    "Didn’t you ever hear the crazy tail about the unsold Sao Penzas in N W England that were  sent to Northern Ireland ....about a dozen of them. A year or two later this Guy from St Kitts came  across them ...10 still unsold by now in a farmers barn in Co Fermanagh. He bought them as a job lot for tiddly winks, and sent them home to St Kitts in exchange for two or three maybe four unsold  De Lorean cars....well he had a to make some money SOMEHOW ..., !   Having failed to sell on St Kitts 5 were broken for spares to keep or get the other 5 going, so effectively a buyer bought one in running condition and the other for use as spares. That got rid of 2 or maybe 3 ...the others went to Nevis where they languished at TDC for a number  of years....unsold. Somebody at TDC whose family hailed from Barbuda, rounded them ALL  up, there was some crooked/bizarre  West Indian deal concerning a ferry...two were driven aboard, the rest loaded with a backhoe and the whole lot sent to Barbuda....under cover of darkness....it was  Vital that the Antiguan authorities knew absolutly nothing....NO DUTY....   Then came the devastating Hurricane....amazingly one survived.....and was last heard of being  taken to Cuba....along with a load of black & white TV sets..."

    Having lived/worked in Sarf Efrica for some time, I am very aware of the curious S.A. variants
    and unique vehicles produced there, so I can safely say I have seen another imported Penza,
    initially on SA plates, then re-registered on UK plates, driving round Bournemouth suburbs by
    a young lady, it must have been her daily, as I would often see it turn at lights on the A348.

    lovejoy reacted to RayMK in Can we have a Yank thread?   
    While I love the big 1950s and 60s land yachts, I have zero experience of driving or being passenger in one. In the 1990s work caused me to be in the USA frequently and one of the highlights was the hiring of a US car for each visit of 1 to 5 weeks.  This mainly exposed me to V6s but I did have a Cadillac V8 Coupe for a couple of days.  The cars I can recall hiring were:
    Dodge Intrepid, 1st and 2nd generation  ( I loved these)
    Chevrolet Luminar 1st and 2nd generation (A bit bland but competant and comfortable)
    Buick Century (2000 shape)  (Entertaining and had no desire to stay straight: steering wheel required constant adjustment even on straight roads) 
    Pontiac Grand Prix (1999ish model) ( Ok but forgettable)
    Oldsmobile Cierra (Appalling. Every imperfection in the road was magnified and made the thing creek and shudder)
    Cadillac Eldorado Coupe (1995).  ( A waft mobile with the handling of a barge)
     
    I would happily own an Intrepid 1st or 2nd gen but an Oldsmobile Toronado 1st generation has always appealed.
