POMONA, Calif. (October, 2011) – The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum announces the Premier Ford-Cobra-Shelby Reunion with an exhibit honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Cobra and a weekend of related events.

“We’ve wanted to celebrate the Cobra for a number of years.” Said Parks Museum executive director Tony Thacker, “The first car was assembled right here in So-Cal at Dean Moon’s shop in Santa Fe Springs and, in 2012, the dates align for an exciting inaugural Ford-Cobra-Shelby Reunion—the first of many because there are reasons to celebrate for many years to come: the Cobra Coupe, The Shelby Mustang; the GT40 to name but a few.”

The list of activities is still being developed but will include:

• A new exhibit honoring the Cobra’s 50th birthday
• A banquet honoring Carroll Shelby
• Track time on the vintage Pomona Road Race course (1956-’63)
• The annual Fabulous Ford Funday

“We’re extremely excited about this event,” continued Thacker. “The opportunity to incorporate the Parks Museum and the various facilities here at Fairplex So-Cal is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time.

“There’s the old Pomona Road Race course which operated from 1956 through ’63 that saw all the greats race including Shelby, Balchowsky, Bondurant, Ginther and even Mickey Thompson.

“There are also high-performance driving schools here, a superb Sheraton hotel and, of course, Auto Club Raceway at Pomona—one of the world’s most famous dragstrips. Put it all together with the Fabulous Ford Funday scheduled for Sunday, April 22, and you have the ingredients for a truly memorable event.”

The Ford-Cobra-Shelby Reunion is scheduled for April 19-22, 2012, and most events will be centered at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, Pomona, California 91768.
