Markets, parts, people, cars and coffee.

Viksta market

The Moke in good company of other classic vehicles.

The first first market of the year in our region, Viksta market 26 April, is also the first drive after winter for many owners of classic vehicles.

As I had the Cooper a bit dismantled I started up the Mini Moke and drove it in the fine weather to the market. The local Mini drivers were a bit unorganised this year so I drove there myself.

On the market I had a feeling that it was bigger than usual, many of the late arrivals couldn’t park their classics on the area meant for classics, they had to park beside everyday cars.

I strolled for several hours and met up with many of the usual visitors. Nice to chat with them, some had not been seen since last season. I didn’t find that many parts to buy. Lucky me, as the storage is full, I should have been here and sell things!

I found one nice model Mini on one stand

Except for the Moke I saw only two other Minis on site. :-(  Where were the other ones? Not ready for the season? I hope to see more on upcoming events!
