96 THE SHOP OCTOBER 2021 \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ lassic Recreations, the iconic builder of high-performance custom vehicles including Shelby continuation cars, has been selected by Carroll Shelby Licensing Inc. to introduce a new concept: Shelby Garage. Shelby Garage is a one-stop shop for service, repair and modification of late- model American muscle cars and trucks from Ford, GM, Dodge and more. The first shop is now open in Texas, with plans to expand to other cities nationwide. Distinguished from Shelby American in Las Vegas, which converts vehicles into officially licensed Shelbys that are included in the Shelby Worldwide Registry, Shelby Garage will meet the needs of a variety of late-model muscle car and truck enthu- siasts who are looking for performance and appearance upgrades to their current vehicles, according to a release announcing the new business. "Carroll Shelby was the father of Amer- ican muscle, so it only makes sense for the Shelby brand to evolve into providing service, performance and aesthetic upgrades for all American muscle vehicles," says Jason Engel, founder and VP of design and engineering at Classic Recreations. "When asked to develop this brand, the focus was on filling a need for people who've had a hard time finding a shop that understands the unique needs of a high-performance vehicle in contrast to the average driver." Engel adds that unique customization is a driving force behind the effort. "Just like Carroll did with the early Ford Mustangs, our goal is to help enthusiasts make their vehicles truly one of a kind." Shelby Garage will be staffed by trained technicians with years of experience working on officially licensed Shelbys and other high-performance vehicles. "Shelby Garage is for enthusiasts who are looking for a reliable and knowledgeable spe- cialty shop they can trust," the release notes. Not coincidentally, the first Shelby Garage is located in Dallas, where Car- roll Shelby got his start. The facility covers more than 95,000 square feet. Depending on their budget, customers can order officially licensed Shelby, Ford Performance and other aftermarket parts directly from Shelby Garage as well as schedule installation and service appoint- ments out of the Dallas location. Additionally, Shelby Garage features a full online merchandise store with officially licensed Shelby apparel and accessories, as well as exclusive gear from Classic Recre- ations.
