Carroll, your 427 ac cobra was the first plastic model I built that I really took great care to finish. I built it when my dad died in 1971. I took great pride in all my model builds from that point on. I was 10 at the time, 51 when you left the track. God bless you, and your foundations future. I know it meant so much to you and the kids.
Forever Live The Cobra, The Snake!

June 30, 2012
I just read today that Shelby passed away... I cant believe it. Huge shock to me. And to think I always dreamed if I ever won the lottery id go over to shelby's facility in Nevada and buy the mustang I want the way I wanted it and have shelby deliver and hand me the keys to my new car. lol... that was my dream but I guess Shelby was meant for other things. Perhaps he's racing with other fallen racing legends now. My sympathies to Shelby's family and to his company.

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.
May 25, 2012
Rest In Peace Carroll as a boy i dreamed of owning a Shelby and may be test driving a Cobra, but i also wanted to meet you because of so much i read about you but one day when i own a Shelby on that day i know i will finally meet you still keep riding in our hearts. My condolences to the Shelby he was a great man and will truly be missed.

My family, friends, and I are all terribly saddened by the loss of such an amazing, revolutionary, powerful man. He changed the world through his cars and philanthropy. His fervor for what he did inspired me a few years ago to get my hands greasy under my own hood, learn about my machine, and do everything possible to become one with the mechanical beauty. I'm sure he'll turn the golden paths above into his personal race track. God bless his soul. In Nomini Parti, et Filu, et Spiritu Sancti.

May 18, 2012
My heartfelt prayers and love go to the family and friends he leaves behind. I had the privledge of getting another member of NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida, when Mr. Shelby was here to autograph my friends book, which Mr. Shelby had written the "intro" in, even though Mr. Shelby wasn't in the greatest of health. Yet he took the time not only to autograph the book but had about a 15 minute conversation with him and asked about his "Shelby Kit Car" was coming along. Mr. Shelby never forgot where he came from, nor how much he is respected, with his God given "talent" and a wonderful person. {My friend and son had tried for about 5 hours, just for the autograph, as he had brought his book there that day before I got involved.} I believe God puts us where we need to be and Mr. Shelby is smiling on all of us from Heaven.
My friend was not only a "Happy and thankful person," not only with the autograph, but with meeting and talking with him. I get thanked every year from my friend and fellow NHRA, now with the new name,
May 18, 2012
We Love our 68 GT 500 KR convertible.

My father worked for Carroll Shelby from 1962 to 1969 at the Venice, CA plant as a sheetmetal worker, fabricating the awesome Cobra bodies. That has been a source of pride for me throughout the years.
I'm hoping that now, free of pain & restraints, Mr. Shelby is racing his own cars on the big oval track in the sky...pedal to the metal!

May 14, 2012
My parents published a little rag called Road & Track so I always knew Carroll, or Shel as i often heard him referred to. I went to LeMans in 1966 when he asked me to be a gopher,I was 14. A year or two later he tried to give me one of those Cobras' that he couldn't sell ,but my father said no way...16 yr old driving that ! We had lost Ken Miles recently and it hurt us all. I had the pleasure of working for Shelby Automobiles in the late 80's and early 90's as one of the directors. Carroll came into my office one day and told me he was going to get a transplant. I'll skip his joke here. I 'm glad he got so many extra years he thought he would never have. I'm glad I had over 50 years of knowing him. My heart goes out to family , he will be missed .
Warm regards,
John R. Bond, Jr.

May 14, 2012
Mr. Shelby was my hero. He was a legend. As a current owner of 1964½ Mustang and 2009 Mustang GT, I always wanted to own a Shelby GT500, but haven't made it yet. My boyfriend is a proud owner of a Dodge Viper. We both have admired Mr. Shelby for many years. I shudder at the thought of the automotive industry without Mr. Shelby's creative genius. There are still tons of us who want to drive HP. I challenge the automotive industry to keep HP and style in the memory of Mr. Carroll Shelby. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. The Shelby Family have my deepest sympathy.
May 14, 2012
a great man will be missed

May 12, 2012
My condolence to the family, friends and fans of Carroll Shelby. The World lost a very intelligent and special man who Everyone needs to know Shelby's Story. Shelby is one of my best heroes, which I meet at a 2003 Shelby American Collection Holiday party. What cool racing stories were told and it was a cold night in which I will cherish forever. One awesome memory when I said to Shelby, this would of been a great time for your chili. He said, on the lines of thats right and laughed. Wish I could of talked to him again and been older for Shelby's chili parties in the 70's. Cannot believe it is true. May your Foundation and Wild Cars Live Forever.
Sincerly, a Hot Rodder in Colorado,

Carroll Shelby was the best. The closest I ever got to a Shelby was when in Las Vegas I rented a Hurst Shelby for a week when I returned it there was not too much rubber left on the tires. It was the most exciting car I ever drove. Carroll has been my idol since the 60's. He will be deeply missed.
RIP Carrrol

First saw a shelby mustang at a local rally, I was ten back then, but noises like that stick with you.

To the Shelby family

I met Carroll for the first time in 1992 at the western regional chili cookoff in Rosamond,Ca. He came up behind my wife and shocked he with a hug.He hadn't seen her in a number of years and that's when he introduced himself. We talked for about an hour about everything in racing and friends. It turned out that he was friends with my father-in-law "Kong" Jackson. I couldn't believe the wealth of knowledge this man had and the love he had for it and life and family.

He was truly a one of a kind man and I'll never ever forget the time I had shared with him. When I told my wife of his passing yesterday she was so so sad,he was like her 2nd father. We will miss him dearly.

RIP Carroll you were the greatest!

In the early 1970's when I moved to Southern California I took a brown bag package of his Chili Mix that ended with the words 'and may God help you' as it was suppose to be HOT, and decoupaged it on a beautiful piece of wood and put it in a collection on my dining room wall - not too long after that they didn't put the words 'and may God help you' on them any more. Wonderful chili, wonderful memories, wonderful American - God bless his family.

Rest in peace Mr. Shelby. My first car was a Shelby Cobra, and I loved every moment I owned it. I am sorry I traded it in for another vehicle. If I ever get the chance to own another, I'll keep it until I die. May God bless your soul forever and ever.

I'm proud and humbled to say he and I share the same bloodline from the Shelby family who were great heroes of the Revolutionary War. Our shared great grandfather was Capt. Moses Shelby who was wounded twice in the pivotal battle of that war. Danny Cox Tustin, CA

Carroll made a difference in my life for sure.I have always loved his cars and his life style. I had the pleasure of meeting Carroll Shelby in Bruton Smiths suite in Las Vegas Motor Soeedway. He was a kind and gentle as one could imagine him to be. He and I spent a moment watiching the race on a large screen monitor and he turned to me and said... How do you like Joey Logano? I told him he is the future of Nascar and Carroll smiled and agreed.
He will be sorley missed worldwide. There will never be another man like Shelby..

God Bless... God Speed

Rest in peace, Mr. Shelby. My wonderful, 63-year-old husband was watching a race on T.V. when the news of Mr. Shely's death was announced. It isn't easy watching a 63-year-old man weep, but he admired Mr. Shelby so.
