Carroll Shelby Dies at age 89.

http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/n...,7384989.story

Carroll Shelby, the charismatic Texan who parlayed a short-lived racing career into a specialized business building high-performance, street-legal cars, died Thursday. He was 89.

Shelby died at Baylor Hospital in Dallas, according to an announcement by his company, Carroll Shelby Licensing. A cause was not disclosed.

He led a colorful, outsized life that touched virtually every corner of the automotive world, said Leslie Kendall, curator of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

Turned over the Daytona for the first time in a month, as a tribute to Carroll. She cranked right over started instantly and purred like an angry kitty. She feels it too. RIP Mr. Shelby, your Turbo Dodges haven't forgotten you, and neither will we.

no doubt. The turbo dodges were always a bastard child in Shelby's catalog, but they were pretty sweet cars. Can you imagine a Shelby Challenger?

Most people thought mine was a Mustang because of the Shelby name, and then their jaw would drop when they got beat by a little 2.2 Turbo Dodge. Someday I'd like to get a '89 CSX-VNT or another GLHS. I sure he would of done some big things to the Challenger like they did to the GT-500 Mustang
