    I've never smoked, Thanks.

    It is not about being easy or not. It is about being interesting.

    ^^ Volvo PV61. technically a Cabriolet

    At school you have to put the workings or method of arriving at the answer in the RH margin.
    So.
    Look at picture.
    If answer not immediate look more closely at the picture.
    If badge on bonnet/hood not obvious look more closely.
    Look even more closer at picture. In this case the hubcaps. Says Volvo.
    Search internet for vintage Volvo P cars. Because old model Volvos numbers start with a P (P1800)

    Obviously in this case the left-hand drive steering wheel is subterfuge

    Speaking of squeezing a V8 into a hairdresser car.

    I mate just picked up a Bullet V8 Roadster (1uz Supercharged MX5) to park along side his Bullet Rotary roadster.

    I'm not sure what you mean

    But a lot of swedish cars were born with lefthand steering, eventhough Sweden still had lefthand drive.

    I googled it

    Sweden drove on the left until 1967-ish. Unless built for export then a Swedish car prior to 1967 would have the steering wheel on the right. There is no reason why a Swedish car would not be built for export but showing a pre 1967 car with the steering wheel on the left suggests it comes from a country which drives on the right.

    Todd Wilkes Car (The Judge), I did some work on that.

    He was one of the nicest blokes one could hope to meet, taken way too early at the age of 29.... In that very car.

    Nothing I did on the vehicle was a cause for the accident.

    D


    De svenske biler, Volvo og Saab, fyldte godt på vejene dengang. Men de svenske biler var siden lang tid udstyret med rattet i venstre side af hensyn til eksporten. Omlægningen havde derfor ingen stor betydning for bilfabrikkerne


    From danish wiki
    Ask Lom when he shows up

    Edit:
    Checked some more

    Seems that the swedish cars always were left hand steered.

    Whatever
