Some nice cars in your list also. Over a hundred, wow. Most of mine were purchased when still plenty of them about. Its strange that i could probably no longer afford to purchase them now.
I purchased the Camaro direct from an American outlet in Germany that supplied their Armed Forces. Circa 1987, a cracking 5.7lt V8. Had it two years, imported it to the UK and sold it for £8k more than i paid for it when new. A good percentage of mine were left hooker ones purchased in Germany. I retired at 45 due to ill health. My changing cars so often had to slow down somewhat. Although i average about 18 months. Crazy i know, but i just get bored and hanker after a change.
Would have loved your Rover, never got around to getting one. A Cortina, not seen one of those in an age. Those were the days, points, distributor, HT leads,new plugs, and away you went.
