  • IF CARS COULD TALK – 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SHELBY GT500
    11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
    Like ACM, the story of the Shelby GT500 is part art and part science. In 1967, Shelby and Ford combined efforts to produce a powerful performance pony car that would beat the competition on the track. This is the story of the Shelby GT500 1967-2017 as told by ACM Volunteer Heidi Geise and Special Guest Missy Willert.

    Free, with Museum admission. Bring a lunch, or enjoy a meal from Classics by Pacific Grill.
