She´s home...

I´m proud to present a few pics of my Fleetwood I bought a while ago. She´s a 1996 Brougham.

Yep it is. It´s a 1977 Lincoln Town Car coupe but owning 2 US cars is nothing special.
Sweden is the largest US car scene in the world, outside US of course. We worship our yanktanks

I'm digging the CTS-V emblem on the front fenders! Nice.

Yeah, the American Car collecting hobby is big in Sweden and Norway. There are a few guys on the Cadillac-LaSalle-Club forum from that corner of the world. They've posted pictures of their cruise-ins where you'll see a gathering of 20-30 US cars of all ages and conditions. Quite amazing to see when you realize where it is.

The car actually belonged to a forum member, and another member Before that. Maybe someone recognize it

He contacted me just before chrismas last year and the car still isn´t registered over here! The whole export import procedure takes time!!!
