Happy New Year! The Alexis Registry is back online. Due to major technical difficulties (Comcast deleted all web files after account transfer) and a lack of spare time due to the pace of life, the site was down for quite some time. Over the course of the winter, I plan to compile and organize chassis information and get the Registry updated and on line. This is a work in progress, so bear with me as I get it going. I have had some major breakthroughs in the history of the early works cars this past year and look forward to adding information on these cars. In the interim, please contact me via the contact page if you have ANY information on ANY of the Alexis chassis’. I would like to have chassis numbers, AM numbers (left rear shock mount plate), owner, location, description, any historically significant history, and any pictures of the car past or present. Also have a look at the Yahoo group we have set up, and join and contribute there.

The site continues to make strides in its first week of operation. The Alexis Cars Yahoo group is up and running and fully functional, and the Yahoo Group page on this site can detail everything you need to know on how to join, and reach this page. The Yahoo Group is a great way for Alexis owners to have a place to network and post questions or provide general information to other interest Alexis owners and enthusiasts.

The Registry page is in its infancy, and I will update it as I receive more information from owners. The page is likely to undergo many upgrades as I learn the ins and outs of Excel spreadsheets – the format I am using to collate the owner information.

Enjoy the site, and direct any information and comments to us through the contact page.

Welcome to the Alexis Registry! After years of “thinking” about doing this, I finally took the plunge and made it happen. Your webmaster is Scott Sanders, owner of a 1967 MK 8 F2 car and a 1969 MK 15 formula ford. I have been racing the formula ford since 1998, and I continue to develop the F2 car after its purchase in 2004.

The purpose of this site, as the home page states, is to provide a place to collect, record, and share information about the Alexis marque of formula racing cars. I hope to contribute to the preservation of the history of these great cars.

Please bear in mind that this is a non-profit amateur effort, and please consider it to be a work in progress. I am learning the webpage building process as I go, but so far so good! I think that long term it will turn out to be a success. I am sure that there will be glitches here and there, so be patient while I figure all of this out.
