News From The Blue Oval


          This year marks milestones in two watershed areas of American culture: fast cars and great music!  In 2004, we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of America's quintessential muscle car, the Ford Mustang, the 50th anniversary of America's prototypical "cruising" car, the Ford Thunderbird, and the 50th anniversary of rock 'n' roll music.

          Cruisin' Legends like the Ford Mustang and the Ford Thunderbird, and great rock tunes simply grew up together; they inspired one another and are part of the same American cultural experience.

          The natural connection between these milestones has inspired Ford Motor

Company to create a celebration event entitled; "Ford Cruisin' Legends". In conjunction with one of the country's largest automotive enthusiast event, the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, "Cruisin' Legends" will take place August 20th to the 21st in Birmingham, Michigan.

27th Annual Shelby Spring Fling – May 21st! If you want to cruise out of state, this show is the place to go. Jimmy and I left on Thursday, May 20th at 6:00am (Jimmy’s favorite time to leave on a trip) in our 1965 Fastback 2+2 for Nashville, Indiana, for the 27th Annual Shelby Spring Fling. The directions are easy to follow – go to Louisville, Kentucky, turn right and drive north for about an hour.

          We arrived in Columbus, Indiana, (about 15 miles from Brown County State Park) at 7:00pm Thursday evening and stopped to see our son and his family. Yes, we had a dual purpose; our son lives just 15 miles from the Brown County State Park.

          Friday morning we got up early for the Pony Trails, which is part of the activities scheduled during the Spring Fling. The meeting place was the park. We got there at 8:30am. Jeff Ford, the editor of Mustangs & Fords Magazine was rounding up the ponies. Everyone got a map of the route, cranked up and rumbled off. There were 163 Mustangs cruising the rolling green farmland and quaint little towns to our destination, which was Madison, Indiana on the banks of the Ohio River. We had a police escort into town and also as we left. The local folks were lined up here and there on the streets waving and giving thumbs up to the Mustangs as we passed by. We stopped on the riverfront, parked the cars for display and spent our free time touring the antique shops and eating lunch. We ate our lunch on a riverboat on the Ohio River. The Mayor of the town greeted us and presented a trophy for his favorite Mustang there (it wasn’t ours). We left Madison, by police escort at 2:00pm for our return trip to Brown County. The cruise was great fun!

          Saturday everyone met at the park for the car Show. The Concourse cars are the only ones judged. The rest of the trophies were awarded by popular vote. Hot Dogs and Indiana famous Chili was served and we walked around and talked to a lot of folks and did our popular vote judging. Unlike the 40th Anniversary Car Show in Nashville, Tennessee, where we met people from around the US and the World, these folks at the Spring Fling were primarily from Wisconsin, Michigan, Kentucky and of course Indiana, and us from Virginia.

          Saturday evening we attended a banquet at a beautiful rustic lodge in the park. Jimmy and I were looking for a place to sit and found two seats at a table near the front. I introduced myself to the guy next to me, his name was Bob Wood, who was the guest speaker for the evening. I asked him about his topic and he asked me if I had ever heard of the Ford GT40. I asked him if it was like the Mustang GT? Not really! He gave me his trading card with his personal Ford GT40 on the card. His car now has a value of $250,000. However, my Mustang GT comment was a good lead in for his presentation. Evidently he and his two partners have acquired the licensing for everything related to the Ford GT40. Ford sold the licensing to an English company, Safir, in the late 1960’s and Bob Wood and his partners bought the rights from Safir. Ford now would like the licensing back but evidently they have not come up with the enough money. They may call their new prototype car introduced in 2001 a Ford GT but, cannot call it a Ford GT40. Wonder why Ford sold those rights in the first place? However we did receive an award at the banquet, not for our car, for the Mustang and owners who had traveled the farthest. We won a $50.00 gift certificate for car parts. We had traveled almost 700 miles out there.

          On Sunday there was a road rally. We did not attend it this year but hope to next year. We spent the day with our son Josh and his family, which includes three adorable granddaughters. Jimmy helped Josh put an engine into the truck he is restoring. Josh completely rebuilt the engine himself. Jimmy was Josh’s helper. The student is now the teacher!

          We left Monday morning. The drive out and back was great. The almost 40-year-old Mustang just sailed. The manual air conditioning worked well as long as the car was moving. One of the best parts about driving an old Mustang is people traveling along the highway. They wave, give you a thumbs up and whenever you stop, someone will always comment on the car and or tell you a Mustang story about one they had years ago.

