On a recent trip to the USA with my wife for a vacation, I was lucky enough to see many amazing motor cars. It seems that America has a great number of enthusiasts and an affordability of sports cars for the masses.
Some cars that are simply out of reach financially for Australians, are common in America.
Obviously the American built muscle cars are a dime a dozen and many of them are also rental cars for tourists.
The Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang and the Corvette are some of these cars.
But one car stands alone to me, and seemed rare in the USA as well. That is the AC Cobra.
It doesn’t matter how many super cars I see, and modern sports cars, there is nothing like the curves, the simplicity and the horsepower of a Cobra. Those leg pipes that emit the beautiful rumble of the V8 motor…..I get excited just thinking about it. Haha
You can have all the drive settings in a modern car, automated transmissions with paddle controls, and rocket ship like capabilities……put me in a Manual AC Cobra anyday and I will be the happiest man alive.
One day my dream will come true, and a AC Cobra will be in the Sydney Coupes and Roadsters garage, I’d even settle for a replica….until then I will keep dreaming and admiring them as they pass.
