If you haven't heard already...here is one of the latest news outlets reporting on it.

Has anyone on here had the chance to meet Carroll Shelby?? He always seemed like a very cool guy to hang around and hear wild stories about cars, at least that was my impression from seeing him on tv. One day I hope to be able to buy a GT500.

Yes RIP.

Very sad!

Bummer.
I'd seen him at car shows years ago but never personally met him.

I saw that just a while ago on MSN. I just thought he'd always be around. But I knew better. The man just seemed so permanant. I'm sorry to see it finally happened. Goodbye Mr. Shelby.
