Probably the most beautiful muscle car ever made, the GT350 and GT500 convertible in fire engine red or the Shelby blue were and still are some of the most beautiful cars collectors go after. I was able to drive one once and it was a dream, the power and feel were like nothing else I've ever driven. And it was a beautiful thing to just see parked. What a humble beautiful man. Thank you John for everything you did. Rest easy.

Fantastic story. What a neat guy. I would have liked to have met him, but his spirit will live on through his family and of course the venerable Shelby.
