Here's a short video of the cruise:
On a surprisingly cold morning on Saturday, April 22, 2017, a total of 20 cars from the Mustang Owners Club of Austin (MOCA) cruised together to Fredericksburg. It was a rather eventful cruise compared to our other cruises. A member nearly found himself on the wrong side of the law and another member was rear-ended by another vehicle. We're glad to report that it was a minor incident and that everyone made it safely to Fredericksburg. We would like to thank everyone for taking time out of their schedules to join us on this cruise and for making it a success. Credit has to go to our events planner and her husband for leading the cruise. We hope it was fun for everyone!
