Shelby American Museum and Tour Las Vegas Speedway



Shelby.  It's a legendary name in the American automotive industry.  For more than a half of a century the name Shelby has represented dream automobiles.  The most memorable to me are the Cobra and the Mustang GT350 and GT500.  All cars that were on the top of my wish list.

Shelby American Inc. is alive and well in Las Vegas.  They are located at the Las Vegas Speedway, a short drive north of downtown Las Vegas.   Shelby operates a both a Museum and  a factory.  The Museum is open Monday -  Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturdays 10:15 am to 2:00 pm.  There is also an organized tour.  The Tour gets you onto the factory floor in addition to the Museum.  The tour happens once a day to 10:30 am. Its best to be at the facility by 10:15 if you want to go on the tour.  There are no reservations required

The museum hold classic Shelby vehicles and well as prototype cars.  How much does all this cost, you ask.  Nothing.  Admission to the museum is free and there is no cost for the Tour.  Such a deal.

The Link to their site is http://www.shelbyautos.com/tours.asp.  Have a good time.
