Car meeting at Svindersvik August 2018
The beautiful new and old cars
I have read about there shall be car meetings at Svindersvik, just walking distance from the inner city of Stockholm in Sweden. But they are not scheduled, you must visit the website to see when the next car meeting is scheduled. This day there was one and I took my car for a visit.
I was a bit early and took a walk around before all cars arrive. Svindersvik is an old country residence with the main building built in the 1640s. In this old warehouse they serve ice cream and coffee nowadays.
Svindersviks Brygghus, here you can get something to eat.
Now about 6 pm most of the cars has arrived. The red car is a Triumph Spitfire, common in the 1960s.
Chevrolet El Camino (orange), Ford Mustang, Oldsmobile cabriolet and a Chevrolet SS (Super Sport).
One of the old houses, see the faked brick wall, just painted wood. Just as it was when they built it long time ago.
Gates to the garden.
Old classic wheels.
These impressive caravan of old cars arrived late.
Jeanette, the girl who own the restaurant had to point out the direction to the parking lot to all late arriving cars, the lower parking lot was already full of cars.
Chevrolet Corvette 1963 split window race car.
You only find this split window on the 1963 cars.
Svindersvik is connected to the Baltic Sea.
It's a small harbor with a dock, if you have a small boat, you might get hooked up here for a while, ask the staff here first.
Mazda Miata, Lotus Seven, MG and Porsche.
The man who owned this motor cycle told us that it was 2 year old. Very big engine, a V2 1.7 litre. It had water cooled heads and belt drive. He also told us exiting stories about road trips in US by motor cycle.
It sounds very good with its extra exhaust pipe! AC Cobra.
Mercedes SLK 320 AMG, it has the same body as my Chrysler Crossfire.
Mazda Miata, latest model I was told.
Big engine needs lot of air, double four barrel carburettors.
Russian built motor cycle, I was told that three millions of these was built.
