Mustangs In The Gardens – June 5th! No rain…not bad considering the last two times we tried to show the Mustangs off in the Gardens! If you weren’t there for the first one what can I say…it was Fun but wet…very wet…flood like wet…but I digress.

           So here I am running late again (please no comments…yes that means you!) and when I pull into the gardens I see 1 Mustang and a Cougar in a tree…I mean under a tree.



Wow…so smart park under the shade of the tree…still not sure why I never moved my car…there I go again off tangent.

          Well we started off a little slow but as the day went on we ended up with 13 Mustangs and a Cougar, pretty good turn out…so the old saying is true…3rd time is the charm. We had a lot of fun and good conversation and the rain stayed away until I was on the way home (and that sprinkle was a lot better than the Monsoon we got the first year). And we had a lot of people come out and look at the cars.  I hope we helped out the Food Bank and hope we can do it again next year.



          Thank you to the Hopewell Heritage Gardens and Rick for all the hospitality…it was well worth the trip out!!

CVMC Highway Trash Pickup – June 11th!  A big thanks to everyone who came out to help do our Civic Duty with our Adopt-A-Highway program on Otterdale Road.

          The grass and weeds were rather high this time so I am sure we didn’t see most of the trash that was there, but we did pick up what we saw and then we were off to Pizza Hut to chow down!

          Our next Adopt-A-Highway day will be in early October. We hope to see many of you then!

Virginia MCA License Plate! The Roanoke Valley Mustang Club (RVMC) was able to get a Special License Plate passed in the Virginia General Assembly using the MCA Logo. The following is what was sent to me…


          Great news!! The Virginia General Assembly has approved the MCA plate. The plate will have the Mustang Club of America logo and will say Mustang Club of America. It will probably look similar in layout to the Harley Owners Group plate; check the link below to see what it looks like.

          You DO NOT have to be an MCA national member to participate in the plate (though, MCA membership is encouraged by our club). We now must have 350 pre-paid orders within 180 days (6 months) before the plates can be made. If we are unable to reach the 350 plates required, you will get your check back! Roanoke Valley Mustang Club as the sponsor must submit all forms throughout the state. We are limited to 6 characters for specialty plates. Please check out the Virginia DMV website below to see which 6-character combinations that you are interested in are available if you do not have already 6 characters or less. You can check your combos using any specialized plate. The website will tell you if that combo is available or not. You can request up to three choices. Keep in mind it will be no problem to update your current vanity plate if you have 6 characters or less. You also do not need to personalize it, and can order just a standard MCA plate with a number on it.

          Out-of-state members can participate by ordering what is called a souvenir plate. This plate is for display only and not for use on a motor vehicle. Only a single plate is issued. The form needed is VSA 10, available from the DMV website below.

You must specify on the form which type of plate you want, and where it says “check type of plate” indicate “other” and write in Mustang Club of America. Please mail your completed application and check to...


Suzanne Beels

500 Daytona Drive

Hardy, VA 24101


I can also be reached at 540-309-8980


          I will have copies of the form that you have to fill out at our April Meeting.

News From The Blue Oval


What’s Next From Team Mustang?


          Despite the possibility that Ford is poised sell 200,000 Mustangs in 2005, Ford plans to keep the Mustang fresh with new models. In addition to the 2007 Shelby GT500 and the recently announced 2006 V6 Pony Edition sources on Team Mustang told BlueOvalNews that they will introduce another specialty model.

          Move over Bullitt, Mach according to a member of Team Mustang, it didn't take Ford long to decide on the next specialty Mustang to succeed the Bullitt and Mach1. No, it won't be a GT350 or a Boss - but it will be a Mustang nameplate from the late 1960s.

          The next specialty Mustang will flash back to 1968 and California. If you guessed the Ford Mustang California Special, then you hit the nail square on the head.

News From The CCCCVa

By Fred Fann


          You may have heard about DMV contacting the owners of Cobras. These Cobras are the AC Cobras made famous in the 60’s by Carol Shelby. About 90 owners of Cobras have been sent letters from DMV. The letters were intended to go to the owners of kit car Cobras but I know of at least one original Cobra whose owner got a letter. DMV wanted to find out about the cars being titled as 65’s or 66’s when the cars were not built in those years. DMV also wanted to check on the engine year to satisfy DEQ.  Not only was DMV looking at how the vehicles were titled but the agency wanted to make sure no stolen parts were used in the construction.

          Why did DMV decide to do this? That’s a very good question and the only answer I have heard is that most think someone with some real clout complained to DMV about the kit cars being titled as cars older than what they really are so that owners can get the benefits of having a car registered as an antique when in reality the car is not an antique. DEQ wants these cars to have emissions equipment on the engine for the engine’s year. Numbers stamped or cast into the engine block can be used to determine the year of manufacture. DMV most likely wanted to see if the cars were built with stolen parts since many companies selling Cobra kits say all you need is a wreaked late model Mustang as a donor for many parts. In fact the kits are built to use Mustang drive train and suspension parts.

          Where all this going is the big question. A source at DMV says they are only interested in the Cobra kit cars.  However this situation has caused a lot of stress with people who have different year engines in their cars and those who have built other kit cars.  The big three US automakers all offer crate motors and some of them will not pass 2005 emissions since they are meant to run with carburetors. So all of this could become a very big deal.

          The Cobra owners want to be able to build a fresh car and get it titled as an original and enjoy the benefits of owning an antique. That is not going to happen. State law says a car must be at least 25 years old to be registered as an antique and has no provision for replicas or kit cars.

          A federal appeals court has upheld that power plants can continue and even increase pollutants sent into the air after the plants have been modernized. This is a victory for the Bush administration, as they wanted plants to be able to replace aging equipment without having to decrease pollution. It is not a victory for car hobbyists - if stationary sources increase pollution then mobile sources with have to decrease pollution.

          Increasing the fuel economy of vehicles was killed in Congress. But Congress is still working on an energy bill. Members want more alcohol (ethanol) put in gasoline. If this bill becomes law the production of ethanol for use in gasoline would double. The bill also encourages wind power and fuel made from biology sources. You may recall that President Bush visited a bio-fuel plant in Virginia recently.

          The energy bill would cost $16 billion or about three times as much as the Bush administration wanted to spend. Congress takes a back seat to no one in spending.


CVMC Guess the plate



          The object of this game is to guess which CVMC member the license plate belongs to.

  1. What was the finial year the graphic equalizer offered?



Rick’s Tip’s


1965 to 1966 Reproduction Fastback Trunk Lids

          Well the Taiwanese have done it again with sheet metal. The trunk lids available for the 1965 to 1966 Mustang Fastbacks are a pure nightmare. The problems with these are numerous. The panel I received looked good when removed from the box. However further inspection revealed the following problems; shallow dents in the panel, incorrect alignment to the quarter panels, improper opening for the lock, and improper welding of the trunk lid to the trunk shell.

          The dents on the exterior top of the trunk lid were fairly easy to repair. The difficult part was welding the trunk skin to the shell. This is tricky due to heat warping of the metal. Also the trunk does not align well to the quarter panels and the upper rear panel (the panel in between the back glass and the trunk lid). Extensive shaping of the trunk is needed to get that show look.

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


Happy Cruising
