The latest car purchase was a challenge.
After your 16 year old daughter’s car totaled in an accident caused by a driver who ran a red light, you found yourself scrambling for another vehicle. As you explained to the other driver’s insurance company, although you had months to prepare for the car purchase that you made when you added another driver to the family, you had no preparation for this accident. And while you are very glad that she was not injured, you were frustrated that you are not able to find another car at the same price.
This car search, although more necessary, is not nearly as fun as the ones you embark on when you are looking for another muscle car for your collection. The goal of the car for your daughter was to quickly and successfully get it out of the way so that you could get back to your hobby. A hobby that includes scouring the internet for custom roadsters, muscle cars, and, if you can find them, replica car kits.
How Many Cars Have You Owned in Your Lifetime?
If you are like many car enthusiasts, the list of the cars that you have owned in the past is both long and extensive. Finding the right Shelby kit car, for instance, can be a quest that takes time, money, and patience. These same car enthusiasts who pride themselves on the collections that they own, but are often frustrated with the more mundane tasks of finding a school car for their youngest drivers. No matter where you fall in the patience spectrum when it comes to finding family cars, if you are a sports or muscle car enthusiast you have probably heard about one of the most collectible cars, a Shelby AC Original:
- Although they weighed almost 500 pounds less than Chevrolet Corvette, Shelby’s original AC Cobras were designed to be Corvette-Beaters.
- On a British motorway in the year 1964, an AC Cobra Coupe famously reached 186 mph (299 km/h).
- With its weight down to 2,360 pounds compared to 2,620 pounds, the Lightweight version of the Cobra debuted at the 1990 Geneva Salon. In addition, the power was up to 370 hp at 5,750 rpm.
- Cobras are known for weighing much less, while racing cars or roadsters can weigh up to 3,400 pounds.
- There were only 538 1964 Mark II models built, so it can be difficult to find one for your collection.
Finding the right car, whether it is for the youngest driver in your house or for your roadster collection, can be either a challenge or a chore. With the best mindset, however, you can find exactly what you are looking for.
