    Well done Reg. The cars rude enough without the number plate. Get some wire wheels for it..........

    Thanks Vince, Ever cleaned wire wheels ? Got some fettling to do before i go charging about, Like the foot brake is on the floor, no leaks down the inside of the wheels ?, Has some new cylinders and pipes on it, So dunno yet, Sounds great when it fires up, stainless steel exhaust on it, Somebody has loved it, I'm going to write to the previous owner on the pink slip, But may be dead if they bought it new,

    Looks like a mini Bergerac ( both Reg and the car). Looks great. Hope you have many happy years in it!  Importing a car from the USA to the UK - Page 6 3318427985  Importing a car from the USA to the UK - Page 6 3318427985

    I think I will report that photo to Servimg.com - I find the hat offensive. I haven´t been following this thread but the car looks like an MG, can´t you get those in the UK?????

    Right plan C, Austin Healey deal done on tinternet, $$$$ Dollars to be sent Tuesday, So how long will this one take to land and will it land Importing a car from the USA to the UK - Page 6 2419626307 once i get a tracking number i will put it on here and stare at it while it go's to Japan Germany and anywhere but here Importing a car from the USA to the UK - Page 6 3913804730
    The site where the car was advertised gave away who's car it had been, so i cut them out of it and went to Terry at Toyshop restos,com, no point giving somebody 10% innit, he was happy enough because he didnt suffer,

      If i did have the time and needed a car there i would buy something sensible like Kevins Seat with no corners left on it  Transport
    Love to blast round the rock in the Healey but cant see me leaving a car like that outside Mercadona,
    Nice thought tho, wish i was that selfish
