Not Chevrolet related, but an inspiration to many of us.

Another great automotive icon leaves this world.

Carol Shelby's influence is bigger than Ford/GM/Mopar. He helped define the car/hotrod world of the past five decades that we all enjoy. May he rest in peace.

...of course I have my '63 BelAir; Mustang GT ragtop too; had Dodge Challener, Pontiac GTO, Oldsmobile 442, etc, etc. If it's American has a V-8, makes noise and goes fast, I like it. I think Mr. Shelby felt the same way; he will be missed but will never be forgotten in the gearhead world...


Life's Journey is not to Arrive at the Grave Safely in a Well preserved Body, rather to skid in Sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Thank you God, What a Ride!"'
