Mustang’s 40th Birthday

Nashville, Tennessee

 

 

          The week of our trip to Nashville started as a wash out. It rained for three days and on the morning of April 14th was no different. It was foggy and a Thunder Storm was in the area. It was kind of funny watching it lightning in the fog. We met at the Rest Stop on I-64 just east of the Oilville exit.

 

 

          Kathy McWilliams had been up for 24 hours because she had to go to Georgia the day before to pick up her new trailer. She also learned that she had to stop every 100 miles for Oil and Gas. She was determined to make it to the 40th come Hell or High Water.

          The trip to Nashville was very interesting. We had a Thunder Storm, Fog, Heavy Rain, Cold, Snow, Bright Sunshine and Warm Temperatures all in one day.

          The trip out there went well except for Kathy’s oil problem. We had no breakdowns. As soon as we got to Lebanon, Tenn. We got our Hotel Rooms and was off to find a Car Wash. Luckily there was one no more than a ½ mile down the street.

          We got up bright and early Thursday Morning and off to Nashville Speedway we went. We all arrived and got registered without any problems that I know of.

          They had the Opening Ceremonies about 10am. Charlie Chase was the MC. Ford Motor Company brought many VIP’s to the show like Edsel Ford II, Steve Lyons, Don Frey, Joe Oros, Gale Halderman, Carroll Shelby, John Force, Art Hyde and Hau Thia-Tang. Jack Roush did a Fly By in his P-51 Mustang and of course the Star of the show, The 2005 Mustang was there.

 

 

          Later that night we went to a MCA Cruise In into downtown Nashville. We met at the Two Rivers Baptist Church about two hours before the Cruise In was suppose to start. There was only room for 350 Mustangs to begin with. Well that wasn’t going to fly when you had about 1000 Mustang’s show up. It was a mess at first but once you got going it was a lot of fun. Just imagine a line about 8 miles long full of Mustang’s headed for the historic Part of Nashville. It was a sight to behold. We had people pulling out lawn chairs and watching the parade. We even had people coming out from the bars to hoot and holler at us. When we finally got to Downtown Nashville and got parked (thanks to Steve Coleman) we started to get a good idea of how many Mustang’s were there. They ended up blocking off 9 city blocks and all of those streets were full of Mustang’s!

 

 

          Friday was spent cleaning Mustangs (which was a fulltime job), checking out the show some more and sightseeing. We went out to dinner with Dave Dempster and his wife Adriana. Dave works for SVT Engineering as a Drive-train Engineer. He is also the keeper of the toys (big evil grin). We ate and talked and ate and talked some more. A good time was had by all.

 

 

          Saturday was the big day. We got up bright and early and off to the track we went. It was time to clean up those Mustang’s real good today because it was the day to be judged. Judging the Mustang’s was a real mess. The following won an award Mike Nobel & Pam Doser, Billy & Kim McDaniel, Steve Coleman, Kathy McWilliams, Rusty Wiseman, Ted Roberson and our adopted CVMC Member Randy Odum. Congratulations to all who won and to all who went to the show. There were a lot of tired feet and legs after judging all afternoon. MCA kept telling us they were expecting 80,000 to 100,000 people there over the course of the show. I could have sworn that there were 40,000 to 50,000 people there on Saturday alone. They had 2 Trans Am type races that afternoon. One was a Vintage Trans Am Race and the other was a more modern Trans Am Race. The stands were almost full. Most of us went to eat at Ryan’s Steak House Saturday night that got a little interesting also.

 

 

          On Sunday a few members headed back to Richmond after picking up their awards and the rest of us stayed to watch the burn out contest and the Charlie Daniels Band. Both were a lot of fun. Later we went down to the Opryland Resort. This place is HUGE! And that is putting it mildly.

          We left early on Monday morning and headed back to Richmond. The weather was much better than what we had going out to Nashville. Everyone made it back safe and sound.

          I could have written a lot more about this trip but I was afraid it would make this Newsletter into a Magazine. I think everyone had a great time. The people in and around Nashville were as nice as they could be. The weather was fantastic. The media did a great job covering the 40th Celebration and of course the Mustanger’s were great as usual! I look forward to the 45th Celebration. T o get the best stories you will just have to ask those who went because they can tell it the best.

        Oh yeah, Steve! Where is Larry?

MCA’s 2004 Pony Drive II! I will meet with John Belt from Famous Dave's next week to review location logistics at SMV. Pony Drive Volunteer sign-up sheets will be available for parking cars and leading cars from Charlottesville to SMV,
at the May Club Meeting. Maps to the museum will also be available at the May club meeting. Club members should sign up directly with MCA to participate in the
Richmond to Virginia Beech portion of the Pony Drive.
          Club members are encouraged to display their cars at the
Richmond Pony
Drive
stopover on June 4. Remember folks; your participation in this one evening event is how we, the club, pay the rent for being allowed to use the SMV facility for the monthly meetings. We depend on everyone's participation to pull this event tougher. The more Mustangs we have the better.
          Unfortunately,
Pony Drive sponsorship was turned down by 7 Ford dealers. I am still working on Car Max. The Lead Sales manager is out on LTD. In
all likelihood we will not be offering Dash Plaques to the Pony drive participants. If any one has thoughts on "give-away" sponsorship, give me a call at home the number is 804-794-0350. Thanks in advance for everyone's help.

