Heo---

Please be aware that my contact with you on this forum, as slight as it is, improves my life. You are highly worth knowing.

+1 on what Ken says.  Thanks for that (even if there were no hats)!!

Thank you guys for the kind words.

Well....Bill we went to the Countess boutique
the other day. It is situated in a "house" they built
for a widow countess to get rid of her from the nearby
castle. Just something "small" for her and her servants
and livestock and horses. Four houses in a square with
a portal  through to the inner yard. The owner allowed me to
drive in to the yard and take a picture



 where they sell hats, and other
accessories a countess needs. Like chandeliers





couches, ridingcrops :o, beds, pillows,some more
pillows, spurs, handbags furniture and such. My favourite shop beacuse
they got couches with a lot of pillows so i build myself a nest where i
hibernate while wife shop hats ;D and pillows ;D. And now and then have
to give my opinion about the collour on a pillow and if it match whatever,,
Eventhough i have told my interest in pillows equals my interest in saletax
on Dill

That certainly is a right nice pillow there.
What goes fast doesn't go fast long'
What goes fast takes your money with it.
So I'm slow & broke, what went wrong?

I hear you about needing a spot to hibernate!  But be careful - If you're not awake to give the right answer on the pillow color you'll be meeting the riding crop...

That looks like a really cool place.  Thanks Heo!

I went home friday morning, When i travel i try to chose backroads before the big main higways
that way you get to se more of the counbtryside.
Anyway i followed some small roads on a road map (you guys remember those?)
that was in the glovecompartment and ended up in a military exercise field ::)
I knew there had been in the past but was terminated, but obviously was retaken by the army
So there i was running with a lot, and i mean a lot of tanks when the Military police stoped me and asked
where i was going. I thanked the officer for protecting my country and told him i had no idea they where back
He let the tanks pass by and showed me a shortcut out of the area saluted me and sent me on my way
I went by and picked up a Daimler (Jaguar) frontend for the 36 Coupe, then i went to Stockholm to my friend Ollie.
He had made dinner so we ate and had a few beers.
Next day we went to his Garage,they are a bunch of guys that rents part of the parking garage under an
apartment building and and bought equpment like welders,lathe,mill,and such together

Ollies Garage neighbours -65 Dart




Ollies rear suspension mocked up



Front mockup



Darts new 8.2 inch Ford block, Ollie going to build for another garage neighbours 64 Falcon




A slightly modified Nova



I could have spent a long time taking photos in that garage but i had to continue my travel home.
Went by another friend in Uppsala that have a 46 ford coupe custom and a 30 tudor and a 61 olds 88
but camera was full so no pics from there.
Arrived home 10.00 at night mothers Mercedes performed well
used no oil,  averaged 19 mpg
