Fascinating that among all the high-end metal there would be a place for a Model A Ford, albeit with special bodywork. Perhaps a family toy for the chauffeur's day off?

A fun piece, PHeymont! Thanks for sharing your excitement of this discovery. I must admit I thought you'd be much more likely to run into a collection of classic Volvos or Saabs in Stockholm.

Excellent pics PHeymont! I just love period "American Iron" great fun to see. I don't think that old Volvos would excite me as much....

Funny you should mention old Volvos. Some of my friends would drive nothing else in the 70s, and one of them had a hard time giving up his mid-50s P444. I remember that car well...at one time both doors were bent stuck and we had to go through a window to get in. Before winter, he bent one back into shape...I just saw one on the net...look how simple the dashboard was... http://bringatrailer.com/2013/...ner-1958-volvo-v444/

Wonderful Piece! I noticed American Classics are huge in Scandinavian Countries. I have some photos of a Icelandic Classics cruising the streets. I was impressed at the condition of the cars.

I bet Iceland is a little kinder to most cars--since I doubt there's enough salt in the world to make a difference on their roads in the winter, right?

Agree with T&N. No car lover would expose his expensive beloved baby to ice, snow and sand.

My brother-in-law lived in Montreal, likely worse on cars than winter in Stockholm, and had a beloved classic Rover. Always a man with strict personal guidelines, at the first threat of snow into the garage and up on blocks it went. After 2 winters there myself a warm climate was the answer, no snow, no salt, no whining, his other hobby. Good thing we're anonymous here.

Owning a classic can be a a lot cheaper than most people think.The insurance can be low in states like Virginia and in some places the registration of plates last as long as you own the car. And for the last few years, the motto has been,"Keep it as is" ,so flaws are accepted as part of the history of the car.Cuts down on expensive restorations

A car that is allowed to sit "as is" is a RUSToration, not a restoration.

Rustoration. I like it! And just happen to have one in my garage as we speak. I gave it recently to my son to get rid of it, at which point he asked if he could keep it here as he doesn't have a garage. Can't win. It has been restored twice already and is due for a 3rd but that's up to the next owner, of car & garage.

I'd love to share. However, have just been discussing my tech issues with DrF. It won't be today. Sorry. I'm hoping a tech savior will happen by my computer one of these days although that hope may be in vain and I may have to bite the bullet here.

Re: Where Gumbo Watched the Sun Rise (Puzzle #20)

Acadia is one of the few "main" US National Parks I've yet to visit. A serious gap in my travel map.... Having just spent a large number of hours on an Air Canada flight to and from South America, I found it interesting to read the claim that Acadia sees the first USA Sunrise. The ads on the AirCanada video screens from Newfoundland made it very clear that if you want to see the first sunrise in North America, you need to go there instead. That is something I hope to do soon as well.

 Remember those great, big, American cars of the 50s and 60s, and maybe even 70s? You don’t get much chance to see them unless you’re near a movie shoot…so imagine my surprise, on my first day in Stockholm, when I turned the...
