A Toast, and a Blessing to Mr. Shelby:

May the road rise with with you,
The wind in your hair,
May your engine keep purring,
With nary a care!

Thank you, Mr. Shelby.
Godspeed.

I met the guy out at his Shellby store at the speedway in Las Vegas. People treated him like a god, but I got the feeling he was pretty down to earth.

If you are ever in Vegas it is worth a trip out there to Shelby. Lots of cars on display. Plus you can order your very own Mustang Shelby GT 500. chuckle

I met CS at a SEMA event in the early 90's. A nicer man, you'll never meet.

It's bad when a legend passes...It's worse when the person was a true gentleman.

Drive on Mr. Shelby, drive on!Tissue

He also is/was producing GT40's. Saw a special on it on the speed channel recently.

Regardless of what anyone think of Bill Cosby today, he did a funny as hell bit describing his first experience behind the wheel of a Cobra. RIP Mr. Shelby.

For those with the cash to burn, you can buy a GT 500 and have it converted into a 1,000 HP Shelby. His last wish was to see a 1,000 HP and he got his wish.

Thats sad... Candle

The ignorant man believes he knows everything.
The wise man knows just enough to realize he knows very little.
