In part three of a four part series, James & Nolan discuss how Ford wanted to defeat Ferrari and enlisted the help of a man who had done it before, Carroll Shelby. This episode covers Carroll’s life before racing, his failed business ventures (yes, chicken farming) and the creation of Shelby American in Venice, CA. Through his creating the Ford GT40 to other legends like the Shelby Mustang, Carroll Shelby might be the coolest man to ever live. You can see Carroll Shelby played by Matt Damon in the new film, Ford v Ferrari. Do you think Matt Damon did him justice? Let us know in the comments.
