  • Drage Veterantreff - a biannual gathering of veteran cars, tractors, trucks, military vehicles, motorcycles, stationary engines and what not

    Every second year a farmer and his family at island Aspøya south of Kristiansund open up the Drage farm and offer the farm fields for exhibition of all sorts of veteran vehicles and engines.
    Last time was 2015, so it was time again for a new event.
    Sadly for the military enthusiasts, this was the same weekend as several confirmations in families around the area, and a couple of the guys in the historic military vehicles society were away for a national meeting.
    Anyway, we managed four cars from Kristiansund this time and one Volvo owned by the farmer.

    Here we go, and start with the farms main entrance for participating cars and public

              Wonderful set of pictures.
              I like to know, if that white car visible in #1/1 and 1/3 (left edge) is a Morris oxford under restoration? Seems so, i posted pictures pictures of the station wagon owned by my friend recently in the Veteran Car thread.
              #1/5 This Rekord C Coupé seems to be in excellent condition!!
              #2/5, 2/6 same is the Bully. For sure the most expensive car on this exhibition. Good cars like this are exceeding the € 100.000, if sold these days.
              #3/3 I am in love with this Opel Blitz generation.
              #4/4 Did you notice the siver Saab 9000 in the middle of the crowd. There is one near my office and it has a H-number, that means, older than 30 years. Look at it! Such a modern design! That is art.
              #6 Well.....
