On Saturday, May 21st, crowds of Shelby fans and owners are invited to head to the Carroll Shelby International headquarters in Gardena, California for the fourth annual Carroll Shelby Tribute and Car Show. The event will celebrate the life – and the cars – of the late racing driver and entrepreneur, who passed away this month in 2012.
Says Carroll Shelby International Co-CEO Neil Cummings: “Carroll’s legacy will be celebrated with exciting cars and the enthusiasts who love them. Each year, we gather to pay tribute to this great automotive legacy. From the cars to the comradery and memories of Carroll, it is a wonderful place for Shelby enthusiasts to gather.”
Admission to the Carroll Shelby Tribute and Car Show will be free, while a $10 donation will earn attendees a special souvenir decal. Those who own cars from Shelby American or one of Ford’s many performance badges can register them for display at the Carroll Shelby Tribute website, for a donation of $40. Shelby itself will be displaying many an iconic machine, including the Shelby GT350 and Terlingua Mustangs, the Hertz “Rent-a-Racer” Mustang, and the Ford GT.
If you have the means, we highly recommend attending. If you can’t make it out, Carroll Shelby International encourages fans and enthusiasts the world over to rev their engines to salute the life and legacy of the late Mr. Shelby at 1pm Pacific Time.
