Carroll passed on a couple days ago at 89. I was fortuante enough to meet him a couple times. He kindly signed a shirt to me once. As he signed I leaned down and whispered in to his ear "thanks for the cars"....he lit up, turned to me and smiled, invited me to shake his hand and have my picture taken with him...golden moment for this Shelby fan. He brought us not only the Cobra but the GT 350 and 500, whipped Ferrari's ass, won Le Mans as a driver and owner.....he did it all.