          This was a great Mustang weekend for people with “Mustang Mania”. The place is a perfect place for a car show. The people were great. We met the show directors Don and Ellen Scott almost immediately. They acted like we had been friends forever before the day was done. The scenery is beautiful; the drive out is good and easy to follow. They have cabins in the park, which can be rented for the weekend so you are close to all the activities and can do other things when not Mustanging. We think we will rent a large family cabin next year and have our son and his family over for more of the festivities.

          If you are looking for an out of state Mustang event we would definitely recommend this one. It is usually the third weekend in May. We had a great time and are looking forward to attending the 28th Annual Shelby Spring Fling in Nashville, Indiana.

CVMC Judges Clinic – July 10th! CVMC had a real good turnout for the 3rd & 4th generation Judge’s Clinic.  We had about 10 members make it to the clinic.

          Late Model Mustangs are the fastest going segment in the Mustang Hobby and has been for some time now.

          Rusty Wiseman brought his 3rd generation convertible and I brought my 4th generation coupe. Both of us pointed out some differences and what is stock and what was not.

          Don & Karen Lane hosted the Judge’s Clinic. I would like to thank them for their hospitality.

          I think everyone learned some useful information and had a good time. Thanks to everyone for coming out and participating in this clinic. I hope more of you will attend the next clinic we have.

CVMC Cruise In At Performance Autosports Open House – July 10th! We had a good turnout of about 10 Mustangs for this Cruise In. I was hoping to have more but as it turned out they had just enough space for us.



          Performance Autosports hosted the first ever Saleen National’s. I didn’t do a count on how many were there but it must have been between 40 to 50. These guys cane from Tennessee, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Virginia. I’m sure they are hoping for more next year.

          Mark LaMaskin put on a very good show. You should check out his facility.

A Day At VIR!  For the past few years a few of my friends and I have been traveling down to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) twice during the summer. For those of you who do not know, VIR is a 3.23-mile circuit track that is situated between South Boston and Danville Va.

          The track has been there since the fifties I think but it was closed in the late seventies due to some problems that occurred. In June four years ago they hosted a tribute to Carol Shelby as their re-opening event. This weekend also celebrated Shelby’s first win ever which occurred at VIR.



          This year we missed the early homecoming event, which hosts the Historical Sports Car Association with a weekend of classic and antique sports car racing. However we did make it down to the later event when they come back to VIR.

          The racing was Spectacular. The Mustangs were out in force that weekend with a number of Shelby Mustangs in the GT class and a few old Trans-AM Mustangs as well. There was everything there from 1966 Shelby fastback racecars to a 1995 Lemans SRP-1 racecar.

          The most exciting race of the weekend came during the production car class race. A 1972 Porsche 911 RSR finished first but second and third was being battled for between two Porsche 911 Carreras and two Mustangs and a Sunbeam Tiger.

          One Mustang was an original Shelby that had the 289 still in it but the other was a 1966 fastback sponsored by Mustangs Plus with a 302. The Mustangs had the power to pass the two Porsches in the straights but had a hard time getting away in the turns. On the second to last lap, The Porsche that had passed the Shelby Mustang for Second place was coming around the third turn with the Mustang on his back bumper. The Mustang pressured the Porsche enough to make him try to enter the turn to quickly and he lost control. He went off course, overcorrected, came back onto the track almost sideways almost hitting the front of the Mustang. It happened all right in front of us and it created some awesome pictures.

          This is a spectacular event that brings all sorts of historic racecars of every make and model from around the world to the track. I strongly suggest that you think about going down to VIR next year when they come back. Also the Rolex Series is coming in October and I am planning on going down for this event as well. If you do not go down you will be able to watch coverage of the race on Speed Channel.



