When someone thinks of Ford Motor Company, one of the first things that comes to mind is the Mustang. Carroll Shelby revolutionized the world of cars, especially with his work on the Ford Mustangs. Carroll was not only a racecar driver, but he also created racecars and street legal vehicles. He is a member of the Automotive Hall of Fame and the International Motor Sports Hall of Fame, just to name a few, and in 1956 and ’57 was named Driver of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Shelby died March 10, 2012 at the age of 89, and in this speech I hope that I can convince you that he is more than worthy of the prominent place he holds in the history of performance vehicles.

Here women scream, children scream but best of all the men scream in a high-pitched symphony of beautifully poised terror.

Back in 2012 my sister, Kampbell, decided that she had an interest in gymnastics. My parents, being the loving people they are to her, let her join Kids In Motion, a gymnastics facility in Washington, Missouri. She had a lot of fun with it and has actually got really good.

Many events occurred in Chapters 10-18 that greatly impacted the story.

Sarah, from a young age, was suspected of engaging in sexual relationships with men, which undermined her reputation in society. Both the Methodist Church and the mill owners were highly opposed to inappropriate behavior, as mill girls were required to maintain
