Patiently awaiting an old friend at the small docks in Hamar. Paddle steamer approaching is called Skibladner, and is the worlds oldest of it's kind still in timetable traffic. She made her maiden voyage on august 2. 1856, and has been operating the same route on norways biggest lake Mjøsa ever since.
The fact that the panelvan was sold from Hamars VW dealer Olrud in november 54, and having spent all its life in the area gives us good reasons to believe that these two workhorses have met quite a few times in the past
It's old, it's cool and it's made out of aluminium. In other words we just could not refuse it, even though it ain't a car...
We picked this one up in Sweden, and we know there is another one just like it still around there. That is about all we know about this beauty.
If anyone has some info feel free to drop us an e-mail or leave a comment..
