Smooth purchase

Dear Classic American,

Thanks for another interesting mag this month. I followed your request and contacted five MEPs for south-eastern UK with the letter from the Classic American website and received optimistic replies.

Smooth purchase

I have recently imported a beautiful 1976 Camaro from Ohio (bought on the Internet from the US and resulting in many sleepless nights!), spurred on by encouragement and advice I found within your magazine and from your advertisers. The whole event went surprisingly smoothly.

I looked online for ages and couldn’t see anything that hadn’t been mucked about with in this country, hence buying from the States. It seems odd to me as the Camaro seems to be the poor-little-sister in the UK; this country seems flooded with second gen Trans Ams. I much prefer the cleaner lines of the Chevrolet (without all the Pontiac’s spoilers and screaming chicken!).

I am now looking forward to sunny weekends when I can get her out and enjoy her – before coming here, it'd only seen rain once in 20 years. However, I have already had one cruise out – to the local ‘butty run’ – a friendly bunch with good mix of motors! (see:http://butty-run.com/)

What a beauty! There aren’t many super-clean mid-Seventies Camaros like this one in the UK and we hope to bring you an even better look at this stunner in an upcoming issue. - Ed
