Spin And WinNo, we are not talking about Danny Sullivan's 1985 Indy 500 victory. Recently the long-running and popular game show "Wheel Of Fortune" awarded its biggest prize-a Shelby American Series 1 super car. Derek Rose, a real estate entrepreneur from, of all places, Las Vegas was the lucky winner. Here Rose is pictured picking up his prize with none other than Carroll Shelby at the Shelby American manufacturing and assembly plant near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Series 1 is motivated by a modified Olds Aurora V8 and is a limited edition (500 units) proposition being marketed through a select group of Shelby American dealers.
