Just 10 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip lies a slice of American automotive excellence, The Shelby Heritage Center and workshop.
Both admission to the Heritage Center and the workshop tour are free, though if you can leave the official Shelby store without buying something you are less affected by temptation than I.
The tour requires guests to be behind a wall, as an active work floor has its inherent risks, but it offers a fun way for guests to see the sleek cars being built in front of their very eyes. Alongside pictures and a lot of automotive eye candy, guests might have the opportunity to add their own little mark on the building’s walls.
The Shelby Heritage Center allows guest to get up close to some of Shelby’s most impressive work as well as what is in the future for the company.
