RIP Carroll Shelby


Recommended Posts

Kirk will be saddened to hear the man who autographed his Tiger has passed away at the age of 89. frown Carroll Shelby was a legendary car developer who made fast cars go faster.

The Shelby Cobra and Mustangs in particular and more recently the Viper have felt the experience of his magic touch.

I never was a Ford guy, but you can't fault a guy who takes a small, lightweight, car (AC) and crams far too many ponies (289 Ford V-8) under the hood. That is what America is all about, right? It was seriously gratifing to watch the Ford GT hand Enzo Ferrari his lunch, and more than once, too. Well done Carroll. Race In Peace.
