M1 Concourse Turns California Street Into Mustang Heaven
From a legendary road to a state of the art facility, this cars & coffee event has everything a Mustang fan could want.
Any auto enthusiast worth their salt has heard of the legendary Woodward Avenue. One of America’s most famous streets, located in Pontiac, Michigan, has essentially existed as the hottest cruise spot on earth for decades. But now, car nuts have another reason to visit this iconic area – the M1 Concourse. That immense facility houses everything from a race track to repair and restoration shops to private “car condo” garages you can own. And at the facility’s season-opening Cars & Coffee event, it was transformed into pure Mustang heaven.
Which should come as no surprise, really. Pontiac is part of the Dearborn/Detroit area, home of the Blue Oval. So naturally, there were a wide range of Mustang generations in attendance. Everything from stock, modern Shelbys to highly modified vintage rides. And where else can you see a mint 1970 Boss 302 sitting in between a twin-turbo Shelby GT500 and a brand new GT350?
We also spied some heavily modified Terminators, Fox Bodies, cream puff first-gens, and both old and new Ford GTs at the M1 Concourse. Heck, there were even some ’60s Thunderbirds and an original Taurus SHO on display for good measure. What more could any die-hard Blue Oval fan possibly want?
If all of that sounds like your idea of the perfect weekend getaway, you’re in luck. M1 Concours hosts a Cars & Coffee event the last Saturday of each month until winter strikes. While you’re there, be sure and cruise Woodward, hit the skid pad, or just enjoy the company of hundreds of other Mustang fans. And of course, soak in the culture of the place that started the cruising craze to begin with.
