Finally got my new toy on the road, now UK registered, (age related 1970 plate) it feels great to drive some classic American iron again, especially with a loud V8. Big thanks to Ron, (Blue Ovals) for supplying the car. It gets a great reaction from the folks over here, at least most people can recognise it, unlike the Ranchero !!!!!!!! There have been a few problems before arriving at this point, the shippers have either reversed polarity or used 24 volts when they tried to jump start the car off the RORO ship, this caused a need for a new battery, alternator and voltage regulator, not a great starting point to it's life in the UK. It also proceeded to dump the entire contents of the power sterering fluid reservoir all over my street, (but this was after a very enthusiastic Motorway test drive!). It was only a split rubber hose, so no big deal to fix. The car even drew the attention of the police who pulled me over, there was a slight problem in that the registration was so new it wasn't even appearing on the police computer!. He admitted he also wanted a much closer look anyway as he liked the car so much! Hope all the folks I used to talk to regularly are all in good health and spirits. Regards. Tony.
