Great artwork.  Btw, what talented individual made that up?
Carolina Region SAAC / Hendrick Heritage tour
April 12, 2024, 06:48:13 PM
Today the SAAC Carolina's club with the help of Hagerty's Insurance was invited to tour the Hendrick's Heritage Center in Charlotte, NC.  Wow.  Words can't really describe that place.  Imagine if you suddenly inherited a multi-million dollar fortune and then decided to purchase every classic and modern car that ever struck your fancy.  Then put them all on display in a huge indoor building and it just about begins to come close to the collection on display at the Hendrick Heritage Center.  Many thanks go to Hagerty and their local representative Paul Kaperonis, as well as Morgan Beauregard at the Speedway Club where we had a wonderful lunch afterwards.  Also the event wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the tireless efforts of SAAC Carolina's member Stan Simm.  Thanks Stan.

I would post tons of photos of all the rarest and amazing cars that were there, but the Heritage Center has a strict policy of no pictures or even cell phones allowed inside the facility.

It depends on what type of work you are in need of.  I would highly recommend Hunter Williard in Walnut Cove.  He is an amazing Shelby/Mustang/Mopar restorer with the accolades to prove it.  He also can get minor repairs done or at least direct you in the correct path.  Hunter is a true professional, and I am proud to call him a friend. 

If it is pure engine/transmission related, then SAAC Carolinas member John Callis is the man to speak with.  He is located in the Charlotte area too.

I am PM'ing you both of their contact info. 

Good luck!

Florida Region SAAC / Palm Event March 19, 2024
March 11, 2024, 10:09:58 PM
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Palm Event, a charity car show/brunch/fashion show at President Trump's place Maralago in Palm Beach, Florida.  Shelby Research Group (SRG) founder Brian Styles is on the board and had invited my wife and myself to attend.  Maralago is truly a beautiful venue to hold an event, and seeing 45 in person is pretty cool no matter what your political leanings are.  I uploaded some pics if anyone is interested.  No shortage of Ferrari's I might add.

It was a good buy. I think the repro tag on top of the color change really hurt it.

Maybe it was because Adam Levine previously owned it.  It's hard to get that guy's songs out of your head.  ;D
Holy cow, did you all see the final price of this car at auction?  $270,000!  I didn't expect that.  :o

Funny though, other Ford iron went cheap (at least I think so).  Check this out:

There is a guy who sells them on ebay, I picked one up for the heck of it knowing it was probably something sold at gas stations in the '80s or something.  Looks to me like it's off a truck.

The underside of this thing kinda reminds of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere buried a half-century ago and unearthed in '07 out in Tulsa. 
So 3 original 1967's left Lax, but a better question is currently how many owners now wrongly claim that their cars came with a 427 engine instead?  Quite a few I suspect unfortunately.  This is what makes the SAAC Registry and even The Shelby Research Group on Facebook so important.  It keeps people honest
Replicas and Tribute / Aluminum Bodied GT40 nice video

This is a great video from a few years ago.  Jim Cowden's aluminum bodied GT40 replica.  Sweet.

Apologies if it's been posted before.
Dear Kent,

Welcome to America!  What dates to be plan to be here in the states?  Will you be traveling around North Carolina or just be staying in Wilmington?  If you decide to take a trip to Charlotte, a visit to the Mustang Owner's Museum would be worth your time.  I'm based out of Chapel Hill, but would love to meet up with you and talk Shelbys if at all possible.  My email is:
