    Roy Salvadori, Mr. Shelby's co driver at LeMans when they won in '59 died June 3. RIP to both men.

    I recently saw a doco called The Cobra/Ferrari Wars that fell off the internet, worth a look if you're interested about Carroll's life leading into the mid-60s and his LeMans efforts.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    Just read that Roy Salvadori passed as well... both men lived to ripe old age.

    He and Shelby along with the #2 car were dominant in '59 at Le Mans, finishing 25 laps ahead the third place Ferrari.
