9781613253229: Carroll Shelby: A Collection of My Favorite Racing Photos

Art Evans was a sports car racer in the 1950s on the West Coast who raced against, and became close friends with, Carroll Shelby. Their intense competition on the track became a lifelong friendship off the track. He and Shelby collaborated on many business projects over the years, including books, marketing projects, projects for the Shelby Foundation, and so on. In his later years, Shelby loved the books about his cars and similar topics, but his eyesight was failing to the point where he had difficulty reading, and really preferred the books that were heavy with photos.

It was from that realization that Shelby and Evans decided to work on one last book together. They both combed through the Shelby archives and selected Shelby's favorite images from his racing career. That is almost the entirety of this book. It is packed with photos selected by Shelby himself, and the captions are quotes from Shelby's commentary on the action in the photo, as well as his memories.

Unfortunately, Carroll Shelby passed away before the book was fully completed, but Evans, following Shelby's instructions, carried this final project through to completion. Filled with images that have never been seen in print, as well as images not published since the 1950s and 1960s, this final work from Shelby is a personally curated collection by the legend himself. If you are a sports car racing fan, Ford fan, Shelby fan, or any combination of the three, this book is a perfect addition to your automotive library.

About the Author:

Art Evans began his automotive career as a sports car racer during the 1950s. He went on to run a public relations and advertising company representing automotive-related enterprises, serve as a director for the SCCA, publish Sports Car Journal magazine, produce and direct motion pictures, teach photography, and work as a cinematographer on commercials. He has also authored a number of books about motorsports, many covering his close friend Carroll Shelby.

Carroll Shelby needs no introduction to automotive and racing enthusiasts throughout the world. From successful and celebrated Sports Illustrated race car driver of the year, to 24 Hours of LeMans winner, to the developer of the AC Cobra, to the Shelby nameplate on some of the most desirable Mustangs ever built, to philanthropist with the Shelby Heart Foundation, he has no equal in automotive lore. Shelby passed in 2012 as this book was being created.

Review:

"The life and times of racing legend Carroll Shelby comes alive in vivid photos and story captions." (Victory Lane 2016-11-23)

"A fascinating look at both Shelby's life and racing in the '50s and '60s, this book will be a worthy addition to the library of any fan of 'Ol Shel." (Casey Annis Vintage Racecar 2016-11-29)

"Art Evans pays glorious tribute to Carroll Shelby with this book they worked on together." (Mark Wigginton Sports Car Market 2016-12-08)

"Fans of Shelby as well as of mid-century racing will find this book impossible to put down." (J. Daniel Beaudry Hemmings Muscle Machines 2017-04-28)

"No collection serious about auto history should be without this uniquely personal portrait of one man's involvement in and lasting impact upon the history of auto racing." (Diane Donovan Donovan's Literary Services 2017-09-19)
