This is just too cool not to post it in here. As you probably know, we have a long winter here in Finland and a lot of snow, so they organized Ice Race for American Cars in Helsinki. These are not my pictures, but I think they are really cool. What do you think?

Got a better pic of the tires on that red Chrysler?  I think Dad and I threw out a set of those nearly 10 years.......and they had to be almost 40 years old at the time!

Not my pictures either, but I hope these help. Those look really old, I was looking at them too at a Swap Meet we had last weekend.

I really adore the passion that Swedish and Finnish people have for American classics, those guys really know their stuff and take care of the cars well. Some of them even made it to Russia's very tiny Muscle car Community in Moscow and Saint Peters burg.
