Superformance Spring Snake Roundup 2005! My wife Karla and I attended the Superformance Spring Snake Roundup 2005 (SSR IV) in Branson Missouri on April 23-26. SSR is an annual event open to all Superformance AC Cobra owners. 41 cars attended the rally with a value in excess of $2.3M. FYI - Superformance is a manufacturer
of AC Cobra "replicars" made in South Africa, they were recently featured on the SPEED channel. 
          Branson, Missouri, a Mecca of country western music, is a mere 1,200
miles from Richmond; and yes we drove, in an open cockpit car every mile there.  Luggage for the week was limited to 2 small duffle bags for both my wife and I. I told Karla she had to leave her shoe suitcase at home!
          Our trip started on Tuesday, April 21 from Richmond with a fellow SPF owner from West Point. Our first stop was Knoxville, Tennessee a short 7 hour trip, where we spent the night. Wednesday morning we met up with another owner from South Carolina and we were off to Memphis. In Memphis we hooked up with 3 more cars, 2 trailers, and were kindly informed that it was tradition to "cruise all rest stops" whether we stopped or not.
I thought it was a little sophomoric at first; but as we cruised through the rest stops, the smiles we brought to road
weary travelers were priceless. Thursday evening, under cloudy skies, and after 23 hours of driving over three days, we pulled into Branson.
          Cruise Day 1 started with a 140 mile cruise from Branson to the quaint
mountain village of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. It was obvious; the town folk had never seen an AC Cobra, much less 36 of them. As we cruised through Main Street literally every shopkeeper and tourist came out to see what the noise was all about.  Even the roofers stood upon the roofs and waived. Unbeknownst to us, Eureka Springs was also hosting a
cross-dressers convention (Yes, that's where the guys dress in women's clothes), fortunately no one picked up a single hitchhiker as we passed through town. We only got lost once, and the U-turn through a gravel driveway was ugly.
          Cruise Day 2, a 115 mile cruise to Cassville, Missouri through the twisting Ozark Mountains with a train of AC Cobras following each other. At times it was a little scary approaching blind curves at twice the recommended speed, or topping hills when the last thing you saw was brake lights. A group of renegade drivers went off on their own to "catch some air" over the hilltops, a little too daring for my blood. There were no accidents to report, but the spirited driving was exhilarating to say the least.



          After a fun week of driving it was time to motor it home as the cold front moved in.  We left Sunday morning 7am, 38 degrees outside, so the dreaded rag top went on and after 12 and a half hours of driving stopped for the evening, and finished our journey home on Monday. 
          2,400 miles of pure fun! I can't wait until next year.

CVMC At MCA National, Huntsville, Ala. – May 13th to May 15th! Rusty Wiseman, Betty Wiseman and myself met at the Rest Stop on I-64 in Goochland County Thursday, May 12th, to begin our journey to the MCA National in Huntsville, Alabama.

          The weather was good except for a couple of showers south of Blacksburg, Va. We decided to stop in Bristol, Va. for the night. Got up early the next morning and hit the breakfast bar at Shoney’s before we hit the road.

          The weather was great and the countryside was fantastic as usual. We did miss our turn in Chattanooga, Tn., BUT! We had a good reason. One of Chattanooga’s finest was between Rusty and myself and I was a little preoccupied with him that I missed our turn. Oh well, what can I say. We figured it out rather fast and back tracked about 5 or 6 miles to make the right turn. The rest of the way to Huntsville was great!



          We arrived about noon on Friday, May 13th, got checked in and went to clean the cars. We were lucky, there was a Magic Wand kind of car wash real close. After cleaning up the cars we made our way over to the show and got registered and hung out until 5:00pm.

          We went out to eat at Ryan’s Steak House and totally stuffed ourselves. When we got back to the hotel I decided to detail my Cobra for the next day and to work off some of that food I just ate. The next thing I knew we had a couple from the Gate City – Triad Mustang Club also cleaning their Mustangs so afterwards we hung out in the parking lot for a little while before we turned in for the night.

          On Saturday, May 14th, we arrived at the show about 8:00am. On the way in I got a picture of my Cobra taken in front of the SR-71 Blackbird by the show photographer. We went to our parking spaces which by the way were right beside each other. I wonder if they got the idea from our show. Anyway we finished detailing our Mustangs and started to check out the rest of the great Mustangs at the show. And let me tell you there were plenty of them. I believe when it was all said and done they had about 380 Mustangs.



          Rusty got a real treat. He got to meet Scott Hoag the head designer of the Bullitt and Mach 1 Mustangs and talk to him for a while. He also got him to sign his Mustang! A little later in the day while they were trying to judge the cars a rather large storm came through and reeked havoc on the show. Other than getting wet I don’t think there was much damage done to the great collection of Mustangs there. I, on the other hand was stupid enough to leave my hood open while the storm was approaching. A good gust of wind got up and blew my hood back toward my windshield, Lucky for me someone was checking out the car when this happened and caught the hood before it caused more harm than it did. Who that person was…”Thank You!”

          We had a dinner and free run of the Space and Rocket center that night and we also got to see the movie NASCAR on the IMAX, which was cool!



          The next day was relax day and enjoy the show, meet new people and wait for the awards. They had Scott Hoag hand out the awards. Rusty got a 2nd and I got a 2nd. Congrats Rusty on your first MCA National. After the awards ceremony Rusty and Betty were headed north and I was headed south for my much needed vacation.

