It is worth a chat with your local dealer which I think is Arnold Clark in Inverness.

I often consider purchasing a classic car - for me that would be a mid 70's American muscle - for the sheer simplicity of the mechanics and the tax advantages (but not for the fuel savings :lol: ).

To work (again) on a motor that didn't have all the electronic and emissions cr@p bolted on would be a revelation!

I'm always Youtubing Chevy Small Block and, recently, the 250cu.in. (4.1 litre) straight six they did. You can rebuild them using two spanners (double-ended), 1/2" and 9/16" plus a 5/8" and 3/4" - absolute doddle!

Hi,

I used to fancy owning an American pickup k_e, you know the type I mean the one seen in most American movies. The one thing which would put me off is the left hand drive; I doubt I would drive it a day around here without writing it off given the traffic volume; poking the pickup out into oncoming traffic from behind a bus or other obstruction whilst overtaking would prove to be a nightmare? Over 40 years ago a guy arrived at my parents home looking for me; his son had a Honda 175cc in need of repair and he had been pointed my way; I said no problem bring the bike over and I'll sort it; he said it's already here in the back of the car; when I went to the car it was a huge American car; a Pontiac Parisienne and sure enough the bike was in the boot.

Kind regards, Col.
