Carroll Hall Shelby, the Texan who created the famous Shelby Cobra and uncounted other high-performance machines that turned the auto world on its ear, and made it a whole lot more fun for 50 years, died in Dallas Thursday night at age 89. He had been hospitalized for pneumonia.

A real loss...he was one man who made things interesting for Corvettes. As an independent and tough Texan, he brought great attention to sports and race cars! I loved the AC and had the privilege to drive one. RIP CARROLL!
