Quote from The Classic Car He Said He Was Afraid to Drive :
As I got to talking about all this with him and his fear of driving the car he explained to me that nowadays with kids doing text messaging, and not paying attention to their driving, or soccer moms with kids in the car using a cell phone, he just didn‘t want to risk driving it unless the conditions were absolutely perfect, and he felt he was on guard and alert that day. I completely understand where he’s coming from, and although he does have insurance, he admitted to me he can never replace the car, no matter what happened. It was his baby, and he had done much of the restoration personally.
The other day, I was at Starbucks and someone drove up with a classic car, it was a 59' Stingray, and it was immaculate in every regard. Not a week had gone by in the last two years where this gentleman had not gotten an offer from someone to buy his car. He does take it to shows quite often, and he`s won numerous prizes, as it truly is that pristine. It´s so nice in fact that even when the weather is absolutely perfect, he is afraid to drive it.
It seems unfortunate to have such a nice car and not be able to drive it after all that′s what cars are for. He said there was nothing like driving down a two‐lane highway with the top down just listening to the engine purr. I told him that I thought I saw that in a movie once or twice, and he laughed because he had at one time rented his car out to the movie studios, but he said he would never do it again because he was afraid it might get hurt.
