Not a Mopar specific video, but rather a pretty good mix of all makes. Not over dubbed with stupid doo wop music, you can actually hear the cars. Even got a hot rodded mid-'70's Gran Fury (cop car) about the 14:30 minute mark.

That looks awesome!!! I know they have a huge mopar following over there. Has anyone ever bought a car from over there and brought it here? I know for a while they were buying a lot from the US and bringing them over there.

I've spent time in Scandinavia, they are a really dedicated bunch of enthusiasts, and more often than not, they enjoy a wider interest in all brands than we do..

Buying over there? It's not usually cost-effective to do it that way... much bigger supply here, so you can usually find what you want here and not have to pay $3,500 for shipping it to East Coast..
..BUT, there are a few scarce Mopars there. For those who HAVE to have that special car, money isn't usually the barrier.. IIRC, one of the documented factory 4-door Hemi cars is in Finland.

As a sidenote, the Gran Fury was originally owned by the Finnish Public Broadcasting company, the police car theme came about when the owner found the Streethawk lightbar in the trash (yes, it is way too new for the car), the engine is a 511 and has been dynoed at 592hp.

The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.
