I’m pretty sure today’s Theme Tuesday theme is a surprise to no one, Carroll Shelby’s impact on our culture is tremendous and to not have done a post touching on some of it would have been disrespectful of me.
I’m not going to attempt to summarize his 89 years of life and impact on the automotive culture in this post but rather post some of the many cars he had a hand in creating, influencing, or building.
If you want to read more about Caroll the NY times put out a pretty good article as did USA Today and of course there is always the Google monster.
If you want to read a completely insane story about the 4 million dollar Daytona Cobra coupe pictured below click the photo or here.
RIP Carroll Shelby.
