Turn5’s Scholarship Winners for Spring 2021

AmericanMuscle, AmericanTrucks & ExtremeTerrain, are proud to announce their bi-annual college scholarship program winners with 3 additional student scholarships awarded for Spring 2021. Recipients in this round earned an additional $7,500 in funding for a total of $117,000 in scholarships awarded from Turn5 (home of AmericanMuscle, AmericanTrucks & ExtremeTerrain) since the programs’ inception. 

Based on original essay submissions, the Philadelphia-based e-commerce retailer has selected MyKenna Zettle, Andrew Pankratz, and Daniel Hartman to receive $2500 towards their tuition fees for the upcoming semester.

ExtremeTerrain’s scholarship is awarded to students pursuing biology or a related environmental studies degree. In response to the essay question, MyKenna from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford talked about her interest in translational ecology and her own experiences growing up in rural Pennsylvania. She believes that “science should be made accessible for any audience, no matter their socioeconomic or educational background.” MyKenna’s $2500 award will be applied towards her double-major in environmental studies and biology.

Daniel Hartman from the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) is the recipient of AmericanMuscle’s $2500 auto-focused scholarship program. Daniel’s interest in cars was piqued at an early age watching his father do engine work and help his friends mod their vehicles. Eventually, this inspired him to take performance classes as UTI. Fueled by his passion and curiosity, Daniel aspires to apply his education to do outstanding work while working toward his goal of making an all-electric American muscle car.

Finally, Andrew Pankratz is AmericanTrucks’ scholarship winner and will receive $2500 towards his spring 2021 tuition. Andrew’s essay focused on how he plans to use his education to contribute to a thriving community of trade workers who are dedicated to a hands-on approach to learning. Andrew is a fourth-generation woodworker who is turning his passion into a career by majoring in Architectural Carpentry at the American College of the Building Arts.

Turn5 unveiled its first scholarship program in 2013 and since then has given $117,000 to students across the United States. The AmericanMuscle, AmericanTrucks & ExtremeTerrain scholarship programs are awarded bi-annually with application deadlines in June and October. Interested high-school seniors, or full-time university/college/tech students pursuing relevant degrees, are invited to send in their essays for the fall 2021 semester.

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 .

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.
