Damn.

Now there is a real piece of genuine real Americana that is now lost. A man who took on Ferrari and kicked their ass to the curb.

Oddly I thought he died several years ago, guess its cause he rarely ever showed anywhere.

Way to go Shelby, he had a great run.

Ford uses Eaton and Whipple, but Shelby uses Kenne Bell.

Dude had an awesome life and lived to 89. Not sure what there's to be sad about. While not being a huge fan of mustangs in general, those with his stamp on it are always quite elegant and attractive to look at, not to mention everything else about good about them.

So I'm happy the guy lived in our life and gave us some kick ass cars.

I thought I remember reading once about all the surgeries that man had over his lifetime; it was more then anyone I've ever heard of outside of plastic surgery freaks.
