Wheels & Wings Varberg 2011. Ref. 1
Chrysler which during a long time has been under a constant crisis, has during 2000 produced a series of very handsome car models. This is one, although as I have noticed, got some bad construction solutions. One is that battery is placed on left side under the inner fender cover and can only been reached when front wheel and inner cover are demounted.

On the "salesman street" this is an imported car from Chrysler concern. It has surely been parked on a large collecting yard in USA. Under the hood it is usually very bad, mostly by time. Here they try to start it for demonstration.

I am sure that police somewhere during the years after 1947 where equipped with this type of Chevrolet. The word Highway was not yet invented. This car is trimmed, lowered and of course there is cool to drive such a car in Sweden today. Idag säkert inte så mycket orginal kvar under huven.

This by the Swedeish owner special build car with V6 engine, must be used only as an exhibition car. There is good to start but only for demonstration. Much using may destroy the engine room. They have started to build with a Dodge 1951.

The engine room was so interesting that I offered a photo. I don't think that the engien ever has been started and the car is only used for exhibitions.

My dream car from 1947 is Buick Roadmaster. This is a Sedanette. A marvelous design which Buick always succeeded to do during all years. I tried during many years to get my father to buy a Buick, but not until 1962 he came home with a Buick Special V8 with al. V8 engine. The shown car is wonderful painted.

The most exclusive Cadillac model from 1939. This model was also sold with V16 engine, but this has the cheaper L-Head V-8. This car is even more exclusive than King Gustaf V's car at Sparreholm museum.

Opel Olympia 1952. With this type Opel started it's great time in Sweden after the war.

Lincoln Continental is the car with the most large engine hood. Note also the distance from front wheel to front edge. I had just this model for several years. The car has servo steering making it very easy to handle, but also several turns on the steering wheel and it was also under powered with only 200 ps in spite of a large V8. This was because of regulations beginning in 1970. One tell tale was that a diamant was in the center of the oval window.

Info about the Lincoln on the former picture. I think that this is a 1975 model.

2 Cadillac Biarritz from 1958. The model was only built in 400 copies. The car is a development from the 1957 Elodrado Brougham which had a curious roof styling. Saw one in Dalarna for many years ago. By some reason all electrical cables were cut. Exeptionally expensive car.

Driver's place.

DeSoto 1947 Coupé Fluid Drive. It had a semi atutomatic gearbox mainly for the overdrive. But gearing could be done without pressing coupling pedal. The drive was also over a turbine just as a normal automatic gearbox. I remember when living in Grums 1948. The taxi driver Niklasson had one sedan model with this gearbox.

I am not sure but it may be an Essex.

Dampfer construction in this time often was a so called knee-joint dampfer. Most well known was Ford. They often suffered of leaking oil after som years. The connection to the front beam is missing.

The audience looking at competition for peoples choice. This place was where visitors always had as meeting place. The bad thing, it was always long way to go on the airfield.

An old Fargo which was used for some special transportations.
Wheels & Wings Varberg 2011. Ref. 1
