    Great learning experience... Carroll was one of a kind, gives new meaning to look for the bright side... absolute survivor in everything he did. This is a great movie, I recommend it to all!!!!! Well done!

    Adam Corolla produced this as well as the 24 Hours of LeMans also on Netflix. Did y'all catch the part about what Shelby wanted to do with the remaining Daytona Coupes?

    Dump 'em in the ocean! Never heard that story before. Sounds like Ford really screwed him over.

    If you watched the two part series on Harley Davidson a couple years ago, you’ll see its not the first time Ford screwed over the little guy

    Kathy and I also watched it last Friday and were both impressed. Fortunately...those Daytona's were not dumped in the North Sea...as Shelby directed.

    I was not aware of how brilliant and instrumental Phil Remington was until the two movies came out.

    The problems we face today are there ... because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I have heard that Henry Ford II was a major A-hole, with a massive ego. More so than Shelby????
