Dickie Green (2nd from left) and Bill James attend to DB3S/3 that Carroll Shelby & Paul Fere would drive.
Trivia Question: In 1954 while in England, when not racing, what car did Carroll Shelby drive around?
Above: LeMans 1954, Carroll Shelby drills the sand bank in the DB3S. not once but twice.
Later LH/Rear stub axle failed due to this. and would have to dig it out. Note the skid marks. This is at Mulsanne.
May 11th, 2012; Carroll passed away after a lengthy illness at 89 years. God Speed Carroll!
June 2012; Some silly magazine, claiming to be the "Authority" (LOL!) said the above Aston was a "DBR3"...
(as Bugs Bunny use to say, "What a Maroon!" )
Above: Dickie is hard at work overhauling a rear axle.
