How the Shelby Got its Stripes
« on: January 05, 2021, 03:15:21 PM »
Why did the original Shelby GT 350 Mustang have two blue stripes & no back seat? Why was it titled as a Shelby & not a Ford?

Brock Yates explains it all. He should know. He was there at Shelby American at that time. In fact, he designed the body for the Cobra Daytona coupe.

It's a fun look at how things were done back then, and why they were "the good old days." If only sanctioning bodies were that reasonable today.

“You can search the world over for the finer things, but you won't find a match for the American road and the creatures that live on it.”

F1 doesn't need a budget cap, they need a personnel cap.

6 guys, at least one with a cowboy hat, on each team, no rules, and get at 'er.
