      At first, I thought you had photographed a model... but at a closer look, I can see this is a real-scale bus!

        Back to a more normal world...., and to something beautiful I spotted at the parkinglot at Vestbase when I ended my work today.
        This is an old Volvo 1800S, a bit rusty, but hopefully to be restored by the owner.

            A guy in Kristiansund imported a former US Highway Patrol car a while back, which he's leagaly driving around in.
            Yesterday he was stopped for an ordinary vehicle control by the local police.

            A rather intl. environment here in Kristiansund

              That photo is too funny.

              In the USA I don't think it is illegal to drive around in a police car. It is illegal if you turn on the blue flashing lights and try to pull people over. I wonder how are laws are about driving around in a Norwegian police car.

                About a civilian driving around in a retired Norwegian police car in Norway, I don't know nothing. I would think it is illegal.
                (Usually, or rather always, when the police sell off their retired cars, they are stripped down and being unmarked, so the chanse of getting to meet a retired Norwegian police car fully equipped and marked is microscopic).

                Now, this guy here, with the ex. US police car..., is driving totally legal here. Just to point that out.

                I read about a security company once, which had their cars marked just like the Norwegian police cars, only they had switched the position of the red and blue stripes along the car sides, and the thin rail with the emergancy lights on the roof started to flash orange light instead of blue.
                The police did NOT like that car at all. They would've gone bananas if one came in an old ordinary police car.

                Since we have a policeman in our members list, maybe we could have the question answered in a proper way??

                Back in time we had police car liveries just like this black and white one. Once, a guy painted a Volvo (the main type police car then) black and white, but switched the position of the colours. He mounted flashights on the roof and wrote TYV (thief) on the sides where it should read POLITI (police).
                The car was ment as a joke, but the Norwegian police didn't like that one either.

                Rules and regs of all this? Again, I'm sorry..., don't know.

                  That is a Volvo I have NEVER seen before.... did you take a close up of the logo on the bonnet of the car?

                        Did you never see Helgenen (The Saint) on tv in the 70's then, with Roger Moore as Simon Templar? This was his type of car...

                        In Åndalsnes today, in front of the Statoil gas station was this old Mercedes truck

                                I agree largely with you there
                                Me too was hungry, but I ate at the Statoil station there, drank my coffee and took pictures of the red truck as a 'desert'
