    Getaway in Stockholm

    Stopped by one more VW dealer on the way to the airport. Only a mk8 GTE in the show room. Really wanted to see a MK7/7.5 CSS or TCR. It was cool the dealer had classic VWs in their showroom. I also wish we had the 5 door RS3 in NA. Love that car.

    Getaway in Stockholm

    Back in Stockholm for the weekend. Went to the Vasa Museum this morning. Super interesting and photos don’t do it justice. This thing is huge! Such an awesome city. The first photo is in Galma Stan (old town) and is probably the most photographed place in the city. The Hairy Pig - best...

    Getaway in Stockholm

    Finally after numerous trips to VW dealers in Scandinavia, a lapiz blue MK8 Golf R. So much better in person. The mk7 profile looks better but man is this car sexy. The California camper van is badass, too!

    Getaway in Stockholm

    Do the A-tractors have speed limiters on them? When I work in Finland I see a lot of the kids driving the really small cars that are speed limited. From my experience drivers are very respectful in Sweden so far and do not tailgate or speed very often. The highways are very well maintained and...

    Getaway in Stockholm

    So I saw two of theses 740 Volvo truck conversion today. I should of got a shot of the diamond plated “fish box” in the bed. I was trying to keep the occupants out of the photo. My co driver got some photos of this GTE and I didn’t notice until looking close at the photos but that looks like an...

    Getaway in Stockholm

    Thanks for all the advice on what to see and where to go. We made it to Västervik today with a visit in route to an old mine shaft. I was claustrophobic as hell as a child but I managed this without feeling overwhelmed. Västervik is a beautiful old town. I walked until it got dark and had the...

    Getaway in Stockholm

    My wife would disagree. Ah ok. The Cadiz through me off. Germany is on my list one day as that is where my fathers family hails from. While walking last night we came across This old street which reminds me of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter. I wish I had a real camera here with me. I am...

    Getaway in Stockholm

    1961 Triumph TR3

    I worked at a shop 20 years ago in Illinois that specialized in British vehicles. I still have the MG badge on my work bench from the first car I was tasked with dismantling for parts. I like the TR3 as well as the MGA. Great lines on those cars. We also had a Sunbeam Tiger roll through the...

    Always wanted to read these as I used to play the hell out of that game on PC when I was a kid.
