47th Annual Fall Regional

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.
See the great photos on the gallery page .

The 2020 NEGMC President’s Award & Prestige Awards Update

The NEGMC awards program is back for 2020. We will continue to have two awards, the President’s Award and the Prestige Award.  The aim of these Awards is to encourage membership participation in the Club’s various activities and to acknowledge those members that do participate.

There are two award categories:

First is the NEGMC President’s Award – This Award is for the members participating in activities with the Club during the year.  Points are assigned and any member that achieves a points total of 100 points are more will receive this Award.

Next is the NEGMC Prestige Awards which are broken down into three class groupings by age of the NEGMC Members cars. Those breakdowns are: Prestige Class 64.5 – 78; Prestige Class 79 – 04;  and Prestige Class 05 – 20.  The Prestige Awards are given to each NEGMC Member that has accumulated the top points in each class.

There are still several qualifying NEGMC Meetings and Car Shows remaining for this year that can help you achieve your goals.

Additional information is available on the web site’s Awards tab or by this link:  NEGMC Awards Program  

Red Grille Medallion Award!

Congratulations to Kenny and Lisa for being awarded the MCA Red Grille Medallion for their 2004 Mach 1.  In addition to the Red Grille Medallion Award, they also received a Gold Award for the Houston show.

Great Going!!

For those of you thinking of striving for their own Grille Medallion this is how to achieve that goal:

When you attend a National event you will earn 2 points for your Mustang when receiving a Gold Award (1st) and 1 point for a Silver Award (2nd) at that show.

When you attend a Grand National event you will earn 3 points for your Mustang when receiving a Gold Award (1st) and 2 points for a Silver Award (2nd) at that show.

It takes 20 accumulated points to earn one of two different types of Grille Medallions:

  • Red medallions are awarded in the Occasionally Driven; Daily Driven and Modified Classes
  • Blue medallions are awarded in the Concours; Thoroughbred and Unrestored classes

Once you accumulate 20 points then you simply need to fill out the form (typically in the MCA magazine) and submit it.

It takes a dedicated individual and/or individuals to achieve this recognition which only adds to the awards prestige.

Again congratulations to Kenny and Lisa as it has been several years since a NE Georgia Mustang Club member has received a Grille Medallion.

 

 

NE Georgia Mustang Club News (02.07.19)

We are off to a very exciting year. We conducted our first board meeting, evaluating all the work ahead of us this year. We are currently in the throws of moving our Mustang Unlimited show to YearOne Muscle Car Parts in Braselton, GA and all the planning that is involved. For may years we were fortunate to have an awesome relationship with all the people who worked at Mustang Unlimited and they always did an incredible job hosting our shows. With Mustang Unlimited closing the Georgia location, it created an opportunity for us to seek a new site for our show. YearOne has been gracious to invite us to start the car season at their location. Not only are they providing the site, but partnering with us to have a very successful event. You will probably see some not Ford products at our show and a section will be set aside for those cars. It was our intention to have an only Ford show but given that fact, YearOne has been doing shows there for many years, open to all automobiles. so, it may happen that something other than a Ford product may show up and as car guys we don’t want to turn anyone away. Our awards will be focused on Ford products. As far as a Club Show, the voting will be separate from the non-Ford cars. However, there will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for the non-Ford cars. I simply want to bring this to your attention so if there are non-Ford cars there, it would not come as a surprise.

We have a ton of events planned for this year as you will see on our website calendar. This should appeal to all our members, as it will not be just car shows. Our next meeting, at Gateway Classic Cars, we will discuss the usual events and in addition, will be rolling out many new opportunities for our club and members.

The club address has been changed from Baldwin, GA to Braselton, GA to facilitate our ability to retrieve mail from the PO Box. We have updated our information on the MCA site to reflect our new address and officers, so as you search for clubs on the MCA website you will see that as well. The NEGMC website is being updated daily, which keeps it current. It is your best resource for information pertaining to the club and other activities.

Our spring show is now an MCA regional show making both shows MCA regional shows. Our March show is listed in Mustang Times (Maggie Valley soon to follow). We had a guy in NC saying he saw it listed in Mustang Times and is coming to the March show. Maggie Valley planning is going hand and hand with the YearOne planning and both prove to be great events.

I’m going to stop here, but I wanted to bring you up to date on some of the club activities. More information to come at the February meeting. Again, it is at Gateway Classics in Alpharetta. Be sure to have your club decal on your windshield. The decals will be available at Gateway if you do not have one (I will tell you why at the meeting.) Bring your chairs!

See you soon,

Steve
