I'm comtemplating buying one of those huge old station cars,
for importing to Denmark , Europe. One of those where a family
of four, dogs and a load of luggage will fit, with room to spare.
It will be a year or so before we come visit you all overthere
in the great country. So i thought i'd start narroving down the
selection some, by getting som opinions; on which car i should
bring back as a souvenir ;-)
I know it will seem a bit silly to go looking for a car that old.
But there is a good reason: The car taxes are horrendous here
in Denmark. An imported car gets taxed with 180% of the
new car price + 25% sales tax!!! Only cars older than 35 years
are classed as collectors cars and they are much more reasonably
taxed. Registration fees and such are also much cheaper.
Gas prices are aching toward highway robbery: 5.8 $/gallon.
So cars that can be converted to diesel are interesting, especially
those where the GM V8 diesels fit. I know those diesels well
and have the tools for rebuilding and servicing them.
So, here goes with the silly questions:
What station car 35+ years old stationcars would you go looking for?
And why that one?
Anyone happen to know which of them can be converted
to diesel engines?
