92 Feature Car Literature Update

Ryan (Rare_92) scanned the Vitamin See article from the November 1992 issue of Mustang & Fords. I have updated my ’92 article page to include it. I previously just had a really bad picture of the article that I grabbed off of ebay. This is one issue I don’t own yet so I really appreciate Ryan’s effort to get this to me.

I also did some slight updates to the index of articles to include the magazine covers for the issues. Even though the covers don’t include feature cars, I thought they were valuable because if you are looking for these issues on ebay these might be helpful to you. I know they help me. Sellers don’t always include the issue contents that allow you to confirm you are looking at the right issue but they almost always include the cover.

  1. Interesting timing. I was digging through some of my old Mustang mags tonight looking for 92 articles. I will email you some of my findings but I have a few MM&FF I set aside with 92 and 93’s but I can not find them right now.

    Also I have some great video from the 1993 Ford Motorsport Nationals in Maple Grove PA. I had a 89 GT vert at the time I took to show and race. They had approx. 50+ triple whites there. It is pretty amazing seeing a long line of them. At the end of the show they all drove down the drag strip. I remember they put a sticker over the 5.0 badges with the FMSN logo on all of the cars. There was a TWF in my neighborhood and the owner had one of those cars and the sticker was still present. Unfortunately I can not find any pictures but dont know how to best get some pics off a VHS. Any suggestions?

  2. I do the same searching that you describe. It takes a lot of patience! One thing that drives me crazy is that I remember seeing an ad in Mustang Monthly in the 93-94 time frame for feature car floor mats. Some place had a bunch of them. Not that having that ad is worth anything but just knowing that it’s out there and I can’t find it is what bugs me.

    That video sounds great. I suppose digitizing the whole video is the best approach. The obvious problem is connecting an old VCR to a computer. One way is with a video capture card. A few months ago I was fooling around with just that. I was experimenting with ZoneMinder for video camera surveillance. Or, looking at my Mustang from anywhere; yeah, it was a long winter ;). Instead of buying a new video capture card for my experimentation, I found that I could use an old ATI TV Wonder card that I already had. The one I have is a few years old and currently sells for around $5 on ebay. It has both coax and s-video inputs (not true s-video but an 8 DIN input that can be connected via an adapter to s-video or composite.) I don’t see any reason why a VCR couldn’t be connected to this setup.

  3. I’ll have to check that out. I was thinking a little more on the subject last night. I have a DVD recorder. I could burn a DVD and then load it up on my computer. Then I can pull a few frames. I was also thinking of a technique that could work, play the video on my Plasma, and snap a picture with my digital camera?? That could also work for a quick look. I’ll send them when I get the video up.

  4. Taking a picture of the Plasma would definitely do. I am not sure how to get the best results, though. I have seen some really good ones on avsforum.com when people were showing their setups. Although, a quick search there didn’t result in a ‘how to’. Might take some experimentation but I think the results could be pretty good under the right conditions.

  5. Well.. Thats really nice of you to say all of that.. 🙂 I am just tryin to help make this sight a little better… You have done all of the hard part and you have most of the stuff… I will always be looking for new ads or articles on all of the features!
    Thanks again John for all that you do to keep this website so great!
