Preston Lerner’s new book ‘Shelby American’ has made its way into my line of sight

The mail brought a copy of my friend Preston Lerner’s new book, Shelby American: The Renegades Who Built the Cars, Won the Races, and Lived the Legend. I didn’t even pay anything!

Shelby’s persona always put me off. He seemed like a bully. My favorite figure of the 1960s was Jim Clark.

The Cobra roadsters were something else, though.

Because Preston wrote it, I want to read. He worked hard on it, and the literary quality is not going to be in question.

Matt Damon’s sympathetic portrayal of Shelby in Ford v Ferrari did contribute to my being disposed to learn more.

So watch for a report.
