I bought a Mini Cooper without even thinking about it being a foreign car. It's a British car and oh so cute and tiny. It's my favorite car and I love it. However, I wish I would have realized it wasn't American-made.
If you buy a car that's made overseas, do yourself a favor and have a mechanic near you lined up for emergencies! Not all mechanics can fix, or fix properly, foreign cars. You need someone who specializes in not only foreign car repair, but repair for YOUR specific car. That would have saved me a world of trouble and a giant repair bill.
This would come in very handy.
Find yourself a great foreign car repair mechanic.
My father loves old cars. It was inevitable I would too. Every year we visit the Motor City Auto Show in Detroit, MI. This year is special as me and dad's favorite car, the 1968 Camaro is on display for the first time in five decades.
It wasn't more than 10 shorts years ago foreign cars were only a dream to the people of India. Luxury car brands were mostly seen in film and television commercials. Seeing one of these vehicles was unreal.
I once had a neighbor, Mr. Moore whose prized possession in life was his 1966 Mustang. Every morning at the crack of dawn he would walk to his driveway, uncover his vehicle and gaze in amazement. Soon after he would begin waxing his car.
