What? I dont understand you guestion.


Hi. I was saying that I noticed there were lots of American made cars in the pictures you posted and was wondering if they are new imports or if they were originally sold in your country.
Alright. Almost all American cars here are new production, ie imported to Finland after 1985. Before that, Todi came here with little American cars, due to the fact that the Russians regulated the sale of usa cars

Wow. Years to build, months to sell? Seems like you enjoy building them more than the actual finished product.

To each their own.

It was an amazing build.
Thank you! I have to give up many other things now. Of course, I wouldn't want to sell this

Were you intending all along to sell this vehicle once it was done? If so, why on earth did you do the paint and interior in such a, ummm, interesting style?
Not everyone’s car-building style pleases, especially proponents of the original style. The car was built in the old-time Kustom style, in an era when a lot of metal flake was used. The benches are old school tuck and roll style. I just received an award for the best interior design / upholstery from the largest car show in the Nordic countries, out of more than 500 cars. Best interior

This thing is out there and crazy, but so expertly done and detailed that it really grows on you. It really strikes me as true to the late 60s Autorama style - I think it would have fit in just fine back then!
Thanks!!
