How would you like your GT/CS Decal?

I'm finally (!) about to design the GT?CS Decal for the Registry, and I would like some input as to how you would like it. I know I've asked this before, but there is one thing on my mind....

Should I still make it say "celebrating 35 years 1968-2003", OR should it be a more generic, non-dated decal for registry members? Gold with black lettering & round--just like the old ones??

You see, 2003 is about over, and a decal with "35 yrs." on it will be dated in no time. What do you think??

I'll put the ( updated) production number, etc., like the old ones, too.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Part of the $$ will go to the SHELBY children's heart fund (via SAAC).

Paul.

Paul,
I think the old style looks great. I actually never thought about the decal saying "35th Ann" but it would date it and a generic one would be a better seller after this year. Although the "35th Ann" decal would be a collectors item as time passed.

My windshield still sports your original decal. I would say that if you plan on continuing this tradition and eventually making a 40th anniversary I wouldn't hesitate making this one for the 35th. We could always replace the 35th with the 40th when the time comes. Either way I think it will be great and I will get a couple one for the car and one for a keepsake.

As a side note you should see my check for the 96 registry soon and thanks for taking the time to make the books I thoroughly enjoyed the first and I'm sure this one will even be be better.

Would you be willing to upload a picture of the two designs you have had in the past? The 35th year anniversary, and the generic one.

I would be willing to offer you lots of good ideas...but I've never seen the decal before!

I vote with Tom, I like the design of the old one; I like the generic version as opposed to the 35th Anniv.

I like the old decal as well. It's classic just like our cars.

Re:How would you like your GT/CS Decal?

I have to admit, I'm a very greedy person - I want both!! ;D I love the original decal and I hope you do have more of those made. Could the 35th anniversary decal be something in addition to the registry decal? Maybe like a half moon shape that goes below the registry decal or a simple banner type decal? That way we could add or change to the 40th, 50th etc as we all grow old(er) together. ;)

Paul, my vote is for the original style and color with the revised production update. I think that the style suites the 1968 era. Dave

Paul, I can understand how you're itching to make a new design, but I also have to agree that the original is hard to beat.
