CVMC Display @ The Science Museum of Virginia – July 2nd! CVMC had a fantastic Display at The Science Museum of Virginia! The Victory 7 Mustang Club came out in force to help with our display along with some other Area Cruisers.



          Through out the day we had over 60 Cars on display. Everyone was in their patriotic mode for the 4th of July Weekend.



          You really could not have asked for a better day. It was mostly cloudy which kept the heat down a lot.

          I would like to thank George Bobrovsky for setting up the display. I hope that the SMV was happy! And a BIG THANKS to everyone who came out to support CVMC!

CVMC In DC Independence Day National Parade, Washington, D.C. - July 4th! The following club members participated in a wonderful parade on July 4th down Constitution Ave! Kathy McWilliams, Dave Lythgoe, Rusty Wiseman, Betty Wiseman, Cynthia & Ben Brown, Greer & Bonnie Fullerton, John Mitchell & family, Glen Motto, Tony Daniels & family, Shawn Godfrey & family, Ronald & Paula Peterson.



          We had terrific weather and extremely good luck with the traffic going in and coming out of DC.  No breakdowns of any kind, hmmm, no blown tires either, right Greer?  We didn’t have the DC navigational experience from Dave & Judy Dickey this time so yours truly had the other 8 cars a bit off course every now and then.  Queue the two-way radio, “Did anyone see the exit for the 14th Street Bridge”?  Uh, there isn’t a sign!  I appreciated everyone’s patience, thank you!  We arrived in plenty of time to decorate our cars, see the floats go up, and watch the other parade elements form up around us.  It wasn’t until just before our turn to begin moving up to start the parade that I realized we would follow a great sounding high school band!  The real parade experience…follows an award-winning band!  So many people to wave at and say “Happy Fourth”!  Wow! I don’t think we made national TV but all had loads of fun!  Going home, most of us stopped at Ruby Tuesday’s for a late lunch and received great service unlike Memorial Day.



          Next year, we’ll have even more cars come out, right?

CVMC Display at Union Bank and Trust-Sycamore Square – July 16th! We had a hot day for some hot mustangs.  We had 3 ponies to show up. They were a red 2005 GT, a 1967 Blue Convertible, and a 1967 Springtime Yellow Coupe. The radio station was good but didn't stay long. The FREE food was great. Everybody at the bank and the spectators had a good time. The VFW group dedicated the bank's flagpole and we said the Pledge of Allegiance after the flag was raised. This was something different since they can't say the pledge in school anymore. We will be getting a check for a trophy class sponsorship from the bank. It was a very worthwhile day. 


CVMC Dyno Day @ Performance Autosports – August 13th! Yes, CVMC will be having another Dyno Day at Performance Autosports on August 13th. We will meet at PAS at 9am.

          So bring those Ponies’s on out and see how many horses’s you have. We would like to see all generations of Mustang’s there from the 1st Generation to the 5th Generation. PAS will charge the club rate of 3 pulls for $65.00.

          Hope to see you there it will be a blast!

News From The Blue Oval



New for the 2006 Mustang


          "Pony Package" offers Mustang V-6 customers a GT-inspired suspension with larger wheels and tires, ABS and traction control, custom grille with fog lamps and Pony Emblems.

          Mustang GT now available with four distinct wheel- and -tire combinations, including two all-new 18-inch wheels and tires complemented by unique suspension tuning.

          Two new colors include Vista Blue Clearcoat Metallic and Tungsten Grey Clearcoat Metallic, first shown on the 2004 NAIAS Mustang show car

Later in the model year, an additional, darker aluminum interior upgrade option will become available.




          Since its dramatic 1964 introduction, Ford Mustang has been the icon of American performance with its bold style, brawny engine and rear-wheel-drive excitement, earning its place as the top-selling sports car for 19 years straight. For 2006, Ford is building on the clean-sheet 2005 design by offering a V-6 "Pony Package," 18-inch wheels on GT models, a pair of new colors and , later in the model year, a darker aluminum interior upgrade option.

