Guestbook by Lpage


I take great pleasure in driving through Finland with my friend sEs in my old SkodaMobile, and studying abandoned and ancient vehicles, and pretending to be driving them. And telling their stories.



There are old abandoned vehicles lying around in the Finnish landscape. Sometimes in astonishing hidden collections in the woods; sometimes in amazing amounts on the yards of people; sometimes on scrap yards. And sometimes surprisingly as monuments or decorations.

Driving around Finland will eventually reveal wonderful abandoned old vehicles: tractors, railroad equipment, cars, trucks, helicopters, airplanes - you name it.
