May 2018 Program Meeting – Preventing Auto Theft & Enjoying Our Vehicles More
This month we will present an update on auto theft and crime trends in Albuquerque. Last year we experienced almost 9,000 vehicles stolen in Albuquerque. We are currently still in the top ten in the nation for auto theft per capita. We will review the auto theft trends, what are the most commonly stolen vehicles, who steals them, where they go, where are the hot spots (locations), why we have more thefts, and maybe most importantly, what we can do to protect our vehicles & property.
Protecting our vehicles can be as simple as locking them, the Club, installing hidden ignition switches, etc. There are also various high tech solutions available. We are fortunate to have Jim & Rick from the Driver’s Den visit us this month to describe some of these high tech options including sophisticated alarms and trackers. And as a bonus, they will describe some great options to increase enjoyment of our vehicles, such as back-up cameras, dash cams, stereos, satellite radios, amplifiers (so hard of hearing people like myself can enjoy their rap CDs), etc. Driver’s Den is one of Albuquerque’s oldest and most experienced sellers and installers of all things electronic. I can personally attest to these folk’s expertise.
So come on down for a good time and bring your questions and a friend!
May 12 Activity
The activity for May is a driving tour to Santa Fe to view the collections of Larry Icerman. You will recall that Larry was our featured speaker within the last year, talking about the Santa Fe Concorso, of which he was a founder. He owns a number of fine and unusual cars, including a 1936 Hudson Deluxe 8 business coupe, a 1928 Locomobile sedan, a 1936 Chrysler convertible sedan, a 1925 Chrysler roadster, and a 1927 Whippet. As an extra benefit, Larry has invited his friends in the Classic Car Club of America to join us at the two locations he stores his cars. Assuming they drive their classics, we will get treated to a fantastic display.
We will start the tour at 9:00 on Saturday, May 12, at the Smiths Grocery at Tramway and Central, and take the old Highway 14 to Santa Fe. That's a great way to enjoy your old Ford. I will hand out directions to all tourers, and we will plan to caravan to Larry's. Larry will join us for lunch at one of his favorite haunts there. You don't want to miss this opportunity, as Larry does not open his collection often.
May Birthdays and Anniversaries

APRIL PRESIDENT’S LETTER
R. Jeff Jackson
After the wonderful presentation by Larry Azevedo on Edsel Ford I did some more reading and found Edsel a very interesting fellow albeit dominated by his father Henry. The end of one article had the following summary by a Ford historian.
In conclusion, I think a statement made in 1970 by Mr. Henry Edmunds, Director of the Ford Archives, pretty well sums things up when he said:
"Edsel was responsible for many good things in the Company's history - insistence on verve and dash in product styling, on a reliable and safer product, on fair and courteous relationships with dealers and the public. He possessed an unquenchable sense of fitness, an insistence on doing the right thing. A single instance among many would be his little-known achievement in making Ford Overseas a strong segment in the Ford marketing empire. He did all the essential things that Henry refused to do, and consequently held the Company together during several crisis periods in the 1930's. In true retrospect, he seems less a tragic figure than popularly supposed. Without him, the Company might never have attained the solid image it was today."
Isn’t the history of the cars we follow today interesting? I guess that’s one of the reasons we pamper and diddle with our cars and love to drive them. Speaking of driving, we are excited to participate in the Southern New Mexico tour that our club is hosting. Jay is doing a bang up job of getting us organized. Participation by the Model A club members is a big attraction. Now is the time to start your detailed planning and fixing up your car for that tour or for one of our shorter weekend events. Like the May 12th tour to see Larry Icerman’s collection near Santa Fe. I hope we have good representation at that event also.
And, speaking of fixing up your car the club is still interested in work days where we can get together and spread some grease on our hands hoping some of it goes in or on the right place on that member’s car. Let’s discuss again at the May meeting if we can find time to help each other out.
May’s meeting topic is car theft. Goodness knows around here auto theft is taken too lightly and costs us all too much in insurance premiums. Maybe most thefts aren’t our cherished older cars, nevertheless knowing how to limit auto theft is a benefit to us all. Looking forward to Joe’s presentation. Please consider inviting a friend (Flathead guy/gal or not) to this meeting because the topic is a benefit for all of us.
