A legend indeed - a Mustang loving friend of mine with the last name Carroll named his son Shelby. RIP, sir.

Wow.

One of the greatest contributors to American race/muscle cars.

Another American icon and legend gone. He was a man of no airs, in spite of what he had accomplished. I lived near him in Playa Del Rey, Calif. He could have driven anything, but chose a huge Ford station wagon with fake wood siding. He earlier had built his wife a Cobra with auto trans. Dunno how many of those got built, suspect very few. What a collectors item that would be.

RIP

I owned two Shelby Chargers - the second one was the turbo version. A lot of performance for a 2.2 litre engine - fun to drive.

Rest in Peace, Carroll Shelby.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

he fathered the Cobra, an Anglo-American hot rod of crude conception

Crude? That's a compliment. That's what hot rod means.

When I was a kid my parents owned one of the 350’s. Came stock with a rollbar and a fire extinguisher. Cosby did a bit about driving a Shelby Cobra that still makes me laugh to this day!

I’ll have to go out to the garage and hug my Mustang. Gotta tell him his daddy died.

RIP Mr. Shelby.

RIP - Mr. Shelby

I am the proud owner of a 2008 Shelby GT500 and would give my left nut for a 662hp 2013 Shelby GT500.

The White House just released a statement:

"Michelle and I note with great sadness the passing of American sportcar legend Caroll Shelby, a remarkable woman who in the 1960s broke through the wall of corporate sexism against women automotive engineers and who became an inspiration to all."
