Why This Web Page?

I am a long time owner of a ’68 GT350. During my research to restore my car, I learned about Carroll Shelby and Shelby American. The more I read the more I was impressed. I became a big fan and very knowledgable about the story.

Early in the process, we had an English photographer named Nicky Wright show up at a club meeting looking for some Mustangs to shoot for a book he was doing. We agreed and he drove a bunch of us crazy that summer shooting pictures of our cars. But my mother, Donna, and I adopted Nicky. He became family.

He was heading back to England to see his book publisher. Before he left I proposed that he and I do a book on Shelby’s cars. He told me to write the materials, he would sell the project and we’d shoot pictures when he returned. A couple months later I had the book written. But he didn’t get the publisher to buy in. They told him the niche was too small so the book wouldn’t sell.

Skip ahead, my Mother and I were talking one day and she suggested I take the written book I had and put it on a web page. The internet was pretty new at this time. I had all the text in a computer file. So I figured out how to make it a web page. I bought the domain name and put it on the internet. It was the first Shelby Cars web page.
