The late Legendary Carroll Shelby was a true American success story. With a passion for performance and an unquenchable desire to win, he embodied the ingenuity, tenacity, and grit needed to succeed in any endeavor.
Before his unfortunate passing in May, 2012, he said “I have been blessed with the opportunity to drive some of the world’s fastest cars on some of the world’s most famous tracks. I was not going to let something like macular degeneration slow me down.”
With prescription telescopic glasses for distance and near tasks, Mr. Shelby was able to drive, read and keep being the productive automaker everyone loved and respected. We are sorry to see him leave us.
