Team Shelby – Pacific Coast Region in partnership with the Blackhawk Automotive Museum http://www.blackhawkmuseum.org/ (a Smithsonian affiliate) conveniently located in the San Francisco East Bay suburb of Danville, is excited to bring this 4th annual charity event honoring the legacy of Carroll Shelby to NorCal “Powered by Ford” enthusiasts. This memorial car show is expected to feature Shelby, Ford GT, Cobra, Tiger and Boss vehicles. Although show entry requires a nominal donation, spectator attendance is free to all. Our special guest speaker this year is Dave Friedman as seen here: http://www.blackhawkmuseum.org/?tv=6424971002773504&dtv=4982982653771776&to=5859113502769152 . Some vehicle surprises from The Cobra Experience, Taormina Imports and Dynamic Auto West are in the works too. Tim McGrane, Executive Director of the Blackhawk Museum (and a former Barrett Jackson executive) will be on hand with Dave to help judge entries and issue some neat trophies!

Note: For ease of editing, I’ll maintain the list of Memorial Classic car show entries in Post #2 immediately below.
The show starts at 10am and ends at 2pm. Owners entering their vehicles in the show should arrive by 9:00am to allow adequate time for staging, and if located on the upper plaza, will not be able to exit until sometime just after 2pm. Please note that parking at one edge of the plaza is sometimes subject to overspray from the water fountains in windy conditions, although this is rare. Also, there are several restaurants in the complex to enjoy lunch at.
The Blackhawk Automotive Museum is located at 3700 Blackhawk Plaza Circle, Danville, CA 94506
