Considering the year SAAC just had and all the turmoil, I don't expect or feel a magazine is warranted or should be expected. Sure the SA is a great publication and we all love getting one but I'm glad efforts were spent keeping SAAC intact instead of working on a magazine.

Besides, there's not a lot of new info about these cars so other than coverage of recent events which we can find out about on here real time, what should the SA contain?

I'm sure one day when Rick is bored and has nothing to do the SA will rise to the top of the list.

No magazine?  Try reading your Snake Bite bulletin, these forums and other web site pages and then go through the new Registry.  Who's got time to publish or read a magazine this year? Cool

I feel for $50US a year membership we should receive at least 1 magazine a year.

If I had the attitude of "who's got time to publish a magazine" in my engineering practice I wouldn't be in business for long.

If you had to come up with new material for the last 30 years you might slow down to 1 job a year too, We could have 4 mags a year with same old rehashed crap as per some other mustang rags  but we won't go there.

I've heard that too but I take that as an excuse. There are a good deal of new members who never read the original materials. A "history" section would help fill and educate.

Is this how you capture new members or keep old ones by saying we have nothing left to say? If that is so, just forget about publishing the magazine.

 I know that you would not post anything without checking the facts so here they are , Does not say one issue a year!  Its all on front page if you need to check it .  

When is the last time you contributed anything ?    


Here are the facts about THE SHELBY AMERICAN MAGAZINE

Printing -  The SHELBY AMERICAN is a club publication which relies solely on contributions from members for all articles and photographs. While members oflen pay us the compliment of equating it with a professional magazine put together by a large, full-time paid staff, nothing could be further from the truth. There is no formal publishing schedule for the magazine. When we have enough quality material to fill an issue, that issue goes to the printer. Our standards are high and rather than lower them just to meet some arbitrary deadline we'll hold off printing until what we have is worth it. We don't reprint articles that have appeared somewhere else and we try not to use the same photograph more than once. In short, we won't fill empty pages with fluff for filler just to get an issue out.

Works for me, although I'll bet I have not contributed anything worthy of inclusion in over ten years.....Going to have to work on that one ans see what I can come up with.

Maybe a new series of articles called "THE HUNT" in which the owners tell the tale of their search for their Shelby........Maybe the one that got away (in my case turning down a 65 GT350 for $1,500 because the motor smoked a little too much back in 1979), maybe the one sitting awaiting someone else to claim it.......

A quarterly magazine has a voracious appetite for articles. The more contributes we receive, the faster we can pump issues out.

If you have an idea for an article, send me an email outlining it and I'll let you know how to proceed. It may be a long shot, but somebody else may already be working on something similar.

Or, I guess you can always sit on your hands and complain about the infrequency of magazines. That's easier, but doesn't make as interesting reading.

Personally I couldn't care less about when we get The Shelby American
as long as the Registry for 65-67 is coming out sooner instead of later.
Somebody mentioned "The current Sistuation"
What sistuation?

I heard the 2010 magazine will be shipped soon.  Is this true?  I'm excited.
