    THE ORANGE COUNTY MUSTANG CLUB In 1987 a group of individuals, who appreciated the beauty and performance of the Ford Mustang, joined together to

    form the Orange County Mustang Club. Their purpose was to promote the restoration, preservation and enjoyment of

    the Ford Mustang. To perpetuate this goal members, pay early dues, meet monthly, promote car shows, hold social

    activities, take cruises, and attend parades and other activities to foster their love for the Ford Mustang. Any person who

    owns or appreciates the Ford Mustang, no matter what model or year, is welcome to join, Ownership is not obligatory,

    but enthusiasm is.

    A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRESIDENT

    As I stated in last month’s newsletter, the one thing I really am focused on during

    my presidency is the rewriting of our very outdated and ill-written bylaws. To that

    end, Larry Rhinehart and myself have spent countless hours since December

    drafting, comparing, and then re-drafting proposals. These drafts have been shared

    with your elected board members at two board meetings and a special board

    meeting devoted only to bylaws revision. As I previously pointed out, the current

    bylaws, which we are mandated to follow, call for only the five elected board

    members (President, V.P., Treasurer, Secretary, and Membership Chairperson) to be

    able to vote on bylaws amendments, and the approval for a change must be unanimous.

    I am pleased to announce that the board has unanimously agreed to the proposed changes.

    However, this is a tentative vote. Although not required, we feel that we should listen to any

    constructive criticism or other ideas before we take a final vote at the end of April. To accomplish

    that timeline, we are posting beginning this evening (March 13) on the “Members Only” portion of our

    website the entire 20 pages of the finalized proposed new bylaws. Members have until the April 10

    General Meeting to communicate concerns, objections, questions, or constructive ideas with any

    elected Board member. Your remarks will be shared at the Board meeting of April 24; a final vote

    may occur as early as the April 24 meeting depending on the extent and nature of the feedback. Do

    not ask that this be put to the membership for a vote; the current bylaws must be followed and

    clearly defines the procedure as set forth above.

    I will now summarize the major changes and review them at the March general meeting.

    Unlike now, the members will have authority to amend the bylaws by a two-thirds vote. We will every

    year elect a President-Elect, Treasurer, Secretary, Membership Director, and six to 8 Directors-at-

    Large. All have a vote on the Board. The terms last one year, except that the President-Elect

    becomes the President automatically the following year, and then the Immediate Past President the

    next year. So, whoever is elected President -Elect is committing to being on the Board for three years.

    There is a Nominating Committee which will seek out and nominate members to the Board positions

    at the November general meeting; however, any member can still be nominated from the floor at

    the November or December meeting. If a position is contested between 2 or more members, there is

    a written election procedure with an Election Committee to conduct the elections. Lastly, since we

    have no President-Elect at this time, we will have a transition election this November- December

    which gets the cycle going for the future. In other words, we will elect a 2020 President and also a

    President-Elect in December, and I will move into the Immediate Past President position at the end of

    my term.

    The Board unanimously feels that the new bylaws will provide the structure to get more

    members involved with their OCMC, and will help to generate the enthusiasm that a diversity of

    thought and ideas brings to any organization. The new bylaws will give complete control of the club

    to you, the members.

    Cruisin’ For A Cure Car Show

    Lots of charity car shows provide critical funding for many good causes, but few have the kind of

    immediate personal impact that the Cruisin' For A Cure Car Show delivers each year in Costa Mesa,

    California. This was the 19th year for this annual event, held at the Orange County Fairgrounds in

    Southern California. Debbie Baker, the founder of the show, started it in honor of her husband, who

    was diagnosed prostate cancer and passed in 2007 and a way to save our men from prostate

    cancer by providing free screening. As Debbie says, “what better way to get our men tested then

    have them come to where all their buddies are with their cars”.

    The show is billed as “The World’s Largest One-Day Charity Car Show Event.” The event provides free

    prostate cancer screenings. This year alone, the show saw just over 907 men take advantage of this

    free testing and over 228 with elevated PSA’s. To date, we have heard from 52 of these men who

    indeed did have prostate cancer and had successful surgeries and are cancer free. These cancer

    survivors are celebrated at each show with a group photo and the proud men sporting their blue

    survivor shirts.

