Tour The Shelby American Collection

July 27 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Host: Andy Mortenson
Date: Saturday, July 27th
Location: Del Taco restaurant at 8100 Northfield Blvd.

Time: 9:30 AM

Dedicated to the legacy of Carroll Shelby and the Shelby American Team, the Shelby American
Collection celebrates the rich heritage of the world’s most famous racing cars. From Shelby’s
British AC predecessor and the 289 and 427 race and street Cobras, to the rare Daytona and
Willment Coupes, to the revolutionary Ford GT40 and the GT350 Shelby Mustangs, the Shelby
American Collection has some of the rarest, most valuable and authentic cars on display
anywhere in the world. The museum is also home to an extensive collection of memorabilia, art,
race records, period photographs and tributes to the pioneer drivers of the era, and the dramatic
histories and life stories of Carroll Shelby, Enzo Ferrari, Henry Ford and other icons of 1960s
auto design, industry and racing lore.

We last visited the Shelby Collection in 2018. Cars are removed and added periodically so there
will have been some changes to those on display. One addition is the GT40 driven by Ken Miles
to a controversial second place finish in the 1966 Le Mans race which should be familiar to
anyone who saw the movie, “Ford vs Ferrari”.

We plan to meet on Saturday, July 27 th , at 9:30AM in the parking lot of the Del Taco restaurant
at 8100 Northfield Blvd., which is located just north of the Super Target store at Northfield.
We’ll convoy from there and anticipate arriving at the Shelby Collection soon after it opens.
The Shelby American Collection is located at 5020 Chaparral Court in Boulder. They’re open
from 10:00AM to 4:00PM on Saturdays and there is a $5.00 admission fee for adults.
