Founded in 1980, UMRSAAC (Upper Midwest Region of the Shelby American
Automobile Club) is a regional chapter of the national SAAC Club. We are head-
quartered in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul and have over 150
member families located throughout Minnesota and surrounding states.
Although we are a chapter of the national Shelby Club, our focus is on all
Ford-powered cars and trucks. You do not need to own a Shelby to become a
member...the only requirement is that you enjoy being around others with similar
interests. Our members are interested in all aspects of the car hobby including
cruising, restoration, car shows, racing, mechanical repair, and other social events.
For over 30 years we have been an active Club with many diverse interests. We
present two car shows every year, a charity fund raising event, host a great winter
party and attend shows. We also organize other fun events such as cruises, Club
breakfasts, drive-in movie nights, bowling and go-kart races. Working with our
partner Apple Valley Ford we give something back to our community through
charitable donations. We are proud to have raised over $350,000 for charities
including Sharing Caring Hands, Make-A-Wish Foundation and numerous other
UMRSAAC has become a well-known club in the area and is invited to attend or
participate in cruises and shows with other area clubs. In turn, we invite other
Ford-powered clubs to attend our show and park as a club. Members include men
and women of all ages with a variety of backgrounds and interests. There is no
need to have automotive knowledge to join a car club. Many members just like to
'turn the key and drive'. If you are an experienced car person, you'll find as much
in-depth knowledge in Ford products as you'd like.
If you are curious about the Club you are invited to attend any regular monthly
meeting as our guest. This will allow you to meet some of our members and hear
much more about our activities and what goes on in the Club. There is no
obligation whatsoever and we'd be happy to hear about you and your interests.
With all of our annual activities you'll find the annual dues of $ 26.00 to be a real
Membership includes a monthly newsletter, monthly meetings plus participation in
all of the Club activities. The Club is also a great way to connect with others who
have similar interests and can offer help and advice on restoration, performance
enhancement or related topics. We hope you enjoy our Website. Feel free to use
the 'Contact Us' page if you have questions.
