The Car is since '93 in Germany. I bought it in October '11 - so I hadn't had any problems^^
The head- and taillights are stock. Even the red indicators at the back Very Happy

The exhaust is from the first german owner I think, I'm the third.

Very nice! I also have a '92 OCC, they're nice wagons! I wonder how many OCC's wound up in Europe. Probably not many. Have you seen any other OCCs in Germany?

Great looking OCC! I need to put some elbow grease into polishing my wheels; yours look nice.

Regarding your odometer, do the speedometer & trip-meter function?

Yep, Speedometer works perfect.
Tripmeter.. similar to odometer.. not really.
It usually begins to work at about 55mph and above.
Below its not working, except yesterday at -6°C ^^ then it even worked sometimes at ~35mph. But not constantly.

It was when I was there in the mid 80's. Been through Checkpoint Alpha in Helmstedt (is it the A2?) more times than I can count because my wife is from Berlin (west, French sector)

Welcome to the group Sebastian,thats a good looking OCC you have there.Personally I think the
OCCs are the best looking of all the b bodies and definitely the rarest of all too.

@phantom: AFAIK there are no german taillights.
The Indicators normally comes instead the backup-lamps with orange-flashing lamps. So you need an external backup-lamp.
The T84s seems to be very rare and expensive out here (~800$)

@all: Thank you for the nice welcome.

Notfalls kann ich Uebersetzen. Spreche fliessend Deutsch und Englisch, aber mit der Gramattik ist es mitlerweile nicht mehr so doll.

That would work too. Might not be as accurate with car terms though.
