  • Veteran Cars

    I don't know what is the official definition of a Veteran Car in various countries, by any vehicle over 25 years old has that distinction in Singapore.

    What I do know is that we don't have a thread for Veteran Cars on CVF. (Or do we??)

    To kick one off, here is one old vehicle seen on the streets of Singapore a few days ago.
    This one must most certainly qualify under that category:

    Yeah, we should definitely have a veteran car-thread....

    I love these kind of cars, and would love having an own by myself... especially the one which opens this thread!

      Nice tires


      Model 1951 Rover 75




      Model 1958 Morris Minor

          An old Opel Olympia from I don't know when, pictured at the gas station besides road E-6 at Otta in 2005 (Wow, how the years pass by)


          And also in 2005, I visited the Norwegian Road Museum. Here they had one of the prototypes to the only norwegian car ever produced, the TROLL.
          Never mede it past the prototypes though...

            So glad you (re)posted those, because I do not remember seeing them.

            Darn... the 1934 Talbot London 110 is just to my liking! I wonder how it would feel like going to work in a car like that? Amazing possibly?

              Oh, the Jaguar E-type. A car I would love to see parked in my garage some day. I have the space saved for it. I just need the money to buy the car to fill the space.

                If I had any of these cars, it would only be parked in a garage during rainy days!

                  A minimalized car indeed:

                  Seen at Slinningen, Aalesund and appeared to be in daily use, not a display item.

                    A Mercedes 280 SEL seen parked and driving in Aalesund a few days ago:


                    I owned a very similar car in the 1980s. Could it be the same, but with new number plates???

                        hi there,

                        ouch another soft spot for me

                        i'm happy that i actually owned several veteran cars,
                        however they are better described as young classics..

                        i started with a Saab 95 from 1972 (that was in 1986)



                        than years later i owned an Audi 100 Coupe S like this:
                        if i remember well she was built in 1975





                        as her automatic gear box broke down quickly i didn't enjoy
                        her company for long

                        this BMW did much better (732i from 1980) 4 years my company



                        untill i met a truck which i was overtaking but she didn't notice...
                        so now i 'm back with Saab, 900 Turbo T8 from1985



                        in Holland you do not pay tax when a car is over 25 years of age...
                        (one of the reasons)

                        best regards,
                        b. Joe

                          I'm still trying to work that one out Joe! Sounds nasty though.

                            Very nice one.... BMW really knew how to make nice looking cars back then (they still do).

                              well i did drive only 30 miles and the lorry did 25
                              so this was the result...[IMG][/IMG]

                              so i got out unharmed.
                              the repairs didn't make up for the value of the car so i sold it
                              (i was looking for something more economic anyway)
