After approximately 20 minutes, I finally managed to pick up my jaw off the floor. I recall when Carroll Shelby initially had to suffer fools gladly as they say. He put up with a ton of scorn, ridicule and being laughed at at every turn. No one ever believed he would reach the world wide fame and success that he had achieved. Here is one of his quotes.

"I'm not going to take this defeatist attitude and listen to all this crap any more from all these people who have nothing except doomsday to predict." Well, as the saying goes, "He Showed 'em."

RIP Mr. Shelby and thanks for your contributions to the sport.

Thanks for a great photo, EM.