Concluding on a personal note, thanks to Joe’s wide audience I now have a 1946 Ford Tudor sedan. I haven’t started it yet but the basic car looks sound and has a humongous rear seat just waiting to be stuffed with stuff for tours. No, it isn’t bone stock original, but that’s part of the attraction of the Flathead Ford group. We relish original but aren’t too snooty to appreciate modifications as long as the engine has no pushrods. Cheers ‘till next time.
Minutes of the April 3rd, 2018 Meeting
Secretary, Beth Jackson
President Jeff called the meeting to order at 7:06 pm and welcomed the 20 members present. All reported receiving the monthly newsletter. Treasurer Dave is traveling so there was no treasurer’s report. The minutes of the previous meeting were approved as printed in the newsletter.
Thanks to George and Jackie for providing the refreshments. The For Sale/Wanted ads were passed around for additions and deletions.
Old Business: Joyce reported for the Car Council. The May 20th Museum Car Show featuring Imports is looking for volunteers to help. Joyce brought posters for members to take and post in their place of business to advertise the show. Car Appreciation Day will be held July 13th or 14th with an activity at Enchanted Trails Drive In Movie.
Jeff asked how members enjoyed meeting with the Chevy Club and Ray said it was excellent and Joyce said she enjoyed it. Vi Chavez-Cropp volunteered to provide the recipe for the May newsletter.
Jay reported on the Southern New Mexico National Tour planning. A member of the Poco Quatros who is also a Chevy Club member asked if the Model A’s could join our tour. The National Club Tour Director said that was acceptable and that there is a $5 associate membership that the Model A Club Members can purchase. Please see the article in the May newsletter for tour details or go to the club website.
A discussion was held again on buying bricks from the National Ford V8 Foundation in memory of deceased members each year. After a prolonged discussion, agreement was reached and the motion was made, seconded and passed unanimously to purchase one brick per calendar year and have the name of each deceased member, spouse, former member that has passed away that year engraved on the brick. If there are too many names for a 4 x 8 brick, an 8 x 8 brick will be purchased instead. At the time that a member or associated person passes away, a condolence letter will be sent to the family informing them of the brick purchase at the end of the year. Everyone agreed they did not mind sharing a brick with others and that this was a decision that allowed multiple names to be engraved on a brick without having strict guidelines to choose those names. This is essentially the same conclusion reached in 2014.
New Business: Membership renewal of $25 is due. New rosters will be sent out in May.
Jeff had plaques from the February SuperNationals to give to Chris Joiner and Richard Polk.
April’s breakfast will be in conjunction with the Spring Thaw event at the Old Car Garage on Saturday, April 21st. May’s breakfast will actually be a tour of Larry Icerman’s collection in Santa Fe followed by lunch. Please see the May newsletter for details.
The club is encouraging attendance at the May 20th Museum Car Show. Please see the May newsletter for details.
The Annual Club Birthday Party and Picnic will be held on Memorial Day, May 28th at the Los Ranchos Village Hall and is being chaired by Joe Abbin. See the newsletter for details.
Jeff asked if anyone wanted to volunteer their car to be worked on at the Club workday suggested for Saturday, April 28th. There were no volunteers. There was a suggestion that we do distributors one day, carburetors another. Joe offered to set up a time for bringing distributors to his shop for demonstrations and self repair.
The May meeting will have a program on Car Theft Prevention, very timely for Albuquerque citizens. Joe will head this up. Ray Calderon will provide refreshments.
The featured member last month was Philip Lovato. George Abernathy agreed to be featured member in May.
Joe reported that Clyde Bangiola had gotten Art’s ’57 up and running and is very happy with it.
Joe held the raffle, followed by Larry Azevedo lecturing on Edsel Ford. Very informative, thank you Larry.

Museum of Albuquerque Car Show
The big show of the year is close. I'm referring, of course, to the Council of Car Clubs show on Sunday, May 20, at the Museum of Albuquerque. This show generally attracts about 350 vehicles of all types, this year spotlighting foreign makes. It's the most awaited event of the year. And a great place to see your friends, renew acquaintances, and meet new hobbyists. Let's plan to show our cars together as a club, in usual fashion, by driving in and parking together. To do that, we will gather at the parking lot of Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town at 7:00 and come in as a group. Registration forms have been emailed to you for your convenience. Your $10 admission fee will be collected at the gate. This will be a chance to also see the model cars, car-related art work, and the museum's own exhibits, all at no additional charge. A great day in a great venue. Hope to see you there!
