Valentine’s Day Shelby Anecdote
« on: February 14, 2019, 01:04:26 PM »
First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone.  Remember to keep your significant other happy this time of year so they won’t complain when you drag home your next Shelby/Mustang purchase.  My wife was sweet enough to surprise me with some gifts from the Shelby Gift Shop at Shelby American.

I just wanted to relate this story.  This morning as we exchanged a couple simple gifts, I opened up a set of Shelby socks (just what everyone truly needs).  My wife finally got a good look at them and started to read them aloud, “Ferris’s Ass is Mine.”

I just had a mental image of Carroll Shelby hitting on Mathew Broderick, and it wasn’t pretty.  Of course this lead to a full lecture by mean as to the history behind Shelby American beating Ferrari for all the world to see, but by that point she couldn’t care less.  Happy Valentines Day!
Thanks,

thanks for sharing and enjoy those kool socks
These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby

Love the socks and the mental picture. Made me laugh commenting about dropping my wallet in San Francisco and having to kick it all the way to Oakland before bent over to pick it up. That was great! LMAO!!!
