Issue 211







          This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Ford Mustang, the 50th anniversary of the Ford Thunderbird and the 50th anniversary of rock 'n' roll music.
          Ford is launching the Ford Cruisin' Legends event, to mark the birthdays of these legendary "cruisin'" cars, and raise money for the Children's Charity Coalition.
          Ford will bring music legends to the event - Wilson Pickett, Bad Company and Morris Day & The Time - along with the Hard Rock Cafe's "50 Years of Rock" Mobile Tour.
          DEARBORN, MI,
June 5, 2004 - Ladies and Gentleman, start your engines. This year marks milestones in two watershed areas of American culture: fast cars and great music. And Ford's "cruisin' legends" are at the heart of both.
          This year marks the 40th anniversary of America's quintessential muscle car, the Ford Mustang, the 50th anniversary of America's prototypical
"cruisin'" car, the Ford Thunderbird, and the 50th anniversary of rock 'n' roll music - commemorated by the recording of Elvis Presley's "That's All Right" at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee on July 5, 1954.
          The natural connection between these milestones has inspired Ford Motor
Company to create an event celebrating the cultural birthdays, and will help raise money for the Children's Charity Coalition at the same time. The event is called Ford Cruisin' Legends and will take place on August 20-21 in
Birmingham, Michigan as part of the annual Woodward Dream Cruise.
          On August 20th Ford will bring music legends to the event - including Wilson Pickett, Bad Company and Morris Day & The Time - along with the Hard Rock Cafe's "50 Years of Rock" Mobile Tour, to help raise money for the
Children's Charity Coalition.
          From the very beginning, muscle cars and music were tied together; an
entire generation grew up with rock and roll on the radio, and a hot car in the driveway. "Cruisin' legends like the Ford Mustang and Ford Thunderbird, and great rock tunes simply grew up together, they inspired one another and are part of the same American cultural experience," said Jim O'Connor, group vice president, North America Marketing, Sales & Service. "The Ford Cruisin' Legends event is aimed at celebrating that connection. And what better place to do it than the country's largest one-day automotive
enthusiast event, the Woodward Dream Cruise?"
          Ford's History in Rock The list of popular songs referencing Ford vehicles goes back to 1906, with Out in an Automobile, by Collins and Harlan. When the first Ford Mustang rolled off the assembly line in 1964, an American icon was born. The Mustang has been inspiring rockers ever since - ranging from Wilson
Pickett's Mustang Sally, to the contemporary Sheryl Crow song Steve
McQueen, with McQueen's Mustang Bullitt at the center of the song and the
music video. The same is true for the Ford Thunderbird, which inspired a wide range of bands to sing tribute to the car - ranging from the Beach Boys to Quiet Riot, from ZZ Top to the Troggs, from Jo Dee Messina to Booker T. Washington White.
          Few companies have produced more products worthy of raising
America to song. "Almost everyone's life has been intertwined in some way with a Ford
legend: owning a great car, riding in a friend's, singing about one of our great nameplates or seeing Ford vehicles on the silver screen. Ford is a thread in the fabric of our culture," said O'Connor.
          Rock Legends, Cruisin' Legends
The lineup of automotive "cruisin' legends" will be matched in kind to the
lineup of rock 'n' roll legends Ford is bringing to the event.
          "We had to have Wilson Pickett to help celebrate the legacy of Mustang,"
said O'Connor. "Overall, we have bands that represent something for everyone. Wilson Pickett will meet the needs of those who crave the Motown sound, Bad Company will meet the needs of those who are classic rock fans, and Morris Day & The Time will meet the needs of those who love to dance."
          The bands will play as part of Ford's Charity Preview on Friday, August 20th from
6 - 11 p.m. on the main stage in Downtown Birmingham, next to Hard Rock Cafe's "50 Years of Rock" Mobile Tour. The Hard Rock Cafe mobile exhibit will take fans through a journey, combining a retrospective look at rock 'n' roll with the Hard Rock experience - complete with legendary pieces of memorabilia from the past several decades of rock.
          "The Ford Mustang, Thunderbird and rock 'n' roll music have made a tremendous impact on American culture," said Brian Siemienas, director of marketing, Hard Rock Cafe. "We are thrilled to be able to bring our multi-city mobile tour, highlighting the history of rock 'n' roll, to Ford Cruisin' Legends."
          For the Charity Preview ticket information or to order tickets, please call 248-644-5832. Tickets are $175, and Ford will donate the net proceeds from
the Friday celebration to the Children's Charity Coalition.

