stole it from the wife's european delivery souvenir, it even starts with 72, it's been sitting the garage for a year and a half. Might as well put it to use.

At the delivery center I was all proud wearing my 2002 t-shirt, asked the youngster in the souvenir shop about 2002 stuff, and he said that he didn't know much about those "historical" vehicles. My wife was "histerical" laughing... I thought I share with you guys. No I didn't see one single 2002 in Germany..

and a bit of Sweden and Germany-

I saw one 2002. I actually tried to talk to the driver (owner?). We were in a line for a ferry near Copenhagen and a 2002 pulled up near us. It was in real good shape. The fella didn't speak much English (and my Danish is useless) so.... I think he knew I had one and, uhh... maybe some more...

Either way - I was in Denmark 2 weeks and several years later I was in Italy for 12 weeks. That was the only 02 I saw my entire time in Europe...

There are many reasons why they crush their cars so quickly...no space for junkyards, fewer garages at home. But one of the biggest is a socialist industrial mindset. For example VW is largely owned by German government organizations. It's good for employment to force people to buy new cars.

'02, on my first day there (in Aachen). I figured, "cool, I should see lots" but the only others I saw were in the BMW museum. The Germans call them "old-timers" and because of tough safety inspections and high taxes (based on pollution output or something) they are relegated to hardcore collector car status.

I did see a whole bunch of '02s in Athens, Greece, though. Many had 4-headlight grilles, too. I guess the German hand me downs went to poorer countries like Greece and have lasted very well in the dry climate.

regards,

Zenon

I heard too that 02's are prized in Germany and you don't see many on the road. I used to see lots in Greece, and TONS in Macedonia. Pretty cool.
