Hello Fellow Gearheads
Welcome to the Club!
It has been a long time since the last column, and much has happened. On the SAAC national side of things, the lawsuit between Carroll Shelby and SAAC has been settled. As with most lawsuits, terms will not be disclosed the the members. SAAC is planning on having future conventions located along the East Coast for the next few years while the club recovers from the high costs of litigation.
SAAC has also shipped out the new Registries; containing info on all things Cobra and GT40 related. The volume is quite impressive and contains a lot of new information and photos that have not been in publication before now. The Registry is kind of pricey and are available through SAAC Headquarters and are also being sold through the Shelby American Collection.
Work has now commenced on putting information together for the GT350/GT500/Trans-Am Registry. The planned publish date for this volume is 2010. If you have any info on these cars, please submit it to the appropriate registrar.
The Old Car Council Cruise on Colfax seemed to have a decent turnout of cars at the Invesco Field and Lakewood locations. The event did not make any money for the Council and OCC is planning on having the event again next year and is looking for suggestions to make it a better event.
The Shelby American Collection will have their annual fundraiser on the first Saturday in December and Carroll Shelby is planning on attending as of this writing. I have not heard yet of other special guests that will be attending.
The club Christmas party will be held at LULU's once again and will be on Sunday, December 14th. Nancy Meier is working on the details.
