Car meeting at The Nut House 2020
The beautiful old classic cars
From a friend I got the information about a place where they have car meetings. I had never heard about it, but later when I read about it I see that I have driving by it many times.
I came very early, long time before the meeting starts. The gate was closed and I parked my car on the regular parking lot. Already from here I see that this is a nice place.
You find this place about 20 km North of Stockholm (Sweden).
I took a walk and look for the staff. I meet a lady, I think she was the owner of the place. I excused me and told that my car wasn't really that old. She said: As long you love your car you are welcome.
Now it was time to open the gate and I walked back to my car and drove it in.
Chrysler Crossfire 2005, my own car with a nice little house in the background.
Just after I had parked my car another car arrived. It's a Lotus Elan Sprint from 1973.
There is space for about thirty five cars here.
Before all other cars arrive I took a walk to see what's in the surroundings.
Here is one of the places where you can have a cup of coffee or eat something. The tables are well separated, we have the Corona time now and have a rule that we must keep a distance of two meters between each other.
Another place where you can sit.
There is also a shop here. Good because if not the whole family find old cars interesting, here they have something more to do.
I walked back to the cars. Now a 1976 Pontiac Trans AM has arrived. That was a car that I really wanted back in the 1980s. But it was too expensive and I had to by a cheaper car.
It is these letters that make the car expensive: TRANS AM.
This is a 1992 Porsche 968. This model is a little bit different compare to the regular Porches, it's equipped with a front mounted V8.
This Ford is much older, it's a 1947 Ford Super Delux. Flat head V8, superb condition.
A modern version of the classic Mustang. This special Cobra version has a 5 liter V8 with almost 500 hp. The year make is 2010.
Chevrolet Impala SS Sport Coupe. This car and in this condition many people want to have.
It's only this year, 1965, the Impala has these six round taillights.
Close to my car this car has parked. I talked to the owner and he told me that this car is built on a Chevrolet Monte Carlo of 1976 years model. About hundred of them where built. It's equipped with 400cc V8. I have never seen this model in real life before so it was exiting.
This beautiful old classic Mustang is from 1968. Restored to mint condition.
The green car to the left is made by BMC 1968, model 1800 MGB or MG as I called them. A British car where you can find most spare parts to even today.
The white car to the right is a Mercedes-Benz 230 SL, it's from 1968. These old Mercedes are really collectable today.
A Bentley MK VI from 1949. The cars from 1940s has really curved forms of the body. A very beautiful old British car.
Back to the 1960s, a Plymouth Satellite with a 383cc V8 and some modifications.
Do you know what this is ? It's a shock absorber on a really old car, it's of mechanical friction type. The car is a MG from 1932.
The front of the same car.
A 1975 years Chevrolet Malibu.
Now my friends has arrived and we started with coffee and sandwiches, we got a table for us alone.
My friends car, a 1984 Opel Monza station wagon, it has a straight six cylinder engine. Top condition. Behind a Lincoln Zephyr from 1938. I think it has a flat head V12.
On the other parking lot behind the house we find this beautiful classic Mustang, this is the second year with the first body, 1966.
A Ford Taunus from 1962, a very common car in Sweden when I growing up as a teenager.
An Opel Rekord from 1957. My father had four of these Opel Rekord, all of them were very rusty !
Before we leave I took a walk down to the Gallery to see what's there.
The entrance, it's Mats Eriksson and Lotta Enocsson who has an exhibition of their art.
Just when I was to jump in my car and drive home this Buick Roadmaster from 1956 arrived, it's a four door HT (Hard Top). I love these HT cars.
If you find these four port holes on a car it's a Buick.
One more Opel Rekord before we leave, this car was made 1960.
Shut down the TV and get out and do something more interesting instead, a few months more and the darkness and cold starts!
