Quite a random selection there, some nice cars there, and some not so nice, and a few I've never seen before. Funny how a 5.7 litre has the same power as a 1.6 litre now, just shows how far engine tech and emission regs have advanced in the last few years.
The UK imports alot of cars from Japan as they drive on the same side as us. The Japanese pamper thier cars like no other nation, and only the best examples are shipped over. The only downside is the clocks read KM instead of MPH, and quite often they have automatic gearboxes too, which is a big downer if you're shipping over a classic like a Supra or similar.
The same side driving would be a definite plus I'm sure. I've never driven a rhd vehicle, not sure if I've ever been in one other than buses as a kid visiting London. For a few of the cars in the article I'd give it a try.
The only real issue with driving a RHD vehicle in a LHD country is overtaking. Driving a RHD or a LHD is equally easy as long as the rest of the vehicles are doing the same.
When I was driving in the US the only issue was remembering what door to go to. Many a day I opened the driver's door to find no steering wheel, so I'd stick my bag on the seat and go round the other side!
Oh yes, and the non-existant lane discipline on the freeway.
