    Carroll Shelby is an icon of the automotive world. For over 50 years his name has served as a virtual synonym for the term "automotive performance." Shelby began his career as a race car driver and before being forced to retire due to health reasons, won the prestigious 1959 24 Hours of LeMans driving for Aston Martin. Although he was twice named Sports Illustrated's Driver of the Year (1956 and 1957) he is much better known worldwide for his work in his second career as an automobile builder. From his first project that combined the British built two-seat AC Bristol with a Ford V8 to create the "Cobra," to his current partnership with Ford, Shelby has always had his sights set on building the ultimate American sports car. Along the way he has created a long line of popular and extremely successful street and race vehicles bearing the names Cobra, Daytona Coupe, GT40, GT350 and GT500 Mustangs and the Chrysler Omni GLHS.

    General Motors' Parade of Progress is on the road again dramatizing the vital role of science in American life ... "presenting," as Harlow H. Curitce, president of General Motors put it, "a picture of America on the move toward better lives for all of us."

    The new and exciting 1953 version of the Parade is an ultra-modern presentation, high-lighting the enormous progress the country has made in recent years. Visitors, for example, we will hear the scratchy reception of the radio of 1925 as compared to modern high-fidelity microwave transmission -- will watch a tiny jet plane swoosh across the stage and take a fanciful flight into outer space.
