As The Sandman told me....

I'm posting some of the offroading we have in Spain. Lately the dam*** government is very restrictive with the 4x4's, so they're not allowed out of the road in some of the "states" (we don't call them that way).
I'll start with photos of my cars and some others i took near my house.

Re: As The Sandman told me....

<font face="Comic Sans MS">How'd you get these American vehicles over there anyhow? I imagine it cost you quite a bit to get 'em over there from here?

That looks like some very cool scenery you guys have over there... Thank you for sharing the pictures... Do you have to buy a special permit to do any off roading or are there just designated areas you can go to without any permits or any of that? What's the most highly modified off road vehicle you've seen around there? </font>

Re: As The Sandman told me....

To get an american car you have three options:
Go to the United States, find the car you like, put it in ship (better on a cargo container) and get crazy with the homologation and taxes you have to pay.
Buy it to an import shop (they do more or less the same), but pray if you have a problem with the car.
Buy it in the official dealer: GM sells here the Cadillac Seville, CTS; Chevrolet Corvette, Alero, Trailblazer, Tahoe and TransSport. Ford sells only european models now but the old F150 (before the Explorer).

In my case, i bought the Pontiac imported from Germany (it's a bigger market for american cars after Sweden), and the Blazer from a person that imported from the USA a couple of years ago.

About going offroad: in some places you can't go off the road, and you can't buy a permission or anything. In other cases you can go, but with rescue equipment (they use to check it). The last case: you pay a "tax" in some places for one car, and in others when there are 3 or more cars together.

Car modifications in Europe are very restrictive, everything that wasn't in the car when the dealer sold it has to be homologated (the builder has to pay quite a lot of taxes), if not it's forbidden. That involves you can't touch almost anything in the car. So we don't see too many modified cars around, that Blazer of the photos atached is the most you can do.

The photos are of a trail i did the day before the photos were taken (by an offroad club in Madrid).

PS: Sorry for the mistakes i could make in my english and for the long post
