CVMC Dyno Day @ Performance Autosports – August 13th! CVMC had 10 club Mustangs put on the Dyno for the day.

          It was a very hot day so I am sure later in the fall the Dyno numbers should be better.

          I believe CVMC had about 12 to 13 members either Dyno or came by to hang out.

          It was a great time and I am sure we will be doing another Dyno Day later in the year.


CVMC Cruise In Tractor Supply Company – August 13th! It was a HOT and STEAMY August Night and CVMC had a great turnout for the Cruise In at the Tractor Supply off of Hull Street Road near Winterpock.

          There is an Italian Restaurant in the same Shopping Center and they had some great food.



This is a really good Cruise In. We stayed way into the night. It must have been after 10:00pm when we left.

          I know everyone had a great time and will want to do it again soon.

CVMC Cruise In to Arnold’s, South Hill, Va. – August 20th!  CVMC had a real good turn out for this Cruise to Arnold’s in South Hill. We had 11 Mustangs show up.

          We met at the McDonald’s at the Willis Road exit on I-95. We left at 3:30pm and took I-95 south to I-85 to the first exit onto Route 1 south of Petersburg. We took Route 1 south all the way to South Hill.

          It was a great ride. The countryside was great. We did have to slow down for a family of Turkeys crossing the road.

            It took about 1 ½ hours to get there. Arnold’s is a really nice place and they people were great. On top of that the food was real good.

          I feel that we will be making another road trip to Arnold’s again. I wish I had pictures but I forgot my camera!

News From The Blue Oval




          Marketing, Sales and Service combines Ford and Lincoln Mercury divisions into unified functions for marketing and for sales.

          New streamlined structure strengthens Ford, Lincoln and Mercury brands.

          Field organizations for Ford and Lincoln Mercury are combined into 11 market areas.

          DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 8, 2005 – Beginning this fall with the introductions of important new products like the Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan and Lincoln Zephyr midsize sedans, Ford Motor Company will look to newly consolidated marketing and sales organizations for comprehensive, high-impact marketing launches and a sustained emphasis on retail sales.

          Changes announced today to the company’s Marketing, Sales and Service organization will sharpen its focus on sales while building an even stronger marketing group. Marketing, Sales and Service will be integrated into unified sales and unified marketing functions, combining the present Ford and Lincoln Mercury divisions. This will create a more streamlined operation while strengthening the individual identities for the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury brands.

          “We’re going to reach customers in smarter, more focused ways than ever before while being extremely efficient with resources,” says Steve Lyons, Ford group vice president, North America Marketing, Sales and Service. “This new organization will help us develop a single-minded concentration on reaching our customers with the strongest product lineup in our history.”

          The structural changes in Marketing, Sales and Service will contribute to the company’s overall acceleration of its business plan in response to the competitive environment and operating challenges.

          The integrated structure will include a greater emphasis on strategic marketing and brand positioning. Best practices will be shared quicker and new tools and techniques will be applied across the North America brands simultaneously.

          “A key strength within the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury family of brands is our dealers and their strong relationships within their local markets,” Lyons says. “Consolidating our sales operations to form a single organization will allow us to better serve our dealer network.”

          Lyons continues to head the North America Marketing, Sales and Service operations. Darryl Hazel is appointed vice president - Marketing, Al Giombetti is appointed vice president - Sales and Cisco Codina continues as president - Ford Customer Service.

          “Today's marketplace is fragmented into ever smaller niche groups than in the past,” says Hazel. “Our new Marketing organization will focus on reaching individual customers with increasing relevance and excitement.”

          Field organizations for Ford and Lincoln Mercury are being combined as well, with17 Ford and Lincoln Mercury regions becoming 11 market areas. The 11 markets are: Mountain West, Central, Midwest , Midsouth, Southwest, California, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes , Southeast and Florida . The Ford Customer Service field organization will have a corresponding reduction in regions with similar geographic boundaries.

