Treasure hunting at Falun swapmeet

It was that time of the year again.
Since mr Tolvanen aborted his mission to tag along, another hippie joined our ranks: mr Tolonen from Roadweirdoes-fame.

We didn´t get the Hi-Ace this year, so I was forced to take my shiny family-car, a 406 peugeot armed with huge skirack. Wrong move. 406 isn´t actually a lorry and as I was a bit nervous about the interior of the car, it didn´t help that every once in a while beverages turned us into human pigs... But now I now better:-)

Still we managed to pack up the 406 with our personal stuff (mainly beer) and after the swapmeet a Honda Monkey, 4 wheels, a BSA-engine, numerous lamps, a springer front end, some Okrasa-stuff, Hazet metalshaping-tools and lots of other stuff was in too.

Anyways the swapmeet was great, found a lot of treasures and the car was packed.
Here´s some photos:


After the swapmeet we navigated back to Pasis Ranch to chill&grill. Since Pasi was not present, we amused our selfs with Sebastian´s new ride, a HondaMonkey equipped with some 80´s tuning parts:-)

Yours truly tried the ditch with the Monkey, but it wasn´t deep enough to drown me.

Some of the stuff that found it´s way back to Finland

Sebastian spanking the Monkey.

Pasi´s cat was all over us.

On the road again.

On Sunday it was time to hit the road again.
We didn´t get very far when Sebastian yelled:
"STOP, a Trojan FOR SALE!!"
After a swift U-turn we were at the scene. Knocked the house-door, nobody answered so we tried the phone-number on the sign. Turned out that the seller was far away, but told us he had two more Trojans & parts and was selling "all or nothing".

After checking out the first one we navigated to the second one behind another house, yep a red one again. Sebastian was salivating but as the seller was away, only a quick examination was in order and we hit the road again. But maybe something will come out of this...

Mats´s Secret Barn

Kai had arranged a meeting with Mats, an ultrawaganza collector of allsorts of vehicles. Here´s some photos, enjoy:

This old 92 Saab rocked my boat a lot!

As a bus-fanatic mr Tolonen was all over this Volvo.

Looks like a baby of a Tatraplan and a Porsche.

The best looking fridge-handles ever!

On the yard was something that didn´t belong there. Turned out it was Tony´s ride. It found its way to Sweden after Tony broke his bone and was unable to drive it back from Germany...

Here´s some of the stuff I scored:
