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.
The hotel we stayed at. A hotel with long traditions, and known for good cuisine.
Hmm. Looks like the guests have good taste in cars too.....
Silkesvarten ready to start.
What a beauty! Maybe if I get rich, and don't have to go to work....
100% perfect. Respect man!
A view from Bøverdalen:
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.....)
