Talking Two magazine shoots in one show!!!!

I took the 6 hour trip to the NMRA World Finals in Bowling Green, KY and not only won a couple of trophies with my 'Stang, I got two magazine photo shoots!!!! 5.0 Mustang and Super Fords (finally) and Mustang Enthusiast. I am soooo darned happy. The car even dropped off the edge of the trailer and ruined the mufflers the first day, but I still am just so happy, that a little money for new mufflers is nothing.
