The Los Angeles Shelby American Automobile Club is hosting the inaugural Carroll Shelby Tribute and Car Show on May 11 at the headquarters of the Carroll Shelby Foundation in Gardena, Calif. Shelby, the legendary auto racer, designer, and entrepreneur, died a year ago at age 89.

“Carroll Shelby changed the course of history and touched millions of lives through his racing, his companies, and his charity,” says Randy Richards, the president of the club. “He challenged us to honor his legacy by continuing his work. This annual event will be a celebration for everyone who shares Carroll’s passion for performance and pursuit of excellence, while also supporting causes he truly believed in.”

The event, which is open to the public, runs from 10 am to 3 pm. Admission is free, but a $10 donation is suggested. The donations will support the Carroll Shelby Foundation, a charity that helps children who have life-threatening illnesses, supports medical organizations, and funds automotive scholarships and educational programs in automotive-related fields.

The show will feature such Shelby rarities as vintage GT350 and GT500 models, original Cobras, Ford GT40s, and even a few Dodge Shelbys from the 1980s. An awards ceremony will honor the top vehicles. Shelby owners interested in displaying their cars can find the registration form online. (310.327.5072, www.carrollshelbytribute.com)
