If you’re ever lucky enough to get behind the wheel of a classic Shelby Cobra, be sure you know how to drive a stick shift. The owner of this car made a huge mistake in letting this lady take his car for a drive; and he paid the ultimate price.
That is a tough lesson to learn. Kit car or not, it is still a cringe-worthy event when you see one of these cars mistreated so visibly. If you’re going to drive a insanely powerful yet light car, you might consider taking a race car driving class first. And – unless you know the person real well and know their driving skill level -don’t loan out your car.
Here’s the takeaway: don’t let someone drive your classic car who you just met at the bar.
Hopefully the owner of this Cobra learned his lesson!
