Swedish Street Rod Nationals was held at the western park High Chaparral, that is situated in the "county" Smaland in the southern parts of sweden. This year the Nationals also was an European Nationals, so there was a lot of rodder friends from other parts of europe to. This was the second time for the Euro nats and i leave it to my euro rodders to judge it (success or not). This year I didn't have so far to go for the Nats but there was this other problem, we had to be back on sunday 10:00 a clock because my first grandson was to be christened. More about that later on.

  This truck is one of the best looking trucks i know about. And keeping it in primer is a good move.  It's going to take about 5 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture.

This Roadster was brought over to the states to attend the 49 Oakland roadster show. Where it was given an award by Bruce Meyer. Tommy told me it was a great trip,and the yanks where surprised that we had such good rods in sweden..   
  I know this is not a great shot but my brain must have slipped because i didn't take any decent pics of Tommys car (please forgive me Tommy)  It's going to take about 5 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture.

  This is one that will look A ok when ready. The owner put it together just to be able to join the meeting.  It's going to take about 5 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture.  
  It's going to take about 6 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture. The seat cushioning seams a bit on the thin side? But the car had potential to be a real nice Roadster when ready. By the way the body is a Gibbon Glassfibre unit.   
  This was a steel car and slammed, nostalgia mexican low rider "bomb" type.  It's going to take about 4 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture.

  Sven Sandberg showed up with his copy of the Glowing Coupe. Sven built the original a long time ago. And has now built a copy of the car again. The original body is owned by a guy in Linköping and its under restoration.So i guess we will have two Glowing Coupes sometime. And that is maybe not so bad since its a really great looking rod.  It's going to take about 6 sec @ 56Kbps to load this picture.
