Flåklypa Grand Prix 2010

This weekend we participated in Norways largest vintage car event. Flåklypa Grand Prix This year about 350 cars was at the start line. The cars should be from before 1970 to be allowed to start. This was a fantastic experience!! Hundreds of people was standing along the roads with flags and cheering when we passed. And the scenery and atmosphere was breathtaking. We already look forward to next years event!

Of course we took some pictures.

On our way to Lom.

Hmm. Looks like the guests have good taste in cars too.....

400 kilometers this weekend without any problems. Cruising in normal (norweginan) highway speed is no problem for this car. The sound from the engine is like music. But there is one thing I am wondering about. Why does a 54 years old car with two carburettors and a inline six use less fuel than a car from 2010 with twohundred and fifty sensors and electronic fuel injection? Something must have gone wrong somewhere!! (and the new car is boring to drive too.....)

A big event for Silkesvarten

Last weekend I had the honor of giving a friend from the youth help with transportation at their wedding. Events like this is what Silkesvarten is made for, and the car behaved like it should. The wedding couple had engaged one of the words most famous snowboarding photographer to take pictures. And I am allowed to publish some photos from the big event. When I look at photos taken by a professional I have no problems to see the difference in quality by an amateur.

A beautiful couple in the (beautiful) car!
