Hi From East Bay, th On October 5 we had 7 trucks show up at Dino’s Diner in Newark for the cruise to the Los Altos Art and Wine Festival and Car Show. East Bay member Gil Fletcher led the way, since he works for the City of Los Altos and knew all the right streets to travel to get to the show. We had nice weather, 81 degrees all day long. There were lots of folks checking out the car show. East Bay member, Don Rose, received an award for his 56 F-100. th On October 11 there were 5 F-100’s that showed up at Wally & Judy Wallace’s home for the cruise to the car show at the Colusa Casino. The drive took a little over 2 hours to get to the casino, and the F-100’s got a lot of looks and thumbs up as we cruised the highways. We stayed 2 days and sure had a good time. Robert & Ruth Martinez were the big winners at the slot machines. We all enjoyed the weekend and we even made it home in time to watch a little football. We’re looking forward to the Pumpkin Run, presented by the Livermore Chapter, as well as the Vets Run. We wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving, and hope you enjoy your family on this day. Kenny Rogers East Bay Chapter P.S. Some fun Thanksgiving facts: About 280 million turkeys are sold in the U.S. for the Thanksgiving celebration; Californians are the largest consumers of turkey in the U.S.; It takes 75 to 80 pounds of feed to raise a 30 pound turkey; Turkey consumption has increased 116% since 1970; A turkey’s head changes colors when they get excited; and, Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird of the United States. Some interesting tire care facts: 27% of passenger cars, and 32% of pickup trucks, SUV’s, and minivans have at least one significantly under inflated tire; 9% of the tires on the road are bald; A tire can lose as much as 50% of its inflation pressure and not appear to be flat; Inflation pressure in a tire goes up in warm weather, and down in cold weather one to two pounds for every 10 degrees of temperature change. *******************************************************************************

DON’T FORGET TO SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK AN HOUR ON SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 3rd ******************************************************************************

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.”


TRIVIA Last month’s question: ). Who was the first president to ride in an automobile, when (year), and what kind of car was it. Answer: Hi Jim, Hope this is the right answer. The first president to ride in an automobile would be William McKinley (1897 - 1901). It was a Stanely Steamer which was built in the late 1890's. Hope this is right...... Good Luck Bob Hansen.......Susan Davis, Modesto This month’s question: What American luxury automaker began by making cages for birds and squirrels? ***********************************************************************************************

Modesto Happenings By: Bob Hansen th

The Modesto Chapter gathered for the end of summer Club Appreciation Lunch on Sunday, October 6 at the home of Ken and Ruth Stone. Again this year, the Stone’s opened their beautiful ranch home in Winton for the potluck lunch and get-together. Barbecued tri-tip and an array of potluck sides and desserts helped make it a festive occasion. Attending were John and Linda Walsh, Ken and Ruth Stone, Bob and Susan Hansen, Michael and Leanne Robinson, Mike Kellar, with Nathaniel, Bailey, and Logan, Gary and Peggy Wika, Tom and Cheryl Day, Dusty Johnson with Mackenzie and Connor.


Besides the great lunch fare, it was a pleasantly sunny day to enjoy the company of fellow club members. The baby was happy, the kids did a little tractor work on the ranch, and the guys gathered in the shop to discuss current projects and give lots and lots of advice. Thanks again Ruth and Ken

The end of October brought the always-fun Pumpkin Run!! Modesto enjoyed the hospitality of Livermore Chapter for another year of fun and camaraderie at the Pumpkin Patch and Del Valle Park. Club members as well as guest were welcomed by the Pumpkin Patch for a fun time. Kids and adults alike enjoyed picking out pumpkins, fun activities, and the hay maze. 4

Then off to Del Valle Park -- kids and adults enjoyed the leisurely lunch, car show, and raffle. As always the kids were the focus for Halloween treats, including a costume contest and pi単ata. Thanks to Nancy for a great job hosting


this event – and a special thanks to chefs Jose Ramos, Bill Hernandez, and Raphael Rodrigues for their grilling expertise. The barbecue and numerous side dishes and desserts were mouth-wateringly delicious. The warm sunshine was enjoyed by many and encouraged a little snooze after lunch. The great afternoon wrapped up with special one-ofa-kind hand-made awards and hugs from Nancy.

