A great deal on a 1946 Beetle

This is something you do not see every day... a 3-owners-from-new, unmolested and correct 1946 Beetle... At the price of 40K USD before bargaining...this is by far the best deal we have seen in a long time...

Bananabumpers and big bakelite knobs....gotta love it!

Check it out:

How we spent our saturday morning

1961 15w deluxe bus rescue. Having the proper tools made this job a breeze :-)

A train to catch..

When all of a sudden this little fella came 
along we were surprised by the very
familiar sounding engine noise.. 
Naturally we had to investigate, and what do you

A sweet little 30hp VW industrial engine.
We even got the operator to take us along for a little
rail inspection trip :-)
Center mounted hydraulic jack makes it
possible to lift and turn the little train if needed.

This little thing was COOL!

58th annual Sandviken - Sundvolden

The Norwegian classic car club (Norsk Veteranvogn Klubb) held the 58th edition of their annual Sandviken - Sundvolden "race" yesterday, so we took the Rometsch coupe' out for a little navigation rallying. Here are some random pics.

This Chevrolet had a norwegian built aluminium body and a cool "fat man's" steering wheel

Nice patina on this awesome Stutz.

Streamlined Peugeot

This enormous Pierce Arrow was found rotting away in a creek in the norwegian forrests many moons ago. With only fragments to start with this was a very impressive restauration.

Trusty old swede.. 1935 Volvo 659

An interesting oddball. Aircooled inline 6 cylinder Franklin. With bonnet closed the cylinders are sealed of from the rest of the enginebay. Cold air is forced through the grille, down past the cylinders and from there it is sucked out and under the car through a huge crankmounted fan where the flywheel normally would be..
