Classic cars

    Recommended Posts

    Guest deborah

    I have previously had quite a few classic British sports cars.

    (see avatar)

     

    I am thinking of re-kindling this interest when we move to OZ.

     

    Are there many 50's-60's British sports cars over there?

     

    Or should I buy one over here and ship it out.

     

    I guess I will need to do this soon, so that I can have ownership of it for the minimum 6 months?

    There are quite a few classics here,lots of Aus and US stuff as well.

    As the weather is kinder ( and no salt on roads) they last long.

    Do you see many for sale?

     

    There are always a few for sale.

    Must admit I don't take too much notice.

     

    There are classic car clubs and lots of meets here (Show N'Shines)

     

    I'm sure you can tap into the network once here.

     

    I passed a lovely Frogeye Sprite the other day in BRG - funny looking things.

    I'm trying to get an idea of prices and if it would be better to buy an OZ car or import one from the UK?

    Have a look in www.tradingpost.com.au under south australia. If your car is old enough you will be able to take part in the annual Bay to Birdwood Rally. This is a car drive of past relics(LOL) that goes in convoy from Glenelg to Birdwood in the hills, ending at the Birdwood Mill which has a car museum.

    When was the last time you saw a Mini van in the UK?

    I've seen several over here.

    Also Mk1 and Mk2 escorts.
