Rat Rides With a Difference

Opel Kapitän Your Typical Raggare Cadillac De Ville Mercedes 190
These old rat rides are known as råttsoffor, (rat couches), or pilsnerbilar (beer rides), in Swedish. They are very popular with the younger raggare, (greasers), and with photographers. There's always a few contests at this meet. One category is for best Rat Ride. These were some of my favorites in that category.

There is a bit of ramrod culture here but nothing like you have over there!

They look like they've passed their best before date.

Those cars look like they're ready for retirement.

Wow. Looks like the cars came directly from the junk yard.

It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't remember when each one of these car models came out.
