    One of his racers, Skip Slate, taught me more about driving than anyone in the world. Skip adored Carroll Shelby. There is no doubt the man was a racing and automotive legend.

    R.I.P.

    A buddy of mine had a chance to buy a Cobra mid 60's brandy new for five grand. Deal fell through over financing. Kicking himself for decades, car worth over half a mill now.
