There’s just something about cruising down Ocean Boulevard, and that feeling is only enhanced when you’re rolling down the scenic Myrtle Beach strip in a Ford Mustang. The Mustang has been one of America’s most iconic sports cars since the first one rolled off the production line 54 years ago and Mustangs have gaered a following of insanely devoted enthusiasts. Whether it’s a classic cherry red 1964 convertible, a funky Mach 1 or a brand new GT, there’s just something uniquely American about the Mustang, and there’s no better time to celebrate this amazing car than during 2018 Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach!
Set for September 3-9, this year marks the 17th year that Mustang Week has roared along the Grand Strand. Each year thousands of Mustang devotees flock to Myrtle Beach to show off their candy-painted, chromed-out and souped-up rides. Even if you’re not an owner and just in town during that time, you’re sure to find your jaw dropping at some of the phenomenal Mustangs rolling up and down Ocean Boulevard and Kings Highway. But if you are an owner, simply put, you absolutely cannot miss Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach!
The entire week is filled with great meet and greet events where you can network with other Mustang fans and owners to check out their rides and show off your own. The first meet and greet event takes place on Tuesday September 4th at Broadway at the Beach from 1 PM to 6 PM. That same day, those with a craving for speed can attend the BF Goodrich Driving School at the Myrtle Beach Speedway. Attendees will receive instruction from experts from the Ford Performance Driving School to understand how to effectively accelerate, brake, drift and navigate a challenging road course in the best time possible. Sessions are offered from 10 AM to 1 PM and 2 PM to 5 PM.
On Wednesday September 5th plenty of great track events will be happening at Myrtle Beach Speedway, including a Dyno Challenge hosted by Pro-Dyno, speedway fun runs and autocross races and a buout contest sponsored by SVTPerformance.com at 6 PM. The next day the action shifts to the North Myrtle Beach Drag Strip for dyno trials and a Test-n-Tune event participants can put the pedal to the metal for their best quarter-mile time.
On Thursday and Friday, it’s all about the Mustang Week Car Show at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Guests can check out a mind-blowing assortment of classic and mode Mustangs dropped, chopped and tuned in dozens of different ways. From old-school to cutting-edge, you’ll see the full gamut of world-class Mustangs throughout the show grounds. On 3 PM Saturday September 8th awards will be given out for show winners as well as a huge raffle drawing for tons of great prizes.
