auto News: carroll Shelby
As a young man, Carroll Shelby spent many of his early years dibbling and dabbling his way through life in order to find his true calling. He spent time as a chicken farmer, had military service as a test pilot, a tour operator, a race car driver/team owner, an automotive consultant, a designer, philanthropist and one of the earliest power-miesters on the scene for the revamp and power injection of the now infamous Ford Mustang Shelby Cobra. Carroll was also the father of many other hot cars and went from automobile company to automobile company leaving his mark throughout his career, including Aston Martin, Austin Healy, Ferrari, Dodge and of course Ford. Here are just some of the marks that Carroll Shelby left for us to drive, smile, drink a coke and enjoy.
