  1. 1. May 2009 Visit us online at: www.lubbockmustangclub.com The Lubbock Mustang Club is Proud to be an MCA Regional Club! Hello Everyone, CAR OF THE MONTH–May 2009 We had a great time at the Buddy Holly center for the GAPD. There was a great turnout of members, GAPD travelers and even the public. There were some many members involved in the event that I can’t list them all. However, I do want to thank Sylvie and Darin Putman and Jeff Krueger for making most of the arrangements for city council and Gary and Traci Summers bought this 45th Anniversary 2009 Mustang from Gene Messer Ford. museum activities.

  2. 2. Notes from Q-man I don’t know about anybody else, but Kay and I have been blowin’ and goin’ this whole month. With us preparing for Birmingham and planning to drive the ’74 and not getting it ready, I decided to take the ’67 Fastback, and a big thanks to Charlie for prepping it for the trip. Doug and Teresa Putman and Kay and I first joined the group ‘Mustangs Across America’ (there were about 210 Mustangs) in Amarillo on Monday, April 13 driving to Mustang, OK, where we had a BBQ meal at Wild Horse Park, and spent the night in OKC. The number of Mustangs increased at each stop. Tuesday we headed to Dallas for lunch and on to Bossier City, LA for the night another meal and party furnished by the local Mustang Club. Wednesday, we drove on to Birmingham with approximately 625 Mustangs gathering at a Mall for the final point together before we headed to the motel. Thursday we drove out to Barber Motorsport Park to register for the Show. This is a great setting for Mustangs on display. We joined up with several other drivers with the Great American Pony Drive club. Some of the faces were familiar from our Pony Drive in September 2006 to California and the 40th Anniversary Drive back in 2004, when they came through Lubbock for the first time. We were able to park as a group ‘Great American Pony Drive’. We spent time looking, taking pictures of Mustangs, and visiting with several Mustang Owners from all over, France, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Great Britton, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico and several States here at home. For Kay and I it is our third big Mustang Anniversary Event, Charlotte, NC-1999, Nashville, TN-2004 and now Birmingham, AL. It is an experience and we are already looking forward to the 50th Anniversary in 2014 wherever it will be. There is more but I’ll wait until the next newsletter to add to this ‘Mustangs on the Road Again’ saga. Do take note of the GAPD and Anniversary Party article below. I do want you to take notice of all the new members because of the effort put forth to advertise and prepare for the GAPD. Thanks to Laura for the opportunity to display our Mustangs and share and also for the chance to see the movie ‘Fast and Furious’. There are many ways for you to participate and have fun with the LUBBOCK MUSTNG CLUB. If you miss it, it’s not my fault. I just try to tell you about it, but you must put it on your calendar and plan to join us.

THE GREAT AMERICAN PONY DRIVE 2009 – 45TH ANNIVERSARY Lubbock Mustang Club welcomed The GAPD 45th Anniversary Drive to Lubbock on Tuesday, April 28. The gathering point fir the GAPD Drivers was at the Wal-Mart on South Loop 289. They were escorted to the Buddy Holly Center in the Depot District where several members of the Lubbock Mustang Club waited for their arrival. Our club president, John Robison used the gathering of the Mustangs as a backdrop for the 6:00 PM Weather report for KCBD News. We mingled for a while and then at 6:30 PM Mayor Tom Martin welcomed the Great American Pony Drive members to Lubbock, reading the Declaration from his office on Monday, April 27, 2009 declaring an Official Mustang Day recognizing the Ford Mustang as an American Icon. There was music and entertainment by the Erni Elemento Band. The band of Erni, Dan and Eddie and Roger Wolcott was joined by former member of the Cricketts, Tinker Carlisle, who played for Buddy Holly. Also in attendance, the one and only ‘Peggy Sue’ Gerron of the Buddy Holly hit ‘Peggy Sue’. We also enjoyed the company of Jerry Heasley; well know Photographer and Author of many Mustangs articles and books. All of those in attendance enjoyed a tour of the Buddy Holly Museum had a Mexican meal prepared by Josie’s and continued to socialize while the band played. David Turnbull, the organized of the Great American Pony Drive raffled off many prizes. Dennis and Kay Quattlebaum, registration #14 of the GAPD Club, drove part of the way from Birmingham, but due to a death in the family returned to Lubbock early, and Dennis rejoined the Drive in Snyder and continued on with them to Roswell on Wednesday, returning to Lubbock that evening. He and Kay will rejoin the Drive an May 9, and continue with them to Mustang, Ok and then on to Branson, MO. 6