Attending from Modesto Chapter were John and Linda Walsh, Dusty and Debbie Johnson, Jerrilynn Marez with Mackenzie and Connor, Bob and Susan Hansen, Michael and Leanne Robinson, Tom Tomberlin, Jim and Austin Van Vliet, and friends of the club Tom and Theresa Powell, with Christie and granddaughter, and our Patterson friends Glen


Saunders with his ’65 Chevelle, George Richmond with his ’49 Ford convertible, and Don Renfrow with is ’46 business coupe.

This is the true story of George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi, who was going to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the shed. George opened the door to go turn off the light but saw there were people in the shed in the process of stealing things. He immediately phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" and George said no and explained the situation. Then they explained that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be there when available. George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again. "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just shot them all." Then he hung up. Within five minutes three squad cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up. Of course, the police caught the burglars red-handed. One of the policemen said to George: "I thought you said that you'd shot them!" George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!" ***************************************************************************************

We want to thank everyone for all your Thoughts and Prayers for Howard during his recovery time. It is still a shock as he looks at his large incision on his chest. But we know we did the right thing and took the gallbladder out when he did. He was a trooper and was back to work after 3 weeks. Besides staring at the panel in the garage and not being able to work on it was weighing heavily on his heart. As this did not get into the newsletter last month, we want to thank John Walsh, Dusty Johnson, Michael Robinson and Leanne Steadman from Modesto Chapter. A GREAT BIG THANK YOU for helping us out at our Kingdon Car Show th th on September 7 . We had over 100 cars come out for the 8 Annual Kingdon Drags and Car show. We tried something different on Sunday with a car show for import cars. We will have to rethink this idea, as it did not go over quite as well as we thought it would. We had positive feedback from people in the area and they were all for it. But in the end it was a bomb. Which was kind of disheartening as all the proceeds went to Welcome Home Heroes. We also thought it would have been good to promote the drag strip as most of the people that drive imports were still in diapers when the strip was active. Oh, well their loss. At least the car owners had a great time on Saturday. It was a little warm but at least the breezes started kicking up just around the time we gave out the awards. The winners got to do a parade lap down the strip and show off their cars to the crowd. All and all it was a great day for the car enthusiast. The anniversary run was to be our day to shine as the raffle workers. We want to give a shout out of thank you for all that helped Art out in his hour of need. It is hard to believe that 75 percent of the year is already gone and 2014 is just around the corner. But we still have plenty to keep us busy till the end of the year. The final chapter run of the year is now a memory. It was a great turn out for the Livermore Pumpkin Run and fun was had by ALL that came to the run. Our friend and worker bee Mario Vanotti came with us with a friend. It was a total shock when they called him up for a special award. Now he did get one for his car but Livermore chapter presented him, as did the total body of Northern California F-100 Elite, with a commendation award for all his help he has given Livermore with donations as did the F-100 body for all his hard work he has done at past events (especially North South). He was deeply touched and mentioned that he loves us all and even though he does not have a truck (as of yet). He feels right at home with everyone and enjoys himself every time he comes to our events. 8

We want to give out a shout to everyone to check out the flyer for our fun time in Columbia State Park. We had a great time last year that we decided to do it again. It was a rainy day but it did not hamper our spirit of going. Now this is not a car show run or the type of run you actually have to bring your truck. This is for you the driver, a day to have fun with good company. We will leave Wendy’s in Manteca at 8:00 to drive up Highway 120. As like last year we will try to eat at the old hotel for lunch. If time allows we will probably go over to Jamestown and check out the shops there too. If you have any questions give Art or Howard a call. Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and we hope to see everyone sooner than later. *******************************************************************************************

Sorry, nothing from Livermore this month. ***************************************************************************************** A Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail. Meanwhile.....somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read: To: My Loving Wife Subject: I've Arrived Date: 16 May 2003 I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was. P.S. Sure is hot down here! ****************************************************************************************



San Joaquin F100's Apple Hill run was great fun. The weather was perfect. We left Tracy about 8:30 am and didn't get home until 8:30pm. The views were beautiful and there was lots of arts and crafts to look at. I think most of us ended up bringing home something special. We had a delicious BBQ lunch at High Hill Ranch and stopped at Mel's Diner in Placerville on the way home for dinner. Hope next year we have more members join us.

****************************************************************************************** A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door. When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, Genesis 3:10." Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid, for I was naked."
