Also seeing that Mercedes SUV, the really expensive ones.

yeah I need to grab my camera and just shoot all the odd trucks... like great wall and deer. I also like how they have hood ordements.. It was worse in Kuwait.. I think I lot of stuff here in Iraq was made for defrent markets but the stuff the looks to be made for the local market all has hood ordements.

I noticed quite a few nissan trucks when i was in Iraq. First time I'd seen or driven a Toyota Hilux was there. They have odd vehicles over there, especially the buses with the fold down seats. Wish I would have taken pics of all the cars/trucks that I saw there.

tata brand is big around there. when we went to go pick our mv's up in kuwait city, we'd see new mustangs and bimmers and benzos just sittin on the side of the road. rumor was if the car broke down, they (kuwaitis) just leave it there and buy a new one. then you cross over to iraq, and you see nothin but caprices, and old vw type vehicles. oddly alot had an orange and white paint job. really strange. any of you vets ever notice that
