Carrol Shelby Giving Props

I don't know if anyone else saw it, but i was watching Ride with Funk master flex and they were doin a big bit about shelby's cars and at the end of the segment he was throwin out props to the young people. He said he is really impressed with the young kids buying the 4 cylinders and saving money and making them fast themselves. Then he mentioned honda, toyota, and Specifically said the Ford Focus. Might just be me but i thought that was kinda cool.

Seemed heart felt, but maybe he can act. He also said that because of these tuner cars we're getting some really great mechanics. Who knows.

shelby's always liked fords...

in case anyone's been living under a rock and hasn't heard of the shelby cobra and the shelby mustang, and the new ford-produced cobra concept (that was featured on the first episode of "Rides" on TLC) i would think that he has a pretty good working relationship with ford.
