Day 12: Invercargill to Bluff
Good Friday 9th April
Host: Southern Mustang Owners Club
The morning dawned dry but with rain threatening, however the forecast for the day was excellent. Vic completed morning briefing, Wal ,was awarded an excellent Mustang cap for his organisational activities, and on time at 9.00 am the convoy rolled out on the short drive down to Bluff. Light rain fell during the journey but in only 30 mins or so we arrived at arrived Stirling Point, Bluff. Fortunately the rain then began to dissipate, and numerous pictures were taken, including the final group photo of the event.
The only two cars to complete the entire event, Wal Marshall's 69 Boss 429 and Nigel and Dianne McDonald's 66 Shelby GT350 were parked together at the signpost for a group picture. Note: One other person completed the entire distance, (riding as guest in a mixture of cars) and that was Photographer Sandy Farrell.
Several cars then took the opportunity to park in front of the signpost, while 5 others left the group for half an hour and headed up to the top of Bluff hill for a look around.
