In the pre-radio-in-car days, Shelby stood on a pit wall threatening to throw a hammer through the windshields of his racing team for racing against other team members instead of following his orders to out last Ferrari.

Yes, a True Racing Legend.

Not just american muscle, but I don't think cars would be where they are today without Shelby's influence. The man was a genius and way ahead of his time.

Unhappy A major loss to the automotive community today!

We've lost a true Legend in the automotive world! A great race car driver and an even better race car designer! Love the Shelby GT 500 KR and The Shelby Cobra!

Rest In Peace Mr. Shelby! Your legacy lives on!
