2011 Boss Reunion Book ***UPDATE - November 02, 2011***
« 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)

Chris,

I still have an un-opened one form '05! A true collectors item.

Count me in for 2 new books.

Are we going to caravan to Dearborn? I just brought home my 2012 and need to decide which to bring/drive.

Let me know.

Wife still Happy, recovering.
BOSS 302's are like a fabulous WI cheddar. Both get better with age and you buy them for your enjoyment, not as an investment.
