I've always had a soft spot for a mustang. If I ever get the op to get a '69 fastback machI though, I'll still get one.



You will be missed Mr Shelby~

I just saw that.... The definition of an Icon and probably one of the most influential individuals in american motorsports. Glad to say I had a chance to meet him and talk to him.

Speed channel replayed a 1 hour tribute tonight.

Pretty amazing life, for someone that was given 5 years to live, in 1960.

Hopefully, he got to drive one of the 1000hp Mustangs
he mentioned in that show, produced a year ago.

Godspeed Mr Shelby.
