Valdosta - Cool cars and car enthusiasts are coming to south Georgia to celebrate the 20th anniversary of an auto parts company.

Steeda Autosports is the top manufacturer of high performance vehicles, parts and accessories for Ford.

They announced in March that they'd relocate their headquarters from Florida to Valdosta.

It's celebration usually brings hundreds of mustangs and their drivers to town.

Although their facility is still a year a way from opening it's doors, the company has chosen to hold it's party in South Georgia.

"The welcome of the community helped us choose Valdosta plus this is where our new home is going to be so why start celebrating later when you can start sooner?" says Dario Orlando, Steeda President.

Festivities begin Friday at 6:00 PM with a meet and greet at the Rainwater Conference Center.

Saturday morning will kick off with drag racing at the Motor sports park in Cecil...a picnic at the new facility and a final bash in downtown Valdosta.
