He has been sick awhile, what a shame. great american icon in the automotive field. Now all the rich bastards that have Shelby's in the car collections just got a boost in value on cars they have probably never driven :evil:

RIP Mr Shelby you are a true legend...

A genuine Shelby Cobra with all aluminum body is the ONLY 'Factory' PERFORMANCE car I would ever want. Carrol was a non pretentious, humble man. A gearheads gearhead. The world of cars became better when Carrol raised the bar.