    One of the unique aspects of the “Cruisin’ For A Cure” show is it is just that – it’s a cruise. With the

    3,000-plus cars parked around the Orange County Fairgrounds, there is an actual 1½-mile cruise

    route that travels around the fairgrounds which was held on September 22, 2018, the parade/cruise

    route kicks off at 9 a.m., with show founder Debbie Baker leading the way on top of a fire truck, with

    several historic fire trucks right behind her in the lead truck. There is a constant parade of cars that

    make the cruise all the way around the fairgrounds and 4 buildings filled with cars as well.

    The quality of the cars at the event ranged from some nice daily drivers to high-end collectibles.

    Legendary Barry Meguiar even had his two Ford GT’s on display, as well as his 1901 Trinity horseless

    carriage. The Meguiar’s Hangar, a building whose display vehicles are by invitation only; only 60 cars

    are invited into the hangar building each year. The OCMC also had several cars in the Meguiar’s

    Hangar Reunion area as well. Members who were parked in the Hangar / Reunion areas included

    Paul Montesano, Tom Baker (Survivor), Larry Rhinehart, Craig Kamansky, Kathy Garner, Jenny

    McGrath, Rich Miller (Survivor), Gary Garner, Jim Johnson, Terri Johnson, Dennis McGrath, Cindy

    Brenneman and Tom Brenneman. Ford, once again, was well represented with lots of Mustangs, hot

    rods and a ray of many other manufacturers too.

    It perhaps should be no surprise that Ford also dominated the awards. Two of the OCMC members

    that took home awards were Kathy Garner’s ’32 Ford Cabriolet and Jenny McGrath’s 1970 Mach 1

    Mustang.

    This show has become a destination event, with vehicles coming in from all over the country. Not only

    is it now a bucket-list show to attend, but don’t forget that all of the registration fees go to Prostate

    Cancer Research. The 2019 show is going to be held on Saturday September 28th, 2019 which

    coincides with September being National Prostate Cancer Awareness month. For more information,

    WELCOME NEW MEMBERS… Steve Eichenberget and his wife, Jeanette McKeown, are

    fortunate to have several beautiful cars but none is more

    special than their 2017 Shelby GT – 350. A former nuclear

    submarine technician in the Navy, we enjoyed spending

    time with them on the Temecula Cruise.

    Steve purchased their Shelby near his home on the east

    coast so now that he’s relocating to San Clemente he drove

    his beautiful GT-350 across country. Steve and Jeanette ,

    welcome to the OCMC and to sunny Southern California.

    At one time Don Ash owned a Boss 302 Mustang then in

    2017 the Ford dealership sent him a special invitation to

    Laguna Seca Raceway to test drive a Shelby GT-350. Yep,

    that’s all it took to get him into a Shelby of his own.

    Now retired, after over 40 years of working in the Ford Parts

    Department, Don loves hanging out at Orange County car

    events. But soon he’ll have a dilemma...which car will he

    drive?His awesome 2017 Shelby GT-350 or the recently

    ordered and nearly completed 2019 Mustang COBRA.

    LEGO Creator Unveils Classic 1960s Ford Mustang Model

    Lego has just announced the newest addition to its Creator vehicle series: a 1967 Ford Mustang. This new set,

    available to purchase on March 1 for $149.99, comes with 1,471 pieces and a few surprises that improve its

    playability.

    The base car you build is a gorgeous first-generation 'Stang in dark blue with white racing stripes that look spot-

    on for what we'd expect to see on a Shelby, but curiously, this kit features no such Shelby branding. It features

    period correct details recreated in brick form, such as a hood scoop, the famous Mustang logo in the grille,

    and five-spoke wheels on real rubber tires. The interior, trunk, and engine bay are all reproduced in typical Lego

    detail, and the steering wheel even turns the front wheels.

    In addition to the base car, though, Lego will include a number of customizations. The supercharger is the

    coolest, which replaces the hood scoop and adds untold imaginary horsepower to the V8 engine below. There

    are also pieces for side-exit exhaust pipes, a rear ducktail spoiler, a chin spoiler, and a nitrous oxide tank

    located in the trunk. To top it all off, there are risers to adjust the lift of the rear axle and give the Mustang a

    more menacing stance. So whether you want an accurate representation of a classic Mustang or an over-the-

    top muscle car monster to play with, this set should satisfy. Like other Creator vehicle sets before it, this Mustang

    is large, measuring 13 inches long, 5 inches wide, and 3 inches tall.

