Swedish Street Rod Nationals was held in the city of Östersund, and it's situated in the middle parts of Sweden. And since we live in a very long country, it was about 650 Km one way for me to travel. In Sweden we think that is a long way to go,  i think that's the reason only about 220 cars turned up, usually there is over 300 cars on the Nationals. Ok enough complaining I went to the Nationals together with my 16-year-old son. He took the opportunity to do some training on his driving skills, on the way to and from the meeting.

  And of course we got the mandatory rain shower But it only lasted for a mile or two.  It's going to take about 4 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture.

  Back home he had to mock everything up, and it looks like a Hot Rod. Sort of anyway, so now he is saving up for an engine and some paint.  It's going to take about 4 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture.
