    RIP Mr Shelby.

    I got to meet him in Vegas at the SEMA show a few years ago.

    Really nice guy and a great car designer. He'll be missed.

    several... 65 Mustang, 29 Ford Model A V8 flatty, 59 Ford truck with a 390 Caddy, 71 Buick Electra were my normal rides... the Mustang was mine and was my everyday driver (A/C 289, 4spd, family owned it since new), the rest were family cars but I traded off frequently just for fun. I rode around on a 75 GT550 motorcycle as well, traded off with friends with new Hurricanes and such. Stole a ride or two on my girlfriends fathers new FJ1200 as well.

    Nah, he's totally telling the truth. By the time he was 21 he had two DeLoreans, a Bugatti, and a SR-71.
