    Hurry... while walking along the road, and with camera in the backpack, this car suddenly came and turned in front of me: a real stretched limo - in Trondheim!

      Wonder who it was? And what they were doing, and where they were going?

J-O’s photospot on it too – I already had to confess that his floating bridge is one of the “inspirational photos” I have for this month.
        There is no doubt that of all the major places on the Hurtigruten route, your city is the one I know the least. Only set foot on land there once back in 2003, and that to immediately get on a coach for the Atlantic Road excursion and on to Molde. I know, I have to do something about this . . .
        The reason for the short stop for hurtigrute passengers in Kristiansund, are just those "over land" bus tours either to or from Molde.
        Other than that, you often got no more than 20 minutes on land, due to the southbound hurtigrute more than less is delayed.
        On the northbound you arrive at 2200 hours and depart at 2300. Not much life here then, even in the summertime....

        Glad you liked my map. Felt I had to make one to try to give you all the "great picture", if you were able to visualize.

        Scrolled through the start (first 29 pages) of this thread in our old forum just now.
        Many interesting images to see again, but I must say...., if our old friend 'radeon' is around here: can you please activate your Photobucket account again...???
        Many, many great pictures lost

          Absolutely no idea or recollection what car this was, but the sound of it when it drove on board the ferry was pretty awesome.

          Maybe somebody knows the brand of this large cruiser?

            I haven't a clue either Jan-Olav, it's very nice looking though. I must admit I am partial to a V8 Jensen Interceptor..... the sound makes knees go whooosh!

                  I went in on the side panel in the original image, and it says "Centurion".

                  A quick search online shows that it might have been a Buick Centurion.

                    Confirmed...
                    I like the Buick design of the late seventies. I think they also drove Buicks in "The streets of San Francisco". And wasn't Kojak's car also a Buick???

                      Came across this fascinating short video on Norwegian newspaper VG. It's about a young Kazakh man (from Kazakhstan naturally) which rebuilt his Mercedes 124 and made a Rolls Royce Phantom out of it... .

                      Looks pretty impressive I must say...

                      Now, which car should I use as a base when I want to build myself a Maybach 62S.....

                      I also loved that official person on the road registration office: he hadn't applied for a permission to change the type of the car.... sitting in his office with a real stereotype Russian hat...

                        Abandoned or just left?

                            Just wonder:
                            How is it in the USA, do you as a owner of a wreck get any refund when you deliver the remains of a car to a car recycle business...?

                            In Norway we have something called 'vrakpant' (wreck mortgage (don't know the correct word)), and the owner who deliver this wreck get NOK 1.500,-.

                            The last wreck I delivered was a Nissan Bluebird, and since it was during a government campaign to clean up and get as many old cars off the roads as possible, the 'vrakpant' that year (over a decade ago) was NOK 6.000,-.

                              A few days ago, while I was in town, I spotted a car with a registration number just one - one single digit - different from mine. The number and the letters, were almost identical! What a coincidence.

                              (Adding to the story, that car is way cooler than mine... )

                                No, there is no money for turning in an old car. Often when a car breaks and is taken to a mechanic for repairs the owner find out how much it will take to fix the car and they never pay the bill and never pick their car up. Legally it is still owned by the person but it is sitting on the repair lot. There is an annoying legal process that the mechanic must go through before he can have the car hauled away as scrap. Abandonded cars no matter how valuable are scrapped. The legal process to get a title (legal ownership) is too difficult and expensive. It is far easier to have the car legally abandoned and then it can be scrapped for the value of the metal, currently about $500 US Dollars.