          For this event I took down our 1972 Detomaso Pantera. For a reasonable price of $50, you can tour the track behind the pace car in your car for a 30-minute period all weekend long during the lunch break.  Now in the past the pace car would go around 60-70 mph. When we lined up this time before the tour I noticed I was sitting behind a Buick sedan, a dodge dually truck, and an old Porsche 914. I thought for sure this would be the slowest track tour I would ever do. However, after we got on the track I noticed the pace car was flying down the track like it was at speed. I also noticed that the Buick sedan and the Dodge truck were pulling on the Porsche and me. I don’t know if the driver of the truck was crazy, or a good driver because whenever the truck would take a turn the inside tires would come off the ground and the outside tires looked like they were almost about to tuck under the vehicle. After about 20 minutes or so the sedan and Porsche pulled off, leaving me behind the truck who was behind an actual Shelby Cobra racecar. I slowed down coming down the back part of the track to give myself plenty of room between me and those in front. Coming out of the backset of turns, I put my foot into it and we clocked over 110 mph when I started slowing down. The car was just cruising at that speed at around 3500 Rpm’s as if to say “Let me go faster”. I could tell that even thought the Holman and Moody suspension had been on there for thirty plus years the Pantera was right at home on the track.

Performance Autosports Dyno Run – July 17th! CVMC invaded performance Autosports for the second time in a week. But, this time we were there to see what kind performance our Mustangs had.



          We had a really good turnout and a very good assortment of Mustangs, mostly Late Models. We did have a 1967 289 Mustang Convertible. We also had a BOSS Truck (guess who that belongs to) and a AC Cobra Kit Car.

          We had to have 10 cars or more to get the best discount (3 pulls for $55.00). I believe we had 13 cars there. Not a bad turnout for CVMC’s first Dyno Day! Next time we need to see more of those First Generation Mustangs there. I would really like to see what those BOSS’s, Mach 1’s, GT’s and Shelby’s would do.



          A good time was had by all. Until next time here’s Tire Smoke in your eyes!

By Tony Hall


Target Cruise In – July 17th! After the Dyno Day at Performance Autosports we decided to put together an impromptu Cruise over to Target on Midlothian Turnpike.

          There were only about 15 cars there because the weather was so iffy. About a half hour after we arrived and following the arrival of a handful of Mustangs from TCMC about 4 to 5 Chesterfield Police Cars and a Paddy Wagon arrived. The officer who spoke to me was very nice but told us that Target wanted us to leave the premises and that the Cruise In was over.

          I am informing everyone in CVMC not to go to Target on Saturday Nights looking for a Cruise In. It is over!!!

          On a personal note I don’t have a problem with Target ending the Cruise In. The property belongs to Target and they have every right to ask us to leave if that’s what they want. The problem I have is the way Target choose to approach the problem by sending the Police instead of the Manager to inform us that the Cruise In is over and why. Target did not choose wisely and the Police went a little over the top by bringing the Paddy Wagon. Of course this is just my opinion.

CVMC Lucy Corr Nursing Home Car Show – July 24th! Unfortunately this was a big washout. I hope they have better luck next year.

          Two bright notes! CVMC did have three Mustangs at the show two First Generation Mustangs and one Forth Generation Mustang. The Early Model Mustangs out numbered the Late Model Mustangs by 2 to 1.

          CVMC also out numbered the Corvette’s 3 to 0. I guess the Corvette’s melt in the rain.

By Tony Hall


CVMC Hardee’s Cruise In, Chester – July 24th! Just like the Lucy Corr Car Show this was a total washout! We will have better luck next time.

News From MCA

Auto Alliance Inc. – Flat Rock, MI

May 8, 2004

9:00 AM


          President Bill Johnson called the meeting to order. Appreciation was shown to Art Hyde and all those at Ford, the DAP plant and at Alliance, Inc. They went above and beyond to be certain everyone had a most memorable tour, the last tour to be held at the DAP plant and our first through Alliance, Inc., the new “home” of the Mustang. This experience of a lifetime could not have taken place without the help of many, many people. Our hats are off to all. MCA is extremely grateful for your hospitality.

          Secretary Beverly Bragg called the roll and reported a quorum was present. After welcoming all present, the introduction of Regional Directors and guests took place. The minutes from the previous BOD meeting were presented and accepted as written.


Treasurer’s Report – Mr. Arley Whitsell


          Mr. Whitsell gave a quarterly financial report through March 2004 ending on the plus side. Mr. Whitsell gave a brief overview of the MCA Bank account their purpose and status with respect to regular operating accounts and special event accounts. Mr. Whitsell also expressed the future intent for these accounts and their importance in maintaining a zero based budget. A full report will be presented at the July 10, 2004 BOD meeting.


