Shelby dies

Recommended Posts

Sad day for petrolheads, Carroll Shelby dies aged 89. He was responsible for the success of the GT40, AC Cobra and of course the Shelby Mustang GT350, plus countless other cars, including the Dodge Viper.

RIP Carroll.

Have to wonder whether there will ever be any other people such as this that turn the automotive world on its head to such effect?


All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I agree as well with Scott as above. Also it seems that government regulations and legislation have put a damper on innovation as well. Less rules to follow back in the Shelby hotrod days. Try building your own car nowadays in the USA, it would not be an easy task to get it titled. Edd China's road legal couch would never be on a road legally here in the USA.

Sadly enough the Shelby name did ot have the same aura on modern vehicles as it did on the ones i the earlier years.
