Hiya

I've been looking at various classic cars to buy for a long while and finally decided on a 1967 porsche.

Afterlooking around in the UK, I decided to check out the market in other countries and found that I could purchase a top condition Porsche rust free from the USA (california) much much cheaper than I could in the UK (especially with the favourable exchange rate at the moment).

Now obviously I'd have t get he car shipped back to the UK ? I know nothing about this.

How would I go about getting it shipped over?

What legalities do I have to be aware of?

Because its a really old car how will I be taxed?

Any advice, help info greatfully received!
Cheers

I've just started having a go at the 2nd Peugeot design contest where I've got to design a Retrofuturistic Peugeot.
I have to use the design of past Peugeot's (until 1970) as inspiration.

I haven't studied Peugeot very much before and I'm struggling with which Peugeot designs of the past REALLY stand out.
It's easy to do this with the Mini or the Ford T-Bird because it's easy to see what made them great - I can't see the point in designing something and nobody knowing what it is!

Which classic (pre-70's) Peugeot designs stand out to you lot??

Any help will be much appreciated!

Jamie

Just checked the used value of my car on a well known price guide (I won't name it though). Apparently it is now worth £400 more than the same guide had valued it at 3 months ago. How does that work considering my car is a Mondeo, not a Ferrari? I think this company simply thinks of a number, doubles it etc to get its prices! Read more

One of the most recent 'Ask HJ' questions was about running a 1971 MG on 'premium petrol' (link: classics.honestjohn.co.uk/askhj/answer/94659/shoul...l-).

My old '73 BGT was happy on super unleaded, but needed the ignition timing retarding slightly to stop it pinking (the engines were designed with the old 5-star 100-octane fuel in mind).... Read more

The lead substitute additive is potentially toxic to handle iirc.Not seen it on sale recently. What you say about recession is correct, but most people seem to get the hardened valve seats and new valves fitted when an engine is overhauled.

Ah the delicate sound of pinking, that takes me back.

Interesting, it still seems to be freely available online from Wynns, Castrol, Redex and other brands ...

To be fair, I believe the pinking on my old BGT was a worn vacuum advance on the distie. I fitted a Ford 'spark delay' valve (basically a vacuum restrictor) in the vac line and it stopped the pinking completely without affecting pick-up or throttle response at all.
