Catching Up On New Years Day Activities

Finally catching up on my News Year day activities. The last few years, this seems to be a recurring theme.

It was a quiet night before, so I got up at the regular time and after breakfast, I drove the Mustang to the cruise at the K mart parking lot. With the temperature at 25 degrees, I did not think there would be much of a turnout. But by 1000, the parking lot was filling up nicely. There was a lot of the "usual suspects" and it was fun to see several friends.

Either a replica or an original, this is an early Shelby race car.
 A guy showed up with a 93 Mustang LX. It had all the engine and suspension options that made it close to the same car as my 90 GT. The main difference was the trim and the LX had an automatic transmission. It was in really great condition. Mine is on the right and the LX on the left.
 There was a great turnout and a clear day that did not feel too cold.
 A rat rod truck that has been to the summer Tuesday versions of this cruise.
 This is a fairly rare 86 Mustang SVO. It has a turbo charged four cylinder engine that puts out about as much horsepower as my V8. This is a nicely restored one.

Following the cruise I went to the Brownsville Marina to watch the Polar Plunge.

 Everyone lined up getting instructions.
 Ready at the waters edge.
 Some actually stayed in the water for awhile.
