Target date for book release?

Has Paul mentioned any target date with summer almost over. I was thinking perhaps September or October at latest. I do know Paul has put his heart and sole into this project. The titillations of information may keep me up nights digesting this new book.

Has the new Author PMN decided on a location for a book release and California Special car show for the the presentation of his new book new book.

This is a good question that will only be answered by the SAAC forum as it has been mentioned that our GT/CS book info is on this Shelby site now. Why? Another good question.

ISO well behaved, dependable, and determined CS.

Best answer that comes to mind regarding the book release is "sometime in the far distant future".

Doesn't sound like it's going to be an accurate representation of a registry where it includes or excludes who ever the "Registrar" deems his loyal followers "or not" so it has no value in my opinion. An inaccurate representation by not registering all CS cars is worthless due to the void it leaves. He has given money back to some so I'd be for getting my $$ back and move on. Maybe someday we can get a Registrar that is honest and understands his/her true role. Once Newitt let other peoples behavior control his emotion and he made the poor choices he has made he became a loser, you can not let other peoples behavior control your emotions and retain respect, especially in a leadership role. Tantrums are not a part of being a registrar, it's unbiased complete registration of all of what ever it is you are registering, you can't pick and choose no matter how easily you become an emotional wreck and call it anything other than your own little personal collection of what ever it is, he can keep his collection, I will not poses another of his books, they have no value to me because it's all about his personal gain not about the love for the car.

Cory,
Well said! An accurate depiction of the book. His book written in "his" sandbox. Personally his manupulation of the data has now made his books accuracy suspect on so many levels. It is one mans opinion and nothing more. At least the data mined from this site is accurate.

Again how sad. I have said that so many times, but it is so true.

Rob

Paul posted a month or two ago that all prepaid books are not eligible for a refund.

Paul's post was poorly written and therefore a little confusing but I think what he meant was that new orders won't be eligible for refunds. I wouldn't swear to it, though.

If there was an option, I would ask for a refund at this point.

Here's the post from SAAC.

OK, what does it mean?

I think he means that anyone ordering a book after June 20th, 2009 will not be able to cancel the order and receive a refund.

Since, on numerous occasions, he offered to refund the money for earlier orders he must honor that offer, unless he wants to end up in court.
