Caroll Shelby, father of the legendary Shelby Cobra and an all around great guy, died in Dallas, TX  Thursday evening at age the are of 89.  Mr. Shelby had been battling pneumonia.

This was a man who embraced life as a “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” affair.  But really, with the cars that sprang to life under his guidance, you have to know the man put in some serious effort.

I was lucky enough to meet the man years ago.  In my brief time with him he was as gracious as a man can be.  Our condolences to his family and those who worked with him.
