Jack, have you decided on the date you will be arriving to Finland? I'm trying to make one thing happen, but it might be a bit too early for you, let me know.

Projected dates

Hi,

This is all projected but here goes.

Aug 2-5 Oslo getting car off boat, visits etc
Aug 5-6 western Norway
Aug 6-9 heading to Trondheim
Aug 9-11 heading to North Pole Zip corvettes has on back order a new device so I can drive on water

Aug 11 13 heading South Finland for reindeer boots and Helsinki

Aug 13 -15 recovering from Vodka headache and Sweden

Does that sound right.......I really do not know how fast or far I can drive from Oslo to Helsinki. It is about 2,000 miles , I hope to avoid a lot of slow tourists....so help on back roads ? Are there any back roads, or is there only one road

I will begin to plot the route next month....busy now getting my life in order so I can be gone for 2-3 months

I can't wait......very excited.....working hard on the video part.....

Thanks for the concern.......so many things to get in order

Jack

So you are in Finland at the same time as our Corvette Meet XIX (Aug 10-12) in Himos, Jämsä?

You must either speed up or slow down your speed,I´ll be in VetteMeeting in Himos during 10-12.8,If you want your Laplandboots,I can take them with me to Meeting and we`ll meet there or I´ll come back up north at sunday 12.8 ,and I´ll meet you somewhere during the ride to Rovaniemi.I think that You dont have to use back roads.Traffic is pretty slow anywhere in finland(compared to US),so I think that you´ll have no problems with traffic.

I am looking for a 1962 Corvette

Hello All,

I hope spring is on the way. I belong to the US forum NCRS and a fellow named John owns a 1962 Corvette. He posted this to me:

Jack, enjoy your adventures. Not everybody has a chance to do what you are doing.

If you have a chance while in Finland, try to get in touch with the owner of the white 62 that was exported to Finland.

It is car #00015. Since mine is #00029 I would like to get in touch with the owner of #15 to compare notes.

Thanks in advance.


If you know of this 1962 Corvette. # 00015 please let me know and I will past the information to John in USA

Jack

Smile Plans to come to Finland

Hello to all,

Plans for my trip are coming along. I have included the UK in my trip. I will take a ferry across the English channel from France , drive and meet fellow Corvette owners in UK, and put the car on a boat for the US from the western coast of England.

It should be exciting to drive on the left side of the road, really exciting

How is the weather ? I have been looking at the web cam from Nordkapp and have not seen the sun yet....much clouds.....

In August, what will the weather be like on my road south to Finland.....

Should I really make sure my weatherstrip works to keep the rain out.

I have installed a third latch on my 66....it has stopped all the leaks from the bow in the middle of the windshield...I thought of it before my 48 state trip.....I put up with water for 40 years before..

Here are some pictures of how it did it. If you have a c1 or c2 it works great. GM put in a third latch starting in 1968







You can get the latch for about $14 from McMaster-Car online

Jack

Jack,

Weather should be fairly nice in August. Depends a lot on the wind. If it's from the east we'll get really nice and warm weather from Russia (along with who know what). And it's it's from the west there are usually some rain coming from the Atlantic over Norway and Sweden.

Might be some thunder, but generally ok. And if you are here during the Corvette meeting (as it seems) we have order in for nice weather in any case,

This weekend should be nice and good weather for convertible cruising.

Mika

Jack,

One good place to check the Nordic weather is
http://www.foreca.com/Finland/Helsinki?lang=en

Just type the name of the place and you'll get the forecast for NeXT few days.

Temperatures in celcius.
