The Swedes love their Yank tanks, I was at the Power meet in Vasteras a few years back, a huge show.

Spotted in Killarney a couple of days ago:





Came across this Ford graveyard near Kilgarvan over the weekend too, about 6 or 7 Sierras and a mark 1 Capri. Pity.

Good God no ..... Aer Lingus to Stockholm, rent a new Merc E Class and drive to Vesteras or go by train! I do it once a month and usually go back to Arlanda by train cuz I might have had one too many!!

CI have either J123456 (Jersey) or 12345 (Guernesy) It's a 280E (judging by rear bumper), Jap spec ( front repeaters ) so it possibly a Jap import (tho' the Japs usually liked their Mercs in LHD ) but with an Irish font / plate version of a Jap registration

A glance at the 'tax disc' might have resolved the question

Spotted in The Algarve (Portugal) a few days ago. Mint, 1990 reg, appears to be in everyday use.

They dont have steep road tax system like ours so many older bigger cars still in circulation. The dry climate helps too of course!
(Having said that, it cost us €70 in tolls to do 3.5 hour round trip. Makes Dublin-to-Galway tolls seem like a bargain in comparison!)
