This weeks theme is classic.
The first thing that came to my mind was our friend Janne who came to the US from Finland and wanted to buy himself an old Cadillac. He would be able to restore this classic car and then take it back to Finland where he would be able to enter it in the American Classic Cars Competition over there. He found one while he was here and he spent many hours restoring his "classic baby". Here is an old Buick that belonged to another friend of ours.
During our time we lived there we went to a couple of car shows. For my husband and I, it was just cool to see the old cars. But for the Finns that we saw at the car shows, it was more than just cool. They were really impressed by them. This is because it's harder for them to get them over there anymore due to regulations required of a classic car. Here are a couple of pictures of the "classic" cars we saw while we were living in Finland.
We even saw some classic foreign model cars (these were of more interest to my husband and I then the American ones).
We also saw some classic tractors (who knew people actually cared enough about tractors to put them in a car show).
And some classic steam engines.
So there you have it, many examples of classic machinery. Hope you liked it.
