Seeing all the hype about the car going on the block at Mecum in 2020, very cool.

My knowledge is that:
2 Cars used in making the movie, a 289 and a 390
Once supposedly crushed, too badly damaged, one disappeared. Many rumors.

Now, we have this car from Mexico with it's documentation, all good. What about the car in NJ, supposedly also the real deal?

I'm just curious on what is the facts on the cars surfacing. Which car is which engine, are both the movie cars, what are the real facts?

Searching on the internet has many stories, many affirmations, more. Just looking to get everything straight.

Saturday Night Aug 10, first pitch at 6:30 PM, Lehigh Valley SAAC has a block of 20 tickets for all Shelby folks.

Stadium is Coca-Cola Park in Allentown PA, Phillies AAA Team the Iron Pigs. Wonderful clean stadium, great food, very affordable!

Max of 4 tickets per person, a Non-Car Shelby Night out!

Please RSVP Dan ASAP

SAAC-44 / Popular Ballot Car Show Results
« on: July 16, 2019, 01:57:14 PM »
What an amazing show field!!! Roughly 200+ cars in total, all great cars. I estimate the classic Shelby's outnumbered the new Shelby's by over 2:1 ratio. Very Impressive!!! Have not had a turn-out like this in over 10 years or more.

We tried a new judging format this year to minimize wasted trophies, and give more chances to all cars to win. Yes, it was met with some skepticism and confusion at first, but I think the results proved the new format worked, with so many exceptional cars recognized. We hope you found the method and results favorable.

Counted on the field:

1965 Shelbys:  8
1966 Shelbys: 22
1967 Shelbys: 14
1968 Shelbys:  8
1969 Shelbys: 14
1970 Shelbys:   2
Shelby deMexico: 1
Cobras (Real):  7
Bosses (All): 13
Tigers: 4
Ford GT: 1
Other Ford: 59 (Replicas, Boss, Mustangs, etc)
Non-Ford: 2
New Gen Shelbys: 48

So, here are the winners:

SAAC-44 / Popular Ballot Car Show
« on: January 24, 2019, 06:48:07 PM »
Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals / SAAC-44
Popular Ballot Car Show – Saturday, July 13th

As more information is starting to roll out about our “little Shelby gathering” out by Pittsburgh, PA, in mid-July, we wanted to share a bit of info about one of the favorite non-driving event activities, the Popular Ballot Car Show!

Past conventions have used various ways of creating classes and awarding recognition, from a rigid class list with 1-3 places per class, to just a panel of VIP's walking around and selecting a few cars that catch their eye. Each way has its own merits and faults. More often than not a class method is used, but unfortunately, not all of the trophies end up being awarded if the individual classes are not fully represented.  Every year, this topic is reviewed to try to make the show better for all…and we have a new approach for 2019.

For this year, we are using a “hybrid method”, which has been used very successfully in local and regional Shelby shows.  It recognizes the best in a total of 33 different classes for all years and models of Shelby’s and High Performance Fords, plus a "Top 25" and additional special/VIP picks.

   SAAC 44 / TS East Grand Nationals Car Show Classes
Class #   Class Name
1   CSX 2000 289 Cobras
2   CSX 3000 427 Cobras
3   CSX 4000 through 9000 Cobras
4   1965 GT-350
5   1966 GT-350
6   1966 GT-350 Hertz
7   1967 GT-350
8   1967 GT-500
9   1968 GT-350
10   1968 GT-500 & 500KR
11   1969 & 1970 GT-350
12   1969 & 1970 GT-500
13   1969-1971 BOSS Mustang
14   2012-2013 BOSS Mustang
15   2007 - 2009 GT-500 All
16   2007-2009 GT-500 KR & Super Snakes
17   2010-2014 GT-500 All
18   2010-2014 GT-500 KR & Super Snakes
19   2010 to Present GT-350
20   2007 To Present GT & SGT
21   2006 to Present GT-H
22   Shelby Trucks
23   1965 to 1973 Mustangs Stock
24   1965 to 1973 Mustangs Modified
25   1974 to 2004 Mustangs ALL
26   2005 to Present Mustangs ALL
27   Special Edition Mustangs (Saleen, Roush, etc)
28   2005 to Present Ford GT
29   Exotic Ford (Pantera, Tiger, etc)
30   Replicas ALL
31   Competition Cars
32   Special Interest
33   Classic Shelby Mustang Tribute
   TOP 25
   Peoples Choice (1)
   Team Shelby Pick (1)
   SAAC Pick (1)
   Sponsors Choice / Celebrity Pick (2)

All show entrants will be given a perforated voting sheet and envelope for their cars. The empty envelope goes under your windshield wiper, then the entrants will walk the showfield and put a ticket (i.e. a ‘vote’) in their favorite cars envelope, thereby creating the Top 25 award winning group. Separately, a panel of judges from SAAC and Team Shelby will walk the field and select the first place car for each of the 33 classes. If a car wins both a Top 25 and a first place, the car will only be awarded the first place, which allows for more winners overall. No car can win two awards. Likewise, if a car wins a “special/VIP award” (SAAC or TS Pick, People’s Choice, etc.) it is also removed from the top 25 and the first place competition. The goal is to give out all the awards and also give more cars the chance of winning and being recognized.

Another aspect of the show, which we hope will make it enjoyable, will be the relaxing of the rigid class structure. We will still group by classic and modern Shelby, real Cobras, etc, but not try to make the show field a rigid parking puzzle. If you are with a bunch of friends, this also allows for you to park together and enjoy the show with each other.

The car show is a joint effort by both SAAC and Team Shelby, and we hope all either enter their cars, or attend. The final location has yet to be determined. If you wish to help at the car show, we welcome all volunteers.

More details will be forthcoming, but we wanted to get this info out early so all can see this part of the convention, and start detailing your rides now.

We look forwards to seeing you at the show!

Looking for racers to save the club pride, need 10-12 drivers. Got a few on the list already, please respond to me directly. $30 per driver

Second, Sometime in March, at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix in Allentown PA, PA Region of Team Shelby is having a get-together at this great place to see who can lap the fastest. We'll get our own run groups, and a private room to gather in. Lehigh Valley SAAC Members have been invited to join in the fun. Again, please contact me.

1965 GT350/R-Model / Someone using the 5S306 number
« on: December 30, 2018, 11:50:56 AM »
On a Facebook page, I saw and participated in a thread about someone selling a very bad clone, and had a Shelby tag with 5S306.

The car was originally a Detroit 6-cyl, and had so much wrong, it was actually hilarious. Yet the story was the seller was swearing the car was authentic! Many on the thread blew the car apart, and I also contributed, but kept the good secrets off the thread. The person looking to buy saw the truth, and did not buy as a Shelby, but may go back and offer badly modified Mustang money.

I cannot currently find the post, it may have been taken off, but wanted to put out the word about someone using the number.

Just an FYI.

Various magazines, all complete, I do not know the specific issues, and am not near them to check, so please do not ask.

Located in Union County NJ, MUST be picked up.

PM me if interested.
