The Real Carroll Shelby

Recommended Posts

Many of us think we know Carroll Shelby, appreciate where he came from, and understand what molded the man.


If you want to learn about the real Carroll Shelby, read "Go Like Hell - Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans." This book was introduced in another thread a few weeks ago.


Read all of it and you will know that Mr. Shelby is much, much more than the man who built the cars we drive today.


You will read that when Ford was trying to conquer Le Mans and not succeeding, it was decided that they could not win doing it "by committee." They needed to put it in the hands of one man. You know who that man was but you will fully appreciate the man and what happened at Le Mans in 1966 only when you read this story.
