Just got back from Sweden visiting the Power Big Meet show for US cars, the biggest of its kind in Europe... their 40th anniversary. This thing was MASSIVE, held at an airfield.

You love pics, here they are in full random glory. Here's the entrance and the swap:

So then a plane decided to buzz us as we walked the runway... and a lady showed me her "double dog."

OUTSTANDING SHOW! Thank you Vettebuyer6369! What a great cross section of American wheels. They sure do appreciate our past.

Thanks again for the great pics!

I was in Sweden two summers ago and could not believe how many classic American cars were out cruising. Clearly a lot of passion for muscle cars of the 60's and 70's. Thanks for sharing.

So then, they've got an airstrip surrounded by farm houses and what looks to be a church (upper right of pic w/big block c3 vert, cool sidepipes) that is occasionally used for very cool car shows (wonder what other shows), don't ya know they got their priorities strait. Thank you for the very nice pics, hope it was as much fun as it looks!

Awesome photos and cars!

Loved that '57 Chevy with the lady painted under the hood! The handcuffs were a bit much, tho...

Second prize goes to the C4 with six round amber lights at the rear!

Thanks for sharing!
