Sad day - the automotive world has lost an amazing individual.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

My lotto fantasy always included a a 427 AC cobra or a 68 GT500. I work with a guy who knew him. Apparently, Shelby made a fortune in recent years selling little bundles of firewood to campgrounds, 7-11s, gas stations, general stores, etc.
