Shelby American Las Vegas - Experiencing the Legend

"I'm not an engineer or a designer but I think I know what people like." - Carroll Shelby

I'm so inspired by the humility of a man who grew to be one of the biggest idols in car history. Prior to visiting the Shelby Heritage Center, I thought I knew who Carroll Shelby was. I thought I knew all about his story, and his empire. But now I see my knowledge was only scratching the surface of this amazing man, and his incredible story.
