Norwegian classic-car group nears the end of its trip

The group of Norwegians who are driving pre-1966 automobiles the entire length of Route 66 is nearing the end of its trip, reports the Big Bear Grizzly of Big Bear, Calif.

The group encountered mechanical problems, difficulty acquiring insurance, and dealt with a hit-and-run in Chicago. But they had a lot of fun, too.

“We’ve had very, very good reception,” said Jon Grasto of Sarpsborg, Norway. “We got the thumbs up from truck drivers and especially elderly people. Our cars are a rembrance of a very nice time, a very nice period in America.”
