Carroll Shelby Sues Shelby Owners Club

Carroll Shelby is suing the Shelby American Automobile Club in an attempt to force it to stop using his name and likeness. The for-profit club is required to involve Shelby in marketing campaigns and provide him with financial statements under the terms of their licensing agreement. Shelby claims they've failed to do so. Shelby is also demanding that the club turn over its records of Shelby vehicles and their authenticity, something the club claims it'll refuse to do even if they lose the lawsuit. Shelby claims the club has made large some of money, but "never counted me in on anything." The club refutes this claim, stating it "pays for itself. There is no money left over. We have put a lot of hard work into this club." [Source: Automotive News]