VIP Tour

          Holders of the Ford Cruisin' Legends Charity Event Tickets will be allowed the rare opportunity for a VIP tour of the Saleen Special Vehicles (SSV)
facility located in
Troy, Michigan. This special VIP Tour will provide the attendee the opportunity to view the facility where the preliminary assembly of the 2005 Ford GT begins. The tour will be 45 minutes in duration and will show a behind the scenes look on how the vehicle's
assembly begins. Each ticket will allow for one individual's admission for one time only. No photography will be allowed.
          First-Time Concour Event For the first time, Ford will host a Ford Cruisin' Legends Concour Contest, with Ford's Director of North American Design, Peter Horbury as one of the judges. Vehicles will compete on criteria of design, restoration, executive and showmanship. Winners will be awarded a unique trophy, honoring the achievements of the vehicles. For additional information about the contest, send an email to: the concourse will take place on Saturday, August 21 at

CVMC Cruise In At Hooter’s Of Chester – May 30th! Of course it was an overcast day but we still had a decent turnout. We had about 15 Mustang’s.



          Oh yeah the sights were great as usual at Hooter’s. We may have even recruited a few new members.

          As always I would like to thank Mike Cole for setting this Cruise In up and to everyone who came out. I hope we have another one there soon (hint, hint).

          Be sure to check the rest of the pictures out on our website.

June 4th - MCA’s 2004 Great American Pony Drive II!  Yes Virginia, the Great American Pony Drive II invaded Richmond on Friday June 4th at the Science Museum of Virginia.



         Of course it rained but that didn’t stop those Pony Drive troopers. These guys and gals have been from South Florida to California to Michigan to New York and finally to here Richmond, Va. They have seen every kind of weather except for a tornado or a hurricane.

          The Pony Drive has been featured in magazines and on television. They also had a couple of people from Australia. We unfortunately didn’t get to see the whole group because a few of them went to Carlisle, PA for the All Ford Show. I hear they have a heck of a show and the best in vendors.

          Considering the weather we had a really good turnout. Victory 7 was well represented and CVMC members came out as well even in the rain. I think we had about 30 Mustang’s & Cougar’s all told. Famous Dave’s did a great job providing the BBQ and all the fixin’s and of course the Science Museum of Virginia did a great job with the set up in the Atrium and for allowing us to host the Pony Drive.

          I would like to thank everyone who participated and help with this event. I would like to especially thank George Bobrovsky for organizing the whole event and for arranging the Dash Plaques for the Pony Drive.

          Be sure to check the rest of the pictures out on our website.

CVMC Invades The 22nd Gate City Triad Mustang Show – June 12th! Five club members attended the 22nd Annual Show hosted by the Gate City Triad Mustang Club in Burlington, NC.


          We met after work on Friday and headed south toward
North Carolina. The convoy consisted of Rusty Wiseman, Tony Hall, Mike Cole and Michelle Meyer, Steve Coleman and his daughter, Cori and Ted and Cathy Roberson. All late models on this trip, I might add. Where were the early models?
          We stopped in
Henderson, NC for a meal and when we got back on the road, the bottom fell out. It was monsoon rain and wind. And we were treated to the most spectacular lightning show I have seen in a long time. We will let Mike Cole talk about that!

          We arrived in Burlington and checked in the motel. We all settled in and I think most of us resisted the temptations of the dance club located in the motel called Club Kryptonite!!! Most of us did anyway.
          The next morning, after a quick car wash in the light mist, we headed for the show. The show was located at the local mall with plenty of room. I believe the number of entrants was around 100 or so. The weather probably kept some at home. As it turned out, it never rained and we saw a little bit of sun during the day.
          CVMC made a good showing as everyone of us grabbed a first place for our cars. However, we hope there isn’t a Tom Hall still looking for his award! Right Tony? And how about Steve, he has to be the most versatile member of the club. He can park cars, serve food and defend his fellow club members.



