    Thirty-five years after Carroll Shelby and Ford Motor Co. parted ways, Shelby, 80, is back in the fold and shepherding a new era of Shelby Cobras, the first of which will be revealed to the media tonight at the auto show.

    Tonight, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Shelby and Ford Chairman Bill Ford Jr. will unveil the new Cobra concept car to the world’s automotive media.

    But as impressive as the 600-horsepower, silver-and-gray Cobra is on stage, the real star will be the 80-year-old Shelby, the biggest name in American auto racing in the 1960s and a Ford icon for the ages.
