    Veteran Car Museum Kristiansund

    It's not that I couldn't use any other thread, but in Kristiansund today we had the opening of a Veteran Car Museum. A small and easy start, but plans are to expand so I suspect there will be more pictures from this specific place. That's why I start a new thread.

    To men who are both pensioners, has for a good time now, used all their energy to build up a museum for veteran cars and equipment from the 1950s-60s and 70s. A huge round of applause to them, and to Mr. Slatlem, who gave them a location for free. Mr. Slatlem is the dealer for Mercedec-Benz, Mazda, Kia and Peugeot in Kristiansund.

    All pictures here are taken with my Pentax, hand held.

              Thanks, Tommi.
              The place is located at a car dealer, who love veteran cars himself. He want to give the museum more space when the dealer move to a new location in a year and a half.
              Tried a couple of pictures with blitz...., not working out at all.

              Flash is difficult. You probably need to flash in some other direction to get nice results.
              With natural light, it's easy to see how the picture will appear.

              In general I hate flashlight. Natural light or a couple of RotoLights would be my choise any time :-)

            Excellent new report and definitely a place to visit in the future!

            I'm actually struck by the familiarity of some of the cars on display - they were quite "common" during my childhood, and now, they are all rare examples of that time.

            I do remember a lot of SIMCA cars especially.... one at my grandparents farm in the hillside at Viklandet. I wonder if it is still in the forest near the farm....(?)

              Wonderful and very special because of the variety of everyday-cars. In many museums a see expensive and rare super-restaurated luxury cars. You do never see them in real life on the streets. This is much better! We had yesterday an afternoon excursion with a 1959 Ford Sedan Country Squire owned by a friend of mine...
              Here you can see the advertising video, before he baught it in the U.S.. Will try to get some pictures later and post them.

                  All I can say is GOD BLESS all those that still see the beauty in these kinds of cars, and that takes care of them for the future.

                    Totally agree with you, Jan-Olav..., and thanks for the blessing, as I own and take care of the very first full production army Volvo field wagon delivered to the Royal Norwegian Army in 1963
