@Galro, You're puttting a lot of good stuff here. Don't stop
As for Opala (I like this kind of cars) it had bigger engines than Rekord, including 2,5L and even 4,1L sixes. The latter is huge displacement for european conditions.

MB W123 T in Katowice:

I have many more pictures, but I thought I would wait to post them in order to not completely spam the tread.

No, only in 1992 did they change the body (and the name, and everything actually) when they brought the Opel Omega, called Chevrolet Omega:




We also had the estate version of Opala in Brazil, called Chevrolet Caravan:





Only as a two-door, did the Caravan have a four door version in Europe?

Yes, 2,5 liter with 4 liters and 4,1 liter with 6 cylinders. It was derived from the Impala engine.

In 1974 all cars sold in sweden had to have wipers on the headlights.

Saab introduced it already on their models in 1972.

Some models had wipers, high pressure washers also were allowed

Volvo, Saab, Opel, Ford had wipers. Mazda, VW had washers only.

In the early 90's this requirement was abolished.

MB 230 1978

My 1978 MB 230. Bought it in jan 1993. Sold it in dec 1994.

The headlight wipers on this car was removed, they easilly broke and replacing them was not worth.

Yes all brands had wipers+washers or high pressure washers only, from 1974.

MB had wipers. I tried to find a picture but it's not easy. Most owners removed the headlight wipers when the requirement was abolished.

No idea of what car is this, I took this pic near Schaffhausen (CH). I suppose only was made in 1928, reading the license plate

Maybe I found, could be an Amilcar Riley? That R in the license plate makes me think of it
