    Great video I’m always amazed at Shelby’s life. The man gave everything he did 100% or he didn’t do it.

    Jessi, I’ve watched a bunch of your videos and you do a really good job. You’ve got a great look and voice but what is up with the tribal tattoo?

    thats why when the cobra came out it burned the doors off of ferrari’s? and the same with the ford gt, honestly im really sick and tired of europeans downgrading everything that doesnt have to do with their country or europe in general, if it’s a great car it’s a great car simple as that, it doesn’t matter where it’s made.

    Then tell her that in another video that isn’t paying homage to an automotive icon. I’ll copy this, so I can paste it on a video of someone that has inspired you when they pass away.
