Families and car enthusiasts from across North Texas turned out in large numbers to get a close up look at iconic Shelby Cobras and Mustangs at the fourth annual Shelby Car Show hosted by LegacyTexas Bank.
Over 150 autos, a record for the show, were on display at the event, including vintage models from the Shelby Cobra Association of Texas and cars from the Shelby family’s private collection. The Shelby American team was back again this year and showcased two new Shelby models, the Shelby Raptor truck and Shelby Focus ST, as well as the Shelby GT 350 and Shelby GT 500 Super Snake wide body edition.
The car show was open to the public and helped kick off the bank’s 50th anniversary celebration. A crowd estimated at 2,500 was on hand for the event held at the LegacyTexas Bank corporate headquarters in Plano.
“It’s great to see such a large crowd again this year, and this is our largest number of car entries since we began hosting the event in 2010,” said LegacyTexas Bank President Phil Dyer. “We are glad to see enthusiasm around our show continue to grow each year. This is a great opportunity for us to do something special for our customers, employees and the community.”
Attendees of the car show ranged from families enjoying a Saturday outing to serious collectors, all of whom enjoyed seeing the large number of Cobras and Mustangs seldom gathered in one location. Multiple members of the Shelby family were in attendance as well, adding to the event’s family-oriented atmosphere.
LegacyTexas has a long association with the Shelby family of North Texas. The bank is majority owned by the family of the late auto designer Carroll Shelby.
