Car meeting at Trosa 2024

Nice old town and nice old cars to look at


About 65 km South West of Stockholm City is a small city, Trosa. A very beautiful old town located where the Trosa river flows into the Baltic Sea. Car meetings for old classic cars are held here during the summer on Thursdays.

We asked our friend Ivan if he was interested to take a trip in his old Chrysler to Trosa and visit the car meeting. The weather isn't perfect but better to go for this compare to sitting at home. He agree that it's a good idea.

The car consume almost 2 liters per 10 km, so a full tank of petrol is what counts.

Check oil, cooling water and power steering oil. Look at the great engine, a 413 cc (7 liters) big block V8 with twin four-port carburetor, a lot of horse power 60 years ago and even today.

When we come back to the car meeting a little over an hour later, several old cars have arrived. The weather is not so good, cold and quite windy, so we don't count on the car park being full.

We didn't expect more cars to come and we didn't want it to be too late in the evening either. We start driving home through the old city.

The Chrysler was originally bought by a dentist in Switzerland. He pointed in the catalog of the car dealer which car he wanted and ordered it. He didn't even have a driver's license but his wife got to drive it.
