Welcome. You drive my favourite J7! Pics please
Welcome to the forum. That's a real piece of TMC history - sounds like you are infected for life :)
Iceland sounds like a nice adventure. Going this year? Found a ship yet? Looking forward to following your preparations.

PS: Iceland would be OverSea, not overland ;) although there is this story of the two French 4x4s showing up at the north coast of Norway with plans to drive to the north pole...
Thanks @uHu ! Yes we do plan to take a ship from Denmark… so it will be over sea ;) I just want to put these two photogenic things (the Cruiser and Iceland) together.
