    Mustangs at the mansion

    :notnice::shrug: This event had very nice cars, well at least in the one parking lot we went to, but they failed to mention the show was in more than one area, so everyone I have spoken to missed about half of the show, not to mention the gate security telling folks they had to buy a pass of 49.00 ea to attend the show, when the entire time their were free shuttles taking people in, and again I met some nice folks at the show what portion I attended but felt like it was very poorly run and we couldnt get a straight answer out of any of the Biltmore staff, we wasted almost 100.00 to attend a "FREE SHOW"

    It was great to see alot of old faces and new ones too.

    Yes, I agree that it was very very confusing to say the least. Biltmore staff and the local mustang club didn't make alot of things clear.

    I helped judge a few cars and we had to walk over a mile to get to the last car in the OTHER lot.... The wait for a shuttle was over 1/2 hour just to the other lot.

    The Biltmore is very strict about alot of things and that is what makes it hard to have this size show at there location.

    They also broke 2 records over the weekend.... Sat they had over 7,500 people at the Biltmore grounds which was the most ever! Then on Sun they had 7,700 which ended up breaking the Sat record!

    About the $49 pass to get in doesn't make any sense.... It is $55 for a day at the biltmore so I don't know where that came from.
