Monochromemonday - My love for old cars!
My passion for old cars!
Started when I was really young and we had a friend of the family that had alot of old cars.
He was really old and as a little girl I thought he was many 100 years old 😁 lol
He collected old cars and restored them, sold some but kept many that he loved.
One car that caught my heart looked exactly like this one in the picture.
I loved the old feeling and that we could sit across from each other, so I spended time smelling the leather and eating cookies in a car like this.
So when I visited Autoseum with my parents I had to capture this amazing wiew that brought back memories 😊 precious!
Isn't this just a beautiful wiew? 😍 They sure have such character!
For me all things with a history is interesting, and how things things were made back then and used... We can learn so much!
They sure knew how to ride in style back then 😊
Skoklosters Motor Museum was founded in 1963 by Rutger von Essen who was the last private owner at Skokloster castle.
After von Essen's death in 1977, Gunnar Wretner bought the museum, which after him was taken over by his son Thomas Wretner.
In 2007, Thomas Wretner decided to sell the collection.
It was bought by the businessmen Uno Levinsson, Torbjörn Wistrand and Håkan Mårtensson.
In June 2008, the Autoseum in Simrishamn was opened with the entire collection from Skoklosters Motor Museum intact except the engines that were sold further.
There are also vehicles from the Technical Museum, Nisse Nilsson Collection and some privately owned vehicles.
The Swedish Car Sports Exhibition contains 15 interesting racing cars.
The collection includes cars from Denmark, England, France, Sweden, Germany and the USA.
Among the oldest cars are a 1898 Voiturette from the Dansk Automobilefabrik and a model Type D Series B Voiturette 1898 from Renault. From the US comes a 1920s model Chrysler Locomobile. In the free area is a Saab 35 Dragon.
The Automuseum also had the so-called King's Curve car, a Cadillac V6 Imperial that in September 1946 ended up in a water-filled ditch on the Old Södertalje Road and gave the King's curve its name.
Together with Sparreholm's car museum, which has a similar Cadillac, both museums claimed that they owned the "right" King's Curve car.
In 2015, Automusem sold its copy to a private individual for SEK 325,000.
I wrote a post about my trip to Autoseum a while back and if you like to read, even another memory reveals itself... Lol
A car at the Autoseum that my dad actually was thinking of renting for my Graduation 😁 lol
If you want you can read about it then all you have to do is to 👉 click here
But this is the car I actually got for my Graduation, also from Autoseum but an older one and I loved it!
My dad thought I would prefer a car without roof, why he changed it to this one.
But I would NOT have said no to ride in the badass car my dad wanted... Lol
My dream car is a Ford Mustang 1966!
I always dreamed of having a Ford mustang, it was a dream at young age but still hasn't changed 😉
I love the beautiful shape and look on this model and even if the newer ones are gorgeous to... This just is my dream car 😁 lol
The first model of the Ford Mustang was launched in April 1964.
The strongest engine was initially a V8 of 260 cubic inches, but it was replaced during the model year by a larger V8 of 289 cubic inches. This 289 engine could be ordered with 2-port carburetor (190 hp) or as an option with 4-port carburetor of 210-225 hp, the sentences here separate.
289 with the 4-port carburetor went under the sales name "Challenger"
