Vintage Photo Galleries - Finnish Museums Online

While I was recovering from flu and killing time by random surfing, found the Finnish Museums online website. One of the participating museums is Mobilia the Finnish "road and automotive" museum, so there is some interesting content for the average gearhead. Take a look at the contents by searching; http://suomenmuseotonline.fi/en#tabs-1.

First 10 officially imported VW Beetles in Helsinki 1950.

Driving school taking a delivery of brand new Beetles in early 70's.

Eläintarhan ajot, the "kind of a grand prix" of Helsinki, organized until early 60's when speeds became too high for road race. Here's a herd of Swedish 356As in 1958.
