    Those Swede guys really make the best outta their seasons. They build great cars in the cold and dark, and then they break 'em under the midnight sun. Pissah! as we say out here in Boston.

    What! No air-conditioned box trailers and power parking? Where's the megabuck builder's cars?
    Great stuff guys, this is where the rod and custom game should be, we need much more of the same.

    Nice pics! It's like every car I see that's from Sweden is super-traditional. It looks like the roots of hot rodding over there.

    OK, I have a question. We have been seeing these cool event threads on the HAMB for years. Who started these runs in Scandanavian gravel pits and why? Free venue? Place to get rowdy and not hassled?

    I was wondering about this too. They always seem to include a nice hillclimb and plenty of flat turns. And no trees to run into:eek:

    Tman, I really don’t know who started this gravel pits events over here but there is a long and old tradition of rally driving here in Scandinavia and to mix that with some heavy beer drinking, good music, nice people and a bunch of old American iron it makes the whole thing complete. You should try it in the states too it’s very fun.

    Great pics! I love it that people over there aren't afraid to let it all hang out in the gravel. Like another poster suggested, certain clubs in the US would really get their panties in a bunch if they saw these pics. I say let 'em rip! You Swedes are crazy! Maybe thats where I got my craziness from, its an ancestral thing. lol
