Default swedish Squarebird-Thunderbird gathering camp

Last weekend, the Swedish Squarebird-Thunderbird 58-66 club arranged the annual "Weekend Camping BBQ & stuff".
I am lucky to live in an area where the owners of these cars are quite active in arranging meetings and small adventures. There are cars all over Sweden, but this country is quite big in size, even if we only are nearly as many here as in the state of Michigan, making travelling quite expensive, if you live far from the event. Please have in mind that gas is twice as expensive as in USA.
But that didnīt stop one gentleman, who drove nearly 600 km ( approx 373 miles ) one way to attend.
The whole thig started on Friday and the last people to leave, did that on Sunday. I was there over Saturday and drove home in the night. Just before I arrived, I took the 10 minute extra turn to a small village where they have an old petrol station next to the modern one. It was a GREAT day with a lot of cars, nice people, funny silly games and BBQ. We ended up with a "Rock & Roll concert" by a new young talanted artist, named Sixten. He did Elvis, Jonny Cash songs and asked us if we where familiar with Hank Williams as well ? The audience was between 30 and 70. He is 10 , and was awesome with his guitar. What a guy! Check this video out from "Sweden got talant": http://www.gazotube.com/jBIxRZFPWuw.html
You have to excuse me as most pictures was over exposed by some reason. I tryed to help them a bit by the computers "photo-adjust" program.
Please enjoy.

Hi Anders

Great post, thanks so much for the photos. Looks like an awesome event, these one-make weekends are always impressive. Do participants stay on site, camping etc (love the Tbird and caravan pic), or is there accomodation nearby? For a small population sweden must have a large number of classic cars and hot rods.

Great stuff Anders - would love to have been there! We never see that many T-birds at once in NZ.


What did I do? - I took the valve covers off the 429 in my '55 F100 to re-paint them gold ('poor-mans Moroso covers') and I'm now looking for new reusable gaskets for them, just had the headers and mufflers HPC heat coated and fitting them back on.

Making a 'new-improved' drive-belt cover for my H-D Dynaglide too at the moment - too many large belt-wrecking stones on NZ roads.

And the '66 'bird needs a good grooming - took it to Whitestone Rodders mid-year party in the pouuring rain and haven't washed it yet.

Default Saturday...

We went to a wedding at a local Country Club in Johnson City, NY. This building was once owned by IBM and was the home of T.J. Watson, founder of IBM. We live across the river from the town where IBM was born. When I was young, everyone worked at IBM or Endicott-Johnson Shoe factories. Now they're both pretty much gone from this area. Lots of history here tho...
