Looking for owners and cars to feature
« on: March 27, 2019, 10:23:07 PM »
Hello friends,
I am currently looking for owners and cars to feature for magazine articles. I have corresponded with several of you previously with great appreciation. If you are interested in sharing your story in Ford Muscle magazine (or others) please contact me @ jp@jpemerson.com .

I have included a few previous articles from other SAAC members below for reference or you can visit jpemerson.com for additional examples.

https://www.streetmusclemag.com/news/1966-ford-mustang-gt350-power-profile-john-saia/

Cars do not need to be perfect examples and I am open to all brands provided they are vintage.

Thanks for your time.

In that first article you show 2 separate cars that both have the description (underneath) of being his first Shelby..............

What is there for him to chime in about? Both cars are captioned as being his first Shelby. I’m merely pointing out an editing error. Nothing more nothing less.
I’m sure it meant to say something like “first car” and “first 65.”
But it doesn’t
No worries

I did understand your reference. My reply was simply for clarification only since I don!t know if the error was on my part or in the edit. My apologies to both in either case for the error.

Love these articles JP!  Keep it up.  I typically hit the Ford Muscle site while having my morning coffee, just after I check the latest on SAAC Forum  :)

Sorry guys, didn’t see this post yesterday. The blue GT350H was my first and, like every other car, I shouldn’t have sold it!

Kind regards,

I'm in for a write up...I have a car with a story - Found behind a house in Texas, personal restoration within the community of support, just won a class award at Amelia for a "triple crown" win in concours class. Now the son of the 50+ year old dealership that sold the car has provided a photo showing it on the lot in 1965. Might make a good read!

Thanks for the response guys.
If you have emailed me and have not received a Q & A sheet in return please contact me. I don't think I have missed anyone but if so, just let me know.
I look forward to speaking with each of you.

Don't see a way to contact you. I bought my Hertz in 1967, and still have it. It's a driver, not a trailer queen. Ron
Original owner of 6S550. Owned since 1967. 64,000 Miles, all body original except hood and front valance. All glass original except windshield. Still has aluminum 4 speed. Has replacement Mico.  Also own 1966 Mustang convertible. They are drivers, not trailer queens.
