    SVTOA and SVTP join forces to create one online destination for owners of Ford performance vehicles and deliver top-notch club events for their membership


    Ford performance fans have a reason to rejoice that goes beyond today’s reveal of the all-new Mustang GT350 from the Ford Special Vehicle Team. The two premier resources for news, information and history on our beloved Blue Oval speed machines are joining forces to improve your ownership experience. That’s right, the Special Vehicle Team Owner’s Association (SVTOA) and SVTPerformance.com are now officially a team.


    “We’re excited to partner with SVTP in order to bring the best of modern-day performance vehicle knowledge to members of both our organizations,” said Mike Rey, the newly named National Director of the SVTOA. Rey is well-known in the Ford enthusiast community for his world-class events conducted as president of the Mustang Owners Club of South Eastern Michigan (MOCSEM).  Former director Marcie Cipriani remains on the SVTOA board to enhance SVT club merchandise through an expanded online store. The new SVTOA-SVTP partnership begins immediately online, with more co-branded activity to follow beginning in the first quarter of 2015.


    What that means to you is that your online destination for all things SVTOA will be found on SVTPerformance.com. SVTOA Memberships are now part of the SVTPerformance.com Premium Membership, so you will receive all of the following benefits together under one membership:


    SVTOA

    • Subscription to SVT Enthusiast magazine (up to $20 value),
    • SVTOA Membership Certificate (suitable for framing)
    • Windshield Decal (a $5 value)

    • Invitations to Exclusive SVTOA events where you’ll get the chance to connect with REAL SVT staffers, engineers and executives!
    • Free Ford Racing Performance Parts digital CD catalog ($5 value)
    • Free merchandise bonus from SVTOAstore.com (worth up to $15)

    While being a member of SVTOA and SVTPerformance.com already offers numerous benefits, perks are sure to increase as this partnership grows.


    “For well over a decade SVTP has been known as the go-to digital source for late-model, high-performance Ford knowledge and discussion,” said Travis Hill, CEO of SVTPerformance.com. “Likewise, for the last 14 years, SVTOA has been enhancing the ownership experience of SVT vehicle fans with top-notch events and behind-the-scenes access to the engineers that make our vehicles a reality. This partnership will combine the strengths of these two well-established entities to provide the most comprehensive environment anywhere in the Ford performance community. I’m pleased to be a part of this initiative, and I can't wait to see some of our plans being put into action.”


    Ford Racing Enthusiast Communications Manager John Clor, who manages the Ford Performance Group enthusiast outreach program for the 30 Ford vehicle clubs now promoted on FordRacing.com, sees the deal as a win-win:


    “With the SVTOA being a charter club in our Ford Performance Group, this partnership opens the door for SVTP to become part of Ford Racing’s club program,” Clor said. “That will bring a new level of awareness for both groups via our weekly “Fast News From Ford Racing” e-newsletter, which reaches a quarter million Ford fans each Thursday. I look forward to giving Ford promotion and support for activities that this partnership will produce.”


    • SVTOA is an independent club dedicated to the enjoyment, care, and history of all SVT vehicles produced by Ford Motor Company. Based in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI, the SVTOA is run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts and is fully licensed by Ford. Club operating directors bring years of actual Ford SVT experience to the table and remain connected to many of the original SVT staff members.


    • SVTPerformance.com is the largest independently owned online community dedicated to Ford performance vehicles. It is made up of more than 140,000 registered members that celebrate Ford performance vehicles with a wealth of knowledge and passion.

    I have recently moved to a new house and during the move have found several items that ....
    1. I didn't know I still had so many of
    2. I don't need anymore
    3. I never needed in the first place
    4. would be better off in someone's memorabilia collection rather than in my storage unit

    So, rather than continue to be accused of being a hoarder (which I really am), I will be placing some choice items onSUPER SALE on www.SVTOAstore.com in the upcoming weeks and will also be auctioning off some really cool Ford and SVT items on ebay and donating the proceeds to Cruise for a Cause (www.Cruise4aCause.org) to benefit research for breast and prostate cancer.
