Since ClassicRoad.com is an international conglomerate we have highly trained reporters on all sides of the globe. World Famous Hard Boiled Reporter Lazze Åström in Sweden risks his life to get us the best shots for us. Here is what he found during an infiltration of a car meet in Linköping, Sweden:
The mandatory 1957 Chevrolet that has to be at all car meets. This is a fine example but I feel the Chrysler convertible in the background is more exciting as long as the owner gets rid of those horrible Euro wheels.
Trailer hitch tells us that the owner is probably hauling a vintage caravan around when it’s time for the mandatory Swedish four or five weeks vacation. Why do I live in America??
More ZZ Top: 1933? or ’34 Fjord Coupe Street Rod
1938 or ’39 Ford truck. Very cool. Note the two blonde hot chicks next to the truck…that’s how all Swedish ladies look like. We do NOT feel sorry for Swedish men! Remind me again…why do I live in America??
Since we showed a ’57 Chebby we better show a ’55 as well. This one is tasteful with the American style wheel and small whitewalls.
More Chevrolets: 1958 Impala Sport Coupe
1930-1931 Ford Model A Hot Rod. Well done.
Too low for your Humble Editor’s taste but hey, this is America…ahem, Sweden, land of choices!
My Mustang Fastback is faster that your Mustang…bla, bla, bla…
What is cool with this Chevelle? Well, for one, it is in perfect condition. The other cool part is that it is NOT a bright red Super Sport with a 396 4 speed. It is probably sporting a 307 with a Powerglide. Nice!
Ford Mustang…like you didn’t know that!
1959 Ford Convertible.
Since we are in Sweden we best check out some Swedish cars:
Yeah, it’s a bit rusty in the rockers and doors but it does have the mandatory roof rack and fender mirrors. I am sure it will be restored at some point.
Jensen built Volvo P1800. Check out the older solid rims that has been widened but they kept the old hub caps. We like.
One of the best looking Volvos of all time: Volvo Amazon. Assuming it is stock this would be a 1969 or 1970 model based on the absence of the hood spear and drip rail chrome. Volvo deleted this as of the 1969 model. 46 Red 122 with Minilite or Minilite look-alike wheel. You can’t go wrong with this set up.
Abedeabedeahabedea…That’s all folk.
