Finland- Vintage car


This postcard is from Paulina in Finland. I just received it this morning and I was so glad to have this one since I really like vintage classic cars. She said her favorite classic car is volvo called "Saint" in the famous TV-series character Rode. Someone closest to her heart has an old Dodge Challenger from 1971 also.She said that when she was a child her dad has a Lada, a Russian car from 70's. Having such collections of old classic cars is a cool feeling.
