2007 Eastern National Meet

Early Ford V8 Club of America

2007 Meet in Review


In the Beginning: NVRG members and spouses work hard to transform the venue of the Eastern National Meet into a little slice of V-8 Heaven.

Registration and Raffles: We were ready when people started to arrive; the hotel had been transformed and the Registration and Sales Room was fully staffed by well-trained volunteers.

Trailers and Tow Vehicles: Some folks drove their V-8s, others came in trailers.

Operational Check: All cars that were going to be judged during the Concourse were given a thorough Operational Check. The Northern Virginia Regional Group wishes to thank the National Capital Regional Group for running the Operational Check for us.

Agenda: View the entire four day agenda of the Meet.

Welcome Party: To get the Eastern National Meet off on the right foot everyone had the opportunity to attend a gala welcome party that included plenty of delicious hors d'oeuvres, great entertainment and fabulous flathead fellowship.

V-8 60 Horsepower Engine: The Northern Virginia Regional Group used a significant portion of its Meet proceeds to acquire and donate a meticulously restored and fully operational V-8 60 to the Early Ford V-8 Foundation.

Out and About: Pictures from all over the Meet including a new perspective of familiar aspects of our beloved V-8s.

Concourse: It takes a lot of work to put on the Concourse from the Operational Check to the Judges and Owners Meeting to the actual judging of the cars.

V-8s Galore!: We had oodles of beautiful V-8s at the Meet. Here we've sorted them by year so that it's easy to find your favorite. If we didn't post a picture of your V-8 at the meet email a couple of photos to us.

Tours: Information and pictures of our professionally guided motor coach tours to Washington DC and the northern Virginia area.

Cross Farm BBQ: We traveled some scenic roads to get to the Cross' JEBRAA Farm in Leesburg. Once there we parked our V-8s in the shade of the trees and wandered over to watch Jim cut some cedar planks on his 1922 Faulkner saw mill. If that didn't interest you there was a Bluegrass band for your listening enjoyment. After we dined on the delicious smoked beef brisket BBQ we had the opportunity to tour Jim and Edna's eclectic collection of antique automobiles or catch up with old friends or make new ones. Ted Wilburn of the Piedmont Regional Group awarded the Bill Widenhouse Memorial Award to Bill and Josie O'Donnell for their 1940 Coupe.

Air & Space Museum: Rain didn't dampen our spirits at the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum's spectacular Udvar-Hazy Center.

Awards: All the awards we presented sorted by Division, Class and Group.

Raffles: Our listings of the Mega-Raffle items and the folks who won them. Also the lucky winner of the 1932 Deuce Roadster Commemorative 75th Anniversary pedal car.
