North Korea is a foreign country. The people have no food, are actually locked up and the government intends to use manned spaceflight while the dignitaries drive around in copied Mercedes. Apparently, the regime once bought one and pulled a number of copies there. Just measure everything and make it yourself sometime.

AMK reader Henk Velsink encountered entire gangs of Volvo 144s during his trip. They had clearly already had a whole life and were therefore certainly born in Sweden. But how did they end up in North Korea. And do they drive like taxis there?
