FROM THE MUSEUM WEB SITE - Guess the prices exceeded the fun factor so not many were registered?
The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum announced today a change in the schedule for the Ford-Cobra-Shelby Reunion.
“Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, we have had to postpone the track part of our celebration of Cobra’s 50th birthday,” said NHRA Museum Executive Director Tony Thacker. “The Reunion will proceed as a one-day event at the NHRA Museum with the following activities planned for Saturday, April 21:
Show ’N Shine at the Museum: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Open to all Cobras, GT40s, Ford GTs, all Ford and Ford-powered vehicles and all Shelby vehicles.
Panel Discussion: 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
“Speed Merchants of Venice” 50th Anniversary Cobra Exhibit presented by Racing Division and curated by Lynn Park.
Exhibit Opening & Cocktail Reception: 5:00 pm
Banquet honoring Carroll Shelby with memorabilia auction: 7:00 pm
“Despite the change of plans we remain extremely excited about the Reunion,” continued Thacker. “We have a great group of speakers for the afternoon Panel Discussion. Also, guest curator Lynn ‘Mr. Cobra’ Park and Michael Holmes of Racing Division are putting together an amazing exhibit of previously unpublished photographs and rarely seen Cobras. That alone will be worth the price of admission.
“Finally, we will honor Carroll Shelby and the Shelby American employees with a banquet that will include an auction of signed items to raise money for the Carroll Shelby Foundation and the NHRA Museum.”
The Ford-Cobra-Shelby Reunion is scheduled for April 21 at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, Pomona, California.
