An early classics meet in pictures

What at first seemed to be a hopeless attempt at shooting classics in Southern Norway, turned out to be one of the most memorable.

The rain had fallen steadily without letting up all day, and as I was on my way to the small town of Vennesla in Southern Norway, the small drops seemed to dive even more heavily than before.

With most people only just having started to roll their precious classics out of their winter lair, I didn't expect to see much. And with it being a last minute event, on what seemed to be the worst possible day, it seemed rather hopeless.

Luckily, the rain gave way just in time. It was not long until the place was filled with the melodic sound of old engines, and some truly magnificent cars decorating the industrial park.

A nice 1986 Ford Sierra was the first thing to greet us when we entered the industrial park, the home of the local repair shop who invited classic fans to show off, have a look, and get something to eat with a nice cup of coffee.

Despite the disappointing forecasts proven to be somewhat accurate, owners not only from Vennesla but all over Southern Norway, decided to pay a little visit.

A beautiful Porsche 911, and an interesting looking Mazda RX3 Coupe seemed to be this meet's head-turners.

A fun 1969 Volvo 142 was standing alone, away from the crowd. The convenience of it definitely made people tempted to have a more thorough look.

There wasn't many bikes around, but this Norwegian Tempo Panter was an interesting spot.

At one point there was well over hundred cars scattered around, which was a lot more than expected. This lovely 1965 Volvo PV544 showed up rather late, but got a lot of love.

A Mercedes-benz 170 S from 1951 also made an appearance, and it was stunning inside and out.

The meet was not short of Beetles, and they were all as gorgeous as ever. A trip that at one point felt pointless, turned out to be worth it in the end.