          After a meal and a stop a JR’s, we headed home. Along the way, Tony decided we were going too slowly so he took the lead. It was great until a rouge Escort almost gave him and the rest of us a heart attack. Funny thing about a car sitting in the crossover, you immediately think it’s a cop and react accordingly.
          Congratulations to everyone that made the road trip. The Gate City Triad Club appreciated our attendance and we should be seeing some of them at our show later this year. Make plans to join the next little trip like this; you’re missing a lot of fun!!

          Be sure to check the rest of the pictures out on our website.

CVMC Cruise In At Famous Dave’s At Virginia Center Commons – June 13th! We had a great turnout for this Cruise In. The day was kind of overcast but not too bad. We had about 32 Mustangs show up, which was fantastic. On top of that was a bunch of 1st generation Mustangs also.



          We had folks who haven’t been to these Cruise In events in a long time and we had some new faces also. Victory 7 came out in force. It’s always good to see them.

          The food at Famous Dave’s was excellent as usual and the service was friendly and good also.

          It was great to see many CVMC members participate in this Cruise In. I hope to see this great trend continue with future Cruise In’s.

          Be sure to check the rest of the pictures out on our website.

3rd Annual Bullitt Nationals & Fun Ford Weekend – June 25th, 26th & 27th! As was stated in a previous Newsletter CVMC was asked to help judge the “3rd Annual Bullitt Nationals” this year. Jimmy Ray of IMBOC came to our May meeting and asked that we help out with their show being held at Virginia Motorsports Park with Fun Ford Weekend.

          Five CVMC members helped with the judging and one Victory 7 member. For CVMC they were Larry Nobel, Rusty Wiseman, Mike Cole, Michelle Meyer and Tony Hall. Kendell Turner represented Victory 7.

          The day started off very iffy with the rain in the morning but by 12:30pm the rain had stopped and the sun started to come out.

          When judging time came we had 6 people working on each car and we split the car into three sections and two people each took a section. We were able to judge 36 Bullitts in two hours. Everything went smooth and we have not heard any complaining yet (big grin).

          CVMC had two members in the 3rd Bullitt Nationals. They were Peter Marshall and Tony Donatella.

          CVMC had three members in the Fun Ford Show. They were Mike Cole & Michelle Meyer, Rusty Wiseman and Mike Young.

          I’m not sure how the awards turned out so you will just have to ask those who participated. I hope everyone had a great time.

News From MCA


Greetings to one and all!


          Isn’t the car show season the best part of the year?  Well, unless you are working on the planning and delivery of the show, isn't it nice to attend other clubs shows?  Whether it is an MCA National show, or a local clubs "show and shine," we all love showing off the specific lines of our beloved Mustangs!  It is great to finally get that car ready, stroll around, check out the competition (recheck our car again) and then visit the vendors!

          Many clubs team up for shows, get some MCA daily driver rules, modify them as they feel they need them, and let the judging begin.  Contrary to popular belief, judging really is fun to do!  Maybe it is the people that you meet while judging or the stories that car owners can relay to you but either way, it is a great feeling.  How many times do we hear from people visiting your show about "the Mustang I had...back in the early 70's!" or "the first car I ever drove was a Mustang." and the classic of all..."My parents bought me one of those back in '65.  I kept that car for 6 years until the kids started arriving!"  

          Yep, we all have heard great stories and maybe even told a few of our own!  Isn’t that what makes it all worthwhile???


MCA Elections


          This fall (actually starting now) you can start getting geared up for the MCA elections.  I am always proud to see Regional Clubs Directors decide to "toss in their hats" and run for a seat on the Board of Directors.  New "blood" means new ideas and that’s the best way to keep the excitement flowing for MCA!  Very shortly the word will be coming out as to where to send in a biography on yourself of 100 words or less (up from 50 words as was the previous standard). You list you name and city/state, and then put in why you want to be elected, and special accomplishments that you feel matter and frankly anything else that you feel is interesting.  The nominations committee will chop it off at 100 words, so ensure you count it out and get in everything you feel needs to be there!  Anyone who is an MCA member can run for a seat on the board, with the expectation of being assigned to committee's and lots of work from home.  But you know, it is all worth it!


