    Wait, is that Dodge the one that was on eBay recently? I've never seen one like it in person, congrats.

    I`ll see what I can find...This particular Wagon was the start of my love affair for American family wagons.
    The fender rear view mirror could n`t be better. was it adjusted from inside?
    Here my daughter and I collect my Wide Glide from the garage (F42 Sat 13/5- today Thu 18/5 F70).
    Andrew, I`m glad you answered to me.

    I'm reasonably sure those mirrors were manual, but if someone has an owner's manual for this wagon, it would tell you if they were remotely adjustable.

    I would say $2,300 is a pretty good price for shipping a big car from l.A. to Sweden. In late 2012, I paid $1,100 just to get the 'Way-Back Machine' from Wisconsin to here in Oregon - just over 2000 miles (3239 km's)

    Nice pics!!! So that looks like my bike but nicer... mines is a 96 fxr. It's cool but I enjoy my 79 Yamaha 1100 much much more! I only ride the Harley when I'm with other people, just to fit in and be cool. When I want to dust all those other people a take the yammer hammer! Vrrrrroooooommmm!!!

    This is a pic of my 2010 Triumph Tiger when i bought it new in 2011 with my son and years later he has his own bike. He isnt into bikes as much as I am but thats fine with all the ahole cagers who cant put down their damn phones. Anything with wheels and a motor gets me excited LOL. I have had a bunch of bikes over the years!

    Hello Mr Krash! The shipping invoice from California Shipping was 2300$ including towing 650$ = 1650$
    shipping to Sweden. Now i`m on searching a packed with Dodge Monaco-72 magazine ads,books, drivers and workshop manuals.
    Thank you for letting me know I had a good deal. Best Regards Kim.

    PS At first the towing price was 450$, but the first truck was to small!DS

    Howdy Mr Grizz! Send me a pic. of you 96 fxr. I also had a fxr -82 with 80" shovel.
    How is the bike roads in TN ?
    Here is some more mc-pics. The Kawa 1100 Zephyr is a retro copy of Kawa 900 Z1, but the Z1 is faster.
