Flyingbadgers2001 Posted March 10, 2009 Report Share Posted March 10, 2009 Going through my external hard drive and found these pics from Oshkosh from 2005. My Squadron had a C-130H on static display there and we were park right next to the Ford venue with all the Ford and Ford owned company cars on display as well. I was approached by a PR guy from Ford who wanted to take some pics of our C-130H and two Roadsters together. I asked the A/C for the permission and he gave the green light for the impromptu photo shoot. About an hour later the two Roadsters show up at the back of the plane and along with them came Carroll Shelby and his wife Cleo! I did not even own a SGT back then. Heck, I don't think the SGT was familiar to me then? But I did get some good shots of Carroll on my plane. He signed our Oshkosh baseball caps for each one of the crew that was there. I wear it from time to time at gatherings. But that wouldn’t be the last time I would meet Carroll Shelby. I had an opportunity to meet and talk to him and Cleo for some time at the Ford V.I.P. tent at Air Venture in 2007. Back then I had my CS8. Anyways here are some pics from the photo shoot. Enjoy! -FB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