MCA By-Laws


          I do get asked, "hey, what’s the latest status on the bylaws?" and here is where we stand.  Rather than send out over 30 requested changes to everyone to vote on, as was done a few years ago and a few years before that, the bylaws do allow for a total rewrite.  Basically the committee goes over everything with a fine-toothed comb and then submits it to the board with a final recommended package, and then the clubs themselves vote on the final acceptance.

          The bylaws committee was tasked with taking the current bylaws and looking ahead to the future.  They were told update, clear up confusion, make it user friendly and make them reflect what we expect the future to need.  After that is done, the bylaws go to MCA's legal representative who is currently looking for more ways to streamline and simplify while keeping everything all nice and legal.  That is the stage we are at now, hopefully the first round of voting will take place soon, so we can move on and get your approval.  Drop me an e-mail if you would like an idea of some of the things the committee has been involved with!


YOUR Opinions Wanted!


          As MCA moves forward, we never want to be ignorant of the wants and needs of the clubs.  Tell me what concerns you have, what ideas you have and just how you'd like to see MCA shaping itself for the future!  I guarantee that I will provide the MCA Executive committee and copy in the rest of the MCA board with your suggestions.  I will also withhold names if you so desire!  We've gained 2,300 in membership over the past few years and feel we can do much better.  What can we do to help your club?




          Are you getting this e-mail but someone else is your club President or Regional director?  Please send me your updates so I can update the MCA web page.  The more accurate we have that page, the better chance for you to gain membership in your club.


Summer Travels?


          Doing some travel to Nebraska this summer? The Capital city Mustang and Ford Club would love to invite you to their 2nd Annual Mid-West All Ford and MCA Mustang Show on July 10th and 11th.  The show will be located at Speedway Motors; the address is 340 Victory Lane, Lincoln, NE.  Basically, it is just north on Sun Valley Blvd & West O Street. 

Early registration is due by June 30th to receive the discounts and attend hospitality night.  The show registration is available for download in Adobe PDF format at Additional information can be had by contacting Kris Schulz at (402) 499-9504 or via email at or Gary Bouc at (402) 420-7478 or via email at

          Also on Friday night just North of Lincoln in Ceresco, Swanson Ford is hosting their All Ford Show n Shine.  There'll be a parade, the show n shine, a band, and fireworks.  They put on a great fireworks display.

          For information on this, and several other great events this summer, please visit 


Take care!

2004 Vintage Race Schedule


          A couple of CVMC members have requested information on Vintage Races near Richmond.  These are races through out the U.S. on almost every weekend from January to October. The following is a list of races at two tracks that are the closest to Richmond. The two tracks are Virginia International Raceway (VIR) near Danville, Va. and Summit Point Raceway in Summit Point, WV. Both tracks are four hours away.


September 23rd to the 26th Morgan’s at the Point and Annual Blue / Gray Challenge sponsored by The Sports Car Vintage Racing Association (SVRA)


October 14th to the 17th Season Finale at VIR sponsored by SVRA.


          Open practice is usually on Thursday and will be open for new and vintage racecars for testing (vintage race cars to factory prototypes). Friday is practice for vintage cars only. Most of the cars participating in the actual races will usually be there from Friday to Sunday. Practice & qualifying is on Saturday with some endurance races occurring on both Saturday and Sunday. Qualifying is as exciting as the actual race. Sunday is race day with all groups having warm up laps early before going out. All races are started using a pace car like NASCAR with the pace car leading for a lap.

          There are nine to ten groups racing with different classes in each group. I run with groups five and seven. This is the sports racing, prototype and Can-Am groups through 1974.

          If you have any questions please feel free to call me during the day at 804-321-5383.


Happy Cruising!





News From The CCCCVa

By Fred Fann


          Summer's here, the living is easy and even the ozone levels are low. Usually the hot days of summer and late spring mean high ozone levels but not this year. We have had breezes and occasionally rains to keep the ozone levels down to what the EPA says we must have. In fact we haven't had a day out of the "green" level, which is less than 50 PPB. We can continue to hope that the ozone levels stay low so that we do not have to face any changes forced upon us to "clean up the air" and reduce ground level ozone.