Executive Committee Report April - May– Mr. Johnson


          Mr. Johnson reported that the committee accepted Mr. Whitsell’s proposal to set up a new bank account at Wachovia Bank to house the operating account. The reason being existing Bank lacks quick and immediate means of reporting and that web and Internet online access in banking is critical in today’s business world. Mr. Johnson after presenting this made a motion that the BOD accept the request to change the bank account to Wachovia Bank of VA. Motion was seconded and passed. The account at Brand Bank in Georgia will be phased out to the new Wachovia account.

          Mr. Johnson reported that Executive Committee meetings have been conducted through conference calls sponsored by Ford. MCA is grateful. The Executive Committee addressed and took action on several issues brought to our attention regarding the aftermath and the 40th Committee duties. It was determined that no new financial obligations – exclusive of those known to exist – will be entertained and the existence of the 40th Anniversary Committee be dissolved as having fulfilled their obligations to the event. Mr. Johnson made a motion that Treasurer Arley Whitsell receive a confidence vote from the BOD to settle out and close out the 40th event financial business as to when and how he sees fit and has discussed. Dean Hillestad seconded and motion passed.

          Mr. Johnson made a motion that the BOD approve the Executive Committee recommendation that MCA have a 30th Birthday of MCA Celebration and a 45th Anniversary of the Mustang Celebration and that a committee be formed to search for a Chairperson or persons and location of these events. Mr. Hillestad seconded and the motion passed.

          Mr. Johnson made a motion that the BOD and MCA adhere to the bylaws regarding lifetime memberships for past full term presidents only and that those who have received and those to receive as having served the 40th Anniversary events will be “grand fathered”. Motion seconded and passed.

          Mr. Johnson made a motion to appropriate up to $1000.00 for a new copy machine. Motion seconded and passed.


Publishing Committee – Austin Craig


          Mr. Craig was pleased to announce the great response received for the timely delivery of the Mustang Times. Sponsorship and advertising has taken a great upturn due to the new look MT has been given. He spoke of Josh Bolger’s talent and gave Mr. Bolger a chance to speak about himself.


Group Break  - Photo Shoot in Lobby among Great Cars


          Mr. Johnson spoke about and showed the Proclamation and Resolution from the State of Tennessee presented to MCA regarding the 40th Anniversary Celebration in Nashville, TN and how very proud we are to have received it. What an honor.

          Art Hyde and Austin Craig gave an overview of the 40th event. With over 100,000 attendees, 3,100 show cars, 300 cars for the track event, our sponsors rigs and vendors we are looking forward to a full report next month. The event was awesome. Lessons learned along with great features were discussed and will be useful in planning the 30th MCA BOD and the 45th Mustang Anniversary.


Accessory Report – Beverly Bragg


          Mrs. Bragg presented a new item available through MCA (to be pictured on the web and in Mustang Times) of a hand blown, hand painted glass 40th Anniversary Christmas ornament.

          Wanda Whitsell explained the retirement decals that are now available for purchase and introduced the program. MCA also has the new heavily embroidered medallion patch and it is available for sale to those who have earned their medallions.

          Beverly reported that MCA’s efforts under the MCA tent regarding membership and accessory sales ware successful.

          Mr. Chip Hill made a proposal to MCA to market a set of panoramic 40th pictures. Mr. Johnson made a motion to the BOD to accept Mr. Hill’s offer to market this set of pictures. Motion was seconded following discussion and motion was passed.


Annual Banquet – Chuck Micele


          Mr. Micele made a motion – I propose that MCA dispense with the By Law provision that requires the annual meeting of MCA in January be held in the State of Georgia so that MCA is allowed to hold the annual meeting in any State of choice. Mr. Hillestad seconded the motion. Motion passed. Mr. Hampton voted no. This action is a two-stage process and will be presented again in July.

          Mr. Johnson talking about MCA’s future and financial status proposed a three person committee be formed to receive and report on the feasibility of an MCA Administrator, Financial Advisor and or a ¾ to full time accounting service to keep, record, maintain, and report monthly financial business.

2005 Shows

Olympia, WA – August 12-14

The 20th Annual Mustang & Ford Show Update

By Tony Hall


          I am glad to report that our 20th Annual Mustang & Ford Show is shaping up really well. We have acquired many sponsors and may acquire a few more before September 1, 2004.

          We quite a few volunteers for the show but, we can always use more. If you want to volunteer please contact Rusty Wiseman (804) 357-6196 or Dave Dickey (804) 730-1450.

