The Digital V-8 TIMES Edition
At the August 14, 2021, meeting of the Early Ford V-8 Club Board of Directors, a motion was passed to offer Club members a digital version of the V-8 TIMES. Along with the digital version of the V-8 TIMES, a digital National Club Roster will be available. The digital version of the V-8 TIMES looks just like the magazine that you would receive in the mail.
The V-8 TIMES magazine will remain available to anyone who wishes to receive it in the mail. There are no plans or thoughts of phasing out the magazine available through the postal service.
The digital version of the V-8 TIMES is now available to all current members. Due to a delay in the printing and mailing of the September/October 2021 issue, the Board made the decision to move up the availability of viewing the V-8 TIMES digitally. You can view it now, and still receive the printed copy when it is delivered by mail.
You can have access to the digital version, free of charge. Access to the digital version is a free added value to those with current memberships that include the V-8 TIMES. IF YOU HAVE CREATED A USER NAME AND PASSWORD TO THE MEMBERSHIP AREA OF THE CLUB’S WEB SITE, YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN EMAIL ANNOUNCING THAT THE MAGAZINE IS AVAILABLE TO VIEW ONLINE.
Here is how you can see the digital version of the V-8 TIMES: Go to the Club’s web site www.earlyfordv8.org
On the left hand side Menu find and click on Membership. This will take you to Cornerstone Registration’s web site, and our member’s area. Now, if you have created a User Name and Password enter that, if not, use the Register an Account and register for on-line access (your will need to have your membership card). Enter the information and this will put your email address into the membership database for future notifications. Once you have a User Name and Password you can access the digital version of the V-8 TIMES.
Instructions for viewing the on-line version of the V-8 TIMES
1) Sign in with your User Name and Password
2) Click the “On-line magazine” at the top
3) Click on the issue you want to view
4) Click Logout when you are done
Come 2022, when your membership comes up for renewal, you will have options. If you currently have a membership that includes the V-8 TIMES magazine, you can again choose a membership to continue to receive the V-8 TIMES through the mail. If you do, you will also receive, at no additional charge, access to the digital version of the magazine and National Club roster. Again, this depends on if you have created a User Name and Password to the Membership Area.
With all membership renewals starting in 2022, you will also have the option at renewal time to choose the membership that includes ONLY access to the digital V-8 TIMES and digital National Club Roster, and not receive the V-8 TIME and National Club Roster in the mail. This is a new option and the membership with a digital only magazine and roster will be priced at $30 per year (regardless of where in the world you live).
If you live in a part of the world that has unfavorable currency exchange rates which make the membership with the mailed version of the magazine expensive, or in an area with high postal rates, slow postal delivery, or even if you love the magazine but don’t care for magazines cluttering up your penthouse, the digital-only membership might be for you.
How will you know that the digital version of the V-8 TIMES is available for you to view? If you have a membership that includes receiving the V-8 TIMES in the mail or the new digital-only membership, and if you have created a User Name and Password on the membership area, then we have your email address and you will receive an email notification from the Early Ford V-8 Club of America to inform you that the “V-8 TIMES Available On-Line”. The email will contain a “View the magazine button” that will take you to a member’s only area of a secure website. There, you will be able to access the digital version of the V-8 TIMES by entering your Membership Area User Name and Password. Please note that the User Name and Password are case sensitive and need to be entered as you created them.
If you are not sure if you are registered and have login credentials, there is also a link on the login page that will enable you to check if you are.
Access to the digital version of the V-8 Times will be available soon after it goes to the publisher for printing, much sooner than the postal service will deliver it. Everyone will receive the email at once and postal delays will be a non-issue.
To summarize: if you have a membership that includes receiving the V-8 TIMES in the mail, you will still receive it in the mail and receive access to a digital version of the magazine and roster, at no additional cost. When you renew your membership, or if a person is joining the Early Ford V-8 Club for the first time, there will be the option to select a membership to receive only digital access to the magazine and National Club roster, with no printed magazine or roster in the mail, for $30 per year.
CONGRATULATIONS “2021” R.G. CHARTER ANNIVERSARIES !!!