          “We have the strongest dealer network in the industry and we are committed to maintaining – even growing – dealer contact and support in local markets,” Giombetti says.

News From The CCCCVa

By Fred Fann


          The press is out to get us - or to at least bother the devil out of us. It started the first of August with an article by the “Associated Press”. No names of course because the person or persons who wrote the article wouldn’t want to be forced to defend it. A man had a 1929 Duisenberg restored. He took his wife and three kids for a ride. A driver of a Volvo blew through a stop sign hitting them killing the man, his wife and son. Somehow the article blamed the old car for not having seat belts and the car hobbyists for not installing the latest safety equipment in a restored classic. The Volvo driver? The police are “considering” charges.

          The person or persons who wrote this article are scrum - there is no other way to put it. They took advantage of a terrible mishap to push their own agenda.

          You may have seen the article in a Tidewater newspaper titled “A Classic or Clunker?”. Some nut case woman in Norfolk bought a 76 Pinto that is a real piece of crap. The exhaust has no muffler, floor pans are rotted out, the rear window is glued in Plexiglas, etc. The car’s a piece of rolling junk. Instead of calling the police to ticket the clunker for multiple violations the reporter tells how it escapes because of its antique tags. Hopefully by now some cop has stopped this junker and had it towed and impounded.

          So the news media doesn’t like us? I guess we’re joining the ranks of a lot of famous people. Misuse of antique tags is becoming a serious problem due to people like the woman in Norfolk. And we need to form a plan to prevent the misuse of antique tags and we need to do it soon. Council members around the state are going to work on this. Apparently we have good PR with everyone except the media. Perhaps it’s time to work on them.

          We’ve heard that some Cobra kit car owners are pursuing a bill to allow replica cars to have the same rights as vehicles registered as antiques. I will have more on this as I learn more about the possible General Assembly bill.

          The hot spell we had didn’t help us out in the air quality department. There have been 3 days in the Richmond area where the ozone level has been exceeded.

          I’m sure you have heard that our Congress has passed energy and transportation bills. Both cost more than President Bush wanted and despite his veto threat he has gone along with them. It has taken his entire time in office to get an energy bill through Congress.

          Virginia was a big winner on the transportation bill. The only item missing was money to improve I-81. Of course this bill was packed with pork for other areas. One I especially liked was a bridge that is to be built to an island in Alaska. This island has a total of 50 people and it will cost about $4.5 million per person to build. The Congressman who got this bridge added to the bill is chair of the transportation committee.

          The energy bill gives tax breaks and incentives to those starving big oil companies who are raking in huge profits. And gas prices - what is causing them to go up and up? The word is that it is simple greed. Sure there is terrorism in the world but that is only an excuse to raise prices. High prices haven’t hurt demand so experts say prices will continue to go up. I call it price gouging.


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. How many 1969 to 1970 Shelby Mustangs were made?
  2. How many Hertz Shelby Mustangs were made?
  3. What was the price of a 1969 Shelby Mustang in 1969?



Rick’s Tip’s


Paint it or Plate it?


          All Mustangs’ produced have parts in them that will rust. Rust is caused by water and air. To prevent this from happening, bare metal pieces should either be painted or plated.

          Before applying paint or plating, corrosion must be removed. The best way to do this is thru media blasting (sandblasting or glass beading, etc.)

          In the Mustang Club of America (MCA) and the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) have classes for New Old Stock only restored cars. Unfortunately all pieces that the factory installed that are bare metal have to be bare metal for judging. These cars require almost weekly cleanings and are extremely difficult to maintain. In other words don’t try this unless you really enjoy constantly maintaining your car.

          The Concourse Trailered and Concourse Driven allow for painting and plating of the bare metal pieces. This is the best way to go.

          Eastwood makes several paints that duplicate factory finishes from phosphate to zinc dichromate. More on the different finishes later.

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


Happy Cruising
