IN CASE YOU MISSED IT,AS A REPLICA OWNER, THERE CURRENTLY IS A MOVE BY "PROMINENT" MEMBERS OF THIS CLUB TO TO TOTALLY BAN ANY PARTICIPATION BY REPLICAS IN THE ACD REUNION, NOT ALLOWED IN THE PARK OR THE PARADE, PERIOD, THEY APPARENTLY ARE SO MAD SOME M****N HAS EVEN THREATENED THE BOARD WITH LEGAL ACTION TO ENFORCE THE CLUB BYLAWS WHICH THEY READ AS OUTLAWING REPLICAS ENTIRELY, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE BEEN A PART OF THIS CLUB FOR A VERY, VERY LONG TIME.
I KNOW MANY OF YOU LONG AGO STOPPED COMING TO THE REUNION BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT, LETS JUST SAY, INSULTING POLICY TOWARDS REPLICAS, BUT THIS IS BEYOND THAT, THEY NOW WANT TO BAN PARTICIPATION OF REPLICAS ALL TOGETHER.

IF YOU, LIKE ME, DISAGREE YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.

Mike,

The Board is NOT contemplating banning replicas any more than we would ban a member from bringing ANY modern car to a meet.

Gents,

I would find it hard to believe that the club would eliminate such a large part of the enthusiast base.

I have so many original parts on my Glenn Pray second generation Speedster that, until you lift the bonnet you can't tell it's not a real 852. While it's not the "real thing" I look forward to my interfacing with other ACD Speedster owners real and replica.
