***COVID-19 NEWS & UPDATE***
***MATM 2020 OFFICIALLY POSTPONED***
2021 EVENT DETAILS - TBD
MAY 2021 (Rain or Shine)
Where do I begin? Where do I end?My posts get long winded so I will keep this pretty simple and to the point.MUSTANGS AT THE MOUNTAIN is officially off for 2020 and postponed until May 2021.Look. I don't know where I stand on the whole COVID-19 thing. I know for the most part it is real and I will leave it at that. We have 2 factors that determined postponing our event until 2021 with COVID being 1 and 2 being the protests regarding the Confederate carving on Stone Mountain overlooking our event. I will touch on both of these things below.COVID-19: We live in Florida which apparently is a hot spot for COVID where they are screaming to shut our state down. Come September I don't even know if they will allow Floridians to travel to other states much as they did with NY back when this started. Checkpoints at state lines not allowing anyone from a certain state into a certain state. Will this happen? I doubt it. But is there a chance? Possibly.Large gatherings. 300-400 Mustangs. Over 1,000 people in one place. Do I think we will be fine? Yes. Is there a chance someone with COVID comes to our show? Probably. Will someone get sick? I have no idea.I have had a long discussion with my wife and my MATM team. Do I want to put the event on? Hell yes. Do I want a phone call or message a month after our event from a parent saying their son went to the show and is now dead. Or a wife saying her husband went to the show and is now dead. Look I get it. This whole thing is absurd. But do I want this kind of situation on my shoulders? Feeling responsible for the death of a person because I pushed to move forward with the event. Absolutely not. Do I think someone will die after attending our event. No. Is there a chance? In the realm of things...I guess there could be.There are a lot of variables regarding COVID-19. I don't want to be responsible for one of these variables regardless of what I believe from the news or the government. Nobody close to me has had COVID since this started. I won't get into politics or the media but for the safety of YOU and the safety for US I feel the smartest decision like many others is to put this off until May 2021. I hope you all understand my decision. I am not doing it to keep my safe and healthy. I am doing it to keep you safe and healthy so we can see you next year. There is already enough stress putting on a normal event but the stress of putting an event on with the fear of someone coughing on you is really something that I can't handle.People will be mad. People are always mad about something. People will be mad this event has been postponed. People would be mad that I didn't postpone it. People get mad about something each year at the event so it is just reality. I know I will get an email or message or post ripping me apart for my decision. But I get it.PROTESTS: There are protests across the nation right now with one being right inside the park to remove the Confederate carving on the side of Stone Mountain. There have been marches inside the park with armed men and women. We don't live in the area so I can only go by what I see on the news. But I have seen a march with over 1,000 protesters lining the streets in the park and blocking the roadways. Again...I get it. There is a lot going on in the world right now with this being bigger than COVID.There have already been pricing bids to fill in the carving on the mountain. It is the largest Confederate monument in the world. I get it. While are show is not and has never been about the monument it is simply the location we chose for our event 13 years ago. It is a beautiful park and a central location for many to come from out of town and great things to do with your family. I get it. We get it. We don't want our event to be tied to any protests or the site of protests. We don't want our event to be labeled as anything other than a Mustang show. That will be difficult right now simply based on its location inside of the park. Will the event move next year? I don't know.There is a lot going on in the world. I want everything to be back to normal like all of us. It saddens me and breaks my heart to make this post. But it is reality right now. I put this show on for you. So I feel like I am taking away a sense of normalcy for so many of you. But I don't want to take away anything more than that. I don't want that very small chance of someone getting sick and dying. Again..I get it but I have to also think of me and my family. Lawsuits are real. Do I think we would get sued for a wrongful death because I chose to move forward with the show? No. Is there a chance? With everything in life there is a chance with anything. It simply is not worth the risk on both scenarios.Please accept our sincerest apologies on pushing this until May 2021. But our single focus is you. I will be posting more info but I wanted to put this message out there for now.-Donnie
MAY 20201. This will be the last hello and final goodbye for MATM. 13 years strong so join us and celebrate the Mustang and our final event. We are planning on going back to our roots and closing out with a bang. This show started more as a family reunion. There were no awards. There was no judging. We just had a relaxing time in the park looking at beautiful Mustangs. People could walk around the show without feeling they would miss the judges. They took their kids to the top of the mountain without the stress of getting back to their car in time to be judged. I want to go back the the days of chill. The basis on what built this event. We will have several awards presented from our team. These awards won't be based on cleanliness so no need to stress about cleaning. These are based on what we love at the show.
Specialty award include the following that are hand selected by our team:
FAVORITE PAINT | FAVORITE WRAP | FAVORITE INTERIOR | FAVORITE ENGINE | FAVORITE FEMALE DRIVEN (CHOSEN BY FEMALE) | FAVORITE SPECIAL EDITION | FAVORITE OVERALL | FAVORITE DISPLAY | FAVORITE ORIGINALITY | FAVORITE BONE STOCK | FAVORITE CONVERTIBLE | FAVORITE LICENCE PLATE | FAVORITE CLASSIC | FAVORITE FOX | FAVORITE SN95 | FAVORITE NEW EDGE | FAVORITE S197 | FAVORITE S550
Entire show is Display Only
$25 SHOW FEE | Park entry is still a separate cost of $20
We are going with a "Pack the Park" slogan. Create the largest Mustang cruise-in in the southeast. Bring your friends, family, clubs, etc. As always food will be on site and we will work hard to provide more vendors for 2020. Come as you wish. Leave as you wish. Stay as long as you like.
