If so, maybe try Kenya or Uganda.
We've heard that many of our hijacked and stolen cars end up north in Africa. I must admit that I was surprised to hear that it is also the destination for stolen European cars.
But such is the scale of the problem that an Interpol-led raid in East Africa has led to a decrease in traffic on their roads!!
This all begs the question, how do these thousands of cars get across our borders?

"I don't know whether mine is clean or not, but I'd rather not drive it and tempt fate," said Henry Ssemwanga, a Ugandan whose all-terrain, four-wheel drive Land Cruiser is among the models most targetted for spot checks.
