A Social Distance Get-together.

To show off, to get inspired and meet friends. Deep in our hearts that's what we want to do when the sun is shining and the grass is green. We want to get acknowledged while celebrating others and having fun simultaneously.That's all. Races, shows and meets normally offer a way out of the workshop and a sun tan moment for garage rats. But during the pandemic occasions are few and a need is building up.

In addition, the car and bike community are as divided as the rest of the society. Rich and Poor. Original and Modified. Old and young. Street Racers and Law abiding citizens. Tail fins and tailor made. Normally these communities does not meet. But Corona changed things. Enemies becomes friends. Sub groups that never would meet are getting closer and a deeper understanding is reached.

And nope. This is not a useless statement from UN. This is the positive consequence of social starvation. This is what happens when nothing is arranged. When all kinds of car and bike guys and gals in Gothenburg decide to go to the same place every Wednesday evening without Flyers and Facebook.

Volvo 242 with N3T engine (6 Cyl Volvo all aluminum engine) and a lot of Power.
Bentley Racer
Bagged. Spoke Wheels. Eldorado. Cadillac Eldorado.
American Graffiti. Chicken coop in flames.
Aston Martin DB4
C5, C6 and C7. Corvette's. All in need of Magnuson Superchargers.

Yeah, Carina and I took our Rocket for a ride too. It felt like a good idea to shake down the old Olds before daylight disappears and we move on to next step.
Keep on keeping on!
