    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.

    The AC Cobra could go from zero to 100 and back to zero in 13 seconds! It was once called "the most brutish muscle car ever" - and gas mpg was never discussed:)
