I have been checking out the types and makes of 4X4's while in Germany, seen a few Suzukis, and Toyota Rav 4 , here's some photo's of some from around the Mainz area.
Also seen something like an early Toyota Hilux but I would presume called something else. 4X4's are not seen as much as in Australia so when one sees a Hummer it really stands out. As for cars Convertibles are popular and so are Smarts

Good morning Doug
They look a lot like the 4x4's seen here in Melbourne, never seen a dirt road in their life. Are you bringing anything special home from your trip?

Doug,

Remember that when the German ladies-of-the-night say they want to be paid in marks; don't tell them 7 out of 10.
If you relax at a faster pace you can get more relaxation in for a given time.
Regards Rob

The first pic is of an Opel, the German wing of GM. Like out early Bighorns/Jackaroo.

The reason why one does not see many bigger cars in Europe, let alone 4x4's, is because of the cost of vehicle registration. This is measured by the cc rating of the vehicle.
So expensive in fact that many people only register their vehicle 3 months at a time.

Cheers, Case, Virginia, NT.

The Opel/Rebadged Isuzu is understandable because at the time that was made Isuzu was owned by General Motors and they sold it around the world in a number of guises - like in Australia as the Jackaroo as an example. It was also called the Isuzu Trooper and Chevrolet Trooper.