          Since its all-new 2005 redesign, Mustang has won dozens of accolades including "Most Significant Vehicle" from, "Official Car of Summer" from Outside magazine as well as listing in AutoWeek's top 10 cars and Ward's Auto World's 10 best engines.

          Mustang is one of the greatest automotive sales success stories of all time. Nearly one out of every two sports cars sold in America this year has been a Mustang. The car garnered more than two times as many sales as its closest competitor in the small specialty segment, which features sports coupes such as the Pontiac GTO, Nissan 350Z, Chrysler Sebring and Hyundai Tiburon. It's also America 's best-selling convertible.

          For 2006, Ford Mustang will offer customers more customization potential with the all-new "Pony Package," providing Mustang V-6 customers a GT-inspired suspension with larger wheels and tires, custom grille with fog lamps and other enhancements.

          Mustang GT customers can now also choose between four different wheel and tire packages, including two new 18-inch wheels and tires complemented by unique suspension tuning. In addition, two new Mustang colors – Vista Blue Clearcoat Metallic and Tungsten Grey Clearcoat Metallic – join the color palette for 2006.

          Mustang comes in Standard, Deluxe and Premium packages (Deluxe and Premium only for GT models) in a choice of coupe or convertible with a V-6 or V-8 engine mated to a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission. It is built in Flat Rock, Mich.


Design and Equipment


          Mustang is pure American muscle. The signature long hood and short rear deck capitalize on 40 years of history, as do classic design cues that have defined Mustangs since the 1960s: C-scoops in the sides, three-element taillamps and a galloping horse badge in the center of the grille. The Mustang's menacing shark-like nose imparts an attitude not seen since the 1967 model, while jeweled, round headlamps in trapezoidal housings are part of its striking new modern architecture. The car's aggressive rake gives the design visual motion while the short overhangs anchor it visually and physically to the road.

          The new-for-2006 V-6 "Pony Package" includes a customized grille with GT-style round fog lamps and a chrome bezel or "corral" around the traditional Mustang prancing horse. Backing up this visual upgrade is a GT-inspired suspension featuring a larger front stabilizer bar, the addition of a rear stabilizer bar and P235/55ZR17 tires on painted cast-aluminum wheels. With bright machined rims and unique tri-bar Pony center caps, these are the largest wheels and tires ever fitted to a V-6 Mustang.

          Further touches include Pony front fender badges, lower door tape stripe, carpeted front floor mats with special brushed chrome "Mustang" logos and a rear spoiler. Four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock braking system (ABS) and traction control are also part of the package.

          In the 2006 model year, Mustang GT also will have two new 18-inch wheel and tire combinations – the largest tires ever fitted to a production V-8 Mustang since the 2000 SVT Cobra R model – and unique suspension tuning calibrated to the larger treads. Mustang GT customers will be able to choose from four wheel- and -tire combinations.

          Inside, the industry-first, color-configurable instrument panel offers the ultimate in personalization. Mustang owners can mix and match lighting at the touch of a button to create more than 125 different color backgrounds to suit their personality, mood, outfit or whim.

          Modern touches mix with Mustang history and heritage. Chrome-ringed air vents are aligned vertically across the dash, precisely in line with the gauges, and the steering wheel has three spokes with a center hub marked by the horse and tricolor bars logo, echoing the design of the 1967 Mustang.

          Numerous standard features include one-touch up/down power windows, power mirrors, keyless entry and power locks, a heated rear window, interval wipers, air conditioning, speed control and CD player.


Powertrain and Chassis


          Muscular engines infuse Mustang with tire-smoking performance. The 4.6-liter aluminum V-8 has three-valve heads and cranks out 300 horsepower. That's more than 50 percent more power than the small-block 289-cubic-inch V-8 found in the classic 1964 model.

          The standard engine, a 60-degree 4.0-liter SOHC V-6, produces 210 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque.

