EAST BAY BANTER By: Ken Rogers

Hi from East Bay, First, our chapter wishes a “Get Well” to Mike Guerreiro of the Silicon Valley Chapter. Have you sent in your application for the North-South Run? Don’t miss out on this year’s event. The committee is working hard to make this run one you will not forget. Rooms at the host hotel, The Inn At Morro Bay, are going fast. If you have never been to this fine run, you are missing out on a fun weekend. The Easter Run had a good turnout of rods, customs, and F-100’s. The kids enjoyed the Easter Bunny, egg hunt and piñatas. It doesn’t take long to fill your calendar with F-100 shows and car shows. It looks like there’s a busy summer ahead. April 21st members in our chapter made it across the Bay to attend the car show at Menlo-Atherton High School. This was to benefit the baseball program there. We had great weather and a relaxing day. The ball players came around at lunch time and took orders for their BBQ, then later delivered lunch where you were sitting, while the food was still hot. Great idea!! Keep Truckin’ Ken Rogers *****************************************************************************

TRIVIA Last month’s question: The chocolate chip cookie is the official state cookie of which state?

Comments, suggestions, article or photo submissions, advertisements, or any other information, contact:

Jim Dillinger 14552 Horseshoe Dr.

Answer: In 1997 the state of Massachusetts, recognized the chocolate chip cookie as the official state cookie. A third grade class from Somerset proposed the bill honoring the cookie, which was invented in 1930 at the Toll House Restaurant located in Whitman, Massachusetts. (Answered, once again, by Susan Davis, as well as Leanne Robinson, both of the Modesto Chapter)

This Month’s question: Why is the London Stock Exchange sometimes referred to as “Gorgonzola Hall”?

A doctor examining a woman who had been rushed to the Emergency room, took the husband aside and said, “I don’t like the looks of your wife at all.” “Me neither doc”, said the husband. “But she’s a great cook and really good with the kids.” ************************************************************************************

EASTER RUN Sadly, I wasn’t able to make it to the Easter Run this year, and I’m afraid no one has submitted anything that I can use to put together an article to tell you what it was all about. I did, however, get a bunch of pictures from Sue Cox (Delta Chapter), so I’ll show a few of them here so maybe you can get a feel for how it was. I’ve heard that once again, the run was a success and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me. Can you Help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The woman replied, “You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 50 and 60 degrees west longitude.” “You must be an engineer,” said the balloonist. “I am” replied the woman, “how did you know?” “Well,” answered the man, “Everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you’ve haven’t been much help so far.” The woman below responded, “You must be in management.” “I am”, he replied, “But how did you know?” “Well,” said the woman, “You don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air, you made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were before we met, but now, somehow, it’s my fault.” ****************************************************************************************** th th The starting point for the 5 Annual Silicon Valley Cruise, which was held on Saturday, April 28 , was at West Coast Classics and Customs, in Sunnyvale. These good folks host a very laid back gathering on the first Saturday of every month for a couple hours in the morning. The following invitation has been extended to any and all gearheads who might be in the area next Saturday.

MODESTO HAPPENINGS By: Bob Hansen

The Shriners are taking us on a bus trip to the Shriner’s Hospital in Sacramento on May 5th. It was originally planned for April 28th, but due to the Asparagus Festival in Stockton, they were unable to charter a bus for that weekend. A report on our May 5th activities will be coming up. Modesto Chapter and friends met at Denny’s in Modesto for breakfast before caravanning up to the Easter Run at Mikki Grove, put on by Delta Chapter. As usual, a great Spring run! Weather was fantastic, lots of games for kids, and lots of time to lounge in the sun and enjoy the old cars and trucks. The Delta Chapter has done a great job in growing this activity – an increase of about 30% this year, with a showing of around 100 vehicles participating. Attending from the Modesto Chapter were John and Linda Wash, Michael and Leanne Robinson, Chuck Whitaker, Carl Piercefield, Chris Souza, Wayne King, Jim and Elaina Van Vliet and kids, Randy and Colton Hillardes, Tom and Theresa Powell, Rod Stanshaw, and Mike Keller and kids. Everyone had a great time!!

