This year marks milestones in two
watershed areas of American culture: fast cars and great music! In 2004, we are celebrating the 40th
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

We arrived in
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 . 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
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
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

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.
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
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
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
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
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
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!
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 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.

The 20th Annual Mustang & Ford Show Update
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

volunteer please contact Rusty Wiseman (804) 357-6196 or Dave
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.
Dave’s Mustang Trivia
By David Lythgoe
1. From 1982 to 1986 which Mustang GT had the hood graphic delete option?
2. In what year did Robert Rewey and Neil Ressler form SVT?
3. What was the first year that Ford SVT offers the Independent Rear Suspension (IRS)?
4. Which was the first year Ford installed the Halogen Headlight on the Mustang?
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.
News From The CCCCVa
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.
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.
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
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.
