SAAC Forum Discussion Area / SAAC Sweepstakes - Homestretch
« on: November 20, 2022, 05:37:58 PM »
It’s Thanksgiving week and we’re just two weeks away from the close of our sweepstakes.

Here at SAAC HQ, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for, most of all our passionate community of Shelby enthusiasts. As a way of saying thank you, we’ve got some sweepstakes news to share:

We’ve lowered the minimum needed to award the car to a winner. We desperately want to hand the keys of this incredible car to a fellow enthusiast and watch them burnout into the sunset.

For these last few days, we’re offering a special 35% bonus ticket offer to our loyal enthusiast community. This is the highest bonus we’ve ever offered.

One more thing, enjoy this short video from SAAC’s very own Melissa…Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We have arranged a very special add-on to our Thursday Social at the IMS Museum - The Basement Collection Tour

This Basement Collection features the rare and rarely seen. Make plans to visit today....we now have exclusive access that evening

The Basement level of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is a repository of rare, priceless, and one-of-a-kind racing and automotive artifacts and vehicles. Including modern-era Indy cars, Indy 500 Pace Cars, winning sports cars, pre-war motorcycles, and Indiana-built automobiles.

Until 2021 only VIPs were granted access to The Basement, but now, you can enjoy an exclusive 30-minute, private tour of the Museum’s collection.

This tour is run exclusively by the Museum and carries an admission price of $150 per person
We are not selling the tickets, but NEED to have a head count of those that wish to take the tour

If you have purchased a Night at the Museum ticket and wish to take this tour during the visit, Go to your Registration on Motorsportreg and add it to your reservation (no charges applied at that time)

VIP Basement Tour admission will be paid directly to the Museum during your visit. Spaces are limited, so make your request soon.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / 1969-1970 Registry Project
« on: May 07, 2022, 06:01:22 PM »

SAAC is getting ready to publish the long-awaited updated 1969 – 1970 Registry.

As you know, SAAC's Registry is known throughout the world as the definitive authority on the cars from Shelby American from 1962 – 1970. But our 1969 – 1970 Registry is only as good as the information which you provide.
So what does this mean for you? If you have a 1969 or 1970 GT350 or GT500, it is time to make sure that the registrar has the most up-to-date information on your car. The place to update your information is:

The 1969 – 1970 registrar is Vincent Liska, and his contact information is:
ISELIN, NJ 08830
PHONE: 732-634-1044

We have set up a website for you to send us pictures of your car for use in the Registry. That website is:

The passcode is SAAC2022
The form requires all boxes to be filled out before you can upload an image. We want only the LAST 4 DIGITS of your VIN.
You may upload a maximum of 4 images. If, in the process of uploading an image, you decide you do not like it, you may delete it and upload another one in its place.
You will not be creating an account on this web site, so you cannot go back and modify your information.

What do we expect for pictures?
•   They have to be in sharp focus. Blurry pictures won’t get used. With today’s digital cameras and iPhones you almost have to try to take a bad picture. If you have an iPhone, try the Portrait mode when taking the picture. That will put the car in sharp focus and subtly blur the background.
•   Hood closed. We know your car has an engine. There’s no need to prove it. Shelby Mustangs have beautiful lines. Why ruin them with an open hood?
•   Distracting backgrounds. When you look through the viewfinder all you see is your car. We get it – you love that car. But look at what else is in the picture behind the car: a mail box, a telephone pole, garbage cans, other cars, laundry hanging on a clothesline.
•   Shoot the whole car. Standing too close can chop off the front or rear fender. Don’t be afraid to take a few steps back. We can enlarge the image. Stand too close and you may cut out part of the car.
•   Be aware of where the sun is. If it’s overhead it can wash out the car’s color or reflect off of the windshield. Professional photographers shoot in early morning or late afternoon sun. It is the softest. Mid-day sun is harsh. Try to park the car so the sun is behind you.
•   A little elevation never hurts. Standing on a box, stepladder or the bed of a pick-up will provide a nice angle and will eliminate a lot of unnecessary background clutter.
•   Resist the urge to be in the picture. We want to see your car – not you and your family. Save that for your Christmas card.

Now, go out there and take some pictures
