Carroll Shelby Car Show and Tribute

This past weekend the Carroll Shelby Foundation held their second annual Carroll Shelby Car Show & Tribute at the organization’s headquarters in Gardena, CA. As you might expect, dozens of Shelby owners and enthusiasts showed up to celebrate the man who created the Cobra, GT350 and GT500. Shelby Mustangs of all eras were in attendance, including an impressive display of six 1965 GT350s.

Of course, there were more than just Mustangs in attendance, and genuine Cobra models were in abundance including the very first Cobra, CSX2000. There was also a 1967 Ford GT40 race car on display as well as a 1964 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe driven by Dan Gurney and Bob Bondurant to a class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

There was plenty to do at the show as well, with a Terlingua-style chili cook-off, a wine and beer garden and a panel discussion featuring guests like Bob Bondurant (former American race car driver), Gary Patterson (VP of Shelby American), Lynn Park (“Mr. Cobra”) and Allen Grant (former Team Shelby race car driver).
