Happy birthday in heaven your memories are forever saved in our hearts.
Thank you

Second that. Good picture.
"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"

Happy Birthday to Carroll Shelby. I wasn't aware our birth dates are so close.

I'm very glad that one important night, back in April 1922, Mrs Eloise Shelby didn't say "not tonight, I have headache" to the ol' postmaster.

If she had said that, none of us would have had nearly as much fun in our automotive lives as we have.

My eternal thanks to Mrs Shelby, and Happy Birthday to Shel!

Happy Birthday indeed.
Check the 3-Dog Tour thread in Lehigh Valley section, we had a great time celebrating Ol' Shel's birthday (and others).
Cobras, GT350s, Trans Am car, and even a Tiger now included among the other historic cars and race cars.

I wish I'd known. I would have dead headed to KPHL instead of returning to KDFW.
