    Default Pace Car in french event

    This week-end was "Les Belles Champenoises" event in Reims (for those who don't know, Champagne might help you to locate this town ).

    As this year is also the 30th anniversary of the Fox body Mustang (you all know it's Mustang 45th, but it's also our club's 25th), our president asked me to bring my Pace Car in this event to show it on our stand.

    It's the first time a Fox Mustang is exposed this way in France and i was a bit surprised by the way visitors accepted it ... here it's not common and not always accepted as a Mustang (lot of 1st gen' integrists) but finally, it had it's share of photo shootings and i had quite often the opportunity to talk about it and discover a few fox owners.

    Congratulations. That's a real nice looking Pace Car you have.

    I think the 30th anniversary will mark the beginning of Fox/Pace Car retrospective/appreciation.

    Not sure, but it may help a bit so they get the place they deserve in Mustang history.

    I have the project to create a small event around the Fox-body Mustang around Paris this year ... if i ever found the time for this
    It won't be limited to 4-eyes.
