Our Inaugural Event will be:  Spring Get Together at the Autobahn (Thanks Larry for hosting this event!!), May 11th at the Autobahn, in Joliet, IL.
This will be a very informal Windy City Region Shelby Get Together to meet, greet, see great cars, and other surprises.

As Larry mentioned, there will be a small fee of $5 to cover simple costs.

Included in the fee is a great venue and tour of the Autobahn.  We will be able to tour the entire facilities.

Cars, Cars, Cars....................or should I say, Shelbys, Shelbys, Shelbys!!

We welcome classic Shelbys, newer Shelbys and Restomode/Clone Shelbys!!

First 50 cars will receive a magnet dash tag celebrating our innauguaral event.

We will provide more details of the event as we get closer.  In the meantime, please confirm if you are coming and / or if anyone else will be joining you.

This will be a great opportunity to take your Shelby for an early spring ride, visit with other local enthusiasts, see some great cars, and get to visit the Autobahn!!

Here are some additional details for our Inaugural Event at the Autobahn:

Gates will open at 10am and we will end our festivities at 3pm.

Larry has arranged for our cars to be parked in three categories:  Clones and Tributes, Vintage, and Late Models.

In addition, all cars will have an opportunity to drive their cars on the track.  We will be doing this at around noon.
You must pay the $5 entry fee and sign the waver to bring your car in.  This will be done at the entrance at the start of our day.

We ask that everyone spread the word so we can have as many folks attending as possible.

Larry is working to get a very special car at the event.  Hint:  It's a car owned by a very historic and famous race car driver!!

More to come!

We do have great trailer parking and good food and you can see the world famous autobahn race track and there will be races that day. You also get to tour the track at lunch time and we will be on the south track which is over two miles. You also do not want to miss the first annual show do you. Larry

We are very excited to be a part of this inaugural event. For anyone who hasn't been to the Autobahn, you are in for a real treat. Add in the great Shelby' and lots of cool people and we have an absolute must do event!

We will be set up at the show to talk about the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show in November, and of course, our Shelby Snakepit display.

Thanks go out to Larry and the Windy City SAAC Region for making this happen. Let's make sure this is an annual event!  Party on

Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone attending. As usual my car will home in the garage up on jack stands. But that will give me more time to talk "Shelby" with everyone.
Jose and Larry have put a lot of effort getting this off the ground. I just hope the weather cooperates.
See you there ..................................
