    Boss Mustangs were a hit at this years Auto-X event!!


    It was sunny & hot all 3-Days. Clubs, Forums,and participants made the best of their time...talking shop & enjoying the overall experience!!




    Cars came & went at their leisure, while others hung out & watched the ongoing misc. activities!


    Shelby GT500's & SVT Terminator Mustangs were also abound!!





    Participants & Spectators...watching & learning diligently!!


    A view from behind the STAFFERS Table! It was perhaps the best seat in the house!!

    We have lots & lots of MEDIA on this one!!

    We were even "Bulging at the Seems" at times!!


    NHMS - New Hampshire Motor Speedway...made for one of the greatest host locations in New England. After Three (3) years of working together with them as well as the SSCCNH - Sports Car Club of NH, we are happy & thankful for our relationship with them!

    NH's "Magic Mile"...what a "Magnificent backdrop!!"





    Yes..."We DRIVE / RACE/ & COMPETE at SmokinStangs Laconia!!




    We even had on-site photography, model, along with kiosk based printing stations available to all! Photo's were available to take home immediately! Now that's "Efficiency to the MAX!"




    What is this? Drivers Meeting...!!


    Food (at The Looney Bin) and....a "Thumbs up" from Will!!




    2014...made a big mark, with lots of memories for all!!
    Perhaps HISTORIC in nature!!

    I'll post this one last item up...

    Just to be clear....

    ....we have been trying to encourage growth here in New England, as participation at the track. FUN FORD went away, FORD FEST went away, UPR went away....now SmokinStangs.com - Mustang Web-based Community & Forum / SmokinStangs Laconia / has officially gone away!


    WE ARE REFERRING TO:
    That we are NOT shutting down SmokinStangs. Simply not going to utilize NED - New England Dragway and/or promote them moving ahead.

    Well that is to bad that there will be no NED in smokinstangs rally in the future...When you think of a weekend full of what people enjoy there needs to be something for everyone to attract the biggest crowd possibly..Is it wrong what NED did.YES..But in order to attract people you need something for everyone..not everybody likes to sit at a car show, not everyone likes autocross,not everyone likes drag racing..but they have the choice too do what they like...I know its only been a couple of days after the event and the pain is still there,and i think its something that Smokinstangs should consider..The event is new and hopefully can only grow..There where bumps in the road with previous events and Smokinstangs got through it and moved on...We are very fortunate to be able to include a drag strip in the event.I race in NY,NJ,Maryland they all have there flaws and hiccups ... just my 2 cents

    Special Thanks....

    I just wanted to give "Special Thanks" to the NHMC - New Hampshire Mustang Club, as they were extremely helpful with regard to assisting with the final Car Show layout on-site, as well as for placing/parking incoming show vehicles. In particular Rick Lacourse, Keith Douglas, Randy Hoidahl, Joe Gould, and Jim Campbell.

    The morning of the show (06/29/14)...The NHMC was the 1st to arrive at the The Lobster Pound - Weirs Beach (the new/alt location for the 3rd Annual SSL Car Show).
    The buzz had been spread, and the car shows start time was drawing near. I was still setting up the REG & tentage area, all while you could hear the sounds of Mustangs buzzing around the area.

    The 25+ years of expertise shined through and it was apparent that the NHMC are the masters in this department.
    They placed the Class/ID - Designation Signs "swiftly & accurately," and then had cars flowing into place before we knew it.

    Thanks again!!

    I hear you Jeff...loud & clear.

    You know that's why the rally was originally designed (back in 2011 / Year 1) as such....with the "INCLUSION" of a Drag Racing Track. To support the masses, and varied interests & needed of participants.

    Right know I'm soured....plain & simple!
    - Since the events completion....I have issued over 100+ refunds for the Car Show ONLY (Due to non-attendance & location change)

    - We had a "Sponsor Based" after party scheduled right down the street at 4pm in Epping [All got ruined....due Car Show location change / 1-Hour North....with my prime sponsor unhappy]

    - Lost T-Shirts sales (of which is designed to help offset the cost of the rally)

    All boils down to lost:

    ....and confidence. Among other things.



    For me to forgive & forget....Isn't happening!
    Simply...I'd rather just not have it if I am handicapped and/or a potential hostage to an outside party.
