I got a couple of interesting emails from a guy in Sweden named Ove Sundén.  This is a very cool story. :cool

He had purchased a 1979 Challenger with a 454 from a dealer in Upland, CA and had it shipped to Sweden where it now resides. :good



This is the boat as seen from a past Classic Boat Beach Bash event.  Does anyone know the screen name of the prior owner?  His real name was included in the emails, but I was hoping someone knew his screen name so we can show him this thread. :D

Notice how the axles were removed and the fenders cut off in order to fit it in the shipping container.

That is a lot of expense for a squirter.  Probably spent almost as much shipping it as he paid for it!  Very cool, though.  I'm glad to see someone over in Europe appreciates them.

Hopefully someone knows the prior owner so he can check these pics out.  Ove has more pics to send him too.  

I hope Ove registers, here, so he can add his comments as well. :D

Thanks Ove for sending me these pics! :good

That deck is a little different than my '78. :stupid  Check out the back.  It sort of looks like a Southwind to me.

That's pretty cool.  Gotta love the tow rigs over there though.  I'll ship him a Duramax for the right amount of money, but it's not going to fit in a shipping container.   :rotflmao  :beer  :D

I wonder how many lakes he has to go to? When I was in Germany they didn't have boat ramps or powerboats on any the lakes I went to.
