In Holland and some other European countries once a 4x4 gets to be 25 years old it becomes exempt road tax, In Holland this means a saving of about $1500 per year, thats why the dutch are buying up all the 25yr old vehicle and therefore keeping the price high.
In the UK for the vehicle to be tax exempt it had to be manufactured before 28th Feb 1973.