          Remember if you want to DISPLAY your Mustang the fee is only $10.00. We hope for a great show this year so we will not have a fee for CVMC members displaying their Mustangs next year.

          Trophies have been bought and Dash Plaques ordered.

          We have about 28 pre-registrations so far.

Rick’s Tip’s

By Rick Nochta


New Tooling For The First Generation Mustang’s!


          For a couple of years I had heard that someone (I finally found out who) had purchased the original Ford Tooling for the 1964 to 1973 Ford Mustang’s. They have been stamping sheet metal for over a year now and have constantly added new pieces. One of the most recent is the 1964 ½ Mustang hood which has some differences from the 1965 to 1966 hoods.

          Currently hoods, fenders, taillight panels, front & rear valances are available. I am hoping doors will be coming soon since it has been impossible to find rust free doors locally for 10 years. The southwest still has doors but the prices are high and the shipping cost is expensive. Repros are as good as it gets currently.

          We have noticed a much-improved fit over repro parts. The repro fenders for instance are wavy and can cost $200.00 to $300.00 to correct. In the long term the original tooling sheet metal is the way to go.

          We have tried the Ford tooling taillight panel on a 1966 Mustang and believe me it was nice. The repro taillight panels are a nightmare.

          In conclusion when fixing up your old Mustang always use the original Ford tooling panels.

           I have MCA and Shelby Club judging experience and can help with difficult questions. Please feel free to call me at (804) 321-5383 during the day.


Happy Cruising!




News From The CCCCVa

By Fred Fann


Car Hobbyist News From the Council


          Sales of hybrid vehicles, those combination small gas engine and electric motor, are up. The recent jump in gas prices and the news that gas will continue to hover in the $2 per gallon range has sent people searching for better mileage vehicles and forced Ford and GM to entice sales of SUV’s with rebates of $5000. But what would happen if all of us went to hybrids, hydrogen fuel vehicles or just cut our gasoline usage? The short answer is there wouldn’t be much money to fix and build roads. State and federal taxes on gasoline and diesel are the main providers of money for our roads.
          No need to worry because the Oregon Road User Fee Task Force has spent two years studying how to go from a gasoline tax to a mileage tax. Yes, where there is a government need there will be a way to tax to pay for that need.
Oregon State University researchers have developed technology that can distinguish miles driven in Oregon from those driven elsewhere, and then allow a mileage tax to be calculated and paid at the pump in place of the state gas tax.
          So as you can see there is no need to worry about road building and maintenance when we finally go to the water powered hydrogen fuel cell cars.
          My 7th grade science textbook stated that all the oil supplies in the world would be exhausted in the mid 1980’s and we would have to find other energy sources. Well that didn’t come true and in fact the estimated oil reserves have continued to climb despite those high prices at the pump. Now some scientists believe that oil is still being formed deep in the earth. Sounds strange but there are proof.
Eugene Island in the Gulf of Mexico has been a source of crude oil for years. In the 60’s and 70’s about 15,000 barrels a day were being pumped. By the 80’s it was down to 4,000 barrels a day and everyone thought the oil reserves were being pumped out. Current theory states that oil is produced by the decay of animal and plant matter over millions of years. But a strange thing happened at Eugene Island - production is back up to 15,000 barrels a day and the oil is “younger” in age than the previous oil. A couple of scientists now believe that the formation of oil is an inorganic process where methane gas is converted under great pressure 5 to 20 miles below the earth’s surface. This new theory does explain two things. One the ever increasing oil reserves and two, why oil is found in places not thought to have a lot of dinosaurs and pre-historic plants. Oil chemistry also doesn’t vary with depth while fossils always vary with depth.
          This makes for some interesting thought and could mean that oil will continue to be produced by the earth giving us a relatively low cost source of energy and of course having some real political consequences.
          And the other good news is that so far this year we have not had a single bad ozone day in the
Richmond area. DEQ and EPA contribute this to the weather conditions. It hasn’t been real hot for several days in a row and we’ve had plenty of rain. Why don’t they just admit that the amount of ozone is directly related to weather and not to the number of cars on the road?


Thank You!


          I wish to thank the members of the Central Virginia Mustang Club for all the kind words, thoughts, prayers, emails, cards and the beautiful plant arrangement. Your kindness helped me to cope with the loss of my mother.


Thanks – Fred Fann
