Since I was a kid I have had a great fascination for driving. Despite the fact that I easily get car sick, I have a very romantic relationship to the road. Every holiday growing up, we would pack the car and drive around Norway, always at night time (less traffic and the kids are sleepy). Also, when I was a young teenager, there wasn`t much to do in my village. Many of my summer days would be spent hanging out at the local gas station and checking out all the cars coming through. I would learn a lot about cars this way, and I even ended up subscribing for a car magazine. I was looking forward to 8th grade because then you could pick a subject where you could learn to fix cars. Our principal was a car fanatic and he loved taking pupils out to this garage at school to learn the ways of the engine and so on. But when it was my turn, they closed down the school and moved it to another village, where cars was less interesting and volleyball and the German language was everything.
I managed to get my drivers license and I have been borrowing and renting cars ever since. But this year I realized that I have worked so hard that I could buy a car and that`s what I did. It is not a car for the everyday, it is the dreamy car, the car for adventure and exploration. I named her Gullet (Goldie) because in the light of the sunset she is shining like gold. I will present her soon enough, but this is a nice shot that I did from my dashboard when I was driving up the west coast, when the days were more dark than they are bright.
