    Windows blanked out.

    Risking damage to the Mazda.

    Sniff sniff - something smells not quite right.

    What are the car import taxes/restrictions in Kazakstan?

    I Bet You Cant Fit A Mazda 626 Inside A Sprinter...

    [​IMG]

    Police in Germany stopped this Kazakh-plated Sprinter van on the A1 Autobahn after noticing the rear door wasn't quite flush. Upon stopping the vehicle they realized why.

    A pair of 22-year-old Kazakh men apparently purchased the Mazda 626 and, rather than merely tow the vehicle, they decided the Mazda would fit inside their van so they put it on its side and somehow hoisted it into the back. It's supported on either side to avoid scratching the paint.


    The nose of the sedan touches the dashboard and, despite some measurements that must have told them it was a good idea, they couldn't quite get the back doors to close. Oh, and one of the passengers had to sit between the hood and the front seats.

    German police shut them down claiming the van was over-loaded and not sufficiently packed. Hopefully, someone pointed out the other person could just, you know, drive it

    New job for Ringway. Car delivery. At least he would have a decent set of blinds to cover the windows in the Sprinter.
