And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

I decided to put the Bra on the car and drive it today since ive not driven the car to work in a VERY long time. Of course on the way to work a truck about 200 yards in front of me pick up to .5 inch by 2 feet long metal rods and they come bouncing across the interstate right at me... thankfully the shoulder was huge and I got over and missed both... thats why right there I dont DD my car I just hope I make it home safe lol.

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

I like DDs in Bras.......and out of them......wha? I mean yeah I hate those also.I would use one if I were taking a long road trip.When I came back from Dallas and saw all the bugs on my car I was amazed at how many can really get on the car and where they can get splattered at.

I noticed a swirling scratch on the 05's flat black hood a couple weeks ago, had to have been done on purpose, looks like they may have even been standing on it. The wife is a high school teacher, I suspect a student. It was keyed before too... We just get the obvious fixed and live with the rest... Can't worry about it too much, or we wouldn't enjoy our cars...

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

Considering both our cars aren't garaged, they do pretty good. I understand when guys are scared to let their baby's get blemished but I have too much fun driving mine to shelter it from the world.

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

mine has nearly 60k on it, trust me I drive it as often as I will enjoy driving it. I just have no fun in driving it places and having to worry about it so now I can just drive it how and when I wish so it stays clean etc.

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

Your car looks great considering the mileage...

That doesn't sound right... Your car looks pristine, I would have never guessed the mileage...

Wow! I would be upset if they hit my Cobra! haha. I understand, though. I dodged a crate on I-95 on the way home from the 'Stang show.

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

Last time I drove the cobra to work I had a mirror fall off another car, bounce on the road and directly into my passenger door at 70 mph. Luckily it was just a little paint transfer and cleaned right up...but it definitely won't be going back anytime soon.

They also just dug all the asphalt off the interstate I take to work so it's rocks galore.

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

I dd my car because I have a hard time not driving it because since I bought it I find an excuse to drive it every chance I get. I don't think I have ever enjoyed driving a car as much as I enjoy driving my stang.

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

I'm glad that I don't have to daily drive my 'vette any more. I much prefer to be able to drive it when it's going to be nice, for recreational purposes. It is my road trip, interstate car. Much more comfortable, for long trecks, than the Civic.

Re: And people ask why I dont DD my Cobra....

Glad nothing happened to your car. I'm always looking around me for something as my Stang is my DD, but I bought it to drive, I would be happy with it sitting in my garage.
If some would happen I would hope I could fix it if not I'd get a new one. Two much fun to let it sit.

They're boring and generic, I'll give you that. I love my Honda, though. It's a rental car spec'd '01 Civic. It's an ugly goldish color. It's got a tape deck. But it's never averaged less than 30 mpg on a fill-up. It doesn't cost **** to insure (liability only). I can drive it to Wal Mart, park it as close as I want, and don't have to worry about somebody running a cart into it, or door dings. The dinky tires are cheap. And I expect it to go somewhere around 160,000 more miles before I retire it (it's got less than 40k on the clock). I love it.
