    To all members, I have been contacted by a producer of a new show. They are looking for a 1966 Yellow Mustang Convertible. I have checked our car directory and do not see one listed. If anyone knows someone who has this Mustang please contact me at president@ gpmc.org

    Anyone going to the car auction in New Castle on Saturday the 21st? If so, I may need a favor if someone could look a car over for me. Thanks, Jason

    October 7, 2017: We were contacted by an MCA member in California who is looking for help. Here is his email: “Hello. I’m an MCA member living in California. I’m starting my first restoration project ever and very excited. I’m currently looking for my project vehicle and I’ve success with local clubs helping me to look at project cars out of area. I’ve identified a vehicle in the Pittsburgh and am wondering if you could see if there is someone in your club who could check out a vehicle for me locally? Thank you in advance, happy to discuss details with someone who might be interested in helping out. Brian” If you can help, please contact him at katzbm@gmail.com.

    This looks like a lot of fun. It’s too bad I’m already committed to an event in central PA that day.

    Last cruise ever tonight — hope to see many of you tonight for what certainly should be a unique evening. It’s really going to be sad to see it go, especially the relationship that we had forged with their leadership over the years. It’s been a great ride though. Get there early tonight! I’ve already seen the flyers that Victory is going to pass out tonight inviting everyone for September cruises and then most importantly next year. At least we have another good venue to go to! RIP Starlite.

    Latest in Hagerty News: A 1990 7-Up Fox-body Mustang just sold in January for $82,500 at Barrett-Jackson. It only had 15 miles on it, but it looks like Fox-body Mustangs have finally arrived as genuine collector cars. Read the story at:

    Hagerty has just published their Spring Edition of “All About Mustangs”. Apparently they’ve decided to publish this quarterly. You can read it here:

    Thanks for Posting Ken, my car is 6 cylinder and white too (but a 67). I just attended the Mustang Club meeting tonight.

    Saw a 2014 MCA edition mustang this past weekend. Is there any collector value on them? It has a strip and lettering along the rocker panel that says MCA. I looked on line and they were v6 only.

    • Jason Uhler says:

      Larry, although future collectability is unpredictable like the stock market, the only sure thing is that the only 2 year old car that has ever been a good investment in the history of the automobile is the ’05-06 Ford GT’s. Otherwise, new cars are a bad investment no matter what. They will all go down before they eventually hit bottom and then hopefully begin to rise. Best case scenario, it would be 15 years before you’d ever get your money back out of it. They are rarer, but everything rare is not extremely desirable, although it usually helps. Given that they are 6-cyl, I personally can’t see them ever being worth much. That said, I could be completely off base. The new car to buy in my mind is one of the 120 or so ’16 Shelby Hertz cars once they hit the market. I may be looking for one myself. Granted they will have been beat on, but cars seldom have the combination of rarity, performance and pedigree/history. With all of those, that’s difficult to not be collectible in due time. Good luck with whatever you decide. Just my 2 cents.

    There’s a good article in the current Hagerty News email (10/17/16) about Mustangs. You can read it here:
    https://contentsharing.net/actions/email_web_version.cfm?&message_id=13590642&user_id=HAGERTY
    Also, there’s a great video on You Tube about the Ford Motor pavillion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, where the Mustang was introduced. You can watch it here:

    Does anyone know of a gasoline station which sells gasoline without ethanol?

    • Jennie says:

      Hi Bill. Try http://www.pure-gas.org. It has listings by state and says that they’re updated monthly. Could be worth checking out. Be sure to read the details for each location. 9/3 update: Ryan Dunbar reports that a gas station on Route 910 across from the miniature train museum sells non-ethanol gas.

    • Ken says:

      Last I heard Rudolph Auto Repair in Gibsonia (on PA-910 across from the miniature railroad museum we went to a couple years ago) carries it. Don’t recall the price, but it’s not cheap. Their phone is 724-443-3177.

    • Jason Uhler says:

      Purvis in Mars is very popular for car collectors, however I’ve heard that they sell out also since they get a lot of people with tractors who buy it also. They are included on the list that Jennie sent.
