At its museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania, the Antique Auto Club of America has opened up a special exhibition, dedicated to that legend of American performance fokelore, Carroll Shelby.

The exhibit is the end result of a local Shelby club meeting last fall, where club member and racer Dan Reiter teamed up with the museum’s curator Jeff Bliemeister and local collector Earl Mowrey to put together a collection celebrating the legendary Texan’s achievements in the automotive world.

And it’s an impressive ensemble. Mowrey and a group of his friends designed the exhibit and what makes this one stand out is the fact that it covers each era and facet of Shelby’s auto career, right from the early days in racing, represented by a AC Bristol, through the Cobras and Mustangs he’s most famous for, his success in SCCA and at LeMans with the GT40 (shown above), to the Shelby Dodge vehicles of the 1980s and even the Olds Aurora powered Shelby Series 1.

However, like most good things in life, the exhibit won’t last, so if you’re interested in visiting, make sure you get yourself to the AACA museum before April 24. Click on the link below for more details.
