    Hello folks.

    I'm proud to make this event coverage for you guys. Last weekend we had this huge show in Helsinki called the X-treme car show and this time (and in the future) it was combined with Petrol Circus show for modified motorcycles.

    So far the biggest (and best IMO) show in the entire history of Finland!

    Thank you for all our Swedish friends who came and brought some fabulous cars to see. And special thanks go to Norway, Russia, Estonia.

    And of course thanks to John D'Agostino and Sabina Kelley. The show wouldn't be the same without You! Hope you had good time and we will see you guys again.

    I personally appreaciate D'Agostino's favourite Custom Car award higher than any other trophies given in the show. This time it went to Jaska Velin's fantastic Lincoln -56. D'Agostino was so amazed of high quality of show cars that he decided to pick two more winners as well.

    This time the true winner of the show was "THE JUXTAPOD"! 60's show rod from Sweden. Such an amazing car! Hope the owner will make a show tour in US some day.

    Thanks again. And now to the photos, enjoy.

    Yeah,it was a really great show.There was a lot of good quality rides and it was a success for my fellow clubmates too: 3rd prize in the chopper class and 2nd & 3rd prizes in the rat bike class.
    I think FHRA has lot to do,if they want to make same quality show than this was.
