Smile The participants make the show...

Wow! On behalf of the club, thank you!

I want to thank these folks that chaired the various committees:

Parking - Billy Hammonds
Registration - David Kelley
Shirts - Gary Dempsey
Trophies - Brandon Smith
Sponsors and Door Prizes - Madeline Bryant
Head Judge - Bill Tucker

And, an extra special thanks to our Show Chairman, Mark Dorner. He really puts his heart into each and every event I watch him work.

The club really works hard, yet has loads of fun at these shows. Not only do we get to see a load of Mustangs as well as other Ford-powered vehicles (~130 this year), we get to meet the people that share our interest and enthusiasm. For us, the people that bring their cars out, work diligently shining and polishing, and spend the day sharing their hobby are what make these events special.

Thank you for coming out and making this year's show a wonderful success!

Ralph Bischof
RCMC President

Man, that's an interesting story about your truck. I certainly noticed your truck when it came in. I had no idea of the Sears connection, or I definitely would have mentioned something over the PA. Bring it next year, make a poster with the Sears information, and we'll park it up next to the Sears building all by itself. I guarantee Glen (Service Manager, Sears) will go for it. We can't highlight a car we don't know anything about.

I also took a pic of the 1919 truck. It was a tough class.

Great show guys!

Anxiously awaiting Samir's pix...

We carefully constructed our classes this year from looking back at our 2003 and 2004 show participants. Our goal was to create classes of 3-6 cars each. We will again use this method to create classes for next year's show. The late models are growing, and the early models are shrinking. We have to stay abreast of the trends.

Note: I expected 8 2005-2006 Popular Vote Mustangs, based on the 2003/2004 shows. We ended up with 15 I believe. That's a good sign for Ford and the new Mustang.

I say it was a tough class because of the quality of cars in it. I don't know how many there were.

I was also surprised at the 2005-2006 Mustang turnout, and the level of competition. There were some really sweet, nicely modified cars in that class.

Darn shame that our friend feels slighted. Any of us that have shown our cars more than a few times, knows that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That's why there are so many different cars at a show. I'm a firebird man. It's tough to compete with the high quality camaros and mustangs around here. I didn't build my car to outshow anyone. I like firebirds. If you're in it for recognition rather than the love of the sport, maybe you should consider another hobby.

The problem on your truck very few people at the show are old enough to know what your truck is. Most of the folks at the show think the 65 mustang is real old. Just look at the almost new units in attendance. Dont be upset. tell the folks in charge about your truck and its history.I had a very good time the swap meet was down a little but it was a very good show. I was able to tow off the old mustang club headquaters trailer from the swap meet. It will soon become a portable tatoo studio.

Cool, and next year you can bring it back to the show as a vendor.

I was taking pictures and I didn't even see the Sears significance until this thread. It was built from a Sears catalog item and has quite a bit of history. I remember jokingly commenting, "pretty basic truck, makes it easy to drive" to the owners. They seemed in good spirits. I hope to see that truck again. It needed attention from the guys at Sears, but I think most people didn't read the information on the vehicle. I know I didn't until I looked at this picture in detail:


Pictures of the truck in its full glory:

You know, the funny thing is, no one can even steal that car because they won't know how to start and drive it. Spark advance, choke, fuel are all manually controlled.
