    My 03 stang is stick shift and I have no problems shifting, thats because I'm ambi ambydec ambi s@i7!? I can use both hands... no seriously I had an elder brother who use to buy all sorts of American motors off returning servicemen who where stationed on Burtonwood airbase way back in late 60s/70s so jumping in and out of left and right hand drive cars became second nature, on our motorways it does have its benifits, as everyone hangs right to see passed the car in front, I just stay left to see up the inside ahaa. regards the cowl being sealed. considering what I paid for her, underneath and everywhere else shes like a 3 year old car, I've pulled the exhaust boxes of her today the only rot I've found, even nuts and bolts coming of clean, places were i've expected some rust like in my 68 fastback not a trace will get some better photos of under the hood and the like, I feel so proud and lucky to own this classey hauler (this weekends todo is waxoyling inside all panels before winter kicks in):)

    could'nt really say, as never got to see Tony's chero in the short time we worked together as he was having trans problems and we use to talk motors to while away the boring night/shifts......

    Yeah, psychological problems also, among other things. He lost a lot of weight during his last battle with Alzheimer's, though, so it looks like he will make it alright for the short term at least.
    We are all pulling for a full recovery just to keep his spirits up.

    So far everyone has been blown away, you dont see many cheros over here and I think there's only a handfull of 72s throughout the UK so should be good if we can get together at one of our big shows next year :)

    I usually have my Green '73 GT at Newark every July, Tatton park occasionally, and the odd Billing show...come say hi if you see it, if im not in the Ranchero, ill be in a yellow '73 Lincoln MK IV

    Regarding the light blue '70 chero Carl posted the pic of, spoke to this guy once at Newark a few years back, nice guy and a clean chero, sure i saw it up for sale a year or so ago, so not sure if he still has it.

    It does look great (over there, ha). Nope, I totally concur with your sentiment. Regardless of the year, it's nice to see a little evangelizing going round for our frankentrucks. Not a lotta love for them here.

    Thanks Dennis, had time to look right through her and glad to say not a speck of rust anywhere, so everything getting a good waxoyling before winter sets in, paint good for now but will re do same as at a later date, do you need the vin # to help with your documentation Graeme
