Carroll Shelby's Museum - Las Vegas
I visited Carroll Shelby's Auto Museum on Feb 10th, 2012 and put together this collage of photos for those who have not had the chance to see it.
In Memory Of Shelby (1923-2012): Mustang GT500 Shelby Cobra
I just got to know that Carroll Shelby passed away yesterday at the age of 89 and this news made me really sad: his Mustangs were my very first favourite cars and still are probably the source of my passion for cars in general.
It's darn near impossible to overemphasize the impact that Carroll Shelby has had on the automotive world as we know it today. Born in 1923, Carroll was a successful race car driver in the 1950s before creating his own racing team to take on the likes of Ferrari, using Ford-powered sportscar called the Cobra. Suffice it to say, Shelby and his Cobra were extremely successful. Later, Shelby's name would become synonymous with the fastest and most powerful Ford Mustang models ever created.
While he may no longer be alive, there can be little doubt that Carroll Shelby's influence will be felt by enthusiasts for as long as cars move us from one place to another.
Rest In Peace, Legend!
