A Very Lucky Guy

A Very Lucky Guy

Custom Paint Job

Dead Man Found In Boot

Ford Crown Victoria


This is Rune Thorsell from Österledinge in Norrtälje. He was at the Retrorun meet with his 1956 Ford Crown Victoria. A beautiful car with a few interesting and weird details as you can see! Rune has always been interested in motors and back home he has a Indian trike that he has been working on for eleven years! The Ford is worth around 400 000 SEK and he has no plans to sell it, ever. The very cool custom paint job was made by the well known artist Daniel Fahlström. The cars that you see painted here are a 1957 Buick that belongs to Rune's daughter, and a 1954 Chevy that belongs to Rune's best friend Leffe. Pretty cool. Rune was an interesting guy to talk with and he told me a cool story. A few years ago he bought a lottery ticket to the Bingolotto TV show and won a chance to appear on the show. And a week later he spun a wheel of fortune and won 2,2 Million SEK. Not bad.

That is a very realistic looking hand. Creepy but fun. I particularly like your portrait of him.

The cars look really great and its obvious Rune puts in a lot of hard work on his cars. The paint job looks great. I wonder if the police ever pull him over after seeing the hand sticking out of the trunk? Another great portrait Steffe.

Very lucky guy, creative and funny. The car is wonderful in evey detail: this is a real joy for a photographer, and you obviously did well. Great find and great images.

Hopefully he already has a good investment advisor! I'm sure quite a few people have seen that hand and have reached for their cell phones to call the police!
