We (Amcar Ask°y) are a club with over 100 members for people with interest in American cars. We are located on the westcoast of Norway, Europe, close to the famous city of Bergen and all the fjords . Over 5 million people lives in Norway. See pictures here.
We are connected to the main American Car Club of Norway (AMCAR), which was founded in 1975 as an organizing body for car clubs and individuals with an interest in American cars and trucks. As of today, AMCAR has grown to include more than 80 clubs (including us) and in excess of 15.500 members nationwide. AMCAR are situated in Trondheim, where a professional staff of eight assist our members in all matters concerning American automobiles.They are fighting against the government to get the import tax down to a lower level, because the tax raise to skyhigh level once you import a car with bigger engine then 2,0 litre and 150 hpFuel in Norway is over $10 a gallon (kr.16,- each litre and 1 dollar is kr.6,-) and the tax on a new Trans Am is close to $100.000! Still, American Cars are very popular in Norway, and holds approximately a 7% market share, trucks included ( Thanks to lower truck import tax ). Cars more than 30 years old can be imported at very low cost - a great benefit to the hobby. Every summer literally hundreds of car shows, races and exhibitions are organized by local clubs.
