(first posted 2/24/2017) These lovely snaps come from the VW Vortex forum, which has a near 500-page thread of vintage car pics. They were posted by an Oslo-based member under the pseudonym Galrot. What I particularly like about these is how eclectic they are. In countries with no national automaker(s), that’s to be expected.
I did not edit, crop or comment on these pics, save to indicate what I think the cars are and my best guess as to their model year. I trust the CCommentariat will point out any mistakes and rectify my many approximations. These are posted in no particular order.
It seems like there were a lot of Chevys and (for some reason) Simcas in Norway, 50-60 years ago. What would you pick to go see the fjords?
Tomorrow, we’ll go on a trip through the country and have a look at roads and streets, with a more copious selection of old metal.
Update by PN: here’s a fascinating documentary on American car culture in Norway in 1965 left by a commenter. No subtitles; just skip through the talking parts. It give a great insight as to how pervasive American car culture was in Europe already at the time.