October National Driving Tour Update
Tour planning is well underway for our national driving tour in October. All routes have been selected and all motels have blocked out rooms for us. We will be joined on the tour by a contingent from the Poco Quatros Model A Club. What a nice way to see some historic and beautiful sites with a caravan of antique Fords. Along the way, we will see the Trinity Site, Billy the Kid historical areas, Valley of Fires, Fort Stanton, the Air and Space Museum in Alamogordo, some fine museums in Roswell, White Sands, and, of course, Carlsbad Caverns, a natural wonder, among others. The routes have been especially selected to assure not only great eating and touring, but also easy driving conditions along scenic byways . The tour will begin the evening of Friday, October 5, in Socorro, and end with a banquet following the Carlsbad Caverns tour on Wednesday, October 10, with a leisurely drive back home the following day. Please mark your calendars and begin tuning up your Ford. You will kick yourself if you miss this tour.

Recipe of the Month by Vi Chavez-Cropp
Pumpkin Dump Cake
1 – 29 oz. can pure pumpkin
1 – 12 oz. can evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
¼ cup melted margarine
Mix first six ingredients until well blended, and pour batter into a 9’’ x 13’ greased pan. Sprinkle cake mix on top and then cover with pecans. Pour melted margarine over top. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.
This is really good using spice cake or white plus walnuts instead of pecans.
Featured Member of the Month – George Abernathy
George is a native New Mexican, born and raised in Las Cruces where he attended New Mexico State. He attended Veterinary school at Oregon State, Washington State and Idaho State. He met Jackie (an Oklahoman raised in Texas) and they were married in 1990. They were looking for a vet clinic to buy and George’s sister in Albuquerque suggested one so they came to New Mexico and purchased one. Sunrise Veterinary Clinic is on Rio Rancho Blvd and keeps George extremely busy. They are raising 3 sons and a daughter (whose wedding is in June) and started restoring cars as an activity for the whole family. They are working on a ’46 Ford and have a running ’38 that still needs a few things. Their garage is loaded with motor bikes, four wheelers, and other vehicles he and his sons are restoring. George said he joined the Tumbleweed V8 Club because he didn’t know what he was doing and wanted information on the ’46. He is happy with the club’s assistance and membership expertise. George stays active in his spare time, which isn’t much, and is suffering from the same fate as everyone who builds a car from ground up. It takes much longer than expected and costs much more than desired. But he’s pleased that he’ll know his ’46 from the ground up when completed.
Former Tumbleweed member, Pat Casias, passed away March 28, 2018, at the age of 90. He was born in Rainsville, NM, (north of Las Vegas, near Mora) and was a lifelong resident of New Mexico. Pat owned and restored a 1940 Ford coupe and a 1935 Ford coupe, in addition to an early 40's Chevrolet. His 1935 had an intricate hand-tooled leather interior that Pat created himself. He took his cars to many shows until the last few years. He was also a regular vendor at local swap meets, selling extra parts. Pat also started Mi Sueno Studio in his garage, coached Mile Hi Little League and was an amateur photographer for high school sports. He served in the US Air Force during the Korean War. Pat was an electrical engineer and retired from AMPEX Corp. Pat loved jokes and swapping stories with his friends; he had lots of these. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.

Jokes of the Month
From Readers’ Digest
After a lengthy course on improving computer skills, a teacher finally seemed to get the hang of it. In fact, he admitted in his self-evaluation, “computers have simplified and shortened my life.”
The day I knew my in-laws had finally accepted me: As we pulled into their driveway, my father-in-law was on the phone. “Oh, I have to run,” he told the person on the other end. “My daughter-in-law and her husband just arrived.”
Just as she was celebration her 80th birthday, our friend received a jury-duty notice. She called the clerk’s office to remind them that she was exempt because of her age. “You need to come in and fill out the exemption forms,” the clerk said. “But I filled them out last year,” she replied. “You have to fill them out every year.” “Why? Do you think I’m getting younger?”
