Virginia Motor Trend International Auto Show! CVMC’s Display at the Virginia International Auto Show was a huge success!
We were displayed in the Foyer Area of the Richmond Convention Center. On Thursday Night Motor Trend, the Show Promoters had a VIP party amongst our Mustang Display. Lane Ramsey said the Mustangs were a big hit with the VIP’s.
All day Friday, Saturday and Sunday we had a large steady stream of visitors checking out the Mustangs.
We had a blast and I think everyone displaying their Mustang’s had as much if not more fun than those checking them out. Shoot even the Corvette Club said we had a great display! But, I’ll bet they will never admit it (Big Evil Grin)!
I would like to thank the following for participating in the Show. With out them our Display would never have happened.
Steve Coleman – 1999 Black 35th Anniversary Mustang GT Coupe; George Bobrovsky – 1989 Black Mustang GT Convertible; Dave Dickey – 1967 Aqua Mustang Sprint Coupe; Richard Jones – 1964 ½ Red Mustang Convertible; Llew Stakes – 1969 Green Mustang Convertible; Rusty Wiseman – 2003 Blue Mustang Mach 1; Ben & Cynthia Brown – 2001 Blue Mustang Bullitt; Billy McDaniel – 1970 Yellow Mustang Mach 1; Carroll Lipscombe – 1964 ½ Blue Mustang Convertible; Tony Hall – 1995 Red Mustang SVT Cobra; Don Smith – 1970 Blue Mustang Boss 302; Thomas Victory – 1984 Black Mustang SVO Hatchback; Kendall Turner – 1985 Red Mustang Saleen Hatchback; Mike Rowe – 1999 Red Mustang SVT Cobra Convertible; Lane Ramsey – 1969 Blue Mustang Shelby GT-350 Fastback; Lee Hardy-1993 Mustang SVT Cobra; Jim Myracle - 1968 Mustang Shelby GT500KR
On behalf of CVMC I would like to thank Motor Trend and the Richmond Convention Center for having us at their show and we hope to be part of the Virginia International Auto Show for many years.

CNU Motorsports Car Show April 17th! One of our club members, Chris Byrne is attending Christopher Newport University this year. He joined a car club at school and they are putting on a show this month.

40th Anniversary Update! As you know I have taken it upon myself to plan a trip to the 40th Anniversary Celebration on the Mustang in Nashville, TN at the Nashville Super Speedway. I had reserved 9 rooms at a Hampton INN and 9 rooms at a Super 8. They were gone, but due to some cancellations I now have 4 rooms. If no one requests the rooms by April 12th I will be canceling them. The following people are slated to be going.
Bill & Billie Jarvis, Paul Oliver, Steve Coleman, Ted & Cathy Roberson, Rusty Wiseman, Betty Wiseman, Billy & Kim McDaniel, Mike Noble, Ray & Judy Weidman, Tony Hall, Don & Karen Lane,
Melissa Riddle, Kathy McWilliams, Don Smith & Family
The hotels are approximately 16 miles from the Nashville Speedway. As I found out the Host hotel, which is more expensive, is over 30 miles from the speedway. The plan is to Cruise up on Wed April 14th and leave Monday Morning April 19th. If this does not work for you then I may be able to change the room dates, but I don’t think you will want to miss a thing.
For those that are traveling with us, we will be meeting on Wednesday April 14th at 5:45am at the Rest stop around mile marker 169-168, before the Oilville Exit on I-64. If you are interested please let me know. You can email me at email@example.com or call me at 804-357-6196. This is a very special celebration you won’t want to miss.

Now that the year has started off and some of you are seeing that your lawn has gone from snowy white to a shade of green.... that’s the final proof you need to get that car or cars ready for the show season. And speaking of the show season...Mar 19th kicks it off for the MCA National Shows, hosted by the Gulf Coast Regional Mustang Club in Pensacola FL. http://www.gcrmc.com Go to their web page for all the latest!
In April of course comes the 40th Anniversary show!
http://www.mustang.org/specialevents/MCA.cfm?home Go to that web page and see what updates exist, what events are sold out and what great things to do are still available!
Remember, putting on a show of that magnitude requires several volunteers and we need you! The judging and parking of the cars always needs assistance firstname.lastname@example.org (Jack) and email@example.com (Wes) are the people to contact for judging and
firstname.lastname@example.org are the contacts on traffic control!
General parking is handled by email@example.com (Tony) and for those having a car at the show site and driving a different one...you know how important that is! Please be generous and lend a hand any time you can!
The heritage room will have displays and bodies are needed there.
Do you have a good knowledge of Mustangs? Do you want to help with greeting the VIP's and assist with crowd control? Contact Deanstang@aol.com (Dean) to volunteer some time!
Are you entering a car? You may be getting a participant gift box but it takes people to hand them out to make that happen. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Vernon) and volunteer some time to hand them out!
We need people to assign to the Ford VIP's. Ideally it would be two volunteers needed for each day of the event to escort them around and be available for them. Please ask among your clubs members if you have people willing to give up a day for this cause! Can you think of a better time to have a club shirt on?
Remember, this is an MCA sponsored event. We can use anyone that has some free time. Let me know how I can help place you within your specialty!
Are you having an event and want to get it on the MCA web page? Chip Hill has worked out a way to submit an MCA event submission form to make things easier for all. Please submit them through the following web address!

