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.

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.
