“Each month, our breakfast club cruise-ins gather enthusiasts from every corner of Los Angeles for a morning of conversation, laughter and some truly amazing cars,” Terry Karges, the museum’s executive director, said. “Bruce Meyer’s American Car Cruise-in will deliver all that and more.”

In this case, “more” will be the panel discussion — moderated by car collector and museum board member Bruce Meyer — that will focus on the early days of Shelby American and events leading up to and featured in the Ford v Ferrari movie.

Panelists include:

• A.J. Baime, author of Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans

• Charles Agapiou, Shelby chief mechanic and crew chief for the Ford GT40 driven by Ken Miles

• Peter Miles, son of Ken Miles and former mechanic for Troutman and Barnes, Precision Performance and crew chief for Ivan Stewart’s off-road team

• Aaron Shelby, one of Carroll Shelby’s grandsons

• Peter Brock, Shelby Daytona Coupe designer

• Alan Grant, former Shelby American driver

• Lenny Shabes, television producer and director

Cruise-in attendees will see a wide selection of classic and modern American performance and custom cars with a massive turnout of original Cobras, Shelby vehicles, continuation cars and more. A special parking area will be provided for Shelby vehicles.
