    i prefer the US, for tax/cost of living reasons. i was born in NY, but England is great, and has great cars.

    I take it that it is you in the photo, you look very smart and very young, talking of age, is the insurance for the Scooby high over the US.

    I suppose we do get all of those, I take it that the US does not then. 1 year ago I sold a 1991 Mitsubishi GTO 3000 Twin Turbo, as shown in the picture.Click image for larger version.
