This is a postal distribution center issue. They piled up all 3rd class mail in a corner somewhere last month when they couldn't handle the packages and first class mail. They say that they will get to the 3rd class pile up eventually. I wonder why this issue hasn't become headlines!! My local post office says they have no mail lying around and they wil get me my magazine as soon as they get it from the regional distribution center. In my case its all piled up in the St. Louis center. Please understand that this is not a V-8 Club issue.

I wrote the Club and got this note back...it's a distribution problem as Don said:

Hunt;
You have reached the web administrator of the Early Ford V-8 Club web site.
They are being delivered, just slowly.
We are asking you to be patient. You are not the only one waiting and you are correct, the problem is delivery
by the US Postal Service.

Mine came to Central New York a while ago. The post office is very slow these days. I sent a magazine to a friend in Indiana and it took a month to get there.

Same here in Southern AZ. Believe it is 100% USPS trying to work down holiday volume. Had trouble getting Christmas Priority Mail to NJ and MA....and that was with tracking and supposedly their "best" service option and plenty of lead time!!


Been almost a month now, should have been back to "normal" by now!

I got my model A news a few weeks ago and my dad who lives in the same town 3 miles away got his yesterday. One post office and 10,000 people and I guess they ship in approximately the same way. I'm guessing it was lost in a distribution center somewhere.

On Jan 21st I sent at note to Cornerstone asking about the delay. Here is their reply.

Hello Michael -
The November/December V-8 Times magazine is still being mailed to all Early Ford club members.
Most of the club has not received their issue yet.
The National Board of Directors is saying to be patient as it should arrive soon.
Thank you.

This is the Cover of the Nov/Dec 2020 issue of V8 Times that you all are chasing.
It seems strange that I received my copy a month ago on Christmas Eve, 24 Dec 2020 and I live in Australia?

That can be explained. Your magazine went from printer to shipping service that sends it to Australia. It did not have to enter the US Postal Service. That as they say, is the weakest link.
