New GT/CS Registry

To the good folks of the California Special Mustang community:

Effective 09-01-2011, the New California Special Registry will be launched and will work Hand in Hand with The High Country Special Registry and Californiaspecial.com. The Previous Registry run by Paul M. Newitt will stand as a testimony of his 26+ years of dedication to the preservation of the California Special Mustang and is listed in his new book. Since Paul has resigned as Registrar and made access to the archives of the past registry impossible, we must start from scratch on a New Registry. This will take some time, so please be patient. The registries will updated as quickly and accurately as possible. If someone sees an error, please bring it to our attention.

I have spoken to Bob Teets and Jon Hanna and we all agree on the following:

I, Mike Jewell will become the New GT/CS Registrar and will be responsible for updating and keeping a hard copy of the Registry.

Bob Teets will continue to be the High Country Special Registrar and will keep and maintain the HCS Registry.

Jon Hanna will resurrect the CS.com online Registry with hopefully links to the Garage Section of the CS.com site. Bob Teets and I will keep Jon updated on new entries so he can keep the web version up to date.

Both Bob Teets and I recognize California special.com as the OFFICIAL WEB SITE for the Registries and the California Special/HCS Mustang Community.

This Registry is a DATA BASE for ALL GT/CS owners and will never be the SOLE PROPERTY of any one individual.

We are open to suggestions and ideas on how to make a better Registry and we are currently working on an online “fill in the blanks” fact sheet to make it easier to register you car. If you have previously submitted a Marti Report or factory invoice with your Registry information, I would like to ask if you can re-submit the same information again to the new registry. An electronic emailable version would be fine.

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION:
All personal contact information, i.e. Addresses, phone numbers etc. will be kept confidential and will ONLY be released with permission from that individual. This includes current and previous owners. Only names of current owners will be listed on the Registry unless requested to be kept confidential.

You can make submissions or inquiries through the following:

Mike and I had a good talk the other night and I'm excited to get the ball rolling on this.

For years I had an online Registry submission form here on the site. It was one of my key goals in starting the site back in 2000; get more cars into the Registry by leveraging the power of the internet.

In the years that it was up roughly 450 cars were submitted. I still have all that info in an online, searchable database. It simply needs to be dusted off and reviewed in the context of where the Registry is headed now. I'll work with Mike and Bob to do that and hopefully have it back up and running soon.

I want to thank Mike in advance for the hard work it's going to take to be a Registrar. There's no question that it was hard, tedious and often thankless work that Paul Newitt put in running the Registry for all these years. It will be the same for Mike and he understands and accepts that.

It's a "great day" indeed!

I'm also of the thought that Mike will neither view it as "hard or thankless". As for "tedious" - it ought be his middle name!

Mike,
After meeting you personally, I can think of no other person more balanced and fair, yet knowledgeable on the cars, to run this. Thanks for stepping up and doing this! Bob Teets and Jon, Thank you so much! For all the past work and your friendship!

A new day has dawned!

Rob

PS. when do I get that 390 carb? Or at least send me the list number and parts number of the float bowl you need. If I got a good one, it is yours for free!

Hi Mike

I think this is fantastic news. *I have been lurking on this site for a long time and finally signed up for an account. *My dad and had been looking for a car for quite sometime and without the help of a couple folks on this site we wouldn't have the beautiful car we have now. *We bought the car about three weeks ago from someone who had taken incredible care of the car and ae having a blast.*

What information should we send you for the registry? We're really new at this and want to make we get you what you would need for the registry.*

Regards

Bob

Bob, Welcome and Congrats on your new car. Until we get the new questionair finished, you can send the full VIN and the Door data information. If the door data plate is missing the ink , just send the numbers that are visible, if the door data plate is missing, we'll need a Marti Report to verify the door data.

To truly Verify cars are true California Specials, We need either a Basic Marti Report and or the factory invoice. Kevin Marti can supply you with both. You can reach Marti Auto Works at http://www.martiauto.com/contactus.cfm, or see the link at http://californiaspecial.com/resources.htm#g.

You can send this information to my email address listed below.

Thanks again Bob and welcome.

Hi Mike,

When we send you our car info should we also indicate if the car has been restored or is in original condition?

Thanks

Bob

Wanted data

Bob, and anyone else who will be sending info in to go into the new Registry. Please wait until the new Data form is online. Jon is working on it and it will include areas for Accolades and condition of car. Please be patient, as Jon is extremely busy and this takes time. We are not going anywhere. Like I said above in another reply, if you want to send the data to my personal email, that would be fine, but we still want the Data form filled out so we don't miss anything about your car. Thanks. Mike