          Five-speed manual transmissions are standard. The V-8 powered GT is equipped with a rugged Tremec 3650 gearbox, while V-6 uses the proven Tremec T-5. Since 2005, Mustang has been available with a five-speed automatic which provides a unique combination of off-the-line jump and good highway fuel economy.

          At the front suspension, MacPherson struts with reverse "L" lower control arms deliver both comfort and control. The three-link rear suspension has a lightweight, tubular Panhard rod that provides precise control of the rear axle. This technology stabilizes the rear axle as the wheels move, particularly during hard cornering.

          The standard four-wheel disc brakes have the biggest rotors and stiffest calipers ever fitted to a mainstream Mustang. Twin-piston aluminum calipers clamp down on 12.4-inch ventilated front brake discs on GT models.

          In the rear, the brake rotors are 11.8 inches in diameter – more than 12 percent larger than on the 2004 model.

          A four-channel anti-lock braking system with traction control is available for a greater degree of brake control. It uses electronic sensors to constantly monitor road conditions and feed the information to a dedicated control computer capable of determining, within milliseconds, whether the vehicle is on dry pavement or negotiating a slippery surface. When traction control isn't desired, drivers can deactivate the system with a simple button on the instrument panel.


Safety and Security


          With power comes responsibility. The 2006 Mustang helps occupants stay safe.

          Ford's Personal Safety System™, a comprehensive safety technology package, is standard. The system provides increased protection in frontal crashes by analyzing crash factors and determining the proper response within milliseconds. It uses dual-stage driver and front-passenger air bags – capable of deploying at full or partial power – safety belt pretensioners and energy management retractors.

News From The CCCCVa

By Fred Fann


          Well we have both a governor and a president that can’t seem to be able to ride bicycles without having accidents. We can be thankful that despite more drivers and more vehicles on the roads the number of accidents, injuries and deaths are going down. In fact Virginia has almost 100 fewer deaths from traffic accidents than this time last year. Perhaps the gov and the president should go to driving school.

          Last month I wrote about the energy bill before Congress. Both houses have agreed to a bill and they have removed all liability protection for the makers of MTBE. This was the big sticking point as some in Congress wanted to saddle the MTBE clean up with we taxpayers. MTBE, a gasoline additive that was supposed to help clean the air, has poisoned ground water in many states. Some people have reported health problems associated with exposure to MTBE. More than 150 lawsuits have been filed to try and force the oil companies to clean up the MTBE mess. Of course the oil companies will pass those costs on to us at the pump - so either way we lose.

          Congress has also come up with a measure to make driver licenses more secure. The states are looking at this as an un-funded mandate. They don’t have the estimated $900 million it will take to put this into practice. The Virginia DMV expects the cost of a license to triple and for there to be long lines due to all the paperwork needed to process a license. A couple of states say they are not going to participate due to the costs. The problem is that unless you have a federal approved license by mid-2008 you won’t be able to get on a place. The airlines are forced by law to only accept the new licenses for identification.

          The Richmond newspaper jumped the gun on an article about Richmond air quality. The article bragged about how the air has been fairly clean for the last couple of years. Now with the heat wave that may change. At least the article does state that ozone and air quality are directly related to the weather. It’s just too bad the EPA hasn’t realized this. If we have several bad ozone days the EPA has said they will force the Richmond area to do automobile emissions testing. Why punish people because the weather is hot and stagnant for a few days?

          I’m sure you’ve heard about the bill Senator George Allen is sponsoring about anti-freeze. His bill, if it becomes law, would force anti-freeze makers to add a bitter agent to the anti-freeze. Anti-freeze tastes very sweet and thousands of dogs, cats and kids have become ill or died after drinking it. Prestone, one of the leading makers of anti-freeze, told members of the senate that it would cost three cents a gallon to add the bitter agent. So if it only costs three cents a gallon why haven’t they already added it? Why do they have to wait for an act of Congress to make them save the lives of thousands of pets and children? And if Allen’s bill becomes law I predict two things will happen. One, the price of anti-freeze will increase by a lot more than three cents a gallon. Two, we will have to suffer with anti-freeze ads that state how concerned they are with our pets and children and that is the reason they’ve come out with this new, improved and safer anti-freeze.

