Wow. Has anybody ever done anything right in the history of the automotive industry except you? Never mind... don't answer that.It amazes me that people see value in the Shelby failures. He failed at everything he tried. Ford dropped him in 66 and built in house. He tried the Europe models and mexican and they flopped. But somehow he gets praise for his failures. Talk to Gale Halderman about what he did on the Mustang. Nothing either Ford or Holman & Moody. Same for the GT-40. He was like professional wrestling all fake. Shelby road everyones coat tails and how I do not know. Shelby was a fraud and nobody can show otherwise.
It's hard to think of someone as a failure when they're openly celebrated as they are. I mean, how many people have written articles, books, TV specials, and even movies about David of Carolina Mountain Mustangs? Seems to me that Carroll Shelby must've done at least something right.
It also completely boggles the mind how people get lambasted for pointing out imperfections with over-priced imperfect cars, but this kind of tripe gets a pass.