          You really do need to attend a MCA National some day to get a good idea of what it is all about and it is not just Mustangs!

CVMC Cruise In at Hooters – May 21st! We will have more on the turn out at this Cruise In next month.



CVMC In DC National Memorial Day Parade – Washington, D.C., May 30th! CVMC and Victory 7 had a great time at the National Memorial Day Parade.

          Most of the CVMC contingent went up on Sunday, May 29th. Myself and the McDaniel’s met Victory 7 at Virginia Center Commons Mall at 3:45am (yes, I said AM) for the trip to DC.

          On the way to DC we stopped in Fredericksburg to meet a few more from Victory 7.



          We arrived in Springfield to meet up with the rest of the CVMC bunch. We had a little drivers meeting and off to DC we went. Believe it or not we actually made it to the staging area without losing anyone.

          We lined up on Madison Ave. The parade was 112 units strong. I believe we started about 10:00am. We had 4 members of the Marine Corp League riding in some of our Mustangs. It was an honor to have them with us. It took a little over an hour to complete. It wasn’t a large crowd but, this was the 1st Memorial Day Parade since WWII. I’m sure it will be larger next year.



          After the parade came the fun part. We had to get back onto I-395 south. All made it without any problems except for the unfortunate few that happen to be following me. Billy McDaniel came to the rescue and we finally got onto I-395 south. We went back to Springfield and had lunch at Bennigan’s at Springfield Mall. That place had the worse service I have ever seen and the food wasn’t that good either. Needless to say we will not be going back there again.



          The traffic on I-95 was heavy leaving NOVA but the further south we went the better it got. I can’t say the same for the north bound side of I-95. I heard later that 3 people died in a crash near Doswell.

          Everyone made it back nice and safe! I think everyone had a great time and I look forward to the 4th of July Parade!

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...

News From The CCCCVa

By Fred Fann


The good or rather great news is that crude oil prices are now lower than they have been for months. And because of this there are many stations now selling regular for under two-dollars a gallon. The reason prices are down is because the supply of gasoline is up. Lower gas prices are good news for everyone and good news for our economy. Since the stock market has been seesawing up and down we need some good news.

            The down side of this is that we have seen the future. While gas prices do go up and down over the years one thing is for certain. The price of gas has continued to rise over time and will go up again. Unlike computers and other high tech gadgets gasoline will go up in price and we will continue to pay more for it. Get used to it.

            Our DMV has never lived down that fact that the agency issued drivers licenses/id’s to many of the 9/11 terrorists. DMV has continued to make it more difficult for ordinary citizens to get a drivers license. I recall a lady I worked with several years ago who had a crazy man stick a knife to her throat and take her purse. She lost a few bucks but also her drivers license and car registration. She simply went to DMV and gave them her social security number and got another license and registration for her car. Today that would not happen. You would need photo ID. Now think what kind of a fix you would be in if your purse or wallet was lost or stolen along with your license and vehicle registrations. How would you get a replacement?

            Now DMV is going further. The agency is going to change the way it issues licenses beginning in fall 2006. If you apply for a license you will only get a receipt. The receipt allows you to drive but will not be an ID. A private company will create your license with photo and mail it to your home within three days. This company will compare your photo with previous DMV license photos to insure it is you applying for the license.

            One of the ways crooks steal personal information is by going through your mail. If you have an outside mailbox and are not home when the mail arrives a thief could get your license. Then they could replace your photo with their photo. The altered license could be used to get credit cards and other nice things in your name.

            I am confused about why DMV would have them mailed. I would think picking them up in person would be a more secure method. DMV is open to comments on this new system.

            The US Senate has approved new federal standards for the issuing and renewing of drivers licenses. The purpose is of course to help prevent terrorism and keep illegal immigrants from getting licenses. The states are complaining about the added cost that the feds are not going to fund. Also be sure to dig up your old birth certificate and if you have one an old passport. In the future you may need them to get a license or just to travel across the border to Mexico or Canada.

            Congress has been working on a new highway-funding bill since the nation’s roads are in need of repair. President Bush opposes the bill because it will increase the deficit and he promised to reduce the deficit in his second term. We do need the roads fixed so I’m hoping for a compromise.


CVMC Guess the plate



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




Dave’s Mustang Trivia

By David Lythgoe


  1. What did Mustang’s cost in 1992?


  1. What did Mustang’s cost in 1982?


  1. What did Mustang’s cost in 1972?



Rick’s Tip’s


Rear End Maintenance

1964 to 1993


          The rear end assembly is between the 2 rear tires. There are leakage problems with the rear. You can easily check for leakage by looking underneath your car and looking for anything that looks wet around the unit. If you see wetness it is time to get it professionally checked.

          Also it is good to check the fluid level. There is a large set screw on the side of the case about half way up on the center section. The fluid should be up to that screw. There is usually only one set screw or bolt to allow fluid in or out. If you look for this you will be ok.

          Another couple of things to keep an ear out for are noises coming from the rear such as a hum or a clunk. The hum will occur when the car is rolling. A clunk can be heard when the gas is first applied.

          The best way to have the rear end checked is to have your mechanic do the inspection. If you are uncertain please come by my shop for a free inspection.

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


Happy Cruising
