Default AC MKIV Registry!

Ok, working with the powers, SAAC (USA) and ACOC (UK), to pull together a new softcover registry for the MKIV as SAAC did for the 289, 427 and GT350. There are about 450 recorded in existance and the interest seems to be reasonable. This was an AC Autokraft - Ford project so of course I think worthy of the effort.

I hope to work with these groups within their design parameters and run a soft cover print which might include specs, histroy, pictures of the AC facility and maybe even interviews with folks involved with the program and importation in the 80's.

Of course once done we can keep it revised every five years or so as digital means allows that.
If it sounds of interest email me or rspond to this thread. It's far from ready so any kind words will help the process as there will be a few people involved from the standpoint of passion and not profit.

Thank you to all that are about the get involved, are involved and helping me realize this publication.

Hi Jeff,
I have now printed seven of my longrifle books and did them both in hardbound and soft bound and can help you with a good quality print company with good prices.

You mean the same SAAC that officially only cares about the original Cobras?

One in the same. It really boils down to the will and the dedication to the specific breed.
Yes there are buggy spring cars and the coilover cars in the hands of SAAC.
I am working on a blessing, then its in my hands via a local digital printer. The effort is a win all around.
You could always ask to drive the continuation series?

The 2023 Registry is now completed and available for sale. I beleive it will also go up on the SAAC site, that coming soon.
If you own an AC MKIV please contact me to get you and your car into the 2024 edition.
I have had inquires about digital copies, only book version available to control content.

Ok,

First batch of Registries have sold out so I am running a new print (more books) of the 2023 edition. Should be done this week, hope.

2024 edition will be in print December, 2023 and available in January.
Same each year forward...........
If you want to add new items to your cars history let me know for each years change in new registries forward.
Can change pics of your car and stories for each addition in progressing years...
Now that I have digital files they are easily updated.

For a few of you I need to send back some funds as it was cheaper than the $46 USD for shipping as I had to go through USPS as international mailings have changed a bit.


For those that purchased books, thank you.
