Question Which side do you guys prefer?

OK guys, I know this is gonna sound stupid but I gotta ask.
Do most of you with cobras have the steering wheel on the right side and do any of you prefer or have it on the left?


Your Friend,
Hershal

Hi Hershal,

We prefer the steering wheel on the right side otherwise it's a bit of a stretch across to use it from the drivers seat.

Building a new left hand drive car is not an option over here since the ADRs (Australian Design Rules) are very strict about what you can put on the road.

Mclaren had the right idea with their sports car. Put the driver in the middle then you can register it anwhere.

Cheers

BT - as I understand the current law in Queensland, only vehicles over 30 years old are allowed to be used on the road while retaining the wheel on the left. I discussed a "hypothetical" with a friend in the Department of Transport a little while back, when I wanted to bring an ERA into the country. He basically said that any glass bodied Cobra is easily distinguished from an original, therefore regardless of any Titles Unlimited (or similar) title showing a 1965 vintage car, as far as the authorities are concerned it could not be registered for road use.

A Kirkham car on the other hand...
