That's a good point Steve, does anyone know how frequently the printed book is updated?

Typically every 10-12 years. So it maybe a while.   Chug a Lug

The Registrars keep information up to date.

I don't own a Shelby and never will for various reasons which aren't important.

I do own a registry (along with many other SAAC publications) .

I literally read every page and the history that is in them, the research that went into putting them together is really mind blowing.

Why every single Shelby owner wouldn't have a registry in their personal library is beyond me.

^^^^ This.

It is truly amazing how great they really are. The people who put them together really poured a lot of blood, sweat and tears into them.

Getting active on this forum is a great first step, and buying that Registry is the perfect follow-up. Just donít forget to actually call the registrar when you get serious about a specific car. They may have information that was discovered/received after the Registry was printed.

+1 - always good to get the latest and up to date information. New stuff comes in all the time

And while I have the opportunity a BIG THANKS to all the Registrars for their tireless efforts over the years   Chug a Lug

  And, don't hold back.  Before you leave with whatever Shelby you buy, do a little interview about your purchase.  Where it's been, who owned it before that person.  Try to fill in the blanks about any missing history before it disappears.  Then, report that to the registrar.

registries are divided by: Cobras and GT 40's, 65-66-67s, and 68-69-70s.  So, you would end up buying two.  Kind of expensive.

True. I certainly wouldn't hold off on buying a copy now because I was waiting for a newer version to come out. Sooner or later all the currently published copies will get sold. And I've heard murmurs that it will be a LONG time before an updated issue gets printed - if ever.
