    All are invited to our 3rd Toys For Tots car show December 5th at Fanning Springs Historical Park from 11am-3pm. Join us along the scenic Suwannee River where U.S. 19 crosses it in Fanning Springs. It’s open to all classic, custom, and special interest vehicles, registration is FREE. We’d appreciate a donation of new, unwrapped toys of all sorts or cash donations for the kids. 100% of it goes to Toys For Tots, not just the profits. Again this year Steve and Paula are donating everything to put on the show.
    Be sure to bring your fastest valve covers to race and get your arm limbered up for corn hole tossing. Music, 50/50 drawing, door prizes, and just after dark the Christmas boat parade. Win the 4’ tall Best Of Show trophy and decorate it for your tree.
    We’re planning the day as normal as possible but please be respectful of others concerning the virus, thanks.
    For more info call Steve Smyrski at 727-422-0787 or email Dana at itzaluks@outlook.com
    Thanks so much if you’d help spread the word about our event. We’re getting a late start due to uncertainty about the virus, hopefully it will remain ok to have the show. We’re looking forward to seeing those who can make it and wish everyone at GSR a wonderful Holiday Season and 2021 has got to be better. Thanks again, Dana Sheffield

  • Covid-19 May Shut Us Down For Now, But Can't Hold Us Down Forever!!

    As you are reading this, I'm sure it's safe to assume that clearly you've seen, heard, and ingested about all you want to hear about coronavirus, or COVID-19.  I am with you on that note, so I will keep this short and sweet.

    This epidemic/pandemic, has turned into a real pain in the rear for car enthuthiast everywhere. Car shows, shut down, races cancelled, fundraisers shut down. Intense social distancing. It's a nightmare coming true. It has definitely changed the way we move forward as well, and am curious to see how that all plays out in the near future. I wanted to let everyone in the club know, that as soon as we can get back to a somewhat normal reality once again, we will resume right where we left off, and try at least to have some sense of normalcy back in our lives haha. Of course, while practicing safe distancing.

    Amongst you all being safe and practing safe social distancing, I hope that you have had at least an opportunity to enjoy your mustang in some way shape or form. Even more so, I hope that you all are doing well. So with that, I bid you all well, and hope everyone the best.

    If you need to reach out for any reason, please feel free to email me at swampcitymustangclub@gmail.com
