We love u.s cars here in England and over the years we've sneaked a good number over ! Whenever and wherever a car show is held you'll always be guaranteed to see a few stateside cars, what do you guys think of the pics? Are they desirable, undesirable, worth good money or worth little money? Share your thoughts :)

Finally a very rare Olds, one of three made in the factory at the time for three English clients!

Wow, what a car! And great to see in such perfect condition too :) I bet it rides really nice and glides along smooth and quiet, American cars of this time were something very special and built to last a lifetime :)

My family car when I was growing up was a 1967 Dodge Monaco, like the one above, but in gold color. It was enormous. I can't imagine how it fits in the UK. I have plenty of good memories of that car... long road trips and cruising around town.

There are these little chrome guards on the front fenders that have small light bulbs inside them that blink with the turn signals so the driver could see the turn signals were active. They were very neat and somehow always worked even after 15 years.

We also had the Polara which was virtually the same car but with a lower trim level. They were used as police cars in the U.S., usually in the southwest where highways were long and deserted. 1968 models can be seen in Vanishing Point chasing the Challenger.
