If Carroll Shelby has a NEW OFFICIAL website for ALL Shelby vehicles,then what is going to happen to the SAAC?
what is the web site?
Well Fred just received my formal letter from SAAC. Tis a shame. YOU were right on. Greed $$$ is to blame. Just my opinion and not necessarily yours. Make's you want to think twice about the new JOB! Hope the funds are going to the RIGHT place. Must be another Martini Moment. Money, Money, Money!
I signed up with Team Shelby this past week. I agree with the club's "inclusive" philosophy to recognize all Shelby's from '65 to present. We are owners of a Shelby automobile just as much as the guy who owns an original '65 GT350. All Shelby owners who want to be involved should be recognized and welcomed to the group!!
I have been a SAAC member for a while. The post above pretty well sums up why I have been unhappy with the SAAC group and its eliteist attitudes. I think this is one major reason CS is pulling his support. He wants a club than is going in a different direction and was not able to influence SAAC to do so.
I also ponyed up for a Team Shelby membership this week and will now let my SAAC membership lapse at the end of 2007. I also find it interesting that one of the largest and best supported SAAC events in the country is now a Team Shelby event. It fits with Mid America's attitudes over the years of welcoming ALL performance fords. Very un SAAC like and has been appreciated by me for many years.
I too am dissappointed that CS and SAAC could not find it in thier ways to move into the 21st century together and embrace all that is Shelby performance. There are already far more new generation Shelbys than all the first gen models combined. The tide has shifted and SAAC refused to grow with the times.
Wonder what SAAC's new name will be?
