I've chimed in on this topic a couple times over the last year.  Here's my current observation:

The 1967 Shelby Registry is done as far as SAAC is concerned and is in the hands of the printer.  To my knowledge, no one at SAAC works for the printing company that was selected to produce the printed Registry.  As such, no one at SAAC is in a position to urge things along, other than inquiring regularly what the timeline is for availability from the printer.  With revised date information, interested SAAC members could then be updated regularly as to when one might expect the announcement regarding the For Sale date of said Registry.  This would likely alleviate many of the inquiries related to the availability.

I agree that there is the widespread appearance globally of "It's because of Covid", and there is likely overuse of said "excuse".  I think it's safe to say that the entity who printed the 2021 SAAC Annual is not the one chosen to produce the 1967 Registry. 

I own every printed SAAC Registry dating to 1976, so obviously I'm a consumer of information, particularly that concerning anything produced by Shelby during the 1960s.  I'm as eager as anyone to receive the email saying that the 1967 Registry is available for purchase.  But I've learned that there are circumstances beyond my control in terms of this project, and that the constant "Are we there yet?" banter is obviously grating on certain individual's nerves, and I understand that.

Having said that, I am just grateful for what I do have in terms of reference material related to these automobiles.  These cars wouldn't be what they are today without this club and all who have contributed to its success.

Santa can't always deliver on wishes, but I am certain he always does his best.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I got to wonder....
How would the Cobra owner's deal with no registry?
How would the 65 Shelby owner's deal with no registry?
How would the 68 Shelby owner's deal with no registry?
How would the 69+ Shelby owner's deal with no registry?
So, we are led to think that the 67 registry was sent to the printer last? I will assume the best and think that there was a larger amount of info, thus it was sent in after every other year was? Yes, I am making noise....I will hold back. I would not want to be thought of poorly.

Maybe the above last line is a hint that it will come out the week after Thanksgiving???

The 1967 Registry is not the last one.  The newest version of the 1969-1970 Registry has yet to be released.  And the 1968 Registry likely contains far more information than the 1967 Registry as there were many more cars built for 1968.  I'm not sure why the 1968 Registry was released prior to the 1967 Registry, that's a question for the higher ups.

The "Happy Thanksgiving" was just that.  Nothing more than a closing remark to my post, not speculation nor hinting.

I will AFTER I find a factory manual. Not so sure about that solving the problem. My first love in the Shelby world was the 67.

Where do you come up with all of your stuff? "FL SAAC", LOL. I had a friend up north who was the same way!!! Its hard to keep quiet, but easy to sit on a sofa and look at stuff!!
If its not the 67 Registry its yellow lettering on tires that are bothering me today! Ahhhh, I have a great life, if that is all that bothers me! (actually, there is much more that "really" bothers me)....I bet we can guess that stuff also.

How every word you write is being scrutinized by the SAAC committee

This is getting serious smalls, real serious

Truce on Thanksgiving no mention of ANY registries today

And take a deep breath.

x2-some of you need to find better ways to occupy your time.  The whining and moaning is getting old on this topic and others.  Or, feel free to jump in and help gather, sort, vet and then prep. for publishing.  Christ almighty.
