    Thanks. Interesting. A couple look like cars that I owned years ago. I guess that is possible.

      Great show? Anyone count all the Studebakers? Has Sweden always been left hand drive like the U. S? BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        Bob;
        Sweden changed from right hand drive to left hand about in 1967. When I was there; they had changed the signs; if I recall correctly were still driving on the Right. We left the car in Copenhagen. and took the Hydro Foil to Malmo Sweden.

          Nice! I'm guessing this followed the "motor lodge" photo posted yesterday?

            What a great turnout of Swedish cars. Now I want to know, how can I get one of those Studebakerklubben t-shirts?

              Join the club & buy a T-shirt...
              & we've always had plenty US cars in Sweden & especially Studebakers was always saved, even the really rough rockers treated Studebakers better than most other US cars, a bit like Cadillac & Imperial.
              & yes; I just posted "a wee look".

                The Swedish cars has always beeing LH-drive cars. But with the buses it was different they was RH-drive until 1967 when we changed from driving at the left side of the road to driving on the right side. And yes there was a lot of signs to change.

                  There was 32 Studebakers, with 2 cars from our friends in Norway attending this event. Not bad for a country with around 500 registered cars.
