 members. Our desire was to simple: to enjoy our cars and those of others.
At that point, our club included beautiful Mustangs ranging in years from 1964 to 2001.
The Cortland Standard took a group picture of our rides and wrote an article about the formation of the Central New York Mustang Club. Many of our members have such a passion for cars, that we have traded our first club car for another, and another, and another. Yet some of us still have the car, or cars, that we joined the club with in 2001.
The cars in the CNY Mustang Club included just about every Mustang that you can imagine. Mustangs, GT, Shelbys, Saleens, Bosses, hard tops, fast backs, convertibles, old, new, restored, and the list goes on and on.
Since our desire was to enjoy the benefits of owning a beauty, or two, and appreciating others rides, we decided that it would be in our best interest to open up the membership to include any Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury product. After all, the affection we have for cars, isnt solely for Mustangs. So, in honor of Fords 100th Anniversary, our club is now known as the Central New York Mustang and All-Ford Club. We now have over 30 members from various areas in CNY.
Our members come from all over Cortland County and Central New York, and we hope that many other Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury enthusiasts will join us. Whether you enjoy restoring cars, showing cars, customizing cars, or simply driving cars, this is the club for you. Our current club cars include: Mustangs, Cougars, Crown Vics, Thunderbirds, F-Series Pickups, Shelbys, Cobras, Galaxies, Fairlanes, Torinos, Falcons, Cyclones, and Montereys.
Our club typically meets about once a month during the spring and summer, to plan events such as cruises and meets. We are a club dedicated to having fun with our cars and each other. We keep plans for our activities rather simple so we can enjoy the events rather than work the events.
The kick off for the beginning of car season is the annual cruise.
May 22, 2011 - The 28th Anniversary Car Cruise.
This cruise, that is open to the public, starts with a short viewing in Marathon. Then we have an escorted car cruise to Cortland. We have had hundreds of cars turn out for this event and the people of local communities come out to wave at the parade of cars passing by. Once in Cortland, we park our rides, raffle off some door prizes, and most importantly, we enjoy the beautiful scenery of cars all around us!
