    How many of you drive LHD Cobras ?

    Hi all,

    I introduced myself in the Newbies section (I would appreciate if you responded with a hi there ), so probably you'll see more of my questions floating around soon.

    I'm curious how many of you drive LHD Cobras?

    Does it affect insurance price (I know I should have asked it in the insurance thread )

    The reason I'm asking is because I'm considering buying from the US, also I will drive in Europe too.

    Is it a problem driving LHD in the UK ? (driving wise, not from the legal point of view)

    LHD in the UK is very easy, you hardly notice it after a while. RHD in Europe much the same.

    The LHD thing is why I sold my 65 Mustang.
    Got fed up of the wife complaining that she didn't like being on the wrong side.
    I've been driving LHD drive cars in the UK on and off since I was 17.

    Driving LHD cars for me is no problem. The only snag, and it’s a very minor one is you have to be extra vigilant when overtaking on single carriageways. Especially if it’s a lorry or a van. You just can’t see what’s coming.
    My brother has a series 2 e-type LHD and neither of us have problems with that.
    Insurance wise, there could be a small increase in the premium. Your main worry though if buying a replica from the states is getting it legal over here. You may need to carry out a few modifications.
