A very sad day indeed.
I met him at the SDAC convention in Michigan many years back.
Got to shake his hand and get my sun visor autographed.
The crowd mobbed him and he looked stunned but happy at all the love and attention.
I get home today and this is what I hear. What a sad day. Thanks for the great cars and the wonderful memories I've had with them. I don't give a damn if they're recognized or not I had a blast with them. R.I.P. buddy.
Sad irony that today is my first day here as a new member. But it just goes to show that Shelby's legacy will live on through his admiring fans. He leaves the motoring world a lot more bad-ass than when he came into it. Perhaps I'll do a burn out in his honor!
He isnt talked about much in dodges because he was with ford before us really. He was a guy who took production cars and generally made them fear able machines. Media has to do with it too. When most people hear shelby the first thing that comes to mind is Eleanor
