  • Nice weather on Friday - we continued to prepare our cars for the summer. New seats and automatic seat belts fitted in my Midget. Next action will be the replacement of the front wheel bearings, the TÜV and on the road in June.

    • Where men becomes boys...., a great place. Love to see pictures from others who also have a passion for old cars

      • Fantastic to see still surviving cars with wooden panels integrated with the steel. Those are truly rare these days, in the age of plastics and carbon-fibers.

          • Now, that is a beauty of a car! Any idea which brand and make it is?

            I would like to say Opel but.... I'm no expert in that field.

              I tend to agree and say Opel Record from the 1950/60, but also not an expert.

              You are right. Exactly it is an Opel (Olympia) Rekord P1. This was built from 1957 until 1960. It was the first model with US-style panoramic windows.
              They built half a million cars of this type. It was a big success.It had a new constructed chassis and a 1.5 liter engine with 45 hp. (later 50 hp + 1.7 liter 60 hp).

          • Another veteran car of German origin seen parked in Aalesund today:








            Ralf will probably furnish all the details soon, if not beaten by Sterkoder.

              Porsche 356 Cabriolet, for many of us made famous used by Kelly McGillis in the motion picture Top Gun.
              This particular one is a model 1953 and owned by a local citizen in Ålesund.
              I really like the combination of black hull, red interior and off-white steering wheel. Details other than that...., I wait for Ralf to complete :-)

              I remember that model from the motion picture "48 hours" where it played a rather important role.

          • Maybe not a veteran, but an unusual car for Aalesund, a "Party Limo" for rent:

            Maybe something to consider when you visit Aalesund next??: https://www.pp-entertainment.com/

            • Veteran bus (ex NSB) seen at the bus depot next door:




              Veteran drivers as well:


              These two cars that brought the veteran drivers probably qualify as veterans too:

              • I believe this one has been featured here before and in much the same location.
                Seen at Skateflukaia yesterday:

                • I just have to say that I LOVE that bus... these are the kind of buses I remember from my own childhood, back then in the liveries and paint-schemes of MØRELINJEN and KLÆBURUTA.

                  Still remember me and my late brother sitting on the engine-box shouting "kjætt-kjætt-kjætt" imitating the sound of the chains on the winterwheels... good times.
