Photo of the Day: A Close Shave (1967)

Submitted by on April 19, 2014

cobracrash_zps9979ba9cOctober the 18th at Brands Hatch in 1967, and the #100 Cobra completely mounts the #139 Ginetta.

The story goes that the Cobra struck the Ginetta from the rear, mounting it for a not inconsiderable distance before unceremoniously sliding back off. We believe the roof of the Ginetta can be seen to the left of the shot.
