Another factor worth considering is that US cars are really only designed with the US market in mind - lots of long wide straight roads, cheap petrol etc

When you take them out of that envirmonment and put them on say a typical UK road they obviously don't work as well.

Off topic a bit, but of interest what is the current fuel price in the UK?

This MGA has a huge V8 in it btw.
I've seen it in magazines over the years.

It's a beauty! :shock:

Another classy leftfield British suggestion - can be viewed in South Kensington.

Perhaps it may a little over budget this time, but with the amount of metalwork Jez is selling, he could just afford it...!

Melv, I believe you may be a fan of big Bristols too...??!!

Sure! ...but I would never buy a new one, because of no good value. Or better put: Older hold value waaay better.

Also like the Jensens posted several posts before, in particular the FF's as they have the 10cm longer nose 8) Would never consider buying an FF or Inceptor as daily driver though. I love their fastback designs. Love those in generally. My Saab has in fact also a fastback design and is a great bike carrier.

If it comes on 2d/4d I am a huge fan of the Pagode style coach. There is a beautifull Lancia Fulvia Coupe parked before my window now.
