Welcome to the Indiana Shelby American Automobile Club Spring Fling. There’s something magical about hearing a GT350’s exhaust note bouncing off the forest trees in a curvy, mountainous state park, and that something is simple: fun. Upon the Indiana SAAC’s formation in 1977, the Shelby Spring Fling quickly became a Brown County staple that has continued for over 40 years. The fling is a relaxing, fun, family oriented event for all Shelby and Mustang enthusiasts alike. Owning a Shelby (AC Cobra or Shelby Mustang) is certainly not a requirement to attend the Spring Fling, but it does put you among the unique in the crowd. Events begin Friday and continue through Sunday. Saturday is the big show down at the pool parking area. Cars are parked in their respective classes to make popular voting simple for the participants, with Concours Judging available for early generation Shelby vehicles. The show also includes a few select vendors and a lunch picnic.
Once the show concludes at 5 p.m. it’s back up to the Abe Martin Lodge for the dinner banquet. This includes a guest speaker, a few specialty awards presented by the Board of Directors, recognition for tenured members and the awards presentation from the show.
Park admission $7 per car in state, $9 out of state. Viewing of car show on Saturday is free. Car show is at 9 a.m.
