Ford Mustang Registry Approved by Ford

Greetings to the Vintage Mustang Forum

I am creating this topic on behalf of the Ford Mustang Registry, which is part of the non-profit SaveAWildMustang project and is officially authorized by the Ford Motor Company.

The goal and purpose of the Ford Mustang Registry is to create an historical ownership record for your Mustang for posterity.* There are several Mustang registries to choose from when registering and we hope that you'll take the time to join the registry and supporting saving America's Wild Mustangs in the process.

You love the Mustang, now please help save the symbol of freedom behind it.*

FordMustangRegistry.com

Thank you from the Ford Mustang Registry.

Give up while you're behind!

In Search of Mustangs was founded in 1979 and has you beat literally by decades.

Guess that's a matter of opinion.

Something about the "authorization" on this official Ford site:
Collector Vehicles

would add some credibilty, imho.

Hi.

We are absolutely authorized by the Ford Motor Company for the Ford Mustang Registry All of the apparel and merchandise is also authorized by Ford. Our goal is quite simple: register and as many Mustangs as possible and Save Wild Mustangs.

You can also call Ford here in Dearborn @ 313.322.3000 to verify us.

I personally don't see any reason a registry needs to be authorized. That is a money deal anyway, nothing else. The purpose of a registry can be served, and is served, by identities having no link to a specific manufacture. we know Ford sold their information, so that should tell you how much they are concerned. This ia money grab.

While registries are a noble cause (to some) the list of those that started, struggled, and died... is long.

- 68 S code registry - done by Guy Ramsey 2002. Now a point-in-time static artifact.
- At least two other web based S code registries I know of, both dead. All data lost, or just out of date.
- The mentioned In Search of Mustangs. Great effort, no another historic artifact of "what was".
- The Cal Special registry, done over many years then shelved by the collector to the Peterson Museum and locked away. Again, now a static point-in-time reference of interest, but does nothing for anyone other than "what was". (now being repeated by the current CS website, recollecting data and currently far less than was available).

Many others.

And by their nature they are always pretty much guaranteed to be incomplete and/or out of date. So, IMHO, not sure what the point is... other than a way to show "there are maybe more cars of this type than listed..." (assuming it is actively managed, not set-it-and-forget-it as most registries are)

Unless there is a "permanent" organization with long term structure (paying members and a group to manage, not an individual) to keep it active) a-la SAAC (Shelby registry) and individual doing it a a "labor of love" is pretty much wasting their time, as it will eventually fail to be managed and be another legacy point-in-time curiosity. Even SAAC has ahard time manging a registry of a few thousand cars, let alone the millions this Ford registry covers...

And then there is the aspect of more personal data on a sever to be hacked.

Good luck!

What's the point of registration?

Seriously, not sarcasm.
