Thanks for your reply. This is Larry Webster and I run Hagerty media. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I do not agree with your characterization: "it's another tale of a journo whose ambition exceeded his talent and he crashed someone else's car."
This piece is an exploration of a car's reputation, a way to tell the story of an interesting car with a fresh angle. Sam is more than qualified for the job with numerous racing licenses and decades of behind-the-wheel experience. I hope you enjoyed his fresh take on a car few know about.
My hope with our comments and community is to connect car people for lively discussion and informative exchanges rather than inflammatory potshots. The internet, as you know, can make that goal tricky so please help us all take the high road as we discuss our favorite hobby.
We're here to spread the car love and to make sure car passion exists for future generations. Your help is very much appreciated.
I’m sorry, but if you were going to test for “tippy reputation” then you should have mitigated the consequences. Anti tip training wheels could have been used, like the moose tests done to SUV’s. Damage could have possibly been avoided.
