Alert South of the Border Mustang Registry CLOSING

For an unfortunate mix of personal and financial reasons, I will no longer be able to maintain the South of the Border Mustang Registry, which for the past 16 years has tracked Mustang production outside of the U.S.
In that time, the world has moved from recognizing four Mexican Mustangs to more than 270 built, assembled or converted in Mexico, Venezuela, Peru, the Netherlands and Australia.

To avoid losing this data forever, though, I've zipped the entire website (including the formerly private source data) and uploaded it to:

https://hotfile.com/dl/224118271/524...xmust.zip.html

So, if anyone is interested in taking over this project, feel free to download it and take the reins!

I'd like to also take this opportunity to thank Arjan Nugteren of (the sadly now also apparently defunct) dutchmustang.nl registry website, who located many of the Mustangs in the Netherlands portion of the registry.

Thanks again for your support over the past decade and a half!

Dave, sorry to hear you need to drop this site. Unfortunately (IMO) many people take sources/sites/info for granted. Everything is free right?

I'm a former member of the American Granada club. Yes there was a Euro Granada for many years, totally different but Ford Euro.

Ironically the founder is in Poland...a long time FOMOCO fan. He organized, ran and paid for the site for about 10 years.

Somehow people get the idea things are free with no help needed from them financial or otherwise.


That's my rant, thanks very much for the many
years of your efforts,

Slim

I should also mention that Dave's 1966 Mustang Tech Site will be shutting down at the same time. While none of the data there is completely unique, it is still linked and accessed by members here quite often, particularly the wiring diagrams and accessory information.
Most of this should remain available for quite a while through the Internet Wayback Machine:
Classic Mustang Tech Site

If anyone would like the whole bundle for some reason (if only to extract any desired diagrams or data), a zip of the whole site should be available for the next six months at:
https://hotfile.com/dl/224186452/db2...ammar.zip.html
(And if you get super-crazy, here are the supporting cgi files (and source code):
https://hotfile.com/dl/224180769/6dc...i-bin.zip.html
https://hotfile.com/dl/224181029/117...i-src.zip.html

DaveH,
Very sorry to find this post. Thank you for your efforts and sharing your work. I only recently found a link by a comment you posted on "just a car guy" I think it was. I travel all over the world for my job and have long been in love with Mustangs. It's rare to see classic Mustangs in other countries but so glad you made the effort to track and document them.
Good luck in the future and maybe someone will sponsor you to again take up the effort!

Hmmm… Just downloaded the tech site. Pity, my efforts alone at linking your stuff will result in over a thousand links dying. Maybe I can find a host. Thanks for the help, though.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Reactivating the South of the Border Mustang Registry.

Hi ..

I am interested in bringing back to life the SBMR.
The main problem was Dave's taking the whole financial burden on his shoulders.
I would like to find Dave's whereabouts and if he is interested in getting the forum back to life if WE contribute to aliviate that burden.
Dave did such an excelent job in running that historic Mustang site for the world wide Mustang comunity.

Dave, if you happen to read this message please let me know how to get a hold of you.

So, please, let me hear your opinions from all of you to get this reactivation up and going.

Thank you.

René.

I'm sorry to hear that. His sites were a great resource and he seemed like one of the nice guys.
I used his "10 Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter" a coupla times.
