In reply to # 3736917 by stiffarm67 Assuming that there is equal value in your estimation, the Austin will subtract 20 years of cool from you. You'd go from sporting gent to old duffer in a hurry.smileys with beer

Joe, You couldn't be more wrong!
Your cool value will do nothing by rise.

Although not an Austin Princess, I do own an Austin London Taxi Cab circa 1967 for the last 21 years.
It is a hit at all sorts of gatherings and a lot of people think you own a "cool car, especially with the steering wheel on the wrong side.

Bruce,

Touché. I can appreciate a car like that but that doesn't mean I'd choose to own one cool smiley

Bruce - totally agree smiling smiley

Here in the Dallas area - someone runs a London Taxi as a limo service. See it go by often - driver in full chauffeur 's livery, peaked cap and all.
When it stops at a light, people are snapping pictures of it and waving. Never saw that happen here when an MGB-GT stops at a light. winking smiley

Other than the fact that I personally think it's Gawd awful...If your first thought was "don't"...DON'T.

"Value" and "Worth" though tossed around interchangeably are not the same.

I've passed on things "valued" at much more than the asking price because it's wasn't "worth" it to me on a personal level.



"One test is worth a thousand expert opinions"--Alvin "Tex" Johnston...Boeing test pilot.

73 MGB. Tires: Round, black, hold air. Oil: Sometimes old, sometimes new...always slippery. Oil filter: Yellow, usually full of oil. Carbs: 2 SU HIF. Distributor: Yes. Headlights: Not that bright but bright enough. A bunch of other stuff most cars have but not really important enough to itemize. Oh, wait...it has a cool sounding exhaust with stickers on the chrome tips. Really slays the ladies...
