SAAC-46 / Up date on trophies
« on: September 15, 2021, 12:32:55 PM »
I contacted the trophy company this morning for an update: their response was the order should be shipping next week of sooner.
I want to give you an idea what the process is and why it seems takes so long.
First question was who was going to handle the trophies SAAC or the Concours chairman, then the type of trophy needed to be picked out which lead to developing art work for that format, then it gets sent to the  trophy company for their art department to finalize the art work then it gets sent back to me for review and approval. After SAAC approval the order is sent to production, at this point it takes about 2-3 weeks before delivery. Once I receive  the trophies they get repackaged and send to each of the winners.
I want to thank everyone for their patience and it's an honor work with everyone

Misc. For Sale / Looking for long lead technical conference press kit
« on: July 22, 2021, 03:43:06 PM »
Looking for a good copy of the first press release of the 1968 Shelby, there were 2 press releases.
It was produced for the  Long Lead Technical Conference.
Like the second press release there were several photos and specification sheets included

A copy from an original press kit works for my needs.

SAAC-46 / Judging and parking areas
« on: July 22, 2021, 12:41:43 PM »
We will start judging a couple of cars on Friday, we also plan on having a short meeting on Saturday with Judges and owners. This meeting will  probably be in area 8 under a tent we hope.

Instructions form the track:
If you need to unload before 6p or so on Thurs, please unload  in Lot 3.  If you arrive after 6p, you should be able to unload in a fire lane behind Area 8 and then park your tow rig and enclosed trailer in your paddock space in Area 5 or on the other side of Area 8.  We do ask that flat trailers be parked up in Lot 2 .

SAAC-46 / Location for Concours parking
« on: July 12, 2021, 11:21:45 AM »
Concours Judging will be in area #8, the last convention held at this track the cars were lined up next to the fence that ran along the fire lane. That fire lane is the road that is vertically from the grand  stands to the top of the drawing.
With that said track officials have the final say, so look for us in AREA 8.
If you have any questions contact Mike Shally at
I've attached the map provided by the track.

Wanted to Buy / Early press kit for 1968 Shelby

Wanted to Buy / decals for deluxe door strap end caps
« on: January 10, 2021, 11:58:08 AM »
Wanted a set of end caps, so far all the end caps I've seen have been nice but the chrome is either pitted or showing it's age.
I also looked into having my end caps re-chromed but have not found any good decals for the insert
 High quality decal inserts can be made but the cost seems high for only one set.
I don't know why some one like Scott Drake doesn't take the time to make a good reproduction end cap for the deluxe interiors.

I have observed the transmission mount and transmission cross member may have been color coded, see photos.
Can anyone else provide additional input on this topic?

« on: September 10, 2019, 11:13:21 AM »
Looking for a KM 298 upper radiator hose, I have my original hose and don't think it's wise to use it on my 1968 GT 350.
Dose anyone have any leads, I've looked at all the reproduction hoses and have been disappointed .
