Well, I spoke to the seller on the phone right now. The car is infact a 1970. No much rust other than corroded paint. Enging doesn't run, prehaps fuelpump failure, but it turns! There's no rearseat. Owner will check out if it's a 1200 or 1600 ccm engine.

The car is located close to ÅLESUND, 372 km north of BERGEN.

Price: from NOK 3000,- = £ 240

I'm not going to buy it, anyone else: feel free to contact me.

Down the middle is normal for Wales, or at least my driving experiences of Wales.


Do you think I could convince work to let me go on the next trip to Norway? We're doing work over there I'm sure no one would notice if I put a trailor on the back of the van. :lol:
Three cars, two fire engines, one steam roller, a wheelchair, and various sized hammers.... what could go wrong?!

I will stick me thumb out, so you can offer me a lift. I visited Oslo in 1991 was a fanstatic place if only a little expensive. 8)

I do know that some Viva owners are planning a trip next year some time. Would be nice to meet our brothers and sisters abroad (so to speak). :D

PS Clara they will notice a trailer, when the door of the ship closes, it will be poking out the back !
