September 20th Newsletter

  Hi Everyone,

How are you all doing? Thank goodness the heat has broken a bit, I really didn't know how many more 100 degree days I could handle. One good thing we've got to look forward to is that Saturday Septemember 22 is the Autumnal Equinox or first day of Fall, let's all hope this brings us much more comfortable temps. This will also mean that the days will be getting shorter, now that will be a little sad but I'll take it. Also, I'd like to let everyone know that we've got a bunch of new pics from recent car shows up on our website now and also some really cool videos, so be sure to check them out at Just click the SHOW GALLERIES tab for slideshows of car shows or scroll down our HOME page to our YOUTUBE button and click that to go to our SPEED SHOP channel.

Now let's see what we've got coming up..... On Sunday Septmember 23 is one of our favorite events of the year, the 16th Annual Mustangs At The Queen Mary in Long Beach presented by the Beach Cities Mustang Club. The special guest for this years event will be Vaughn Gittin, Jr. For those of you not familar with Vaughn,he is a professional drifter who currently competes in the Formula D series in his 2011 Falken Tire Ford Racing Mustang. When he's not competing, Vaughn performs drifting demonstrations for Ford in his personal Ford Mustang RTR at events all over the nation. He also performs drifting demonstrations worldwide with his fellow members of Drift Alliance. This is one of the biggest shows throughout the year and is dedicated primarily to the ultimate California Muscle Car, the Mustang, with the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop and the awesome Queen Mary right there. There will be many classes judged, including Factory Stock, Personalized, Modified, Shelby Classes, Specialty & V6 Mustangs, Billitt Regionals, plus other Ford classes such as Ford GT, Thunderbird, Linclon/Mercury and Ford Truck and with over 250 trophies awarded. You can check out pics from their previous shows on our website. If you are a Mustang lover (and really, who isn't) I highly recommend this show, and go early and wear your walking shoes because it will be huge. We are proud to have the BCMC as one of the clubs that we display on our website, you can check out their club under the CLUBS tab.
