Interview with Don McCain, Vice President of Shelby Engines

I came across a great interview at the 2009 Musclecar and Corvette Nationals with Don McCain, Vice President of Shelby Engines. Don is also known as the Godfather of the Super Snake as he joined Carroll Shelby back in 1964 to help him set up Shelby dealers across the country to sell vehicles. The interview contains some great history with Shelby which Don goes into great detail about. He talks about all the companies he has worked for over the years including Dana Chevrolet, Cragar, Edelbrock and a Ford dealer. His latest job which he started in 2004 is Vice President at Shelby Engines where he leads the company on new engine endeavors. One of the new engines he talks about coming down the pipe is a 5.4-liter modular motor capable of 1100 horsepower. Check out the video above for a great history on Shelby and the early days.
