About Us


The Stable is Home to several world class Shelby Ford Mustangs including the Terlingua Racing Team V-6 Mustang and Dodge Viper. Terlingua, Texas is situated in the South Brewster County within sight of the Rio Grande. For many years, Terlingua was only known as a deserted mercury mining town. But for Carroll Shelby enthusiasts, the name, the place and its free spirited reputation have pretty much been the stuff of automotive legend. Terlingua started in the early 1960’s as a place for Shelby and a few racing friends to meet, unwind and hold chili cook-offs in the desert isolation of West Texas. But soon it became larger than life, much like the man himself.

The Stable hosts the annual Big Bend Octane Fest in Alpine for participants to fully experience car culture in the Big Bend.

Located in the downtown area of Alpine, The Stable serves as a magnet for car clubs and organizations related to the hobby. These groups are drawn to the mountains of West Texas for the enjoyment of driving on our scenic roadways. The Stable now serves as a gathering place for these enthusiasts and their cars.
