I'm not sure, but maybe it is because this is a Free Country, with private property rights. So people are allowed to buy and sell stuff at will and do with it as they please.

I have questioned me before when i restored a 1939 Chevy Touring Pheaton, belived to be the last existing example of 15 build for Swiss army.
soon a amarican Collector asked me to sell.
was it right to sell a world wide unic example and specialy related to Switzerland history wise ? The answer is no !
Then i started to folow the rumors, that an other one is still existing of these 15 original cars, luckyley 2 years later i found it and sold it to that collector.
was This right ? yes because one would remain in Switzerland and one went back to the homeland of GM.
In case you would keep all L29 in the USA, prices would go down and everybody could afford one.all the Mercedes 300 Gullwings would go back to Germany. In the case of Jaguars, the british would drown in Jag's and you wouldn't be amused if all Ford's and Chevy's would returne and i'm quite sure that no US resident wants a EDSEL back ! <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

The more i know, the more i realize that i don't know enough.

I agree, these cars are enjoyed world wide, I know many do not like to admit it but it is and always will be, about the dollar. in every market in every country. (It is what makes the world go round)

If it's a true "national treasure," then I agree with oldbanger71 to some degree. However, if the nation itself is not involved with it, or doesn't take on the responsibility of trying to keep it, then we need to respect our freedoms and sell it to whoever/wherever we want.
Just because it's an American-built Cord, that doesn't make it a national treasure. A treasure, yes. A national treasure, no.
