Greger Strøm Special No. 2 of Trondheim, Norway. Greger's second Nordic Special Racer was built in 1938, while Greger was working at Gaden & Larsen in Trondheim. He raced it once at Leangbanen in 1938. The race at Leangen started good for Greger, but with around 100 metres left to the finish line, the throttle linkage broke, and he lost the race. It was a frustrating situation for Greger who was in it for the win. As with his first car, the Greger Strøm Special No. 2 was also parted after the race. The engine was sold, but Greger never got his money. Borrowed parts were returned, and the rest of the car was left rotting away. Nobody knows what became of the remaining parts of this race car.
