If the SAAB 95 is considered rare in sweden, it is almost non existant in other countries.

The Saab 95 is way more common than the Renault 12 (?)

Lada Samara was not an uncommon car in the 90's but now I rarely see them.

First time ever I see a Giardinetta Fiat 500 estate. Very funny car, seems abandoned too. Actually I saw quite a few 1960's Fiat 500 (non estate) when I visited Italy a year ago.





It's great looking car. Also enjoy the new one, but I'd rather drive a bigger car.

The Alfa Sud was a rather common car in Sweden during the 1970-80's, now they all have disipeard, because of corosion.

Italian cars in general are very rare nowadays here in Scandinavia. They don't fit into the climate and the need of swedish people who prefer bigger vehicles especially estate-waggons.

That's not a Fiat 500, but it's a Fiat 600

It was the 2° Brianza Tour, they started from Monza and drove around in the surrounding towns and finished to eat in this restaurant.

The Renault is a Renault 12 as you say. At first I thought it was a Renault 15.

Mazda Familia

Toyota (Not sure about what model, can it be a Tercel?)

Volvo 480 (Even though this is a Volvo, I hardly ever see them)
The Lancia is very rare, first letter "T" for this 90's car means it's imported.

Lancia had succes in sweden with the Saab-Lancia 600 in the late 70's a swedish-italian joint venture, otherwise few Lancias sold here.

Mazda 323 early 80's uncommon but no sensation, same thing with the Toyota Starlet.

The Volvo 480 was a fail, already when entering the market in the late 80's ,the car had major electrical problems. It was manufactured in the Netherlands.

here in the streets of Quezon City, Philippines, the rare cars are:

Opel Astra Club Wagon (1999-2003)



Opel discontinued dealership in the country in 2003/4. But parts and services remain available.


Honda HRV (model shown is 2000)



sales were just lmtd.edtns...


BMW 750i (all year models)



BMW 3 series is more common since they are more affordable than 5 and 7-series.

others are:

Mitsubishi Galant 2004 & up
Nissan Teana
Nissan Murano
Ford Mustang
Toyota Alphard
Audi A6

Interesting, is Opel considered to be an exclusive car in the phillipines?, probably jeeps and suvs are more popular there because of poor road quality in some areas.

Opel is one of the most common brands in sweden with volvo, saab, vw and audi.

In countries like UK,USA and Australia Opel is sold as Vauxhall, Cadillac Catera and Holden. Do these brands sell in the phillipines ?
