    I was lucky enough to meet and talk to Mr. Shelby twice.The first time was at his shop in Las Vegas,NV where they still build the original AC Cobra's.He even let me set in one of his personal cars,and gave me a tour of the place after he learned I was friends with some guy's that he knows well.
    He was a wonderful person,and really gave back to the community.Even though he was a living legend,he was down to earth,and always went out of his way to talk to folks about his love of automobiles/racing/and life in general.

    Carroll Shelby will truly be missed by everyone that ever met or knew him!
