Looking Back / Re: Retrospective Spotlight - SAAC-5

My first convention. I was s poor I stayed in a room in the residence of the University of Windsor where I had been attending school and drove across the Ambassador Bridge every morning to attend the convention.

This convention literally changed the course of my life. I saw a real Cobra for the first time. Stayed up late each night and tried to absorb every speck of the whole experience. I talked to Lary Zane about a 1966 Hertz car he had just restored. $10,000. Out of my price range at the time, but not to worry; he was in the midst of restoring another one. Greg Longberger's  427 cobra up on jack stands, wheels off so you could see the mirror stainless inner fenders. Standing about 2 feet off the asphalt on the straightaway at Utica  as cars roared by at nearly 200 mph.

I look at the world today. Ever been back to the Hyatt site?

We have tons of good times left, and I still wait all year for those 4 days at the SAAC convention, But if you missed SAAC 5, you can never see how it was for us.

But at least now they make movies about it.

Sorry. That was more of a rail against the paddle shift crowd.

None of this is new. Only recently we have started to allow non Fords in SAAC events just to spread the cost when needed. This is not an "open track event". There are plenty of those. And although there are lots of new Shelbys at events now, there is always a concern that some Yahoo will dive bomb pass an original Cobra and destroy it then collect the insurance money and replace his new car, where the owner of the original car has lost something irreplaceable.

I think that our track events should be restricted to cars that have a manual clutch, but that's just me.
