Title: 2011 Boss Reunion Book ***UPDATE - November 02, 2011***
Post by: DrBoss302 on April 17, 2011, 09:34:44 pm
Greetings,

In the tradition of the 2005 Boss National Reunion book, the potential exists for a 2011 Boss National Reunion book also to be printed. It depends upon the interest expressed from board member attendees that plan on having their 1969-1971 Boss (302, 351, 429) Mustangs and/or Boss Cougars present in Dearborn, MI this August 4-7, 2011.

The format of the book/compendium would be somewhat similar to the 2005 book, composed of owner’s stories of their vehicle along with glossy color pictures of their vehicle at the show. I will photograph each vehicle with the opportunity for the vehicle owner to be included, if so desired. Potentially one page with owner’s submitted information will be dedicated to each vehicle. This book significantly involves owner participation of those that attend this Dearborn show with their vehicle(s), through submission of vehicle history, which may include yet is not limited to: acquisition, restoration, street racing, tickets etc.

The final cost of the book presently is undetermined. If you need to know the final cost of the book prior to committing to purchase, then this book is probably not for you. The 2005 cost per book was approximately $60.00 not including S&H. It would probably be approximately 8 + months after the event before receipt of the book. The costs today are consistently fluctuating with shipping, printing, packaging etc. Remember, that this is a limited produced book with only the number of pre-sold books to be printed; therefore the cost per book will be greater than a mass-produced book.

The 2005 book was over 180 pages in length, which included a table of contents, forward, introduction and index. Over 192 vehicles were photographed with 118 owner submitted vehicle histories. If 100 pre-paid orders are received, then the potential exists that the book would be published.

Because this book is an individual project, unforeseen and uncontrolled circumstances (think as an example the wash-out on Friday June 3, 2005 at Carlisle, PA) may unfortunately prevent final publication. In that case, those that pre-paid will obtain their pre-paid money back.

At the risk of being redundant, once again this book would be a partial documentation of the events, and of the ’69-‘71 Boss vehicles present at Dearborn, MI this August 4-7, 2011 only. If you are interested and committed to purchasing this compendium, then please state your intent (with your email) within this thread. Because of the time constraints for compendium development, I need to know how many will commit to purchase by May 1, 2011.

Thanks to all, six years ago, who believed and trusted (with their pre-paid orders) that the 2005 Boss National Compendium would be published.

C.E.Matt  (aka: Doc Boss)

Post by: DrBoss302 on July 10, 2011, 08:13:14 pm
August 4, 2011 is fast approaching and even though we have about 50 committed book orders, I’ll anticipate that additional orders will be placed during and right after the big event. Final cost of the book will be posted prior to the event.

But for now, I’ll need from each of you attending the show with your BOSS (Cougar, 302, 351 and 429) to submit some information pertaining to your vehicle. Remember that this is your book with two color glossy photographs of your BOSS at the event (I’ll be photographing your vehicle); along with information you supply about your vehicle in addition to a documentation of the festivities surrounding the event.

Beside you supplying your:

Name
Location
Car Model
Car Year
Car Color

feel free to write up a personalized summary about your vehicle. This may include when you decided you needed a BOSS, or street racing history, or maybe that first traffic violation with your vehicle. How about close calls with the vehicle, or the experience of ¼ drag strip, win or lose. Maybe that first date…on second thought, better strike that last suggestion. Y’all get the idea. Your personalized information should be around 300 words. Too much longer and it will have to be edited. Here’s an example from the past:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Dr59Elky/Compendium/8c79dd80.jpg)

It would be really helpful if I can have your write-up prior to August 4, 2011. Please send your write-up to me WITHIN the body of an email. Please do not send your write-up as an attachment. By sending your write-up within the body of an email, it avoids potential software program incongruities and allows for easier editing.

Title your email write-up as “BOSS Reunion" and send to:

el59camino@hotmail.com

Further information about your vehicle being photographed at the event will be posted in the near future.

Looking forward to seeing a lot of you again and meeting up with new owners.

Until next time,


Cheers  (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Dr59Elky/GIFs/cheers.gif)

As a heads-up, we’ll be photographing 1969-1971 Boss Cougars and Mustangs on Sunday August 7, 2011 at the Mustang Memories All-Ford Car Show and Swap Meet at Ford World Headquarters, 1 American Rd. Dearborn, MI. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, all photographing potentially will be completed by 12:00 noon, rain or shine. It’s recommended to arrive early and set up.

All state issued licenses plate numbers on the photographed vehicles will be erased when the book is printed to maintain owner confidentiality.

“How will I know if my vehicle was photographed???” A fluorescent green self adhesive dot will be placed on the driver’s side upper windshield after the vehicle has been photograph. PLEASE DO NOT remove this green dot until after the show on Sunday. Any questions about being photographed with your vehicle during this event, please call 1-920-216-0015 only on Sunday prior to 12:00 noon.

Remember, the book is a partial record of this historical event. It becomes even more personalized when you include the history of your car as discussed July 10th above. Please submit your history synopsis before August 4, 2011. Please send your write-up to me WITHIN the body of an email. Please do not send your write-up as an attachment. By sending your write-up within the body of an email, it avoids potential software program incongruities and allows for easier editing.

Title your email write-up as “BOSS Reunion" and send to:

el59camino@hotmail.com

Looking forward to connecting with old friends and meeting all new BOSS owners in just a few days.

Until next time,

Cheers  (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Dr59Elky/GIFs/cheers.gif)

Well, I can think of one word that summarizes the 2011 Reunion...unbelievable! Meeting for breakfast at the Secret Recipes Restaurant on Friday with all the Bosses in the parking lot, AAI tour watching Mustangs being built, running on the track, Concours judging event, dinner with great speakers and the Sunday show. This event will definitely be difficult to beat. Thanks to Randy, Lisa and everyone else for orchestrating this fantastic event.

The show was well documented. Because of a number of people at the show unfamilar the reunion book, I've extended some time to get your personal histories to me very soon. All registered Bosses in the designated reserved area on Sunday at Ford World Headquarters were photographed. If yours was there, draft the request history synopsis information and send it to me as per instructions above.

Keep an eye on this thread for updates.

Hey Doc, what's the latest on the Reunion book?

Book is progressing as expected. More than likely the (+) portion of the expected publication date as discussed in the third paragraph of the original post as read here:

Boss Reunion Book (http://www.boss302.com/smf/index.php?topic=53082.0)

Presently trying to work through unexpected snags. I'll post when anticipated publication will begin. Thanks to all for your patience with this endeavor.

Until Next time...
