Why Hot Rodding and Hot Rods are forever.

It's about freedom, passion and punk attitude. 

No matter if you're a boxed in office clerk with career ambitions and urge to please or a blue collar with awkward attitude and limited ambition...at some point we all need to break free from our claustrophobic white walls or dirty dungeon and burst. Flat out.

If you want go fast without control for no particular reason there's no substitute.  

If you, on top of the above, happen to be the curious type, creative and somewhat artistic then you're probably a hot rodder of some kind. 

If you're wild at heart, you know what I mean. Hot rodding, Tuning. Many namnes for things we like.

New generations are growing up and they'll find their cars and bikes suitable for tuning and go fast adventures and companies like Salt Slush will be there to support with good stuff. Forever.
Old school hardcore two wheel example. 
Important part of contemporary Hot Rod life.

All play and no work makes Salt Slush a happy Team!

Work hard. Drive fast. Deliver. Essential as breathing. But sometime you need something else. I'm talking about Relaxing, Reflecting and Dreaming. After a busy summer and though autumn we were in need of the latter. Consequently, small group meet up at the Salt Slush garage to cook food, drink beer and just relax. No big deal, no major party, just a calm evening with friends surrounded by stuff we like. Team & Turbos,  Dreams & Drinks, Food & Flatheads. All Supercharged.
 
Magnus the Man.  
Candle holder with heritage. For the Nobel banquet to envy.
Kalle and Catrine.
Humans need oil too. We've enjoyed the last drops now Roger.
Ellen Percival.
The Percivals in our workshop.
Salt Slush Salmon. Homegrown dried chili, muscovado sugar, lime and more… 
Ardun short block in the limelight, longing for heads.
Karin caught in a CNC milling machine talk.
Not only Jameson and Walker joined our party. Magnuson was there too.
Supercharged as always.
Slighty out of focus. Männer, Frauen und Motoren.
Annika and Ragnar was there. Joined by Chevy. Chevy the Dog. 
Carina, Cina. The one and only.
Yes, it's me. Feeling fine.

We're at Essen Motor Show!

Killepitch, Glüwein, Altbier, Kölsch and Mölsch. All good stuff. But there are other things as well in Ruhr, Germany. We're talking about cars. Fast cars, Cool cars, Immaculate Cars, Priceless cars and fun stuff too.
 
Since we were familiar with all of the above and in need of some inspiration before the Christmas halabaloo begins, we took some time off and drove down to Mülheim and der Ruhr, in Germany. 10 hours after leaving Gothenburg, Sweden we could enjoy a German beer where German beers are best enjoyed.
We started to relax at Classic Remise in Düsseldorf. A welcoming place with character where amazing cars can be enjoyed while sipping the beverage of your likings. Some cars you can buy too...if you wallet is not too thin.. Love this Panamericana racer with Swedish background.
Are you in to cars from the Art Deco period? Does louvers get you exited? Enjoy this mind blowing  Horsch with a hood that goes on forever, while sipping an Espresso. 
Here's what it's all about. An old Locomotive workshop transformed to an peaceful place to worship cars and bikes and acknowledge motor history.
 
Essen motor Show. We've now moved from Mild to Wild. Young and old entusiast with a lot of hot rod spirit. From old Demolition racers...
...to a young German take on lowriders. Mercedes W123 can be cool too. 
And as usual, there's a before and after. Especially for some VW products in German. Seem like old VW don't die, they just go faster.
 
There's something special with Tractor pulling. It's a nice sport that make all other motorsport reasonable. Add another turbocharged Allison V12 to you contraption and be prepared for an epic engine failure while smiling. 
Last, but not least.
How about this modern Art Deco Delahaye, based on a Mercedes R107 (Mercedes SL).
If you lack decoration in your workshop/ garage there are solutions. We are not so keen on stuffed Zebras, but a polished turbine wheel of reasonable size could be suitable for our business.
