25+ cars gather in Laitse for Youngtimer Camp 2022 | New
Event organizer Tõnu Korrol told ‘Aktuaalne kaamera’ that the fairground already had 300 cars at noon.
“The term youngtimer refers to a car that is not yet a classic. For us, this means a car that is at least 25 years old. It can also be slightly older and must be in good condition. The brand and country of origin are not important, whereas the car must have the potential to become an old timer, a true classic car all the way,” Korrol said.
Vehicle owners had the chance to see what other people with the same hobby were working on.
“Facebook suggested it to me the day before yesterday, and because it’s my daily summer driver, and I know there aren’t that many in Estonia, I decided to come and see this what else is going on in the car world in Estonia these days I have restored various vehicles, and it is fun to show your own car and see what others are doing,” said Rainis, owner of a 1991 Citroën XM.
A Scania rescue truck from Lapland from Hüüru volunteer rescuers bought at auction last year was also present.
“I’m sure ours is the only such truck in Estonia today. A rescue truck with a console crane and a rescue cage. You don’t often see the latter in the rest of the world either. We will have a special truck trailer for that in the fall, which is when we want to tie into something specific, like ground collapse rescue,” said Mati Leivategija, restaurateur and volunteer lifeguard of Hüüru.
