    Veteran car spotting from the veranda.
    This old military type seams to be somebody's daily car:


    While this one appears to be used once in a while only:

      That camo car is a MB 240 Geländerwagen fieldwagon model 1983 sold out from the Norwegian Army to civil owner in 2005.
      By June 2015 this car had 35.005 km on its meter, something that mean 1.093 km/year...., or in other words, almost not driven at all (if info is correct).
      The MB 240 replaced the Volvo Felt, the type fieldwagon I own.

          Not so flashy. I believe this one is in daily use:

            Nice finds. The MGB is in good condition, same colour as my Midget and also most of the dashboard is identic. The Lincoln Continental looks a bit tired, The Buick looks better, but my friend is experiencing, that such cars have always something wrong. And mostly you need spare parts directly from the US. The Opel Rekord C is a nice daily driver, fun to ride and cheap to maintain. Well and the typical Coke-bottle Corvette Convertible...the sidepipes are spoiling the look.

              Don't know brand and model, but I'm sure somebody else do.

                Many, or to be honest most, of the details tell me that this is a Ford somewhere around a model 1930 :-)

                Sterkoder, i agree. In my opinion it is a Ford Model A Tudor Sedan, which was built from 1928 to 1931.

                Looks like that Ape got stuck a few years ago, and that it was left there. rolfl

                  Two pictures of our weekend ride in a 1959 Ford Country Squire owned by a friend of mine.
                  Impressive car, but a hell to ride on curvy, bumpy roads. It is like steering a houseboat...

                    What a great looking wagon. And those red fuzzy dizes..., had a couple hanging from the rear view mirror in my old Opel Rekord mod. 1968. I'm not an expert in doing maintenance, but I love old cars

                          This weekend is the "spring-release" of motorbikes and veteran cars around Trondheim - we expect some 150+ motorcycles on board this afternoon. The summer is coming!
