    What kind of question is that!!!
    Carroll Shelby was one of the last Great Automotive Pioneers. Though he suffered defeats in his life, the things he overcame, becoming a Great Champion and Entrepreneur far outweigh any of negatives he ever experienced.
    We Ford people rightfully claim Carroll Shelby as our own. His relationship with Ford is the stuff of legends.
    I figure his fortune will only continue growing under the direction of his lovely wife Cleo Shelby, and other members of his fine family.
