September 11, 2001 was the date of one of the most terrible tragedies ever to occur on American soil. For the 10th straight year, the Stangs of South Florida, an automotive enthusiast club and internet forum made up of over 1,000 local members who all drive and share the passion for the Ford Mustang, reunited to pay tribute to those who lost their lives that sad day, and also to commemorate our many wounded warriors. The Patriot Day Car Cruise was proudly sponsored by Steeda Autosports and is an annual fundraiser event that benefits the Wounded Warrior Project.
This year, even threatening weather could not hold back the diehard Mustang enthusiasts as the event had its largest crowd ever commemorating September 11th and supporting our wounded warriors.
The day started under the threat of bad weather, but that didn’t stop anybody as there was a procession of over 150 cars led by a special Miami-Dade Police car and also one of very our special prototype Steeda F150 trucks. The sight of all of these vehicles together in procession, all commemorating 9/11 was indeed captivating and also memorizing. The procession departed Tropical Park in Miami, and traveled to its destination at Robbie’s Marina in the Keys.
In addition to the procession, there was also a car show where special awards were given to the top vehicles on display and an ensuing commemorative party where many toasts and salutes were made to those who lost their lives that sad day and also to our many wounded warriors and first responders.
Everyone at Steeda Autosports proudly supports the Patriot Day Car Cruise and we hold in the highest esteem all of those who lost their life that day as well as all of our wounded warriors and first responders.
