Shelby American, 2021Shelby American was started by race car driver and car manufacturer, Carrol Shelby, creator of the AC Cobra and Ford GT (that won Lemans). He continued to modify existing frames with higher performance engines and suspension until his death in 2012.
His company continues on and is still turning crappy Fords into acceptable driving machines. (My editor takes exception to this sentence).
ArrivalI drove way down the Las Vegas strip to the Shelby Experience (almost on the desert edge it's so far south). Tucked away against the interstate, it doesn't look like much from the outside.
The ExperienceSo many cars, original AC Cobras, newer Cobras, ones in between, the iconic GT from the Ford vs. Ferrari movie. So much.
SummaryIf you're a car person, this is a must see. I am a car person, and not just for European cars. I appreciate all interesting and fast vehicles.
You can spend as much on merchandise as you can a car, I think. Total shop deck out (I won't show my shop, it's just a functional and very plain space). Bring your wallet because I think it is impossible to leave without purchasing something.
