I've been a Shelby Fan ever since I first heard about the now legendary Cobra over 45 years ago. I had the privilege of owning one of Carroll's original 427 Cobras, several Shelby Mustangs and Tigers. 30 years later, I own a 427 replica which I treasure, drive and enjoy immensely.
Carroll created a team that rocketed across the racing stage like a comet. It says a lot about the man and his team's creation that it is the most replicated car ever...by far. His impact on car lovers is immeasurable.
The man is gone, but his legend will live forever.
Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles, Dave MacDonald...there's a heck of a reunion going on.