Who’s Working on What Our Back to Graffiti show is coming up in June -- Chris Souza reported that he is 2/3 done with T-shirts, and Linda Walsh is working on dash plaques. Everyone is working on goodie bag donations. The Fruit Yard will have live music with dinner on Friday night with Eric Scudder and the Beer 30 Band. Get your pre-entry soon so you don’t miss out on any of these great activities. Tom Day reports he is ready to start the engine on his ’29, ’30, ’31, ’32 pickup. John Walsh has changed the hood on his ’56 driver. He now has a primer black hood instead of his burgundy hood. He’ll be showing it off at the Silicon Valley run on April 28th.

A group of Americans were traveling by tour bus through Holland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through the process of cheese making, explaining that goats’ milk was used. She showed the group a hillside pasture where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, are the older goats that no longer produce. She then asked, “What do you in America do with your old goats?” A spry old gentleman answered, “They send us on tours.” **************************************************************************************

RECIPE OF THE MONTH Candied Bacon

*************************************************************************************************

5TH ANNUAL SILICON VALLEY CRUISE For the last 5 years the Silicon Valley Chapter has been putting together a premier event that has been a “must attend” affair for a number of people. By its very nature, the Cruise is smaller in numbers than the majority of car gatherings most of us are used to. Each year 30 to 50 very special vehicles, and their occupants, get to cruise the highways and byways of the Silicon Valley. Along the way, there are stops at various locations that provide some interest for the participants. Not everyone gets excited about all of the stops, but it can be said that someone gets excited at all them. One of the goals of the event is to make every effort to bring something different than we usually see at car events, and to try and make it fun for everyone. It would appear, from the feedback received, that this year the Cruise accomplished its goal. Comments heard ranged from “Great”, to “Best One Yet”, to “We Always Have A Fantastic Time At This Run”, to many other remarks along those lines. It’s a truly great feeling to put a lot of effort, time, and money into an event, then have the people you’re doing it for tell you things like that. The Silicon Valley Chapter thanks each and every person that attended, plus the wonderful folks that hosted the various stops, and finally our event sponsors, Tattoozu, A Waterdogs Pool Service, and Domenico Winery. The day started bright and early at West Coast Classics and Customs, in Sunnyvale, with the sign-in/registration. There were plenty of hot coffee and donuts on hand to get everyone jump started. The goody bags were once again filled with a plethora of goodies, including an event dash plaque, a special CD of ‘Oldies’ music, a card for filling in a poker hand along the route to be traveled, and a bunch of other stuff. Everyone had a chance to draw their first poker card of the day, hang out for a while and visit, and then the proprietor of WCC&C picked his favorite vehicle. The winner of the “Favorite” trophy was Don Rose with his 56 F-100.

6


From WCC&C, the group traveled a short way up Highway 101 to the Ames Research Center, which is the home of the NASA Space Museum. There, everyone was treated to a wonderful display of psome of America’s history of space exploration. The museum curator was really pumped seeing all the fabulous vehicles scattered about his parking lot, and after much hand wringing and vacillating he finally decided that Jim Hannett’s F-100 was his favorite of the vehicles there.

A few miles farther up 101 we pulled into the facility housing Victor Aviation. This is a company that got its start rebuilding piston driven, internal combustion airplane motors. They have some very special and very unique processes they use to test and improve the metals used in the engines, which ultimately increase the life of the motors by at least twice, as well as improve performance. Over the years, the processes they’ve pioneered have been utilized in other industries, including automotive racing, all with great success. The President and CEO, Victor Sloan, was on hand to take everyone through their shops, and explain (in very understandable terms, by the way) just what it is they do. I think most of us left there with a real sense of awe about their processes, and an appreciation for the impact they’re having on the automotive industry. Before we left, Victor took a walk through the parking lot, and was smitten by John Segreto’s 31 Model A sedan, and awarded his “Favorite” trophy to John. (My apologies to John, as well as all of you. I didn’t get a picture of John’s cool, purple hot rod, or of the awarding of the trophy.) After leaving Victor Aviation we once again got on 101 North, and traveled to San Carlos to Gary Pollack’s “The Great Highway.” This is a private collection of some great hot rods, customs, and cruisers, as well as some really neat automotive memorabilia. We spent about an hour there just checking things out, wiping the drool off our chins, and wishing that just one or two of his cars were parked in our garage. Gary is a great guy that likes to share his collection with other car lovers, and when asked to pick his “Favorite”, he chose Wally Wallace’s blue F-100.

