Just about every car enthusiast will know of this name


Carroll Shelby, a Texas chicken farmer turned hot-rodder who went on to build innovative sports cars like the Cobra that challenged Europe’s longtime dominance of road racing as well as high-performance versions of production cars like the Ford Mustang, died on Thursday in Dallas. He was 89.

Soo, sad, it's still a dream of mine to own a Shelby Cobra...not going to happen unless I win the lotto I guess.

Shelby Cobra was the most mental sports car ever. Big block in a fibreglass pommy aports car. EPIC.
