A paean to Carroll Shelby

The name alone stirs excitement among enthusiasts of American performance cars. This coming weekend, the followers of the late Carroll Shelby will have an opportunity to enjoy a multi-day celebration of Shelby’s life and automotive creations at his base of operations. The 7th Annual Carroll Shelby Tribute Car Show takes place this coming Friday and Saturday, May 3 and 4, at Carroll Shelby’s Store, located at 19021 S. Figueroa St., Gardena CA 90248. It’s a rollicking tribute to everything the legendary Texan touched.

Besides a huge display of Shelby automobiles organized by Shelby-American clubs in and around Los Angeles, there’s other entertainment planned. Carrol Connors, who wrote Hey Little Cobra for the Rip Chords back in the 1960s, will perform during the festivities. There will also be a screening of the Elvis Presley musical film Spinout, in which the King tools around in a Shelby Cobra. Speaking of which, the Cobra Experience of Martinez, California, will be exhibiting CSX2154, the first competition Cobra ever produced by Shelby American. Interested?
