I've been interested in cars since I was a small boy.
My first two cars were pretty ordinary but all my later cars have been somehow non-basic. They have included two open-top cars which I've used as daily cars also during Finnish winters. I've also imported some quite rare (in Finland) cars from Central Europe to Finland. Links to stories related to some of my cars can be found below.
My current cars at the moment (May 2022) are Ford Fiesta ST 2019 and Alpine A110 2022 which I imported from Belgium in spring 2022. I have written a story about Alpine A110 also.
I drove a Ford Focus ST EcoBoost 250 Wagon 2015 before Fiesta. Prior to that I had a Renault Megane RS Trophy 2012 which I imported from Austria to Finland. I also imported my previous car from Austria which was an Abarth 500 esseesse. Prior to that that I've owned a Fiat barchetta 1999 and an Alfa 147 GTA 2003 both of which were imported from Germany.
Stories related to my Alpine A110 can be found on my Alpine A110 pages.
I have not written any stories related to my Fiesta but in addition to the pictures below there are also some additional pictures here.
After three italians I bought a french car when I imported a new Renault Megane RS Trophy from Austria in 2012.
After the Alfa I bought another car from the Fiat Group when I imported a new Abarth 500 from Austria to Finland in spring 2009.
After I sold my barchetta I bought another italian car since I picked up an Alfa Romeo 147 GTA from Germany. The 147 GTA is a pretty rare sight here in Finland since most likely my car was only second 147 GTA in Finland.
I have collected some barchetta information, links and pictures to my own bachetta pages. The taxation of imported used cars in Finland changed in autumn 2002. That gave me an opportunity to acquire a car which I had wanted for a long time - a Fiat barchetta. I owned my barchetta from 2002 to 2006.
