Fortunately, the car is still owned by the club, and participates in the most important events.

The club’s mission is to help its members to trace, restore and care for such vehicles, 30 years and older.

Rallies and other arrangements are normally carried out from April to October. However, the season has been somewhat extended, given that there is always some enthusiasts who takes part in “Den Første Ordentlige Vaarmønstring” (The first Real Spring Meet) which for years has started from University Square in Oslo on January 1st. The trip ends at Frognerseteren, where ice cream is served outdoors to those driving open cars or motor bikes.

Here you will find automotive parts, supplies, books, magazines, and vehicles from wrecks to restored ones. In addition you will find other things of interest for the rest of the family, make time to visit Ekeberg Camping in Oslo this day. The size of the market makes it something special. You are likely to find something that you would like to buy, maybe it is something that you even need!
