SAAC-44 / Popular Ballot Car Show

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

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!

It's Winter, so we move the 4-wheeled antics indoors!

First, on Sunday, Feb 24, our annual Club Challenge and "Get Chris" event at S&S speedways.

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.

Lehigh Valley Region SAAC / Final North East Shelby Cars & Coffee

Join Team Shelby Northeast for one if their last events of the year...


Where: Shady Maple Buffet (The largest buffet in the USA), 129 Toddy Drive, East Earl, PA 17519

When: Saturday, November 10th at 8:00am

Cost: $12.50 + tax/person

Join us for breakfast at the largest buffet in the USA. Located in the Lancaster PA area, and featuring home made Pennsylvania Dutch cooking, Shady Maple must be experienced to be believed. Everything is made fresh daily and prepared on-site. From their still warm doughnuts, omelettes to order, and custom made pancake grill (hint: try pumpkin pancakes with pecans and chocolate chips, then drizzle them with cinnamon maple syrup), there is no way you won’t find something you’ll like, and you certainly won’t leave hungry.

When you arrive, park all the way to the lot on the left, across from the banquet hall entrance (see map in the post).When you pay and enter the buffet area, tell the hostess you are with Team Shelby so she will seat you with our group.

Please post below if you will be attending so Shady Maple can get a headcount and ensure there is enough room for our group.

See you there, and if I was you, I’d stop eating at least 3 days prior to our breakfast.

Working on all the details, but hold the dates now!!!

Moved it back a couple of weeks to avoid conflicts

Last business meeting of the year

2019 Club Dues Payable

It's Monday morning, I'm tired, but a happy tired. Piles of boxes in my house to go through!

BUT!!! Looking backwards, it was another GREAT weekend, the 9th Annual. The hotel this year was brand new, In Center Valley, right next to the Car Show location at Penn State LV Campus. Fantastic hotel, great food, room for trailers, perfect hosts. The tour was another new one with special stops at a baseball stadium, Eastwood Products for lunch, a Hillclimb in Reading, and a spirited last leg back. 89 miles of fun.

Saturday night at the NB Center was fantastic again! Top notch food and facility, and this year we enjoyed the Movie "The Gumball Rally" outdoor drive-in style.

Sunday's Car show was nothing short of unbelievable! All quality cars of every sort of High-Performance Ford, All years of Shelbys, New & Old Mustangs, Replicas, more. The weather was sunny, and not a frown to be found. We'll be making a donation to Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia for this year's Charity.

Just a great weekeknd, and if you were not with us, you missed a great weekend with a fun bunch of people.

Pictures will be posted, and on the Region's Facebook page are posted pictures, videos, and feedback. Take a look!

Just over a week to go!

The event will be great fun, a great tour, and another dazzling Saturday night!
