Carol Shelby passed the other day. As featured in the LA Times obits, he was the "inventor" of the American muscle car. A client of mine litigated against him and I took his deposition. When I called him Carol (and drew his ire) he not only told me what I could do, but how I could do it! We eventually substituted out of the case. I make note, because we are not minting a lot of such American originals these days.
