Founded in San Leandro, California in 1963, our club recognizes all Ford Motor Company vehicles made between 1932 and 1953, including Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, commercial vehicles, tractors and other Ford powered vehicles built around the world utilizing the 4, 6, 8, and 12 cylinder engines produced by Ford Motor Company.
Today, as the Marquee Club of our represented vehicles, with membership of over 9,000 and 125 Regional Groups worldwide, we are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of all Ford Motor Company vehicles built between 1932 and 1953.
The club's award-winning, bi-monthly magazine, the V-8 Times, is circulated all over the world and is acclaimed as one of the best car club magazines anywhere. The V-8 Times features technical articles, shop tips, questions and answers by our panel of experts, nostalgia, club and regional group news, offerings of accessories and restoration manuals found nowhere else - plus classified ads for cars and parts.
If you're not already a member, we invite you to Join Today and explore the works of the Early Ford V-8 Club of America.

The Club is looking for an “Editor-In-Waiting”. This individual would be able to “step in” and finish the next issue of the V-8 TIMES should, for some reason; I was unable to do it. They would also be at the front of the line to assume the Editor position when I step down.
Here are some basic requirements for this position:
Proficient in the use of Quark/InDesign publishing programs
Proficient in the use of Photoshop
Background in journalism (Writing)
Experience in layout and design (Newsletter Editor experience)
Handle submissions from members in a variety of formats
Some knowledge of the Ford Motor Company from 1932-1953 (1954 Canada)
There’s a LOT of other tasks that would be handled by the Editor in preparation of the magazine for printing.
If you’re interested, contact me and we can discuss.
The Editor’s job involves total dedication to the magazine and requires many hours of preparation of current and future issues. It’s a full time commitment and one not to be taken lightly.
They say for many members, the magazine IS the Early Ford V-8 Club.

CONGRATULATIONS “2021” R.G. CHARTER ANNIVERSARIES !!!
The Hi-Country Regional Group, sponsors of the 2020 WNM, is offering for sale two items that were produced for the meet that never happened. As we all know the COVID-19 Pandemic got in the way, and the meet had to be cancelled. For that reason, the following items are unique.
First: We have very attractive and fully functional 15 oz white ceramic coffee mugs, which feature a full color Alamosa 2020 Meet logo on one side, and a distinctive legend (but not for the reason we had originally intended) on the other side. These are very sturdy mugs that will work well with the beverage of your choice. You will be pleased to have one (or more) of these mugs. The mugs come individually wrapped in a sturdy, protective box, and cost $10.00 each (USA funds). In-country shipping will cost $10.00 and that will cover one or two mugs. If you are possibly interested in more than two mugs, or if we will need to ship out of the country, please contact us. Contact information is shown below.
Second: We do have some gear shift knobs that were produced by Carpenter Industries for the meet. These are 1939 Ford style floor shift type knobs, taffy tan in color, with a multi-colored metal meet logo inset into the top of the knob. For those of you who actively collect meet gear shift knobs, you will definitely need one of these knobs. The knobs are priced at $20.00 each (USA funds), with a $5.00 in-country shipping charge. If there will be a need to ship out of country, please contact us for shipping costs.
We hope to hear from lots of you. If you want to use a check (USA funds), which we encourage, please make it out to the Hi-Country Regional Group, and briefly indicate what you are purchasing on the check for/note line. Thanks in advance.
Please see attached file for pictures of the items.
