    The man will be missed, his spirit will live on forever. He will go down in history with some of the greats. Truly a legend. R.I.P Carroll Shelby.

    This sucks.... he was an innovator to say the least, an icon. He leaves behind a great legacy. Any time you hear about a hot mustang. You always want to ask.. is it a Shelby?

    Any time I hear 8 cylinders screaming in chaotic harmony with that ear piercing music that is pure unadulterated American horsepower..... I'll think of him and smile.

    I still remember the first Shelby I saw, and said something like nice Mustang. Then I got schooled.

    My dad had a 66 Shelby GT. He got rid of it long before I was born though. Candy apple red with white stripes. I always loved looking at pics of that car.

    Now I'm contemplating getting a Shelby GT 500kr super snake. Guess I better act fast if I'm gonna do it. :(
