DALLAS – June 23, 2015 – Shelby American will bring its latest line up of high performance vehicles to the Sixth Annual Shelby Car Show hosted by the Shelby Cobra Association of Texas and LegacyTexas Bank on June 27 in Plano, Texas. The one day event is free to the public, with hundreds of vintage and current collectible Ford cars including several Shelby American vehicles making their Texas debut.
“This event is a very personal one for everyone at Shelby American,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American and Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International. “As a North Texan, Carroll always called it ‘home’ and most of his family still resides in the area. This year we’re pleased to bring several new Shelbys in Texas for the first time. From our 700 horsepower truck to the Super Snake muscle car, each of these vehicles is worthy of the Shelby name.”
The show kicks off at 10 a.m. and features the full line-up of Shelby American cars and trucks including the all-new 750+hp Shelby Super Snake, 700+hp Baja 700 Raptor and the all-new 630+hp Shelby GT. Shelby family members will attend and exhibit some of the cars from their collection, including the 1949 MG TC Roadster that was Carroll’s first racecar.
“We appreciate Shelby American’s support of a show that celebrates my grandfather’s amazing achievements,” said Aaron Shelby, LegacyTexas Bank executive vice president, grandson of Carroll Shelby and board member for the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “We started this show while he was still with us and Carroll encouraged his friends in the area to take their car out of the garage to attend. We have continued to honor him by gathering his cars, his friends, his company and his family every year.”
The annual event has become one of the largest Shelby shows in the Southwest. The car show will be held at the bank’s corporate headquarters at the intersection of Preston Road and Legacy Drive. For more information, visit LegacyTexasBank.com/ShelbyCarShow.