          The Commission for Environmental Cooperation was established by the US,

Canada and Mexico under NAFTA. Recently it issued a report saying pollution in the North American continent fell 10% from 1998 to 2001. It acknowledged that coal burning power plants are lagging in improvements that would make the air cleaner - something we all know. Industrial polluters in Texas,

Ohio, Michigan and Ontario province produced 28% of all the continents pollution. Three states and one Canadian province produced nearly a third of North American's pollution.

          A report commissioned by Clear the Air reported that 23,600 Americans a year die a premature death due to power plant pollution. The deaths are from cancers such as lung cancer and heart attacks. The Bush administration has proposed "Clear Skies" in order to reduce power plant pollution but it has stalled in Congress. Another plan to reduce power plant pollution has also stalled in Congress.

          The organization's report came out about the same time another report that found "skies were dramatically bluer and the air was much healthier during the August 2003 blackout that hit the East Coast of the United States". Currently there is much argument on how to tackle the problem of power plant pollution. The Bush administration has been accused of not doing enough by environmentalists. This will continue to be a hot topic as coal-fired power plants are one of the last to make changes in order to improve air quality.

          Gas prices in most of Virginia have dropped a dime a gallon recently. A poll shows that most Americans feel gasoline is priced about 52 cents a gallon too high. The effect of higher gasoline prices is still reaching us. Since just about everything in our country moves by truck the price of just about everything is affected. Inflation went up during May due to the high prices.

          Shell Oil has shut down its Bakersfield, California refinery, which made an $11 million profit in May alone. Shutting down the refinery during the busy summer driving season has triggered investigations into why they would cut production unless it is to keep prices up. Shell is also in trouble in the South where 500 stations sold gasoline that had too much sulfur. The result was gas gauge failure in the cars that used the high sulfur gasoline. Shell is on the hook for thousands of fuel gauge repairs that could cost as much as $600 per vehicle.

          Gas prices will go down when the demand decreases, refinery production increases and the cost of crude drops. Fears of trouble in the Middle East have added about $5 to a barrel of crude.

Minutes of Meeting, June 2, 2004

By Brenda Jones


          Tony called the meeting to order at 7:35 p.m. He asked if we had any visitors. We had 4. They were: Taft Cameron 1993 Coupe, Lee Buckner 1968 fastback and a 1969 fastback, John McGrath 1964 1/2 Convertible.

          Tony asked Karen for the Treasurer's report. We had a beginning balance of $5093.25.

          Don- Judging clinic - late model will be held July 10th (Saturday after the meeting). 10:00 a.m. Coffee and doughnuts will be served.

          George Bobrovsky - Pony Drive - He passed out the dash plaques. They are on schedule and should be here on Friday afternoon. We will be parking on the West side of the Museum- we promised the Museum 100 cars. We are counting on members to bring their cars out also.

          Tony got checks from Bill Johnson and Foster & Miller for trophy classes. Tony said the fee would be reduced to $10.00 for club members to display their cars.

          Paul Oliver - MCA and Virginia Blood Services - MCA new cards will have the Pensacola address on them. Paul also mentioned that we need names on the Virginia Blood Services sign up sheet.  They will be bringing a unit down from Charlottesville and they need to know if it will be cost effective to bring it. 

          Judy and Dave went to Flat Rock Michigan to the MCA board meeting.  They went to the Dearborn plant and saw the last 150 mustangs. The new building where the 2005 mustangs will be made only had Mazda's in it. Production will start in July. They aren't sure if the old building will be torn down or not. The board discussed the 40th anniversary show, and they are setting up committees to correct some of the problems. Nashville wants us back. It was the largest show they have ever had. There will be a 45th celebration. Austin Craig said if they had to put a monetary value on the exposure of the show it would be around5 million.

          Tony talked about the recent shows. On June 26th, the Bullitt Nationals will be at the Virginia Motorsports Park.  They need around 5 people to help. Meet at McDonald’s on Willis road at 8:00 a.m. and they will go on down to Virginia Motorsports Park. Tony said there will be a MCA national on June 11-13 at Biloxi Mississippi; All Ford Nationals will be in Carlisle on June 4,5 & 6.
