Siri: How Do You Handle a Snake?
If you’re gonna be worth your weight in salt; then you’re gonna screw up along the way sometimes. That’s the reality. Whether it’s athletics, a career, a hobby… anything. No one earns their stripes in life without any hard lessons learned. There’s gonna be carnage. And there are going to be tests of resilience.
And the people who get most vocal about your failures… are usually the ones talking from the sidelines. A special car like a Shelby, was/is a TOOL created to do 1 thing. Compete. It’s NOT a car designed for the timid or cautious. And ‘resale value’ or ‘rarity’ is NOT what motivated Carroll Shelby. Winning is what motivated him.
No one earns their stripes in life without any hard lessons learned.
And that’s what gave these cars such an iconic & legendary status in automotive history. So when you buy one of these to be a garage ornament, show-piece, or a financial investment… you are contradicting & insulting the VERY reasons it was created. And you suck.
You may think Jonathan Robertson ‘screwed up’ when he went crossed the limit, went off course, and hit the tires. But he didn’t. He broke chains. Set himself free. And he earned a seat at Carroll Shelby’s table – know that.
