American Auto Camping

31w ago


Every year, when summer is about to really kick off - a rather interesting bunch of car enthusiasts are gathered at a campsite in the Norwegian city Kristiansand.

People from far and near brings caravans, tents and their favourite American cars for a full weekend of greasy food, good drinks, live music and of course - petrol fueled fun.

I’ve done my fair share of camping when I was younger, but now the thought alone makes me shudder. Luckily, I was just over for a daily visit - and it was a pretty cool day!

When I first arrived I noticed this beautiful 1957 Plymouth Sport Fury trying to hide. (PHOTO: Helene Helle)

  • Beautiful pictures! So atmospheric... I´d take a first generation Camaro. I still love them, although I'm not really in american cars, to be honest.

    • Thank you so much! That's a good one. They're not my first choice either, but they're interesting to look at.