Less than a mile away from “The Great Highway” was our final stop for the day, Domenico Winery. From the outside, one would be hard pressed to imagine what a perfect place this is for an event like ours to end up at. There was ample room for the delicious Mexican buffet that was prepared for all the Cruise participants, the multiple tables full of raffle prizes that were awarded, and the near 30 foot long wine tasting bar at one end of the building. 7


Following the lunch, the 50/50 raffle was held, the prizes were awarded for the best ($50) and the worst ($25) poker hands, and additional “Favorite” trophies were awarded. Those were sponsored by, and awarded to: Chayo’s Buffet (the caterer)………………….Ken Roger’s 56 F-100 Domenico Winery……………………………..Ken Harden’s 69 (I think) El Camino A Waterdogs Pool Service……………………Mike Jones’ 67 Mustang Tattoozu………………………………………..Carlos Harvey’s 57 Bel Air The finale’ of the day was the raffling off of a multitude of fantastic prizes. This was done a little differently this year, in that rather than picking a prize then pulling a ticket to see who would receive said prize, the ticket was drawn first, and whoever had that number got to pick whichever prize they wanted from what was left on the tables. While that obviously eliminates any anticipation about who will finally win the so-called “bigger prizes”, it seems that there were a lot more people that were happy because they won something they actually wanted. All in all, it was a great day of fun, friends, cars, food, and prizes. We hope everyone went away happy that they participated, and again, the Silicon Valley Chapter wants to thank everyone involved. Don’t forget to mark your calendars th for the last Saturday in April, 2013 for the 6 Annual Silicon Valley Cruise. ***********************************************************************************

4/14/12 EXECUTIVE BOARD MEETING The quarterly meeting of your F-100 Elite Executive Board was held on Saturday, April 14th, again at Perko’s Café in Tracy. All the chapters were represented. After the acceptance of the minutes as presented, and the treasurer’s report was given, a discussion was had to bring the information about the North-South Run up to date. Art Davis had more information to present regarding the Friday night cruise and ice cream social. Earl Pecka requested funds for the deposit on the trophies and dash plaques. Jim Dillinger discussed the proposed event program (it looks like there’s enough interest in advertising space in the program to make it possible to go ahead and have it printed). Leanne Robinson requested that everyone go back to their chapter’s and spread the word that she’s trying to get pictures of everyone’s trucks, finished or not, posted on the web site. If your truck isn’t posted, send her a picture and 9


she’ll get it posted. You can e-mail her a photo at true2rwb@comcast.net . She also requested funds to pay the annual assessment for our web site. Karen Kleinert is still working on gathering information to put together some sort of information sheet on the club history. She hopes to have more information at the next meeting. She is also working on trying to gather information about costs, etc., to produce club plaques as well as decals. Someone asked about license plate frames and John Walsh stated he still has a bunch of them left, and they’re available for $8 per set. Some questions about how to retain members who have sold their trucks, or how to include people that want to participate but haven’t found a truck they want or can purchase yet. After tossing about a bunch of ideas and comments, it was agreed that it is time to change the membership requirements from “owning a Ford commercial vehicle, years 1928 through 1966”, to something to the effect of “an appreciation of or interest in Ford commercial vehicles”. While it was voted at the meeting to move forward with making that change, checking with the club’s by-laws shows that this proposal must be voted on by the membership. To that end, I will put together an amendment and send it out to each of the chapter president’s so an election can be held. A short discussion of each of the upcoming events that are sponsored by the various chapter’s was held. Art Davis asked that if there is anyone interested in helping out with the car show at the Return To Kingdon event, please contact him. There are some perks that event workers receive. Check with Art and he will fill you in. Nancy Agrusa requested that any and all suggestions for venue, activities, and whatever else anyone might like to make regarding the Anniversary Run be submitted to her by the July E-Board meeting. The final details for that event will be worked out at that meeting. It was th brought up that the A & W in Lodi has a cruise night on Thursday nights, and that June 14 will be F-100 night. They’re st also having a car show on October 21 , and have issued a special invitation to F-100 Elite to participate. Contact Art Davis for more information. Nancy reminded everyone that Fun Ford Sunday is on September 9th, at the Antioch Fairgrounds. F-100 Elite has been a contributor to that event for several years. The next E-Board meeting will be on Saturday, July 14th. As always, it’ll be at Perko’s Café in Tracy, and starts at 9:00 AM. Any member that would like to attend is welcome to do so. *****************************************************************************
