This should be a sticky. A legend was lost today.

RIP old timer. There will never be another like yourself.

Of course not. Why make a sticky to honor one of the greatest legends in automobile history.

Dumb idea

Nope....

There is no sticky for John DeLorean
NO sticky for John Sawruk
NO sticky for Paul Zazzarine.

They were the Pontiac and GTO pioneers... Why a sticky on a Pontiac forum for a Ford guy but not GTO and Pontiac Guys? Dumb Idea?

No one disputes what Shelby meant... I don't think its a dumb idea NOT to sticky it.

Mr. Shelby was one of the greats...although a Ford guy...he still will be missed and has definately left his mark on the car industry! There will never be another one like him, that's for sure! RIP.

His unselfishness was evident at B.J. year in and year out... his legacy will live on there too.

Actually Judge, I think you are on to a great idea. How bout a thread for our lost industry "pioneers" with their names, dob,dod and a short list of thier accomplishments to preserve their memories for posterity. Hot rodders and car guys get some recognition in our hobby but few have the identity of Mr. Shelby. John DeLorean unfortunately let one thing tarnish his career and that is all (non-Pontiac) people will remember. I still remember the "Coke and a smile" poster with the Delorean car in the Alps .
