If you were going to drive across the world in a car, what car would you choose for the journey?

I think you could do a hell of a lot worse than an old diesel Mercedes wagon. Few cars are tougher or more efficient, and you can fill it with all your stuff. That's what this Dutch fellow did — his Flickr account is full of photos of his travels to Africa, Eastern Europe and other places in a yellow 300TD wagon. Take a look and be jealous of his adventures.

Then tell us — what would be your choice for a global road trip?
