Thank you sir for giving us cars that have *****, and inspiring the 3 main US car manufacturers to step up their game to your level of expectations.

Nothing to be sad about - long and well lived life as he wanted it to be - in the fast lane!

RIP

Carroll Shelby is no longer with us but he will always be remembered for his impact he had on cars to make them what they are today. The world has just lost a legend and he will be missed but may he rest in peace

Honestly brought a tear to my eye when I heard. He is one of my heroes, and will forever be in my memories. His legacy is indelible and innovations made the world a better place.

I am sure God will have Carroll build him something special!
