                     About the Vintage Mustang Owners Association
The Vintage Mustang Owners Association (VMOA) was founded in August, 1977 to provide a focal point
for Mustang owners who wished to further their enjoyment of ownership. The club was originally dedicated
to the restoration and preservation of only the 1965 and 1966 Mustangs, but now welcomes all Mustangs up
to and including the current model year of production. Your interest in Mustangs is the most important thing,
not the condition of your car or the fact that you may not even own a Mustang yet. Club members keep
current on the latest Mustang information and participate in numerous fun events all year.

                                          Meeting: Board of Directors
                                           Date: December 23, 2008
                                         Location: Goodies Good eats
    Meeting called to order by president Ken Mannina at 7:15pm
Board Members present: Ken Mannina, John Cortez, Steve Chapman, Walt Boeninger, John O’Toole
Also Present: Tom Hasenberg, Phil Deardorf
1.      Installation dinner is schedule for Jan 10, 2009 at Casa Lupe on Winchester in Campbell. Details are
on VMOA website. Ken will email Kathy Riccardi to see if she can receive the rsvp’s directly. A prelimi-
nary head count will be taken at the VMOA general meeting 1/2/09. Price will be $15.00 per person with
the club underwriting any shortfall.
2.      John O’Toole will provide a scanned copy of the VMOA by laws to Walt Boeninger.. Walt will load
to a program that will allow editing in corrections. It was noted that the by laws still says 2 board members
at large. This was increased to 5 board members at large over two years ago. All pages will reflect the date
January 2008.
3.      It was decided that the January general meeting be held as scheduled on 1/2/09 at Sunnyvale Ford at
7:30pm. The last time the meeting was moved from the regular date, July 08, the location was not available
and Ken felt it best to stay on schedule with our host.
4.      Tom Hasenberg was present to discuss the first meeting of the car show committee. The meeting
will be Tues, 1/13/09 at 7:30 pm at Goodies. This is the second Tuesday after the general meeting and the
committee will try to maintain this day and time each month for all of their monthly meetings. The date for
the car how will be Saturday 6/20/09. The location is currently set for Deanza College. Tom will start
working on the Flyers with artwork to include a 69-70 Boss or Mach1.
5.      Phil Deardorf volunteered to become the MCA rep for the club. The board accepted and Ken will
get the contact info to Phil. Phil was given some disks with VMOA files; he will review to try to put to-
gether a summary of the club’s history.
6.      Discussion regarding the Palo Alto Concours: Walt and Steve reported that the Concours would like
to get enough concours quality Mustangs to create 4 classes with 10 cars each and also have at least an
additional 100 cars for the Mustang Corral. They indicated that it might be difficult to get that many.
Finding qualified judges for the concours classes will also be difficult. Walt and Tom have some Judging
experience but more will be needed. The Concours is scheduled for the end of June 2009, so there is still
time to get the word out to ours and other clubs.
7.      Walt continues to update and enhance the VMOA website. Steve indicated the extensive calendar
that was available on the site. Walt indicated that he could add links to the MCA and Norcal Saac websites.
8.      Steve reported that he has found a source for procuring VMOA pennants. He will meet with them
hopefully in the next week to firm up a price. He will also inquire about getting VMOA patches and win-
dow decals from the same source.
9.      Steve indicated that the current Membership Application needs to be updated. The website needs to
be corrected and a line to indicate an MCA # will be added. John O’Toole will check his computer files for
a master to be edited. Phil also has a disk indicating the master for this document.
10.     John Cortez indicated that a car of the month was needed for the January 2009 newsletter. After
some discussion, Tom volunteered his 07 GT500.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:30pm.
                                                                                    Respectfully submitted,

                              VMOA Car of The Month




     I became interested in the S197 Mustang as soon as I saw the first spy photos. Reading about the car
 heightened my interest with its significantly stiffer frame than the SN95 predecessors. I spoke with Rick
 Titus at SAAC30 in May 1995 and he had nothing but praise for the car. He also told me that when sales
 cooled off, Ford would be coming out with all of the special Mustang models including Cobras, Shelby’s,
 Bosses, and Mach I’s. I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be neat to have a late model Shelby to complement
 my ’66 GT350.
     Fast forward 2 years later and there were 2 versions of the Shelby available - the Shelby GT and the
 GT500. I had decided to take a closer look. The last Sunday of June 2007, Liz, Christian and I. headed to
 the local Ford dealer to see what they had. The GT500 ‘vertible in the showroom really caught our eyes as
 well as several GT500 coupes. The Roush Mustangs and Shelby GT’s also looked enticing. We met with a
 salesman and discussed the cars. After a bit of discussion, we test drove a Stage 3 Roush and then a Shelby
 GT. Next, we drove a red Roush 427 ‘vertible. We all loved that car – especially the torque and power. We
 discussed the GT500s with the salesman, but they had $35K dealer mark up and were fairly inflexible. We
 decided to sleep on our choices and left for the day. That evening, I decided I really wanted a supercharged
 car like the GT500s and 427 Roush’s. Liz and I agreed to a budget at about the sticker price of the GT500.
 If I could not find a GT500 for near sticker price, my second choice was to order a Shelby GT ‘vertible (We
 called around and no dealer had one in stock).
     The next day I started my new job at Coherent. That evening I took Christian to hockey practice. On the
 way home I realized we had not included CEF in our Mustang search the previous day. We stopped in and
 as we were drooling over the PJ Boss302 Saleen, a salesman asked us what we were looking for. I told him
 we really want a GT500 but it is probably out of our budget. He told us they had one and took us over to a
 striking red coupe. .............................
8
 .......He asked what I would pay for it tonight. I told him our budget and he said how about $5K above it. I
.told him that was my budget and I would order a Shelby GT ragtop if I couldn’t swing the GT500. He came
 back with the manager who then offered the car for $2K above our budget. Christian immediately said “Dad
 let’s get it”. I told the sales manager I was already pushing it with my budget and would be in trouble with
 Liz if I went over. The manager then called the owner and came back and shook my hand. We just bought a
 new GT500!
      I drove the car home that evening with Christian riding shotgun. All of us were quite excited. I drove it
 to work the next day and took the long way home to try to get 50 miles on the car so I could get boost. The
 on board computer was programmed to prevent the blower from providing boost until the car had 50 miles
 on it. Once we had the 50 miles Christian enjoyed hearing the sound of the supercharger. He would lean
 over to look at the gauge with a smile and ask “How many pounds of boost did we get?”
      A few weeks after getting the car we decided to take it on our week long road trip to Northern California.
 We drove down Highway 9 to Santa Cruz and then up the coast along Highway 1. We had brunch in Half
 Moon Bay and continued up the coast. The car was very enjoyable to drive. It had great torque and power
 and was very stable in the corners on the mountain roads. Regardless of how hard I pushed it, the car gave a
 feeling of confidence on the curvy mountain roads.
      The bright red car received a lot of attention throughout the week. We had one particularly amusing
 moment in Arcata, CA (near Eureka). We were driving along a city street when 2 boys passed on bikes in
 the opposite direction. One boy turned his head and just stared at the car. He continued to ride along with
 his head turned 180 degrees and then crashed into the curb. We were momentarily concerned that he was
 hurt, but suddenly his head popped up and he gave us a big thumbs up! This was the highlight of the trip for
 Christian. For the remainder of the week, we continued to take all the back roads of California. We ended
 up driving over 1100 miles, with less than 5 of them on the freeways! It was a great way to break in the
 new Shelby!
