Default Early Ford V-8 Club of America

I haven't seen an edition of the V8 Times for months. Anyone received one lately ? I was wondering if I fell off the list or the plague has disrupted the process.

The magazine is still coming out. Give cornerstone registration ( (763) 420-7829 ) a call to see if they still have your membership Listed as one that should receive the magazine. I’m pretty sure they can help straighten it out.

Just received my JULY-AUGUST issue a week ago to Australia. Delivery since the covid19 has been rather slow. But in the past several years delivery has been slower that it was some years ago even though we pay for Priority Air mail which is quite expensive these days. Got to the point where international membership is hardly worth the expense considering the magazine is our only club contact. I usually pay for 3 years membership to save a little. Our cost is at least twice the amount that USA members pay. I have been a member since 1971. Have to renew in November so need to decide soon. Regards, Kevin.

When I belonged years ago, sometimes my copies were spotty showing up. I think the mail man was keeping them. I rec'd most issues.

Not as bad as Old Cars Weekly. I liked that weekly paper but delivery was horrible. I averaged one every three weeks at best. I called the office and they assured me they had been sent which I do believe they were. Must have been getting caught in the automated mail separator.

Given the GOP drive to slow mail, it is small wonder we get anything on time. I have one piece that took 62 days to arrive! Junking the high volume sorting machines is a likely culprit, as are the new staff rules. Those of us who live outside the city on RFD routes seem to be at the bottom of the line.

FWIW, I have a slew of old V8Times going back to 1977 for the most part. Pretty mich complete from 1977 up till say 1987-89 then intermittent since then. Anyone interested in lth lot. Make me an offer I can't refuse.

Have to agree guys the postage is not like what it used to be.
I recently received a package from Canada to New Zealand that had a birthday before I received it.
Got sent to NZ twice and returned to canada twice before I received it on the 3rd trip.
A year and 1 day it took.

A couple of years ago I purchased an antique railroad pocket watch from the USA that did the trip 3 times between the USA and Australia before it was finally tracked down. It just boils down to somebody not doing their job correctly or a flawed system. Regards, Kevin.

Likewise, I've been getting my V-8 Times on time, and it's also my favorite.

An offer? Good luck... the value of these is near zero. I might suggest you donate them to the local veterans home or such.

Kube, there's still still some value in the binders, but you are correct about back issues. I had a bunch of spares and gave them to a young guy a few blocks away who now owns a 47 tudor sedan. He was happy to get them. Giving them to younger potential members is a good way to help membership.

I had decided to sell mine about a year ago. I had them back to 1968ish. Most were in the binders. You are correct, the binders sold fast. A few of the very early Times sold but most went to the local Veterans home.

Why get political? No one wants to hear it.
