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!
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!
