Carroll Shelby: An Interview with the Snake is a fascinating interview-documentary that offers a look back at the life and times of Shelby – a man who is quite easily one of the most important American automotive personalities of the 20th century.

Today we look at any car that wears a Shelby badge with immediate understanding that it’s going to be a quick car – possibly dangerously so. But when he first started out he was a retired racing driver with a heart condition and only a moderate amount of name recognition. What Carroll had was a combination of engineering ability, salesmanship, imagination and American gumption – and he quickly became the worst nightmare of Enzo Ferrari.
