Rides of Heads of State (Part 25.5)

164. Sudan. Mr. Nice Guy rides in a Merc S-class.

165. Uzbekistan. Karimov's goons have been known to give months-long gulag vacations to those who take pictures of his Merc S-class. So no photo for you.

166. Barbados. Mitsubishi Pajero.

167. Bahamas. The Bahamian PMs have always been partial to American sedans. A 2000 photo showed the then-PM's Lincoln Continental. Here, we see the current PM next to his Caddy DTS.

I thought I'd solve the puzzles that are the official cars of Paraguay and Suriname, but no. Stay tuned.
