The Larry H. Miller Total Performance Auto Museum, at Miller Motorsports Park just outside of Salt Lake City is a must-visit for Shelby/Ford Enthusiasts. It is not a massive complex like The Petersen or LeMay, but if you are a Shelby fan it has everything you could ever dream of.

Cars like the 1966 Le Mans-winning MKII Ford GT40 driven by Chris Amon and Bruce McLaren, some of the earliest production Shelby AC Cobra Roadster and Miller's personal favorite, the 1964 Cobra Daytona Coupe—the GT winner at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Daytona Continental 24 Hour, 12 Hours of Sebring and the 1965 FIA GT World Championship (it's not a kit).
