Interesting. Looks a little like an old Volvo. Does it run on akkevit?

Isn't it a pity that your government decided to support commie automobile industry rather than your own. It seems a fish product can go a long way.
As the production commenced, Kohl-Larsen had to work hard to get a permit from the government to sell the car. He was only allowed to sell 15 cars in Norway. The reason for this was a barter treaty Norway had with the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe to buy cars from them as they bought fish products from Norway. The government was afraid domestic car production would disrupt this trading balance.

Sad. If Norway's car industry hadn't been obstructed, maybe we all would be driving flying cars by now.

Yeah, and the next cars would be named Askeladden and Bukken Bruse.

Or, of course, Il Tempo Gigante:

Why? It surely isn't a beauty, but it's kind of adorable with its cartoonish look.

I'm not necessarily talking about the looks, the whole concept was doomed from day one.

I met a very attractive blonde Norweigan model in HK last week, who had been a member of the Norweigan women's Olympic downhill ski team. She had quite perfect breasts.
