Grovetown MCA Car Show Results

The NE Georgia Mustang Club had 3 cars brave the weather to attend the MCA National Car Show in Grovetown, GA, this past weekend. There was rain, heavy at times, on the drive down to the show and at the show on Friday. However the weather was great on both Saturday and Sunday. All three cars took gold awards in their respective classes, Ken Shoufler and Rick and Cher Hayslip in Occasionally Driven plus Suzanne and Frankie Newsom winning in President’s Choice. This was Suzanne and Frankie’s first National show, so congratulations guys.

This was also a big and well deserved win for Ken as he earned his nineteenth and twentieth points on his 2004 Mach1. Because of reaching twenty points he has earned his grill medallion which will be awarded at his next National show.

Congratulations Ken, this is the first grill medallion earned by a NE Georgia Mustang Club member in a number of years!

02/24 – NE Georgia Mustang Club Judging Clinic – Prepping Your Mustang for MCA & Other Judged Shows

At the January meeting our resident MCA National Gold Card Judge, Steve Harrison, offered to conduct a workshop about preparing your car to be judged at a MCA National Show.

The NE Georgia Mustang Club is pleased to announce that a “Going for the Gold” Judging Clinic will take place on February 24th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

Steve will discuss general judging guidelines such as the new 2018 scoring process for Occasional Drivers and Daily Drivers; how judges score your car; judging professionalism and the different levels of judges that make up the judging team.  Steve, along with Rick Schmidt and Keith Corkern will describe the tools and techniques that they use on their own prize-winning cars and will, if requested, informally judge your show car to give you an idea of what areas of your car may need attention.

Whether you are thinking about attending your first MCA National Mustang show and are wondering how to achieve a top score at a judged show; this clinic is for you.

The clinic will take place at Steve and Jan Harrison’s home at 4211 Lantern Hill Drive, Dacula, GA 30019 on February 24th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

If you’re interested, we’d like to have an approximate head count so please send an e-mail to Steve at and let him know you are planning on attending and please bring your car show chairs.
