Greger Strøm started his automotive career working as an apprentice at Nilsen & Robsahm in 1931. His dream was to become an aircraft mechanic, but that cost money. Money he didn’t have. Advertised as Norway’s most modern Ford repair shop, Nilsen & Robsahm was a race-friendly dealer where many of the racers in Oslo at the time worked or had worked. After four years of apprenticeship at Nilsen & Robsham, Greger went on to work for Lillestrøm Bilcentral, where this photo was taken. Photo from The Greger Strøm Collection.
