Tom Cotter was on a road trip in Alaska, touring around in his classic 1965 Shelby Cobra convertible. He stayed the night at a local ski resort near Anchorage and woke up to a heck of a surprise when he found his car torn open. The red convertible had a gaping hole in the roof and scratches all over its polished body, with muddy paw prints all over the interior. Turns out his buddy had left some Fig Newtons on the car seat, which is apparently one the bear’s favorite treats as he ripped the car open for the snack. The car is reportedly worth just under one-million dollars, and there are less than one-thousand in the world.
Cotter has a positive outlook on the whole thing since the damage wasn’t too bad, saying he’s just thankful he wasn’t in the car during the bear break-in. “My car has a unique story that no other Cobra has in the world,” he says.
