This "I don't want to talk about the accident..." is bullsh*t. As an example, I specifically installed a neutral safety switch on my car after reading about a Cobra "driving off by itself" after someone reached in to start the car, believing it to be in neutral, and it wasn't. I tend to do that myself sometimes during tuning sessions.
What we need is a Special Prosecutor to be appointed by the DOJ to investigate this Cobra crash.

Seriously, we all know what probably happened, the throttle linkage got stuck, driver error, auto trans malfunction (if it had an AT), unintended acceleration, floor mats got intertwined with the gas pedal, etc. They're fairly simple cars, so the number of ways this accident could have happened is extremely finite.

How do you guys think I got my Kirkham into my living room?
