I was just asked "Who exactly is Carroll Shelby"

Recommended Posts

One of my 30 something millennial co-workers saw my Shelby in the parking lot this and walked into work with that question.... I told him he was a Chicken Farmer! :hysterical:

I debated getting CHKN FMR as my vanity plate on the GT500. My wife said no one would understand it. I told her only true Shelby fans would figure it out.

 

Maybe I'll put it on my next Shelby.

Did you follow up with a serious answer? You may have had the opportunity to educate someone that has a genuine interest in the cars. We need all the new buyers we can get!

yes I did... a quick overview from the AC days to present day. I even forwarded a Wikipedia link! :victory:

 

 

EDIT after he read the link he said "Oh he recently died" and "it doesn't say anything about him being a chicken farmer..... oh yes it does, sorry I missed it" :hysterical:

Love it, and original..doubt anyone else has it, and you're right, "we'd" all know what it meant

Was at a car show with my 08KR, and this guy with his "posse" walks by, and says to his crew, "KR, that's the Knight Rider Edition" . I was about to take him to school, and thought...I don't have the energy for these snowflakes today...lol

I had the SGT out last week....parked in sight of the front windows at KINKOS. I was having some pics printed and a few other odds and ends scanned and emailed.

 

The guy behind the counter helping me, may have been 30(?) ....I’m horrible with judging age today.

 

Anyway, I was having an 8”x10” glossy printed of my Saleen Gurney, to frame for the orig owner of the car as a Xmas gift, and he asked what that car was. He knew it was a Mustang, but admittedly had no idea what it was. I told him it was a 2008 Saleen Dan Gurney tribute car.... 1 of only 38 made. He looked like a deer in headlights at me, but said, “cool”. Then he asked if I was a Mustang guy. I told him yes, I have four of them. Then I pointed outside at the SGT and told him that one was mine too. His response ...... “NICE, a Shelby GT!” I was shocked. He recognized the car from 100 yards away.

 

You just never know. I can drive the car for days and never get as much as a second look in traffic, and on other days have three people gimme :thumbsup:

 

:cool:
