Been messing around with British cars since I was 13, when my brother and I got a 63 TR4. That was in Virginia. The Frogeye came a year later, then the Land Rover and more than a hundred other cars. I have worked as a garage mechanic for 17 years, but now am a mechanical engineer at MAN B&W ship engines in Copenhagen.

The Land Rover

Posted on: Wednesday June 18, 2008


Back in 72 together with my brother we had bought a 1963 TR4. The girlfriend of the TR4 owner had a 1972 Land Rover 88, bright red. I loved the car. I had been looking since, until I found this one for sale. It belonged to the (just then ex) wife of an American diplomat stationed in French Congo, Brazzaville.

Alfa before See profile for after

A friend got this car and I towed it back to the garage for him. The garage is PF-Auto, connected with the Danish Technical University. We were both members there, but he didn't have time to repair all the rust on the car, so he parked it in storage for about a year. When my friend decided to move to Canada, he sold me the car for 3000 DKr. It would be another year before I could start on it. I kept it in another storage garage, this time one with lots of other Alfas there. When the t...
