  • Promoting and growing the VFF

    I had the opportunity this past week to speak to a group of folks about the vff and what we are about here that many people here are very knowledgeable and willing to help especially new folks with their first car or restoration. I said folks here will help you not just say use the search section, well if you are new how do you know what to search for? I passed out key rings and cards to all the participants a few asked for more cards to distribute and talk about the vff at their club meetings. One of the participants from the barn said he followed the post that Mitch and I had made there and wondered what happened a few knew the whole story and pretty much stopped over there I said give us a try it has a new fresh approach with a user friendly administrator. The response from these people amazed me as they kept asking me questions and made comments all week about they look forward to seeing what we are about so hopefully some of these folks will join us.

      NICE but don't get caught
      It only takes one person to turn you in to the gestapo

      When i started the VFF i PM'ed links 4 hours the first night and then 6 hours the following day. I am sure many of you here today may have received one back then

      Promotion is vital. FWIW I will be in a judged competition tomorrow with 300+ antique cars. I have a couple of dozen VFF cards that I leave on the running board within sight of my lawn chair (which I hope will be in the shade). When someone stops by with questions, I engage them, encourage their antique car interests, stress the importance of the Ford to early 20th century society, show them my period Ford tools and give them a VFF business card (courtesy of Mitch). Ask Mitch for the cards. He's a soft touch!

        Mitch, There are about 50 members in our club, the Grape Country A's. I would like to hand out your cards at one of our meetings.

      Passed out 7 cards this weekend. Took 10 for chance encounters with other Ford guys. Sent a card to Norm Langlios in the parts he bought last week. Unfortunately the guy who bought up most of my 16" Ford wheels was using them for custom bikes, so no card in his 5 boxes of rims. Think so far I have gotten rid of around 30 of the cards you sent.

      As for spreading the word via PM's on the other site be careful as the SOB has his plants among people you would not sespect. Just saying. But being BANNED over there isn't all bad. Rod

        I never knew alienating people and being a jerk was a successful business plan,The aoogha board was the go to place at one time and i can't get into it at all the format is confusing but maybe it is just me. This place is exactly what I told people it is a nice garage to go talk to friends ask questions and enjoy life and the hobby.

          by BNCHIEF
          Today I attended a model t ford clinic, where we discussed the kc warford transmissions and others as well as various brakes etc. We had about 150 folks here and to my surprise quite a few younger folks as well. They got to talking about tours and how to get other clubs involved when the opportunity presented itself I promoted the vff I told them about how this forum is set up many talked about...

          An impressive thing about the VFF and the posters.....
          by tbirdtbird
          From inception, I have noticed that the posters here are open minded about their methods, and have been willing to incorporate advice from professional mechanics and professional restorers into their repertoire. This is rewarding to the people that reply, in that they don't think that they are wasting their time. On so many other forums, posters are merely looking for confirmation that their shoddy...
