took this from my window right now:



2 ambulances, two firetrucks and two Police cars with full sirens, and plenty more further down the street :shock: wazzup???

I came back from the kitchen and suddenly all hell was loose ... people running and screaming ... I wonder what is going on! So if you don't hear from me I might be gone for ever :cry:

For a moment I thought you were in the US. Why do they use American cars in Norway??
 
They look normal to you because you're American! :p

For instance, why is the firetruck based on a Ford F-series pickup truck?? Are those on sale in Norway?
The Mercedes police car on the right looks a lot more normal for my european standards...
 
firetrucks are so small compared to what we have in Hong Kong... I'll see if I can get some pictures....
 
I love how you guys stick to the vehicle part of this drama :lol: :lol:

I'm fine btw :lol: :p I dunno what happened out there ... they're all gone now ..

my guess is that they don't buy a normal one, and turn it into a firetruck.
it's rather a company which does a survey which car would be best, and transform them, and you can buy what they offer, unrelated wether the base car is available in your countrie.

(and japanese brands don't make suitable cars for transformation :mrgreen: )

Yeah, dunno about that... :lol:
Why would you take the F-series over a Merc? Probably cause they're cheaper I guess. ;)

Glad you're alright then! :p
Maybe you'll read about it in the papers tomorrow.

Wow, I didn't think those trucks are on sale anywhere in Europe!

But why should I buy one of those things?? In Germany and the rest of Europe I'd say pickup trucks are very uncommon. (especially compared to the US of course)
For example, I see a lot more Ferraris than pickups. (I see less than 3 pickups a year) And if I see one it's one of those manly VWs: ;)

We have Scania, Dennis, and Merc. e.t.c.
 
realy?

i see pickups all the time

everyone who wants a big car for small money (you hardly have to pay any taxes on them) buys one. and a lot of gardeners etc do need them for their job

most of them are nissan or toyota, but you can have an F150 over here
