Any ETA on the New 1967 Registry?


The book is in the final stages of layout and pre-press preparation... it could very well be at the printers this month.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Checkered Flag: Bill Neale

Our community lost another one to the ages ...Bill Neale passed away at he age of 95

Gray beards know him well... new folks may sure recognize his artwork and may have not known his name.

Our friends at Shelby American posted a nice article on Bill... I thought I would reproduce it here....

Everyone at Shelby is celebrating the life of Texan Bill Neale who passed away at the age of 95.
A founding member the “Terlingua Rat Pack,” alongside Carroll Shelby, Bill was one of the most beloved individuals in our community.
Inspired by an uncle who was a fighter pilot in the Flying Tigers, he became a Navy flyer in WWII.
Bill flew in combat over the Pacific and witnessed the signing of surrender documents in Tokyo bay.

Bill was a successful businessman, leading advertising programs for high profile clients.
A founding member of the prestigious Automotive Fine Arts Society, he was an internationally acclaimed automotive artist.
His artwork has been the centerpiece of many collections, appearing on everything from racing and event posters to corporate promotional pieces.
Bill was adored by both the everyman and celebrities ranging from Phil Hill and Dan Gurney to Jim Hall and Peter Brock.
A close ally of Carroll Shelby for decades, Bill was with him at Le Mans in ’59 and told stories of Carroll at the 2012 Petersen Tribute.

Bill helped Shelby establish the legendary Terlingua Chili Cookoffs and most famously, designed the Terlingua Racing Team livery.
The "Gawdawful Yellow" and “Rabbit” crest was found on championship racecars driven by Jerry Titus, as well as a limited-edition series of Terlingua Cobras and Shelby cars.
Carroll asked him to create logos for the Carroll Shelby Foundation, which are still used by the charity today.

There are far too many aspects of the man to fairly summarize. He loved jazz, dogs and sports of all types, especially motorsports.
Bill owned and raced many performance cars, enjoyed road trips, was a veteran chili cookoff judge, and most of all, loved his wife and kids.
Bill was the consummate storyteller with a great sense of humor; he often declared that his biggest disappointment in life was never meeting a moose.
Bill was a quiet champion of the overlooked.
He tirelessly nurtured young people to reach their potential, whether it be with a paintbrush or in a business meeting.
It is impossible to estimate the number of individuals whom he helped become a success.

Those who were not fortunate enough to know the Texan will most likely remember him for his artwork and friendship with Shelby.
Those who did, know that he made the world a much, much better place.

He came from humble roots and crafted a life worth living. His legacy will live on through his art, the cars he was involved in and most of all, those he touched.
Each time you hear the rumble of a performance car or see a Shelby Terlingua car at speed, smile and think of Bill Neale. We will.

Someone has created a fake profile for Chuck Cantwell on Facebook.

They are bulk-sending Friend requests to many enthusiasts

Ignore any requests from that "Chuck" account...its a fishing expedition.

News from HQ / Shelby American - Fall 2020 Issue - Now Online
« on: August 10, 2020, 01:25:04 PM »
The latest issue of The Shelby American, Fall 2020, is online in the Members Only website

Rick is back in the bucket seat... and has turned out another  fantastic issue for the Members.

THIRTEEN great articles...  ...take a look:

Open Track at Pocono - with the Team Shelby East Coast Nationals...

Yes, there will be an Open Track opportunity in July. Asking all members in the area to show up, support our friends at Team Shelby and represent SAAC on the track and in the show field

This year's event will start at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, PA. They will be driving the North Course,which incorporates both the infield AND turn 3 of the tri-oval.
There will be multiple run classes broken down by skill level.
To ensure a professional track operation, they have joined with Hooked on Driving Northeast, who will be managing the track event.

The overriding theme of this years event will be "Ford v Ferrari", and as such, there may be some surprise competition at the track.
If things work out, there may even be a few vintage Fords and Ferraris to recreate some of the competition from back in the mid 1960's.
If not tracking your car, but still attending the track, they are planning a car show in the infield, where again the finest Fords will go nose to nose with the most fabulous Ferraris.

Gary Patterson and Tracey Smith from Team Shelby have thrown down a challenge! They want YOU to take some laps in your car at the world famous Pocono Raceway during this event. It’s the opportunity to experience your car the way it was intended, safely at speed.

And to back up their challenge, they will give the next 20 people who sign up for the track a $50 gift card to Carroll Shelby’s Store! But you must register within the next 72 hours to get this incredible offer from the President of Shelby American and the International Director of Team Shelby.

So head “back to the track” and sign up today at

News from HQ / So... what do we call it next year?
« on: July 02, 2020, 12:43:24 AM »
Saw an interesting question on the Forum the other day.... let's expand it and have some fun.

Since SAAC-45, the 2020 National Convention, fell to Covid-19...

What do we call the 2021 National Convention?

  • SAAC-46, since SAAC-45 goes in the books as "Cancelled"
  • SAAC-45, with 2020 as a "null year"
  • SAAC-45A
  • SAAC-45.1
  • SAAC-2021, and change the whole sequence system
...or....your suggestion?   8)

It's too bad I've gotta pay a $150 registration fee in order to bid on that fine "Shelby Pit Stop Deodorant".
