    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:

    This veteran bus has it's home at Sunnmore Museum, where it is housed in the old Spjelkavik Ruta garage:


    On one wall I spotted these pictures of the other veteran buses that was in Ulsteinvik a couple of weeks ago:

    Not a veteran I believe, but a nice car out for a spin in the sunshine:

    This one should qualify as a veteran I would think?:

    Thank you all for sharing all those veteran busses and cars - especially the Jaguars!

    I directed a friend of mine to the images as well, and he was very appreciative as he also owns an older veteran Jag.

    You can all see those Raggar-guys from Trondheim in the tv-series "Wonderland". What a gang! (In a positiv way :-) ).

    Yesterday the old #4 of Borgundruta was taken out for a bit of fresh air:


    And today I spotted another Jaguar of veteran age:

    This one is in daily use by a colleague of mine as Examination Guard at the Maritime School.

    Went passed the SV veteran bus today. Too close to other old buses to get any good pictures, but here is the Pakarang view:

    That also identify the original owner, Uhlen Auto: https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uhlens_Transport

    An attempt at an internal view through right front window:

    Not very clear due to reflexion. Pax seats appeared to be in good condition (possibly renewed??) but the driver's seat was somewhat rugged.

    For me it was a challenge to find out the Vauxhall, since they have never been sold in Germany. But it is a Vauxhall Victor FB built from 1961 to 1964.
