Welcome to 2018 and another year of American muscle car mayhem – already I am looking forward to the start of the show season which will hopefully kick off with the annual; Good Friday Wheels Day event organised by the Surrey Street Rodders.
On the subject of shows, please remember the 25th Anniversary MoparEuroNats at Santa Pod raceway, July 27 to 29 – do mot miss it!
Over the Christmas period many american car owners have been re -valuing their cars so I have been quite busy. I’ve also been involved with the possible sale of a 1968 Charger R/T; a black painted 440ci column auto car that left the factory QQ1 Bright Blue Metallic, black interior and vinyl roof with a black bumble bee stripe.
This new year brings round several 50th anniversaries for the cars we love, such as the Mopar contingent of Charger, Super Bee, Road Runner and other GM muscle cars like the second-generation Oldsmobile 442 and Pontiac GTO, Ford came in with a re-design of the Fairlane and also introduced the sharp looking Torino. Not to be outdone, AMC launched the all new Javelin and the two-seater AMX, wow! What a year 1968 turned out to be.
My own cars have been safely tucked away till the Spring and their hibernation will cease and hopefully I will be behind the wheel again.
On a final note take on board the date May 20th 2018 that’s when the forty-year rule comes into play regarding the MOT. Yep, after that date our trusty cherished muscle cars will no longer require a Ministry test however please understand you must insure and tax the vehicle and the onus of road worthiness is firmly in your hands.
If you would like to find out the true value of your muscle car, drop me a line.
Keep driving them old cars,
