The auto world lost a great Icon and innovator. His loss will create a void in the place he left surely. After his heart transplant he has survived a long time and created several state of the art designs in the interim. Goodbye Carrol and Godspeed, See ya at the track in heaven...

I salute the guy for creating the cobra. However, in his old age he became sue happy. He sued Factory Five twice and lost both times. It even backfired on him when the Supreme Court called his own 'continuation' cobra a replica.

Of course I'm biased because I have a Factory Five cobra roadster.

Aw man, this sucks! I really enjoyed his legacy and the Cobra was one of the coolest cars to ever be built. The Mustang mods were not half bad either.
