Very sad. Not a helluva lot between you and other cars when driving a Cobra.

Even if they were in a "safer car", they were not wearing seatbelts and were probably thrown out of the car... which would have killed them anyways. Sad indeed..

Sorry, at 45 years old, you should know better. The only sympathy I have is for the other driver. Glad he made it.

It is possible the pickup kid would not have been injured at all if he had been smart enough to buckle up.

how can you NOT wear a seatbelt? Especially if you are going to haul ass.

** save ~10 lbs gain 1 hp ** EQ: Y=(190*X) / (1984-X) where Y is (HP) and X is (lbs)

Some people are not taught the respect of the machine, instead that cars are just social experiences. Luckily the vast majority of people can not afford to own airplanes.

But then again maybe the world would be a better place if more people had the oppurtunity to fly an airplane.
