Last Saturday me and my buddy Michael went down to Malmby Fairground, located 1 hour from Stockholm city or something, as always a bad ass event with a huge amount of kick ass cars. BUT! it was hot, soooo damn hot i burned my neck and my head baaaad. i was thinking of filming the hole thing but it was to hot so pictures will have to do.
A nice little video from Fifth Gear about the worlds biggest American car meet, Power Big Meet in Västerås Sweden.
This years Power Big Meet Date is 4-6 July
For some reason i found two readers ride emails in the spam folder today.
The first one was from Blake Weddington, and as soon as i started to flip to the pictures i saw something really cool that i liked, but it wasn’t his Ford F100, although i love the ride and have a lot of love for early/mid 60’s F100/trucks like the American Restoration episode i wrote about a couple of months ago. NO! it was the gray bicycle standing on the bed. Blake if could, i would let you build one for me. 🙂
The bikes and of course the truck looks awesome.
I let Blake tell the story in his own words.
“My name is Blake Weddington. I live in los angeles california and bought this truck stock in Feb 2012. I found it on a farm in dinuba california and shipped it back to los angeles. it now has new interior, independant front suspension power steering and disc brakes rear step notch and parallel 4 link. air bagged all the way around. cheap wooden bed. i built. also, I built the motor bike in the bed of the truck and its a lowrider built off a felt frame chopped and lowered. Great site
Thanks for sharing your ride Blake.
Well yesterday i watched American Restoration the buck wild episode, and then it struck me. The world is not fair. Tyler wanted a truck project so him and his dad Rick went to the seller and took a look.
The car was a 1965 Ford F100 shortbed SUPAAA SLAMED with full Airride suspension and 4 link in the back. It look fuckin amazing.
If this car was for sale here in Sweden it would cost somewhere beetween 11000 to 16000 DOLLARS. This badass was for sale for 2500 dollars thats NOTING!!!!!
Now i wanna MOVE!
And of course Rick went behind his son’s back and bought it, and surprised him with it.
I want one to 😦
Found these to pictures over at Mind Of Macias. I wish more people could do this.
YEPP!! Thats just what it is.

Me and a couple of buddies went up to a town called Rättvik, every year the have the Classic Car Week, thousands of cars in a small town for a hole week, i have got my self a new job so after the day ended we took a 2 hour roadtrip up to Rättvik, or rather 1,5 hour and 30 minutes finding a god damn parking spot, the hole town is overcrowded and the parking spots sucks. ohh well we stayed for 3-4 hours just enjoying the super sweet evening sun and looking on cars.
And here are some pics of some of the rides, i missed alot because every
damn idiot walking in front of me 😦
