Went to a pretty big (for my area) car show today (in Port Coquitlam BC). Lots of cars (over 500 (but I heard 900 so who know)). Range of ages and races in the crowd. All car lovers so who cares.

One 55-61 Forward Look car, a 1956 Canadian Custom Royal sedan (with the 303 Plymouth engine)).

A couple of older (1938/39 Dodges and Plymouths).

Many GM and Fords some Mopars.

Just when I thought I had seen all the variations of air cleaners for the '55-'56 cars, here comes another. I've never seen a lid that was rounded up like that one. Was that a Canadian thing?

That's a very nice Orange and White 1959 De Soto. That would be the car for me. No doubt there is a fascinating story of how the Swede had a rust bucket (a diamond in the rough) shipped over to Sweden and, with his old world skills, turned it back into a diamond again. It's amazing what the Swedes can do with a FWL car.

When visiting years ago, I asked Arne, "Why finned American cars ?". He seemed to
not understand the question, so I asked "Why not Volvos ?". His response was priceless
and totally changed the way I see old cars ....

First, he wrinkled up his face and made some disparaging comment like "Why don't YOU
restore old Volvos ?", implying "We do finned American cars for the same reason you do,
because Volvos suck !"

But the real eye opener was the reason behind "Why do it at all ?" .... which (and I para-
phrase here), "We have 8 months of winter in Sweden and 4 months of nice weather ... what
better way to spend your time during those cold, snowed-in winter months than holed up in
a nice shop, welding and painting and making an old car nice, so that when summer rolls
around again, you can go driving around and enjoy it ? !!!"

I found that answer to be quite profound, and immediately reset my thinking to build a
really nice shop to hole up in during our all-too-long and cold winters.
