In yet another example of why we'll never be rich, some enterprising folks are selling autographed press kits, signed by Carroll Shelby at last week's intro of Ford's Shelby Cobra GT500 at the New York Auto Show, on eBay — one of which is going for nearly $200. We had decided to forgo the mob scene surrounding the frail but spry-looking Shelby and get back to the press room to post on the events, so our press kit is glaringly unsigned. Not that we'd stoop to this kind of free-market treachery, at least not after the "Counterfeit Fred Durst Underpants" incident. Lesson = learned.
