I've had a few instances of unjustified road rage, myself. These cars seem to make some people really happy & Piss others off.

You got that right.
About a year ago I was filling up at a gas station. As I was exiting, a young homeless man was giving me the finger with a straight arm, following me as I pulled out of the apron, for absolutely no reason other than I was in a Cobra and he was homeless (at least I think that's why).

About the only close call that I've had was when I was stopped at a light and a car came up from behind me, the light still being red, tried to brake/slow down while simultaneously taking a pic of my car.

The whole distracted driving thing, specifically checking texts, emails and using the phone is an epidemic.

I haven't seen anyone that's gotten mad at my owning a Cobra yet.

Well, if I could conjugate a verb, gee whiz.

Well, I haven't "seen" anyone get mad. Of course, those that might want to get mad at me for owning Cobra may look at the uncontrollable anger in my facial expression when I'm out and about with my car and just simply stay away from me.

You've got that right - it's getting worse and now people are playing Pokémon Go and driving.

Just a couple weeks ago I was on a highway in my daily driver. A car in front of me got my attention because he was drifting out of lane and then correcting repeatedly. There were no cars in the left lane and a wide shoulder on the inside so I pulled up beside him. He was texting away on his phone, so I hit the horn. He looked up panicked - obviously scared the hell out of him. We made eye contact and he figured out it was me that beeped so he gave me the finger. I just stared and shook my head. Felt real good. Scaring distracted drivers could become my new hobby.
