    I had a great opportunity to visit Sweden for 12 days during the Classic Car Week in 2019 it was a trip of a lifetime.
    Great cars and fantastic friendly people. It is definitely on my return list some day. Here is a picture I took of one of the coolest 32 roadsters over there Kenneth is the owner, I had the pleasure of being the passenger in this car for a day. Great video it placed me right back there again.
    Sweden has for sure a great car culture second to none I have experienced. IMG_4131.JPG

    Happy to see left hand steering, as you don't know with all these countries.

    well, we use the ''See ya later alligator'' here to. But translation is '' Vi ses senare alligator''
     
  19. I met Jimmy Sweden at a car show in Texas some years ago. I have a 32 cabriolet—he told me had a 32 cabriolet—-he is a friend of Bruce from Bruce’s Rod Shop in Spring. His video is GR8, can’t understand a “dadgum” word, but if most of those cars are his—-my goodness, what a gr8 looking stable of rods. I am jealous! You are a blessed man Jimmy—-CONGRATULATIONS!!! 622DA9E7-0C24-484F-A6A7-C3AB914B271E.jpeg

    Thanks for posting the video. Interesting stuff. Wish I could understand more than a few words here and there but after a margarita or two it made perfect sense.

    I started to watch that first video and I saw a tractor. What the heck? Then I saw you driving one of those damn import cars... “what am I watching?”.

    But then the rest of the video cleared it all up for me. Watched while snacking on pickled herring.

  26. I think it was Sweden that switched from right hand drive to left hand drive and there biggest problem was obtaining headlights as there's dimmed to the left.

    Here in Sweden we always have had the steringwheel on the left side but we was driving on the left side. In September 1967 we change to the right side and every body had to bye new headlights.
