RIP to one true legend! and yes Adrian, there should be a Shelby tribute event. even include the newer Mustang GT500, as it is tagged as a Shelby

No <3

I think a special race is needed indeed. I vote Le Mans

Well, at least he won't be forgotten. He has affected the motor industry is all ways imaginable. He made, in my opinion, some of the greatest cars ever conceived.