          Another 1000 CVMC show flyers were ordered from Ben Franklin printing, processed and were ready for pickup within 8 hours. That was super fast customer service by Ben Franklin printers.  Thanks go to Bob Overbey and his printers. The flyers were for the 40th Mustang Anniversary celebration in Nashville last month.  I attached many of these flyers to cars in the parking lots of the Gaylord Opryland hotel with Virginia, W. Virginia, and Maryland license plates.  Show flyers are available for all club members to use when they participate in Car Shows and Cruise Ins. 

          Letters are going out to many Mustang parts suppliers and business’ requesting advertising, door prizes/gift certificates, goodie bag items, & trophy sponsorship.

          I picked up the check from Universal Ford as one of our major sponsors along with other checks and gave them to the Treasurer.

Rick’s Tip’s

By Rick Nochta

 

“Detailing Your Mustang”

 

          Over Thanksgiving and Christmas I was able to have some time to go through all my “Mustang Monthly Magazines” with the earliest being 1987. I was searching through these to find as many articles as I could dealing with detailing the engine compartment, the underside including suspension, running gear and trunk area. I found these articles covered 1964 ½ to 1973 with most of the emphasis on 1968 to 1970 Mustangs. Unfortunately most of the articles covered Hi-Po’s, Cobra Jets and Boss’s.

          To research other engine optioned cars required looking at pictures of featured cars. Looking through over 250 magazines produced several good pictures of engine, interior and trunk shots and a couple of pictures of the underside. From what I saw you could get enough information to restore a car correctly.

          You can also contact the CVMC Judges and technical advisors to get specific questions answered. I have always said there is a wealth of knowledge in the club. This is your best source for information.

          The Mustang Club Of America (MCA) has judges who are always polite and helpful. As one judge put it “that’s what I am here for”.

          On one occasion I contacted MCA in 1988 to get the proper dimensions on 1971 to 1973 Mustang Mach 1 hood stripes. Back then even finding someone who knew was a weight off my shoulders. After the MCA Head Judge spent several minutes giving me exact dimensions including the curves near the scoops I realized I had not asked him how he knew. After all just because he sounded like he knew didn’t mean he knew. I thanked him for taking so much of his time and offered to send him some money. He refused, saying it was his part in supporting the club. Good answer I thought. But wait, how did he really know? So, I asked how did you find such detailed measurements? Well, I have an original paint Mustang Mach 1 with original factory painted stripes sitting in the garage in front of me he replied!

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

 

Happy Cruising!!!

News From The CCCCVa

By Fred Fann

 

          The governor has signed SB 204 and it will become the law of the state on July 1st. Time to celebrate! It was a lot of hard work done by a lot of car hobbyists and legislators to get this measure through and into law. The councils are working on how we should thank those members of the General Assembly that helped us. A BIG thanks to all of you who contacted members of the General Assembly and the Governor.

          Gas prices are going up and up. This has caused more of the hybrid gas/electric cars to be bought. While California (as you’d expect) is leading the nation in hybrid vehicle registrations but who is number two? Yes, Virginia is right behind the land of fruits and nuts in hybrid vehicle registrations. Hybrid registrations are up 25.8% in the last year. If gas prices don’t come down more hybrids will be on the roads.

          We knew it was coming. The EPA’s new stricter rules for ozone are here and just about every nook and cranny of the state is in violation. Even some areas with low populations are in violation. The EPA says these new rules are to insure the health of people with lung/breathing problems.

          What’s the state going to do to meet these new guidelines?  Well they are ruling out stationary emissions testing in the Richmond area as “burdensome” for citizens. What they mean is that these new regulations are for REAL and they REALLY HAVE to clean up the air so they can’t be screwing around with stuff like emissions testing that does not improve air quality. For years DEQ has supervised testing in Northern Virginia and the result has been low failure rates and the area has gotten even more polluted. So much for cleaning up the air with auto emissions testing.

          But don’t think are cars are going to escape the ozone crack down. The DEQ is “considering” remote emissions testing. I’ll go further - they have already field-tested the equipment so they’re going to use it. Delegate Joe May sponsored the bill that became law and allows for the remote testing. He is running for lieutenant governor and has said he is not ruling out running for governor in 5 years. Remote emissions’ testing isn’t good news for car hobbyists. Every vehicle on the road is checked if it passes through the equipment. Although DEQ says it won’t do anything to antique vehicles that remains to be seen. An area that gets desperate to meet the new ozone standards may use any means to attempt to clean the air.

          The DEQ is going to go after power plants and other stationary polluters. Because, they ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO CLEAN UP THE AIR. We will have to wait to see what stationary polluters will be required to do but we already know it will cost money and those costs will be passed along to us.

          The local areas that do not meet the new standards are: Richmond City, Hopewell City, Petersburg City, Colonial Heights City, Henrico County, Hanover County, Chesterfield County, Charles City County, Prince George County. Other areas that do not meet the standards are Roanoke and surrounding areas, Fredericksburg and areas, Winchester and areas, Shenandoah Park, Hampton Roads, Northern Virginia.
