Out n about on this chilly weekend in England that building is the arch way to the Merevale Estate where King Richard the 3rd and his army stayed the night before the battle of Bosworth in 1485 ending the English civil war called, war of the Roses. The last monarch to die in battle.
His body was found a few years ago under a car park near Leicester. Some history for you 👍

That’s cool. Thanks for that picture of modern and old history. I love stuff like that. Gives me some thoughts of getting some pictures of my car at some American Revolution sites which I live near. Funny about the king dying in battle. Imagine Queen E swinging a sword in battle! At least her Grandsons have put themselves in harms way. I give them credit for that.

So looking at your car right hand drive is not required?

No it doesn't need to be right hand drive legally as long as the lights have been converted and complys to EU/UK law

Only downside is, if i want to overtake its hard to see lol

Front lights are okay. Except if you have xenon lights the car must have headlamp washers. Did not bother after initial test. It is the rear lights that are the issue. Must have amber turn signal not red. I had a nob fail my Lightning this year on its annual test as on the edge of the mirrors the turn signals are red. First time in 16 years of driving a Lightning I have ever had that problem. Guy was a dick.

No. If we left it as US. We would blind everyone as we drive on the otherside. So the lights need changing to point the other way. Aswell as fog lights and amber indicator on the side

Lord. What indicators do you have. They drilled holes in my door 😭😭😭

It’s amazing how governments spend most of their time trying to make their constituents miserable. Just confounding.

They call indicators turn signals here . I drive a right hand drive here in the States, it’s not the big deal people think.
Your Challenger must be a heap of fun over there .

The hair on my neck stood up when I thought about how shitty it would be passing while sitting on the other side of the car - no thanks.

Ever driven right hand side in Caribbean but with left side drive car. Rotaries (roundabouts to you brits) are terrifying going the other way. 😱

Same as you. Just under the Hellcat emblem. I smoked them out so they hardly notice. Another UK and EU law that states that indicators / turn signals must be visible from the side of the vehicle.

Driving left or right hand drive does not bother me the slightest. I own four left hand drive vehicles and three right hand drive vehicles. One of each are circuit race cars. You just have to remember which side of the car to get into or you can look a fool :)
