Mustangs at the Beach is a Mustang Club of America (MCA) Car Show set on Long Island’s scenic north shore in Sands Point, NY’s beautiful Sands Point Preserve, the 216-acre Guggenheim Estate for the weekend of May 19 - 20th. Featuring Castle Gould and Hempstead House, a mile of private beach, ponds and woodlands teaming with wildlife, a 5-star banquet facility, nature trails and picnic grounds, this frequent wedding destination is just 16 miles east of New York City on Long Island, a 35 minute train ride away. We have arranged for ample parking facilities, all day foodservice, bathrooms, first aid, and security.
About the Show: This second nationally recognized mustang show on Long Island is expected to bring 200+ cars, and significant media attention. Many are expected from outside of the Long Island – New York City metropolitan area. The MCA is promoting this to its 11,000+ members in all 50 states and Canada.
About Us: Mustangs at the Beach was created by members of the Mustang Shelby Club of Long Island (an MCA regional club), who are enthusiastic about bringing MCA National Shows to NY, specifically Long Island. As the Ford Mustang was introduced at the 1964 World’s Fair in Flushing, NY - a part of New York City that resides on Long Island, we embrace the preservation, care, history and enjoyment of the Ford Mustang – here where it all began.
About the Show Venue: Mustangs at the Beach is located on the grounds of the former Guggenheim Estate currently known as the Sands Point Preserve, in Sands Point, NY, with its historic Castle Gould, Hempstead House, and scenic lawns, trails, and beach front. Located mid-way between the heart of New York City and Long Island’s East End, Mustangs at the Beach takes advantage of several acres of flat well manicured lawn providing a large contiguous area to display our cars over looking the beach. Ample parking for spectators, vendors and trailers has been provided.
Sands Point Preserve: This historic treasure is a throwback to the Great Gatsby era, when late 19th and early 20th century industrialists and their families built Long Island’s Gold Coast. Built by steel magnate Harold Gould in 1902, then later purchased by noted philanthropist Daniel Guggenheim in 1917, this magnificent setting, with its rich history, is the perfect setting for an MCA show. Tours of the Castle and Hempstead house, nature trails for walks & hiking, on site food service, vendors and sponsors onsite, are complemented by the close proximity to the many planned activities.
