Great story and photo. For a car enthusiast it's a big joy to see someone preserving and using cars that are normally not considered classics... yet.Throughout car-history, it's been a common mistake that everybody wants to preserve the same few cars, forgetting about the rest because they're not considered "worthy"... with the consequence that some car models have vanished completely, crushed by the jaws of death, and now it's too late to bring them back.I wish car collectors in general would be more conscious of preserving all types of cars, not just a few select models. Car history is diverse and the preserved car pool needs to reflect that.
This one is my adventure car on UK plates, link to the original California plates is in the info too! Still have loads to upload on both plates!! My Car I'll message you later tonight when I get home about adventures and your plans, they are not far off what I have planned :)
I take many pictures and post the good stuff on instagram, I plan on updating the comments with what´s gone on the past few months as I travel around with this Octavia. I plan on doing a trip from vladivostok to Alaska via Europe and boat to New Jersey shipping the car back from the Alaska side.It´s the closest I could get to a round the world trip
Cannot recommend it enough. I´ve added over 200,000+ KM across Europe and other odd places combined on cars that I never paid more than 500€ for and most of the time I end up selling the cars in Estonia where they go on to live rather than being scrapped so it´s all good fun for me and the world.This MK1 Octavia, an MK3 Octavia (226BPX), Seat Alhambra (830BTH) and the 100 euro Ford Mondeo (318DBD) remain my four cars that I plan on keeping.
