An American Muscle/Sportscar Legend, Carrol Shelby Created the Muscle Car known as "The Shelby Cobras". Starting with the "AC Cobra" aka "Shelby Cobras"or just plain "Shelby". By taking AC Motors racing cars and americanizing them with Ford Engines.

He was also instrumental in bringing the Mustang base Shelby GT series of cars, and the oh ho ho ho ho(my best Tim Allen) "427 Shelby Cobra". Shelby had his hands in with Ford until the very end, being the technical advisor to Ford since 2003 when they mended old issues, and built a new relationship.

He will be missed by the whole racing /muscle car world.

He went into making cars after a heart condition ended his racing career. Besides his well known projects he also has the "Shelby" motor company (I really like the series 1 in convertible) and he worked with Chrysler during the 80's to 90's and helped design the Dodge Viper.
