Three Cool Rides

Ford 31 Roadster Replica

Cool trike of the Day

1931 A Ford

Are you like me, will you wave down an interesting looking car or motorcycle if you happen to see one? I guess probably not. But that's what I do. Here are three cool rides that I have documented this summer. The first photo is a Ford Roadster replica. It is registered as an amateur built vehicle. The owner, Lasse, who I met at a filling station in Jordbro the other day, bought the car last year from one of his friends, and it was the friend who built the car. The second photo shows Bengt on his Rewaco trike. I met him in Tungelsta, he is a friend of The Biker . If you want a trike like this one, be ready to pay around 350 000 SEK. The third and last photo is an A Ford from 1931. I spotted that one on a recent visit to Vendelsö. And as you can see the owner and his passenger smiled for the camera when I told them to do just that.

Reminds me of Southern California in the 1950s. Great fun! I think I like that second one the best. But Lois Anne would probably disagree and tell me I liked the first one the best and she'd probably be right!

I love the grills on those old cars.

I'm a car guy, so that third one gets my vote. They are all great though. Good for you for taking the time to stop them.

superbe, avec une préférence pour la troisième.
haughtiness, with a priority for the third.

Fantastic! Not quite sure for which one I'd go, should I have to choose. Maybe the trike.

Here is easier to be cut down by hundreds of unintersting scooters, speeding away in any direction.
I would be happy for a month if I could see any one of these wonderful rides.
You have a gold mine there, and a gift with people. Wonderful images, my favorite is the trike.

Love the two Fords - and fantastic colours. What happened to any colour you like as long as it's black?

Congratulations Allison on being Steffe Meister's 100th follower! You have NOOOO idea what an honor and privilege that is! He's world famous you know!

Allison said...

Oh, I know dat! I think he's almost as famous as Jacob, isn't he?

Leif Hagen said...

Well, Steffe IS famous but not as famous as Jacob from "The Outskirts."

Allison said...

It appears to me that Jacob has been around a LOT longer than Steffe.

Leif Hagen said...

Yes, in many ways. But Steffe has been around the block a few times, too. Especially to chase RED haired girls with his camera. What a line!

Allison said...

Red haired girls, huh? I guess I need to make an appointment with my hair dresser!

Leif Hagen said...
