A comic picture

Photo taken 1959.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- Three women at an Opel Kapitän -52. A friend and I was members of Club 1000 (not to be mistaken with 1000meters club) anyhow, it was back in “Morsans” (“moms”) days. At the time the coffee place was the place to be and I remember spending many afternoons ther.

My brother bought his camera

Photo taken 1959/1960, Edsviksvägen in old Sollentuna.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- Picture of Lennart Djurbergs fathers old A – Ford 31, which they had owned since the 40's (and still do!) The picture is taken around 1958-1960, can't quite remember when but it was back when my brother bought his camera and ran around photographing everything. The picture is of old Sollentuna.

My brother's old Ford 32

Photo taken 1959/1960.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- My brother's old Ford 32 that he bought for 600 kr (~ $90) back in 1958. He kept the car for a while and although he always got the leftovers he somehow always managed to drive faster than everyone else. In this picture the car was red and black convertible. Later on I was asked to add some kind of iron structure on the top to make it look more modern and not like a convertible. The Ford is an original and my brother used mechanical brakes in the beginning before he switched to hydraulic. In the picture the car still had the old 85 hp motor which was later on switched out.

“Moms”

Picture taken 1959 outside “Moms”

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- In the back one can find our old club 1000 decal. Not sure why we named it that way but it was like a biker club. My brother was in Road Devils and then there was Teddy Boys and my Club 1000. The picture seems to have been taken outside “Moms” coffee house in Roslags Näsby right by one of the gas stations.

Lasse Capone

Photo taken 1964/65 outside my childhood home at Alvägen in Sollentuna.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- My old friend Lasse “Capone” Hammarström by his Ford Mercury after a vacation in France with it. Then in the background it must be my brothers old PV right behind a Ford 56. Also in the picture my old childhood home in Alvägen in Sollentuna. Lasse, whom in the picture looks like quite the charmer, was back then almost done with his studying to become a lawyer.

The Director's daughter

Photo taken 1963/1964.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- Svarten, “Nickan” Anicka Skog and I. We worked together at “Osterman kompisen” where Nickan and I managed the switch board. Osterman could first be found at Ölandsgatan in Stockholm but later on moved to Märgvägen in Johanneshov. Every lunch break we would go down to Henrys’ Coffee place to grab a bite to eat. The only way to go was of course to squeeze in three people up front and today was not an exception. The car driven was an old Austin A55.

Capone, “school boy”, Bytte and I

Photo taken 1962, at Helenelund outside Konsum.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- Lasse Capone with my 1953 Ford with side valve engine and 55-grill, parked right by the School Boy's car (a Taunus). The picture is taken in Helenelund, right outside the grocery store Konsum. My Ford 53 was a pretty cool looking but crappy (or shall I say of age) car. Between 1952-1954 the body came with “Marchal Fantastic” or “knopp Marchal” which people in Sweden call them nowadays.

One turn too many at Ulriksdalsgatan

Photo taken in 60's.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- This is what used to be my old schoolmate Henrik Åström's car, a VW 1200 from 1964/1965. Unfortunately he decided to take a turn too many at Ulriksdalsgatan and his car never fully recovered from that.

Old “Bilcentralen” (“car centra”)

Photo taken 1963 in Danderyd, Stockholm.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- Driving up from Danderyds church, on the hill to Mörby Centrum, “Bilcentralen” was located. Back when this picture was taken we were still using left-handed traffic, and in the back of the picture one can make out Mörbyhöjden. The house that Bilcentralen was found in is what I believe used to be an old Konsum grocery store. At the far back a Volvo Duett and to its right a Saab and the third car (that hardly made it into the picture) is a Valiant.

Rösjön

Photo taken in the 60's by Rösjön in Stockholm.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- From the left Bosse Luntans 1947 Bullford, my 1953 Ford and Hasse Skogis A55 Austin. Picture taken by Rösjön which was one of our favorite places to hang out. My Ford with a Yankee plate on the back – a most def. image booster.

Norrtälje Bosse, a legend

Photo taken early 60's on Alviksvägen in Sollentuna.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- Norrtälje Bosse, or Corvette Bosse by many, on his way home from picking up his new car. In the picture is Bosse stopping by my place at Alvägen so that I could admire his latest babe. Something that I to this day remember very well about Bosse was his ability to alter and improve cars. He was known in the Norrtälje area for his cars and they often won prizes at car shows. Someone once asked Bosse: Tell me something Bosse, what do u enjoy most, rebuilding Corvettes or building Hot Rod? - Well, steel is a great material, he said, that f**ing Tupperware party is more like a waste of time. 1932 Ford, the world’s ugliest car. One rebuilds

School Boy

Photo taken 60's at Alvägen in Sollentuna.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- This is my friend Björn Melins 1956 Ford. It was an original, not much to rebuild on this one, the car worked pretty well but wasn't worth much. A car like this usually sell for about 500kr ($70).

Austin A55 for this Krom Victoria

Photo taken 1962/1963.

Picture published 2011-01-14, Ronny Eriksson.

- One of my old buddies traded his Austin A55 for this Krom Victoria. Might have seemed like a pretty bad trade considering the stage of the car but the damage actually wasn't that bad and we fixed it during a weekend - piece of cake! After the repairs the car actually went really well. However, my friend decided to sell his newly fixed car and when the buyer came down to try it he lost contact with the rode and hit a telefon line. Aggravated with the car that was once again a piece of sh*t the car was given away and to this day I have no idea what happened to it after.
