Carroll Shelby Passes Away

It's a sad day for many followers of the Shelby name and automobile. Carroll Shelby passes away at the age of 89. One of my life time goals was to meet Mr Shelby in real life and that we did back a few years ago in 2008. Through the years, I always thought he and I had a lot in common. Fast cars has always been his passion and so it is mine, too.

Read more about the story by Yahoo News, here: http://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoram...200041629.html

God bless his family during this time of sorrow. He will always be remembered by many and his mark will always live on through speed lovers like us. You only get to live once, enjoy your life and the people that mean the most to you.
