Re: RIP Carroll Shelby

Carroll Shelby lived an amazing life- he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, he became America's most famous car guy, he was the world's longest-lived heart transplant recipient, he raised and gave millions of dollars for children's charities, he ran an animal preserve in Africa, and he invented the chili cook-off.

The checkered flag has waved, Carroll. Good job!

Everyone seems to keep leaving out the fact that he was a veteran and served our country in WWII. I respect him as much for that as I do for his contributions to the automotive community.

Re: RIP Carroll Shelby

You are absolutely correct! Carroll Shelby was a test pilot and a flight instructor during World War II.

I stole this from an article online-

"The race is run, the flag unfurled, the champion now will rest. God speed, Carroll Shelby, we will never forget..."

He was as much an American hero as Neil Armstrong. His name commands respect across this planet and he will live on in all of us. His life touched us all and we will never forget the man and the legend Carroll Shelby.

God bless Carol Shelby. He helped produce the largest following of a single model if car in the world. His efforts have instilled his spirit and presence in every mustang past and future. Prayers go out to the family and he will forever be missed.

He was a truly great man not many people you can say that about today I wish I would have had the amazing honor to have met him or just seen him in person. He is a legend he will live forever he will be known by all generations as an amazing man that did many great things in his life.

You will be missed by all now take a victory lap up there for all of us. If the clouds smell like burning rubber we will know why
