News from HQ / We are LIVE on the new server
April 08, 2024, 01:12:39 PM
We are LIVE on the new server.

You can access at:

Be sure you see the ROUND SAAC logo on your tab...

...if not. clear your browser cache and try again.

ADD "SAACFORUM issue" to the subject line.
Attention: a notice to all SAAC Forum users:

We are preparing for a major upgrade and migration of SAAC Forum to a new server.
This will consist of freezing the Forum and closing it down for a final backup.
Then, there will be a migration to our new server that currently hosts

The plan is to shut the Forum down at approximately 3:00 PM on Sunday (tomorrow) April 7th.
The transfer will be done overnight and the software will be tested on Monday.

If the migration is successful, we should be back up and running by Monday evening, with the same data and a new look.

Your login and password should NOT be impacted; simply login to the new version.

The NEW login button will be in the Upper Left of the home page. requests will be automatically redirected to the new server location.

If you are in the middle of any transactions or you have data / images that are critical for you, please capture and download them before tomorrow at 3:00 PM.

We hope the migration is one hundred percent but in case of a problem, it may take longer for us to finish the move.

We should gain the benefit of integration with, as well as a speed improvement...  And certainly we will bring the Forum software up to the latest version.

Thanks for your patience.

The latest issue of The Shelby American, Spring 2024, is online in the Members Only website

SAAC-49 / SAAC-49 Hotel Info
March 04, 2024, 10:02:10 PM
Many have requested info about hotel(s) for SAAC-49.

Things are a little different this year. First, there is no single hotel in the area large enough for us.
Thus, we have contracted with several hotels for Convention rates.

Hotel contact information and the Shelby Convention hotel discount codes will be emailed to you upon your completed registration.
Be sure to use the discount code for significant savings on the cost of the hotel(s).
Ask a Registrar / NEW Registrar e-mail addresses

Their existing addresses will still reach them, but these addresses will be the preferred way.

SAAC-49 / Announcing SAAC-49
November 20, 2023, 12:27:40 PM

July 25th-27th 2024.

SCAM ALERT - Notice for ALL members

We have been aware of a particular SCAM that has been prevalent on enthusiast forums and Facebook groups,
mostly in areas for enthusiasts with requests for "Wanted to Buy."

I've recently been made aware of these potential SCAMS occurring on our forum several times in the past few weeks.

The way this game works is ---> a poster is contacted about his request for parts, usually through a private message,
and is told to contact another individual who is "known" to have the parts that are wanted.

This friendly "referral" by a "good samaritan" is meant to add credibility to the advice.

The message may look like this" "I recently purchased some items from XXXXX , he's willing to sell..."

The SCAMMER will then give the email of the contact who supposedly has the parts in question.

Also, look for obvious grammar and spelling errors in the message as an additional red flag

NOTE - it appears that the referred email ALWAYS has the format--->a generic first+last name + 3 or 4

We have seen the referred name to be a stranger... OR even the name of another forum member, but with the bogus email address.

This is not a new SCAM, but one that is relatively new to our Forum

BE smart, BE alert

"Trust, but verify"
ALWAYS verify the seller and the actual existence of the parts.
Use Facetime or Video Chat to validate the items
Ask for a "hostage" photo that shows the item and indicates the current date.

Remember, emails with a format "first+last name + 3 or 4" can be a burner, free, throwaway email addresses

and... always report ANY suspicious activity to us!

It's Thanksgiving week and we're just two weeks away from the close of our sweepstakes.

Here at SAAC HQ, we've got a lot to be thankful for, most of all our passionate community of Shelby enthusiasts. As a way of saying thank you, we've got some sweepstakes news to share:

We've lowered the minimum needed to award the car to a winner. We desperately want to hand the keys of this incredible car to a fellow enthusiast and watch them burnout into the sunset.

For these last few days, we're offering a special 35% bonus ticket offer to our loyal enthusiast community. This is the highest bonus we've ever offered.

One more thing, enjoy this short video from SAAC's very own Melissa...Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

SAAC-47 / VIP Basement Tour - Night at the Museum
June 03, 2022, 12:39:46 PM

We have arranged a very special add-on to our Thursday Social at the IMS Museum - The Basement Collection Tour

This Basement Collection features the rare and rarely seen. Make plans to visit today....we now have exclusive access that evening

The Basement level of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is a repository of rare, priceless, and one-of-a-kind racing and automotive artifacts and vehicles. Including modern-era Indy cars, Indy 500 Pace Cars, winning sports cars, pre-war motorcycles, and Indiana-built automobiles.

Until 2021 only VIPs were granted access to The Basement, but now, you can enjoy an exclusive 30-minute, private tour of the Museum's collection.

This tour is run exclusively by the Museum and carries an admission price of $150 per person
We are not selling the tickets, but NEED to have a head count of those that wish to take the tour

If you have purchased a Night at the Museum ticket and wish to take this tour during the visit, Go to your Registration on Motorsportreg and add it to your reservation (no charges applied at that time)

VIP Basement Tour admission will be paid directly to the Museum during your visit. Spaces are limited, so make your request soon.
