August Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

These last four weeks have seen me traveling but not attending or participating in any “auto related” activities. I did enjoy a great five days with family and friends in Boulder, Colorado taking in some of nature’s natural wonders via numerous hikes. Many photos are posted on my facebook page – take a look when you can. The rest of the time we have had company as well as assisting my daughter in preparing for the arrival of her second baby, a boy, due first week in September. Guess I will be searching for two Mustangs in the coming years instead of just one!

Let me remind all members of some key upcoming dates. (1) Our yearly trip to Somerset, KY to participate and enjoy “Mustang Alley” (www.somernitescruise.org) takes place Friday, August 21 – Sunday, August 23. An email with all the details of where to meet and logistics should be in your email boxes by time you receive this newsletter. (2) The second is the 42nd Annual Shelby/Mustang Ford Show, scheduled for August 29 & 30, in Maggie Valley, NC. – This event is hosted by the North East Georgia Mustang Club – information at www.negeorgiamustangclub.org. Chuck and Melinda Pelham of our Club will be attending this event. (3) Our very own “All Ford and Mustang Show” coming up on September 26. This show represents our 36th year of hosting this event. Much work still needs to be done to prepare for this show. Tim Forkum will be providing an update and soliciting Club members help at our Club meeting this Thursday, August 20. For those of you not able to attend the Club meeting but willing to help, please give Tim a call at (615) 202-4574 or email him at www.svtgarage.com.

On the Board front, we met this past week for our quarterly meeting to discuss various and sundry items. Here is a synopsis of some of the items we discussed:

1. Regarding the placement of a separate “for sale” site on our website – the Board voted not to institute this request due to the amount of time and follow-up that would be necessary to maintain it up to date. As an alternative, the Board agreed that any member could provide “for sale” items along with photos to Kevin Davenport for publication in our monthly newsletter. This newsletter goes out the Monday prior to our regularly scheduled monthly Club meeting. All articles for sale need to be emailed to Kevin and in his possession by the Saturday before the monthly Club meeting.

2. Regarding the provision of additional merchandise with the multi-color pony logo for Club members to purchase, the Board agreed on the merchandise submitted by our vendor, Rory Bruton of RDB Marketing, Inc. The Board also approved for Ray to maintain a supply of both T-shirts and Sweatshirts in inventory with the appropriate logos. Other items will be available for purchase, as in the past, through Ray. In order to meet the requirement of minimum orders and keep pricing low, we will have Club order twice a year for specialty items, i.e. caps, hoodies, jackets, polo shirts – information will be emailed to all Club members this month and if sufficient interest, an order will be placed at the September Club meeting.

3. The Board approved the ordering of four multi-color banners with our Club name and logo to display at our events.

4. Board approved the date of December 12 for our Christmas Party. Location will be Hermitage Church of Christ. More information will be provided in other newsletters.

Please note that we have some great items for our silent auction at the Car Show in September, but could use more. Any help from Club members in obtaining gift certificates for automotive products from any of the many vendors in the area would be greatly appreciated.

Our newsletter this month contains two “for sale” items. Take a look and see if they are on your “wish” list.

In closing, please remember to send to Kevin or me any articles, news events of interest, stories of trips you have taken, projects you are working on as well as any items wanted or for sale. All must be in Kevin’s hand no later than the Saturday prior to our monthly Club meeting in order to be inserted in the newsletter. The newsletter is your “vehicle” to communicate to other Club members what is happening in your world.

Take care and drive safe!!
Henry

August “Mustang Trivia”

Question:

The Mustang in the late 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s used the popular 5.0 motor. What was the first year that Ford did not offer the 5.0 motor in the Mustangs in the 1990s?

Answer:

In 1996 Ford started using the 4.6L modular motor that is still being used by current GT and Cobra's today. The 4.6l motor uses overhead cams instead of push rods like the 5.0 engine.
