The magazine seemed more like an ads magazine. They didnt spend much time on articles or pictures (like on the convertible 1966 GT350), it was all about their new cars and products mainly, but then again, its their magazine and they want to sell their products

Seeing how the last post on this thread was March 2010 and this is March 31 2014  I am wondering if you even know what year you are talking about ?  Shocked What page was the article on the convertible 1966 GT350 ? Roll Eyes  Is your name  Mr. Peobody or Sherman  Hysterical  .  26 pages of adv out of 332 pages in the CURRENT#92 2013 annual edition doesn't seem like a lot to me. But that is just me .

Kinda funny comment considering that most every article written was done for free and done for the sole reason of truly helping out.

Sinethomas, go look at a current issue of Car Craft, Hot Rod, or such and report back the ad/edit ratio. Then again post the ad/edit ratio of the SAAC magazine.

Personally, I'll take the SAAC ad/edit ratio any day.

I suspect that sinethomas may be referring to something other than the SAAC publication “The Shelby American.” A few months ago I picked up a copy of a magazine with a similar title, but it was pretty much all about the current Shelby cars & products. Plenty of ads. As a matter of fact, even the articles read like advertisements for the new company. Although I don’t have that magazine handy to confirm the 1966 GT350 convertible story that was mentioned.
