A Northwest Tribute to Carroll Shelby

On September 29, 2012, we attended the Heritage Car Show in Independence, Oregon, which included a Northwest Tribute to Carroll Shelby. Former Team Shelby driver, Allen Grant, was there for the entire show, talking about his years knowing, working and racing with Carroll. His stories were touching and they made everyone at the show feel like they got to know Carroll a little more on a personal level. Thank you Allen for sharing those stories with us. It was a pleasure and an honor to meet you!

The turnout was fantastic, the weather was perfect and the stream of Cobras, Shelbys, Fords, Chevy's, Mopars and more that participated in the Memorial Cruise, led by Allen Grant, seemed to go on forever!
