    Hilarious. I've seen this car in the Pontiac area. It was the only other 70-71 Ranchero I ever saw, other than mine. Now it's heading to Iceland, and mine is in VA.

    Welcome Son of Olaf! I hope when you get her back to Iceland that you take her for a scenic drive and take lots of pics. I had the distinct pleasure of being "stranded" in Reykjavík for the better part of two weeks and got to go about. That is beautiful country in a raw natural way, the Northern Lights there are just jaw dropping stunning. Other than the scenery, drinking and lovely ladies the bakery goods are to die for.

    Cheers,

    Doc

    I see you learnd how the last names works in Iceland :)

    But if you was only in Reykjarvík area you haven't seen nothing yet! I live in the north side of Iceland in Akureyri.

    That is funny!! I just found this ranchero on craiglist and had my friend jump on a plain to get it for me. The man that sold it to my bought the car from California 20years ago.

    I tried to assimilate the best I could in any country I have gone to, I can get a beer, find a bathroom, get fed and slapped by gentler sex in about 9 languages :rolleyes:. Alas I could not stray far from home base as I had to check flight availability once a day as well as accomplish any other odd bits they had that needed doing. I had one hell of a time getting my tongue wrapped around the printed word but could parrot rather effectively which got me a couple of unofficial guided tours to some very beautiful places as well as access to AWESOME local foods away from the base and "normal" American haunts. I count Iceland, New Zealand and Australia to be my top three "Go back to places". My wife want's to do Europe, Meh. Good history, dirty as hell :confused:.

    Cheers,

    Doc
