Shelbyfest

In 2006, six men that had just gotten their 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustangs met in Creve Couer Park to get to know each other and show off their cars. Essentially dubbed the "St Louis Seven" since they were joined by another who's GT500 had not arrived at the dealership yet, the display caused quite a spectacle attracting passers by who stopped for a chance to see the most exciting addition to the automotive world in a long time. Many pictures were taken and then posted on what is now the Team Shelby website. Talk of another gathering lead one of the attendees to suggest a picturesque farm setting in the heart of Missouri's wine country. The first Shelbyfest took place in Hermann and attracted 26 cars. Owners came from 5 states to participate and once again drew quite a crowd at Hermann Ford, where the event was held. Since then, the event has grown beyond the capacity of streets of Hermann and will take place in Jefferson City, Missouri for the first time in 2015 with expected record attendance. While the main show will take place along High Street in the downtown area, look for more activities like a country cruise, an ice cream social, Boulevard Muscle Car Mania cruise, and a full autocross event.