I attended the AACA Annual meeting in Philadelphia, PA & handed out several flyers to W. VA & Virginia members & visitors I talked to. There was interest in our show.
Letters are going out to many Mustang parts suppliers and business’ requesting advertising, door prizes, goodie bag items, & trophy sponsorship.

Dave’s Mustang Trivia
By David Lythgoe
1. What year did Ford Motor Company offer Chrome Wheels for the Mustang?
Reproduction Tires vs.
The reproduction tires available for Mustang’s built between 1964 to 1970 are really very nice. They are well made and will last many years. They are a little more original to the Mustang of the 60’s and are very close the originals.
Only in the thoroughbred class at MCA Sanctioned Shows will points be deducted for reproduction tires. The thoroughbred class only allows original Ford equipment to be used.
The bad news for the reproduction tires is the harshness of the ride and handling. Polyglass technology is now 30 years old and current radials give a more comfortable ride and better handling. If you like to play on the street, I would recommend radial tires over reproduction. If the show circuits where you want to be then go with the reproductions tires.
I have Shelby Club and Mustang Club of America judging experience and can help with difficult decisions. Please feel free to call me at 804-321-5383 during the day.
News From The CCCCVa
The BIG news is that a conference committee has met and ironed out the differences between the two versions of SB 204 that were passed by both house of the General Assembly. While the Senate passed a version that would have placed a time limit on the keeping of project and parts cars; the House version did not. Thanks to a lot of hard work the bill has passed both houses and the governor is supposed to sign this measure into law. We will be one of the first states to allow car hobbyists to keep parts and project cars!
This could not have been done without a lot of work both by hobbyists and our friends in the Assembly. Thanks to this bill we now are very aware of who is for us and who is against us. And we will remember them at election time.
Many thanks go to Senator Quayle for having the intestinal fortitude to sponsor this bill and ride out the storm to get it passed. Many others helped: Senator Martin, Delegate Ingram, House Majority Leader Griffith, Senator Bell, Senator Edwards, Senator Reynolds and many others. They all worked hard on this bill. I also want to thank the presidents of the councils: Bill Laurent, Hal Hartel and of course Tom Cox. Tom worked harder than anyone to get this bill through. He made tons of phone calls and really bugged the you know what out of members of the assembly. IT takes this kind of dedication to beat out the lobbyists who toss money everywhere to get what they want. We can be proud of the fact that our grass roots effort beat the dollars of lobbyists.
I also wish to thank the many, many hobbyists who sent emails, letters and faxes. This is what gave us the leverage to win. I heard many times from the aides of the Assembly members that they were flooded with calls and correspondence.
As you know the race for the governor of this state begins soon. Along with the governor, positions of attorney general and lieutenant governor are also for election in 2005. Now guess who is running for lieutenant governor? The answer is Delegate Joe May.
You should remember May as the sponsor of the bill that created a remote emissions testing program in Northern Virginia. While there are many concerns about this type of testing for auto emissions the big problem hobbyists have is that the testing goes back to 1968 models. Stationary testing is not required for vehicles 25+ years old per state law.
I spoke to May about this last summer. He told me that his bill’s intention was not to target the older vehicles. But the DMV, charged with administrating the law, has determined that it does include cars back to 1968. I asked May to look into this. I haven’t heard from him.
When May announced he was running he stated, “I believe in individual liberty, personal responsibility and the sanctity of human life”. That’s nice but how about that personal responsibility thing? Maybe he could get the remote emissions law straightened out since he was its sponsor. Senator Bill Bolling is running against him for the Republican nomination.
On the back door it reads “We’ll Kick Your Ass” and on the front door it reads “And Take Your Donuts Too!”
