I love these old cars, and this one looks like fun. The colors are nice too.
Was it originally a delivery truck or has it been modified?


I can tell the "project" is the car, look at all those leaves... :lol:

Yes it was a fairly rare (only 1500 produced) model.
Not sure what it's history of use was (1936 was a long time ago) but now it's once again looking and driving nice.
Finally got caught up to the leaves...with maple trees you sometimes have to just let them do their thing for a while. About the only thing still holding leaves are the weeping willows, which are golden yellow. First to sprout, last to fall.

Now that winter is coming I like to plan next year's backpacking trips and recall previous ones.
Here is a great trip report and photos from a couple who visited one of my favorite places.
It's the kind of place that when I first visited I knew it would haunt me for the rest of my life...calling me back again and again. Sometimes you just have to live vicariously until circumstances allow you to actually return.

Your homepage and the sceneries of your place are great. I have got very inspired of your great web site with very nice pictures. I have to redo mine not copying yours but redo it.

My son are chatting with a boy in Michigan and have a wish to go to there. We have serious thinking of sending him for an student exchange to US and he want's to go to the northern parts. The landscape has resemblance with how it looks here in Sweden. What I know there were lots of swedish immigrants who went to Michigan and I can understand them.

Thank you, Tommy, I'm pleased that you like my 'stuff'.

The northern parts of Michigan- or anywhere along the shore of the Lakes- are indeed the more scenic parts. Once you stand on the shore of a freshwater lake that is so big you can't see the other side you'll understand why they are called Great Lakes. If your son is brave enough to visit Michigan in the winter then nothing will scare him! Naturally, it's usually better to visit during the summer, but as an exchange student I guess you have to be here while school is in session.

The Midwest did attract a lot of Scandanavian immigrants - the Upper Peninsula Finns especially are still going strong up there...Sisu!

Closer to home, here is a smorgasbord of photos from around the 'Space Place'.

I'm impressed that the swedish traditions are exercised in the US.

Thank you a lot for your links. It will be a great help to us. I shall contact the people who are in charge of the swedish organisations and see if they can help us with a student exchange.

The pictures you linked to resembles a lot to the nature in Sweden.
I had have the same scenery out of hte windows of the train to my work last year, 65km away.

Some great shots of the Enchanted Mitten by a whole bunch of photographers.
I especially liked this slideshow from one of my favorite spots along the Lake Superior shoreline.

All good photos and great places. I like that lighthouse with the ice and turnip rock.
