How come the BMWs are LHD? Are they from Japan?

You probably knew this, but there are plenty of LHD BMW's and Merc's in Japan.

It seems like the tradition in Japan is to sell vehicles that have the steering wheels on the same side as their country of origon. Lots of LHD BMWs, some USA domestic LHDs as well. I watch for classic American iron there and occasionally see some 1960s American muscle. Nothing with a 427 side oiler yet but close.

If you have to ask, you can't afford it ;p

It was kind the holy grail of Ford engines. Came in Shelby stuff from'63-67

Rarely, you can fine an "R" model Galaxy 500, or even Fairlane with one. Ford had to produce 50 or 500 depending on the year in order to race them.

thanks for the info.

But specifically the importers here are only bringing in 15 years or older imports. As that is the legal requirement for Canada.
