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.
However, when I met him, I was sitting on the patio as he drove up, backed it in, and parked his car. The reason he backed in is that he was afraid to back out because there would be a slight chance that someone else was backing out at the same time might not see him. He took absolutely every possible precaution he could to make sure no dents or dings would hit his car. In fact, there was a shopping cart across the parking lot, and he went and took it back to the shopping cart holder just in case, interestingly enough, the wind was blowing the other direction anyhow.
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.
