Memorial-Classic---Danville-051020141_zpsbbdd41ff.jpg

Team Shelby – Pacific Coast Region in partnership with the Blackhawk Automotive Museum http://www.blackhawkmuseum.org/ conveniently located in the SF East Bay suburb of Danville, is excited to bring this inaugural event honoring the legacy of Carroll Shelby to NorCal “Powered by Ford” enthusiasts. This memorial car show will feature Shelby, Ford GT, Cobra and Boss vehicles. Although show entry requires a nominal fee, spectator attendance is free to all. Several special guests have been invited and are expected to attend. Tim McGrane, Executive Director of the Blackhawk Museum (and a former Barrett Jackson executive) will be on hand to help judge entries and issue some neat trophies!

RSVP’s and pre-payment of a donation entry fee of $30 (or more if you wish :) per vehicle is required for this event so we can anticipate parking layout on the museum’s photo-op perfect plaza. Entries will be limited to 40 vehicles. 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.cscf.org/ and Wheels for Chairs http://www.blackhawkmuseum.org/w4w.html

Payment Link: http://www.gofundme.com/7vd000 - Reservations are requested by Sunday May 4th. 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 Museum honoring Carroll Shelby with other “Powered by Ford” enthusiasts. Please note the year and model of your vehicle when replying so trophy categories / quantities can be determined in advance based upon expected attendance.

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 1pm. Owners entering their vehicles in the show should arrive by 8:30am to allow adequate time for staging, and once on the plaza, will not be able to exit until sometime after 1pm. 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 plaza where the car show will take place and reserved spectator parking appears in the lower right corner https://maps.google.com/maps?q=danville+ca&ll=37.800926,-121.917591&spn=0.001406,0.002051&client=safari&oe=UTF-8&hnear=Danville,+Contra+Costa+County,+California&gl=us&t=h&z=20

Any question, please ask here or leave me a PM. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday May 10th in Danville!

Thanks,

Jim

Jim this looks like a great event. If I make it out there it will be as a spectator only but it would be nice to have a few 12/13 Boss 302's participating in the event. Anyone else going to participate?

Right now I'm a definite maybe as this is just down the road a piece from me.
 
Seems like it would be a great event. I would be tempted to stop by and be a spectator.

I want to welcome Taormina Imports aboard as a sponsoring supporter of the Carroll Shelby Memorial Classic and to thank them for their generous donation to the Carroll Shelby Foundation and the Blackhawk's Wheels for Wheelchairs Foundation!

Several of their clients will be in attendance to showcase their awesome Cobras and spend the day with other enthusiasts celebrating Carroll's legacy.

70% of the available upper plaza car show parking spaces are now taken. If you have been thinking about entering your Shelby, Ford GT, Cobra or Boss - now is a good time to do so.

Sounds great!

Jim,

Do I understand you correctly that all cars currently registered will be on the upper plaza or is there something I am missing?

bretlasalle,

Yes, all of the registered vehicles listed above in Post #2 will be parked on the upper plaza for this charity event.

There is no charge to attend the car show and we'll have reserved parking in the lower parking lot for spectators.

Hope to see you on May 10!

Just a heads up. There are only 3 spaces left to reserve on the Blackhawk's upper plaza for this event.

I look forward to seeing my fellow Boss owners in Danville on May 10th, whether you enter your 302 or come as a spectator.

I want to thank the Shelby, Ford GT, Cobra, Boss and Tiger club members here in Northern California for their enthusiasm and support of the inaugural Carroll Shelby Memorial Classic at the Blackhawk Automotive Museum this coming May 10th. The event is now sold out and registration is closed. We continue to welcome as spectators any "Powered by Ford" enthusiasts who want to join us and we look forward to our Entrants enjoying a memorable day!

As seen below, our weather forecast for May 10th looks perfect for the Carroll Shelby Memorial Classic at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville. I would suggest Entrants bring a lightweight jacket for the 8:30am arrival, but temps by our 10am start should be very comfortable. Also, to prevent sunburn, it’s always a good idea to apply some sunscreen and wear a comfortable hat. We’ll have bottled water on hand, so please stay hydrated. You’re welcome to bring a folding chair for use on the perimeter of the plaza. A photographer will be on hand and a link will be posted here soon after the event so you can download pictures. We’ll see you this Saturday!

I want to thank all of the Entrants who participated in the inaugural Carroll Shelby Memorial Classic at the Blackhawk Automotive Museum, and all of the spectators who attended the event. I also want to thank our sponsor Taormina Imports for their generous financial contributions to the Carroll Shelby and Wheelchair Foundations and to the Blackhawk Museum for hosting the event. I also appreciate the support we received from members of the Team Shelby, Ford GT, Cobra, Boss and Tiger clubs here in Northern California.

It was a perfect day to spend with other “Powered by Ford” enthusiasts celebrating Carroll Shelby’s legacy. Here’s a link to some initial pictures from the Museum’s Facebook page and a short video of the “moment of noise” for Carroll. Enjoy!

Here's the photographer's link to the pics from the Carroll Shelby Memorial Classic at the Blackhawk this past Saturday.

I think Perry took over 500 pictures, but only 200 have been uploaded so far, so stay tuned...
