4A Carroll Shelby Memorial Classic – Blackhawk Museum – Saturday May 13, 2017


Recommended Posts



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!


RSVP’s and pre-payment of a charity donation of $35 per entered vehicle is required for this event being held on the lower plaza. Upper Plaza reservations are now Sold Out. Please use the GoFundMe link below to facilitate this transaction. When your payment is confirmed, this will be noted on the roster below. Donated entry fees will be shared with the Carroll Shelby Foundation http://www.shelby.com/?topic=csf and Wheels for Chairs http://www.wheelchairfoundation.org/ .


GoFundMe Payment Link: https://www.gofundme.com/carroll-shelby-memorial-classic - Reservations are requested by Monday May 8th. Thanks!


So mark your calendars and post-up if you’re interested in joining us with your entry - or as a spectator, for a great day at the Blackhawk honoring Carroll Shelby with other “Powered by Ford” enthusiasts. Please note the year and model of your vehicle when replying.


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


Here is an aerial view of the upper and lower plazas where the car show will take place and reserved spectator parking appears at the bottom.

Weather forecast for Saturday's event in Danville is clear and on the cool side.


Also, 2 upper plaza attendees who will not be able to attend have instructed me to auction off their slots and donate the proceeds to the Foundations we are supporting.


If you're interested, please email me at svtnaja.tspcr@gmail.com

See you on Saturday!

Can I still register for this or am I too late?




Yes, you can still register for the show as there are available spaces on the lower plaza for $35 https://www.gofundme.com/carroll-shelby-memorial-classic


In case you are interested, there is a remaining upper plaza space available at auction for $100 (see post #17 above).


Any question, please let me know. Thanks.

Thanks to Jim and staff who helped put this together. A great bunch of folks brought out their cars and enjoyed the venue. The weather could not have been any better. These photos were taken from the upper plaza.
