It’s year end and I tend to do a bit of organizing on the way to the big change of the calendar page (not so much) and the paper and electronic files (huge task). I ran across a business card for the project of a group of university students. I had met them, but never had followed up on the final outcome.

Leave it to a car lady to begin an international trip with a car show. Since I was the instigator of a family heritage type trip which ended up being a group of eight people, and the only opportunity that came up in our time frame was for the very day we arrived in Sweden, I had to fit it into the plan! The fact that all the travelers could hardly keep eyes open by the end of the show, we pressed our hosts to leave a bit early and miss the exceptional lottery prize giveaways, and we each lost half the next day to sleep, does not diminish the amount of enjoyment we got out of attending this car show.
After a fitful night in airline seats and arrival mid-day in Stockholm, we boarded a train for a small town where we were met by an assemblage of four vehicles to drive us to the Trosa show. Trosa, Sweden (pronounced trrue’-sa) is a fishing village on the east coast of Sweden. Our convoy included two Auburns, a Cobra and a vintage Chrysler. We arrived without incident after a country drive and did not hit any moose in the road. It really was an excellent outing! Thank you to all four of our Drivers for the extra effort it took to accommodate us. It could not have been a better introduction to Swedish hospitality.
Doing what car people do with cars: getting a better look.
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is held each August and is considered an international premier event in the lives of car collectors and aficionados. This year we were thrilled to see two cars in particular attend. Auburns Midwest supplied parts that assisted in both of these restorations.
