The 47th Annual Fall Regional Shelby/Mustang and Ford Meet was a huge success. Above are photos of the show favorites for each class. Feedback from the show has been overwhelmingly positive. Participants enjoyed the venue, the extra activities on Friday and how well our club orchestrated the event. Spectator responses were also very positive.
We had 280 cars and 32 Mustang II’s at the meet. People liked the blue grass music, home made ice cream, boiled peanuts and of course the Nut Man’s roasted peanuts. The booths were a huge success as was the cruise (over 40 cars participated in the cruise), the visits to Jacky Jones collection and the Meet and Greet at Memory Lane Car Museum. It was an action packed two days. The campers loved the venue, many have made reservations for next year and the Lake Chatuge Lodge was a great host hotel as well.
The Mustang II reunion drew 32 cars from as far away as Michigan ,Illinois and Florida. The cars looked impressive as the participants and spectators entered the fairgrounds. We called the area Mustang II Alley. Doug DeLorme who worked for Ford for 30 years, displayed the only Western addition 1976 Mustang II along with his 1976 Western addition Ford F-150. Across from him, inside the fairgrounds was John Clor with the Ford Performance tent. It was an honor to have John there with the Mustang II Reunion and in addition, to have the President of the MCA Steve Prewitt, there with his Mustang II.
Friday’s events were awesome and the Meet and Greet was a great addition with more than 100 people attending. In addition, John gave everyone in attendance a Ford Performance face mask. John and Steve both spoke to the crowd. It was very impressive seeing some of the Mustang II’s parked in front of Memory Lane Car Museum as everyone entered the door. Jerry Smith was a great host and spent time talking about his cars as well.
Jacky Jones spent the entire day on Friday talking to people that came to see his car collection. There were two couples that were hearing impaired at the event and we were fortunate to have an interpreter at both Jacky Jones and Memory lane to assist. One of the hearing impaired asked who owned all those cars at Jacky’s and one of our volunteers pointed to Jacky. They began talking to Jacky via the interpreter and Jacky spent plenty of time answering all their questions. Jacky was a great host! After the show on Saturday Jacky invited all the volunteers to his house Sunday morning to see even more of his private collection and again spent a great deal of time telling us about all his cars.
This year’s show was a great event with a lot of moving parts, which kept everyone busy. At the end of the day the board voted along with all the volunteers at the show to keep this show in Hiawassee at the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds. The vote was unanimous.
