BBC News - US sports car designer Carroll Shelby dies aged 89
Another legend passes on.
Bloody nice car, the Cobra.
If thats a pic of her bum, I wish I had known her.
a true motorsport legend. RIP.
Buggers cars cost us our unrestricted motorways in 1964!
RIP to a true giant of the motorsport world, and the man who gave us the ultimate hairy chested sports car.
The Cobra, now that was a sportscar, you can keep your Vette's, Viper's, Jag's etc.
Made by AC in Thames Ditton.
I couldn't give a ****. I've never understood why it even makes the news when somebody who once did something of no real significance dies. At least he wasn't an actor, I suppose.
Thanks for sharing that.
The story goes that he'd take customers for a drive in the Cobra and to demonstrate the acceleration he'd place a $100 bill on the dashboard and say that the bill was theirs if they could grab it as he floored it. Apparently, no-one ever managed to grab the bill.
Fell in love with the Cobra the first time I saw 'The Gumball Rally' as a kid. One day... [sigh]
Not forgetting his work on Ford Mustangs AKA Eleanor in "Gone In 60 Seconds"
Shelby Mustang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
You're either a Nissan Micra driver, a cyclist, a botter, or all three if you don't care about Carroll Shelby
If he had spent as much time on suspension development as he did with the engine you might have been able to drive them around corners. and please don't quote from "bullitt".
On come now, he didn't create the E Type or DB5 did he. All he really did was shoehorn big engines into other peoples cars
Another Micra driver...
