That's assuming it's one of those good old metal-bodied monsters (i.e. 
- a Faraday cage).  I would imagine that a fiberglass Corvette would be 
a less than ideal place to take a lightning strike in ;-)

I read someplace that lightning strikes to plastic/fiberergalss/etc... 
airplanes is also more problematic than to the older metal jobs.
