CJ Pony Parts has hosted Pony Trails for the last 16 years, giving Mustang owners an early season opportunity to get together and ride together to one of the biggest Ford events on the East Coast, Carlisle Ford Nationals. Last year, we nearly set a record with 139 Mustangs, and our hope is to shatter that this year!
The day usually starts at 8 a.m., when the parking lot begins to fill with Mustang after Mustang. Every year, we have a wide selection, from early 1964.5 Mustangs, all the way to the newest Mustang to hit the road. We're excited this year to see the new 2015 Mustang at its first Pony Trails event, and we expect Bill to be leading the cruise with one of the 2015 Mustangs in our fleet.
Once you arrive, the CJ's team will be on hand, ready to serve you with fresh coffee, juice and donuts, and your free Pony Trails t-shirt. We'll also have our entire warehouse of parts available for order, so you can buy your next upgrade before you hit the road!
Just before 9 a.m., expect to have a short driver's meeting, where we'll remind you of the rules of the road and give you a map for our trip. Then, as he does every year, CJ's Product Specialist and Video Host Bill Tumas will lead the cruise to Carlisle.
As always, Pony Trails 2015 is open to all. No pre-registration is required.
