Too true Jimmy!
Your thread gone a bit off piste, and to carry on lol my mate had an early 80s Vette and that couldn't pull ya hat off! Quite frankly it was embarrassing, had the rumble but no punch.
LHD/RHD is all the same to me - both have benefits/disadvantages in equal measures - I accept for some the balance is, er - more specific. TBH whilst spending much of my time driving either in London or circling it on the M25 I wouldn't want to be spending my time in A. a late model Challenger - B. current model Camaro - the latter has got to be like driving a letter or post box around - just a 'slot' over the top of the dashboard for forward view - and even smaller virtual 'gun slot' for rear vision (OK with a camera) and side windows you can't rest your elbow on unless you are 7 foot tall (then your head hits the roof)
Just out of interest would the insurance be less on a RHD in the UK?
Wouldnt of thought lh or rh would make any difference to indurance as most would be on classic policy,s
I have two lh converted to rh cars on the road and im not even sure if they asked what side the wheel was on
Mmm, that's a good point
Although, I think I get asked if it's an import during any insurance.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, had a one litre LHD Fiat Uno as a daily a few years ago. Great fun. Useful for when you had to post a letter, or you saw somebody on the left side pavement you wanted to chat to. Plus also front seat passengers had great fun doing irrational things for the entertainment of other road users, who hadn't picked up that it was LHD.
my son and I were driving off a film set back to unit base in an International Harvester road sweeper....... with two steering wheels......... you should have seen the copper's face as he let us through the barriers to cross the main road (which was in service) and my lad and I pretended to turn each wheel in opposite directions... he took it well though
