Besides Denver, Miller Motorsports and Las Vegas, we now will have another place for our pilgrimages.  The Shelby Foundation is selling a special shirt to raise funds for a museum collection of CS' personal stuff at the Gardena, CA  shop.  Already, some cars are  scheduled for rotation from the new Las Vegas shop museum, aka Carroll Shelby Heritage Center and the Carroll Shelby Museum.
Any SoCal members or SAAC chiefs have more on this venture?

The shirt:

 Cool

You know, I am wondering if any of these Shelby museums would take a car for a year or two from my collection.  That would be a good alternative to having to sell it to make room for others.  Any one know how this works?

That's quite the fund raiser for the museum. They're selling a rayon shirt for $150. and only $50 of it goes to the museum.  Roll Eyes

This museum looks like it will about CS more than the cars as it will have his personal items.  There are a lot of CS cars that he had at the Gardena warehouse.  I believe CSX 2000 is there now and will be rotated with the LV shop.   I expect most of what will be in the LV showroom display "Heritage" lobby will be what they have produced since the 1990's.  For the best view of the CS auto production and racing legacy, Boulder and Miller would be my choices.

Kiwi,

The line below the signature on the building has 3 hash marks indicating the reproduction signature, used on products such as photos (I have one that was given to me) models, etc. Actual signatures by CS have 2 hash marks. Just an FYI
