I am a car guy. Always have been. On May 10th the world lost one of the greatest car guys ever: Carroll Shelby. Carroll Shelby wasn’t an engineer, never went to college, and, if he’d had it his way, likely would have made a living racing high-performance cars instead of designing and building them. But his simple philosophy on how to build a fast car influenced many designers: “Put a big, powerful engine in a little car,” he once told Popular Mechanics. “That’s where you start.” This is sad news. Rest in peace man.
