There will be a full membership packet as well as two separate members cards in the Atzbach sale...very rare stuff!

Kind regards,

The original owner of my 65 graciously gave me his packet. I think the decal ended up on the car.

Paul,
 Now that is Cool !!

I like the letter from Shelby himself and the prices.  Wouldn't it be awesome to have a lighter, t-shirt, etc and especially a driving suit today?

The Vaughn Building history and its current use as a hotel...

Did CS have an office there, or did someone he knew let him use their address, or maybe the building had private mailboxes on site?

The whole Terlingua thing was a CS & Bill Neale toy and he was always based in Dallas. He may have had offices there.
