Automotive legend Carroll Shelby died last month at age 89. Hall of Fame race car driver and designer of some of the 20th century's most iconic sports cars, Shelby remained active in automotive production until his death, the details of which were not made public. Shelby was one of the world's longest-living heart transplant recipients, having received a new heart in June 1990. He also had a kidney transplant in 1996.
Motor Trend magazine's "Wide Open Throttle" has produced a video tribute to Shelby. The seven-minute video combines photos and archival footage from Shelby's long and colorful career with an exclusive inside look at his personal auto collection, which is worth millions of dollars.