Minutes of Meeting,

July 6, 2005

By Brenda Jones


          Tony called the meeting to order at 7:40 p.m. He asked if we had any visitors. We had 6. They were: Tony and Debbie Hornic (67 Conv.), Michael Murphy (05 GT), Bob Proceda (03 GT), Janet and Dave Armstrong (05 GT).

Tony read the Treasurer's report due to Karen being absent.  Paul Oliver made the motion to accept the report, Larry Noble seconded.  The vote was unanimous. 

          Rusty told us about the 4th of July parade in Washington D. C. He said they left way too early, got there on time and then waited for 2 hours for the parade to start. We had 9 cars in the parade. The traffic wasn't bad going or coming home. Security was tight. Rick Jones gave a report on the display at the Hopewell Gardens. We had 13-14 cars to show up.  Everyone enjoyed the pizza and cake.  We had an ice cream truck to go by three times before we finally were able to flag him down. It didn't rain this time. A good time was had by all.

          Tony told us about the cruise in to Famous Dave’s. 40 cars showed up, ours plus Victory 7’s. We almost took up the entire parking lot. We had a fair amount of spectators. We are having another Cruise In this Sunday, July 10th, at Market Café on Nuckols Road. It will be from 12-4. 

          G Force Go Karts had a good group. We had some new people to try their hand at racing.

          Rick Nochta had a judging clinic.  Tony, Rusty, Gordon Martin, Dave Dickey and Rick were at the clinic.  They discussed if it rains on the rain date as well as the original date, they will be judging the cars with their hoods and trunks shut, and check the interior and take in consideration the weather for the undercarriage. They discussed the classes. They decided to let the owners choose if they want to be in Modified or not. We will be giving out trophies for Best of Show Ford, Best of Show Late Model, Best of Show Early Model, and Best of Show Modified. We will be using the same people to judge these classes as last year. Dave Dickey wants us to have a National show. We need a clinic to show people how to judge MCA rules. The next clinic will be July 16th at Gordon Martin's house. It will also be a detailing clinic. We have approached other clubs to judge at the show. August 20th will be the last clinic. This will be a mandatory clinic for anyone who is judging at the show.

          George Bobrovsky gave his report on the display at the Science Museum. We had 60 cars to show up and we only promised them 40. The day went really well. 

          We had a speaker to talk about powder coating of car parts as well as other items. His shop is in Providence Forge near Colonial Downs.

          Dave Dickey announced the next show meeting. August 8, 2005 at Joe’s Inn in Mechanicsville at 7:00. Check with Dave or Tony for directions and whether or not you are coming. Gordon Martin and Dave talked to Virginia Center Commons and got everything for the show except the extra space near Dillard's. Tony has shortened the space to 11 feet. We gained some space by doing this. There will be space to unload a car but you will have to park the trailers on the perimeter road (telegraph).   We will have access after 9:00 on Thursday night. We can rope off the area. Amy Blumenthal will be handling the vendors. Steve Coleman has 4 volunteers to help him park the cars; Richard Jones will be handling the trailers.

          Judy Weidman - new shirt- Gordon Martin got the shirts - We have a patch to be ironed on, cost is $15.00.  We still have some old show shirts available at $10.00 each.  Judy has the new jackets.




          We got a note from the Bon Air Committee for the parade thanking us for our participation this year. They would like us to let them know if we want to participate next year.

          Saturday, 9th of July - Performance Auto Sport 9-5, July 16th - Harrison Park - Gates open at 9:00 Charles City Wayside Road. Off of Rt. 607 near Benjamin Harrison Bridge. 

          Steve Coleman won the 50/50 of $33.00. He got gas money. Members get rewards by coming to the meetings. 

Tony adjourned the meeting at 8:55.
