Default In Remembrance of Carroll Shelby

Freck's Auto Art would like to say goodbye to racing great Carroll Shelby with a few words :


Carroll Hall Shelby (January 11, 1923- May 10, 2012)

What more can you say than Shelby was a racing legend and an American icon as an automobile designer. He was known for the Shelby American Cobra and the Ford Mustang Cobras. In 1959 with teammate Roy Salvadori, Shelby won the 24 Hours of Le Mans driving for Aston Martin. The Cobra inspired the song "Hey Little Cobra" by The Rip Chords, a classic song that will never die.



Freck's Auto Art is extremely sad about losing a business compatriot like Carroll. Mr. Shelby autographed our tribute print to him titled "Shelby Revs It Up." Freck's Auto Art was directly involved with the signing through the good people at the Carroll Shelby Foundation. Shelby, the man and the legend, will be missed and mourned by millions worldwide. The folks at Sports Car Digest wrote a wonderful and comprehensive tribute to Mr. Shelby as well if anyone is interested.
