SAAC-49 / Re: Attending My First SAAC Event SAAC-49
April 08, 2024, 01:38:19 PM
Glad you are coming, it's a huge commitment.

Stop by the merchandise tent and introduce yourself, I'll be there. Other people you mentioned will be working at other areas.

Think about volunteering somewhere for an hour or two. You will get to meet more people that way than you will by just wandering around, (although you will have plenty of time for that also).

Best of luck in your travels.

I suspect it will be early 2023.

We are still collecting photos (see posting info above).

The registry is currently being edited and the editor and Registrar are working very closely together to get the job done efficiently, accurately and effectively. Editing the details of 3,295 cars is no small feat.

We will send out an email when the book goes to the publisher, and give you the opportunity to pre-purchase the Registry.

By the way, if you are an owner of a 1969 or 1970 GT350 or GT500 and you have not recently updated the Registrar with info about your car, do it now, or it will not be included in the current registry. If you want to upload pictures of your 1969 or 1970 Shelby Mustang, you can do so here:

You will not be creating an account, so you will not have the opportunity to edit or delete any pictures that you upload. If you have any issues, concerns or questions about this site, please email me at

Thanks for your patience. It will be rewarded.

I, from 1st hand experience, support Bob's advice. After waiting for about 6 weeks for an earlier SAAC Annual, or Registry, I contacted Jay to let him know I didn't get it. He sent the Annual or the Registry and included a note addressing the situation, and I expect you will receive the same level of service. Jay does a great job supporting this club.


Thank you for your kind words, Bob and Steve. We want every current member to receive the Annual in great condition, and we always address issues that are brought to our attention. Due to Covid-19, our crystal ball has been foggy, and we are not able to discern who received an Annual in good condition, and who did not. We are leaving it to you to let us know when an Annual arrives damaged.

Write me at, include your name and correct mailing address and we will remedy the issue.

Thanks for your support of SAAC.

"Management" has sent you a replacement shirt without asking for a return.  I hope his meets with your approval. 

Now, can we find another topic to discuss?  Have a safe weekend.
Email with your question.
As of today, March 17, 2020 SAAC has NO plans to postpone, cancel or modify SAAC-45 at Indy.
If we do cancel the event, it will most likely be because we are forced to by the track or by a third party (I'm looking at you Gov. Holcomb).
An eblast will go out tonight with this same statement.

And if you have not yet registered for the convention, go to  and register. We hope to see you there.

News from HQ / SAAC Members Only Web site change
January 13, 2020, 04:44:58 PM
If you go onto the Members Only site using, you may notice that the URL changes in your browser to

THIS IS THE NEW URL FOR THE SAAC MEMBERS ONLY SITE, the site HAS NOT been hijacked, nor is there a problem. This is intentional, correct, and SAAC is aware of this.

Wild Apricot has always hosted the members only site, but since they upgraded their security, the site is now https protected.

Nothing else has changed, your user name and password remain the same. If you want to get on the site but cannot remember your password, there is a link there to reset your password. Please use that link.

And please, when you write to the membership office, have the courtesy to give us your name, and if necessary, your current mailing address. We hate searching our records when we get an email that says, "When is my membership due?" in the subject and nothing else. I know your time is valuable, and so is mine. With almost 3,000 members, this volunteer job is almost like a full time job, so please help me to help you.

Rocket (Ron),
I have no idea who you are, but SAAC would like to make the issue right.
Please send an email to with your name, current address, and your reason for writing.

As you can understand, SAAC board members are volunteers, and do not monitor the forum. We are always accessible via email
The issue is compounded by the fact that when someone has a concern, they do not give us a name or email address, so the only way I can respond is here on the forum. Now there is another step involved: you writing to Curt. So the ball is back in your court.

Nice idea, don't get your hopes up, SAAC is a ship adrift in the ocean.....

If you think SAAC is a ship adrift, why don't you offer to improve the organization that has been supporting these cars for the last 45 years instead of throwing rocks from afar?

I just got mine yesterday also.

If you have not gotten yours yet, please do not write to me until the end of the month. We have no control over the distribution of the US Post Office.

We have seen the distribution process span 3 weeks, so please be patient.

Thank you.

You have written to me twice, and I responded each time within a few hours. I sent you my phone number and waited all day for you to call.
Are you not getting my emails?
Please check your spam, and/ or give me another email address.

The Lounge / Missing the 1965 Registry?
April 07, 2019, 09:11:07 PM
To those of you who have ordered the 65 Registry and have still not received it, SAAC wants to make sure that you received it.

I don't know why it takes forever for the USPS to deliver these Registries, or why they get delivered in the order that they do, but we will ensure that you get a copy.

However, in spite of our dedication, intent and intelligence (okay, two out of three) we do not know who did not receive their Registry, or even who some of you are who are on this Form.

So, if you did not receive the Registry that you ordered, email me at and give me your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS.
If I get an email with "didn't get my registry" in the subject line and with only "Sent from my Flip phone" in the body, that email will probably get ignored.
There is only one of me, but thousands of SAAC members, so please don't make my life any more difficult.

If you did not get a 1965 Registry because you did not order one, get yours here:

As always, thanks for your continued support.
