Club History


From a Proud Past - comes a Brilliant future
The Shelby American Automobile Club -- Motor City Region was established in 1975 by club founder Jeff Burgy. Carroll Shelby and the cars he was involved with are the original elements behind the club, but the direct ancestors were the Shelby Owners Association (SOA) and the Cobra Club. To find historical information on the club, newsletters starting from the early 70's were studied. After studying them, it was decided to let them speak for themselves with only a few comments. You will notice some names appearing repeatedly, these are the people who built the club and many remain a part of it today. Others have gone on to different interests, some to a better world  -- John C. Guyer
