Too Close To Russia - Finland Trip

Good morning from Finland again. I’ll be here for a few weeks working the annual outage at TVO.

First car I saw is one I’ve been hunting for since I started working over here. Clubsport GTI in the parking deck! How do you tell if it’s an S? Those badass seats? Still has the studded tires in as it’s early spring here.

As usual, I’ll share photos and of course cars I find interesting. Hope you all do as well.

Along the roads you will see caution tape in certain areas. This is to show where moose have been active. If the tape is disturbed, moose/wildlife have been moving through.

Nothing unusual in those cars..we get them...local dealership had a few MK7 GTI Clubsport & a CCS...(no rear seat)...

Passat R-Line estate we get a few over here (local)...just cost on the road tax & usually they have diesel engines....needs a nice big petrol...

Finally saw the Golf R wagon, estate, combi, farimari today. Saw a lapis blue one with bronze wheels while driving but couldn’t get a photo. The other photos are from Tampere, Finland.

Interesting times for sure. I am not working on unit 3. We are working the annual maintenance project for unit 1.
TVO Unit 3 is the massive PWR that took a LONG time to complete.

Tervatula to NATO. I love the country of Finland very much.

As far as the mk2 Golf Country, yes very rare. Only 7735 were made and the one I shared Is pretty mint. Awesome car that I would love to have in the US

I am working with several Swedes in this project as well. I will be traveling to Sweden in August to OKG near Oskarshamn. I stay in Vestarvik while I am there.
