RIP Carroll Shelby

http://money.cnn.com/2012/05/11/auto....htm?hpt=hp_c2

Grass roots car maniac when he was young and did what most of us would want to do. Big engine small car.

Most of the recent stuff was watered down, but hey how hard do you want to work at 80+?

It was an honour to meet him at the TO autoshow in 2010. His health was very fragile even back then and you just kind of sensed that would be the last opportunity.

I'm inspired to read his book now.
