I almost did this with an escort GT a couple of years ago. Got plowed by a strait truck right into the hatch. I thought it was a neat idea. The wife 'bout threw a hairy when she found out I wanted to keep it. It was the second time it had been totaled in 3 years. The last time I put it up on the roof.
Well, language is finnish and that car is result of Finlands car taxes..
Until few years ago we had 0% taxes for cargo cars (pick-ups, etc.) Compared to "normal" cars which are taxed about 90%-120%. So anyone could figure that buying Camaros or Mustangs is beyond avarage person in Finland. For example a new Camaro costs about $55000 in here Finland. And for more, income taxes are quite big also, if income is $35000, taxes are about 32-35%.
Even more funny is that you can not put "stiff" cover on top of trunk, it is viewed as if pickup suddenly becomes normal car, and car tax is then put in action,.. and more, you can't even drive that "new car" as it is treated as really new car. It has to fill all current regulations of new cars (airbags, etc)
And even more
After importing used car, you are not allowed to change more than 35% of car parts or else it is again treated as new car.. if you swap engine and tranny it is already 25%.. eh.
Wellcome to Finland
what the hell is that all about!?!.. and i thought afganistain, [or whatever country the US of A is at war with] ... where was I, ohh yes, And i thought that they had some pretty dumb laws.. in finland i don't think i would last three days, let alone 3 hours with all of those confusing laws
