9/24 – John Bleakley Mustang and Ford Car Show – Lithia Springs, GA

Scott Mossbrooks will be leading the caravan to the GRMC car show at Bleakley Ford this coming Sunday.  If you wish join us for the drive to Lithia Springs, we will meet in the parking lot next to the McDonald’s on Venture Dr in Duluth.  This location is just West of I-85 on Pleasant Hill Rd. We will then drive as a group to the event (I-85 south to I-20 west). We will leave from this parking lot at 8:00 AM sharp! Make sure you have gas as well for the drive.
Since GRMC really does a great job supporting our 3 shows, especially Maggie Valley, I want to get as many of our members to this show this Sunday.
This show is a modified MCA judged show which means make sure your car is clean. I want to get there by 9:00 AM when the show opens so if needed we have time to quick clean our cars before the judging begins.
Our goal is to make sure everyone has fun and hopefully wins an award, including the club participation award.
Please let me know if you plan to attend so I have a car count.
Email me or call me of you have questions.
