Lingering American snobbery?
Recently you’ve touched on American cars superbly – Chrysler Ghia L6.4, Murena GT and that AMC enthusiast’s vast collection – but such instances are infrequent. Why?
For example, when thinking about starter classics, how about a mid-sixties straight six Ford Mustang instead of a MGB GT? I have a few Yank tanks and judging by offers I receive, they’ve gone up at least 50 per cent over the past few years.
Mine are two-door V8 coupes, not much bigger than a modern 5 Series, can seat four-five and return more than 20mpg. Parts are cheap and easily found, and maintenance doesn’t need specialist help.
So please include more American metal, especially as they have contributed many pioneeering engineering firsts.
