Someone else hit the mark with a comment about RHD. That will drastically reduce 
the number of willing buyers. It can be difficult to find a buyer for RHD 
vehicles in the US.

I have no problem with it, but over the years was forced to pass on several RHD 
cars I wanted. Great prices, beautiful cars, but, a bitchy wife who would go 
absolutely ballistic when I even suggested I was interested. No rhyme or reason, 
no logic to it, but I was confident my life would become a living hell if I were 
to proceed.

So, I shed the bitchy wife and buy what I please. I'm a big fan of divorce now.
