                Tech Piece
I was reading Tom’s September Mus-
tang Monthly last night trying to get
ideas for the newsletter. As I read some
of the articles it came to me I might be
over my head. Then I saw the “How To”
feature and I thought this is something I
could do. The piece was Install LED
Backup Lights on page 58. I was
hooked when I read it only took a Phil-
lips-head screwdriver and a pair of nee-
dle nose pliers. This is a Mustang Pro-
ject replacement for the incandescent
bulbs and should provide much more
light as you back up at night in your ’65-
’68 Mustang. OK to start take off the

              The Prez Sez...

                          FEBRUARY 2011

 January wasn’t exactly a fun filled month for car activities but
don’t get discouraged, spring is right around the corner. I was
looking at a list of upcoming car shows in my Mustang Monthly
magazine and I see that they actually have some in January in
Florida. Oh-well, our turn will come when it’s too hot and humid
down there.

I also was reading about a contest where one person can win two
Mustangs. You can win a totally restored 1969 Boss 302 and a
2012 Boss 302 one-of-a-kind Patriot Edition. Those two would be
a great addition to the club stable. If you would like to enter then
go to Your donation will benefit Healing He-
roes Network as they help our wounded troops returning from
overseas. I believe they draw the winner on July 4th.

Another great Mustang coming out this year is the 2011 Shelby GT350. I know some of you saw one in
Bellevue last summer. I hope to see one driving around town this summer and better yet, as a member’s
car in the club. Anybody in the market?

In February we have a couple of activities where I would like to see a good turn-out because I know you
will have a great time. On the 15th we have the “Hot Chocolate Run” at Wendy’s at the Y at 6:30. They
have good food and it is always great to have a meal with good friends and fellow car enthusiasts. Then on
the 19th is the “Show No Shine” at the Double Tree Inn. I have never heard a bad report from anybody that
has been to this event. Everyone has a great time and can’t wait till the next one. Hope to see you there.

If you did not make the January meeting then you missed out on some stiff competition for the HAH! -
AWARD. We actually had three nominations. I can’t remember the last time we had that much competition
for the south end of a northbound horse. I’m just glad Cliff came close to running over himself instead of
actually doing it or he might not have been able to be there to pick-up his trophy!

I hope to see everyone at the meetings this year, we will be having lots of activities to tell you about and
opportunities for you to volunteer and be an active member in one of the greatest clubs around.

Sincerely your “ work in progress” President,
