Lesson to be learned here: Don't let your spouse drive your Shelby? ::)

I took those pictures in 1983 at a Shelby club autocross. The car is NOT 184, and it was repaired. The door and roof were replaced, the fender fixed.  The rest of the car had no damage.

Do you know how it got flipped?  Lost control? Throttle stuck? Hit gravel in a turn? Going to fast in a turn? Did it happen fast or was it a slow motion flip?

well rumor has it that.....
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

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Failed Guns n Roses video.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"
