Thanks Joakim!
Continues with some more photos from our trip ...
We begin with New Mexico and Albuquerque. Here was one of the highlights, Unsers racing museum. Go there if you have not already done so!
We drove on to Roswell, exciting place! and then through a rainy Texas.

A man must do what he has to Jan - I fully understand that sometimes one can not just chose. I'm working on a '57 Chebby now (I might get some heat for this )

My God

I fix lots of makes and models, dont be hard on yourselves

I would be happy to see the work on both cars, but it will spark the forwardlook only debate again, but a new thread in the sewer would be ok, wouldnt it?

Here are a few final pictures from our trip. Highlights in sunny Florida was Don Garlits Museum, Daytona Beach and, of course, Key West!
Already longing to next US road trip holiday!

Here at home winter is now slowly disappearing even if there is snow mixed rain outside my window right now ...

Anything news at Jan's? He's an astonishing excellent Master of sheet metal and restoring marvellous cars. I like the photo documentation of the progress of the white 300 F - it's so similar to my Letter - except that my Letter is a coupé or two door hardtop.

 

Keep on going and good luck!

A little update from the shop. Work on the Custom Fxxx goes ahead as planned. Summer came at last,
which means quality time in the Fireflite. There was also a trip to Stockholm, first a nice visit to Milestone Classics and then Leif Ivan's incredible collection of Classics,
http://worldofclassics.se/
Finally, an exciting container arrived the other day with yet another project, more about it in the future, we now Look Forward to the Power Big Meet! See You!

Here are some pictures from the Power Big Meet.
There was, as usual, several nice lookers on the show field, impossible to upload all here.
Congratulations to Arne who showed his recent restoration, a wonderful 58 Adventurer. Beat it if you can!
The Imperial won the cruising award, voted by the giant crowd! Big!
We were also lucky with the weather, it has been basically raining every day before and after, a disaster summer in Sweden so far....

Enjoy!

Yes, the weather in Rättvik was not typical summer weather.
But it was quite nice to meet you in person, Magnus

It has been rainy and chilly weather in all Skandinavia this summer. My NY convertible has been in garage since May I last used it! There has been showers almost every day. I have used my s**tty rat rod Dodge truck and a Chevy as a hobby car Here in east we usually have gotten hot weather fronts from Siberia in summer time but Putin has done something to prevent that We get only rains from south west (from EU). But isnt that we got what we ordered?

Hey all! Summer finally came in August, lovely! Now, in early September, everything is as usual, pouring rain!

This post will remind that the WPC club's autumn meeting is held in Malung this weekend.

Unfortunately I can not attend but wish all a nice visit!

Another very interesting creation is this which will be unveiled at the carshow in Lahti coming weekend.
Built by our friend Zacke. Attracts attention, guaranteed!
Will be back with more pictures when the car is introduced.

Of course the car drew much attention at this weekend's show where it had the good company of another creation influenced by Mercury ....

The rod is working and running!
Now remains a proper paintwork....