    Meet OCMC Member Jim Morrison Born into a devout Ford family, Jim Morrison’s father had several Fords including a Ford Model T and 1964 ½ Mustang but Jim’s first car was a beat-up ol’ Ford Falcon. Thu the

    years he had other Fords so when his daughter wanted a car, he got her a Ford, a 1966

    Ford Mustang coupe.

    Over the next few years Jim made several safety modifications and a few minor repairs.

    When his daughter moved out, Jim offered to take care of her Mustang for her

    (wink,wink.)

    Now he could make some “real” changes. He started by installing a new 302 engine

    followed by anything else that could give him that racecar rush. At every Irwindale

    Speedway club event he wait until they finished the “No peeling out…” spiel, then Jim

    would always the first one to put the pedal to the metal.

    There are few people as active as Jim. He loves any type of racing – NASCAR, Drags…,

    he loves motorcycles, fishing and camping but music is his passion. He collects various

    types of music. You’ll often find him D.J.ing for a band named Tres Hombres and

    dancing while they perform. Another passion is playing softball. Currently he’s

    recovering from an injury but he’s looking forward to going back to the Senior

    SoftBall League in the next few weeks. And, lastly, he loves Mustang car clubs.

    In addition to being a member of the Orange County Mustang Club, he is

    Vice President of the South Bay Mustang Owners Club in Torrance

    Married for 36 years, he and his wife Lisa have a son and 4 daughters.

    As a believer in the “happy wife/happy life” theory he recently

    bought her the car of her dreams – a 1965 Mustang Coupe.

    He’s refreshing/updating it now to make it ready for the

    Classic Auto Show. Looking forward to seeing this beautiful

    pony up close.

    On Sunday, February 17th, the Annual Outlaw

    Daytona 500 party took place. Cold and Rainy

    weather made no difference, as a huge crowd of

    "Non Wusses" gathered with their fellow Hot Rodders

    to watch "The Great American Race !" I thought

    about having a contest where every time the TV

    announcers say "Great American Race !" we have to

    take a shot of Fireball....but they don't make that

    much Fireball. Mustangs and other Rods were parked

    up and down the street....and those that come early

    get Preferred parking in my driveway....and in front of

    my driveway (fortunately the police don't cruise my

    street very often).

    Was glad to see new President Craig Kamansky and

    VP, Paul "Jersey Paulie" Montesano attending their

    first party. Thanks for the Gar, Paulie ! Hope you guys

    had a good time. The Pizza arrived early and often.

    People also brought some great "real food"; thank

    you Jim Morrison for the big bowl of delicious home

    made Jambalaya, that lasted about ten minutes.

    Jeff and Jeannie Weiss tried to add some class to the

    gathering by bringing a sculptured fruit platter, it was

    great !

    We all enjoyed an exciting race, that in the last ten

    laps resembled a fairly expensive demolition

    derby. Making it through the carnage to finish first

    was the "Toyota" of Denny Hamlin. Better luck to the

    Fords next year.

    Next up is my Indy 500 party, May 26th. Later ! Written and hosted by Jeff Grant

    Del Austin was finally feeling better after one

    surgical procedure and two weeks in intensive care

    at the Loma Linda Veterans Hospital. Now all he

    had to do was take medication intravenously for

    four weeks, 24/7 for 4 long weeks!

    So they moved Del to the VA assisted living

    wing. The first week was long and boring. Then

    came Sunday, the 17th. He remembers: "I knew

    my wife, Jan, and the Thompsons were coming and

    I was looking forward to seeing them. Jan, Kathryn

    and Ivan moved the curtain back when they came

    into my room. They were followed by Jeff and

    Jeannie Weiss and then Donna and Andy Alves

    and then Natalie and John Mamola and Tom and

    Teri Sulser and Craig Kamansky, our OCMC

    President!!!!

    I was so overwhelmed and from the look in their

    eyes, I think they thought I was going to have a

    heart attack. My happiness soon turned to

    gratefulness for these amazing friends I found in the

    Orange County Mustang Club."

    As told to Teri Sulser

    Mike Spradling owned and drove trucks most of his life

    but the childhood memories of riding in his uncle’s

    1967 Mustang we’re always in the back of his mind.

    Fast forward years later, he was finally ready to start

    shopping for his own Mustang. The first dealership had

    several choices from Eco to GT PLUS one very, very

    special car...a 2019 Dark Highland Green BULLITT! It

    was love at first sight and he loves driving it every

    single day.
