OT. Do you live in Scandinavia?

Hi you all.

I thaught we could see how many of us on this fine forum actually are from Scandinavia.

Sweden
Finland
Norway
Denmark

If we are a few maybe we can eventually arrange somekind of "truckfest" or "truckstock" Scandinavian style.

Please state name, country and city if you want to, and year of pickup.

I´ll start with:

Jimmy Carlsson
Sweden
Fagersta
F100 1956

Hi!
I live in Katterjåkk, Norrbotten. I was a FTE member ten years ago but was stupid enough to sell the truck and buy a Mach 1-69. Now I am cured from the disease and I am back with a "new"F100 1956 BBW with a 272 y-block and Fordomatic and this truck I will keep forever. I am absolutely in love with this forum. People are extremely helpful.

I have to say though that the family has gotten much better looking over the years must have been all those Mormon Women

I do not live in Scanda-navia, I live in Pennsyl- vania.... or am I dislexic?

Anyway, a Truckfest in Northern Europe sounds like a good idea for you guys.

Hey Jimmy,
Don't forget about us "transplanted" Scandinavians. Drinking expensive drinks & talking trucks sounds like fun. Every time I checked into a hotel in Sweden they changed my last name because they knew I was just misspelling it - I gave up & went by Danielsson over there. (1) less "s" over here.

My great grandfather came over from Smaland(?) to the U.S. in 1885.
I think there are more Scandinavian guys on here.

Sorry, I don't qualify! I am of German Descent what we call here Pennsylvania Dutch. The term Dutch is a corruption of Deutsch, (German for German) and not someone from Holland. My Mother's family arrived in Phila. in 1722 and my Dad's ancestors came in 1733....

Very interesting Abe!! 1722 !! Your mother's family arrived very early!!
I had to check google for U.S population in 1720.
"The population of American colonists reached approx 500,000"

Ford PU noob in Västerås here.

Noob to the extreme extent that I do not even have even ONE rusty part, much less so something that resembles a potential restoration candidate.
BUT, I am stubborn and in the process of finding a F1 or F100 that can be resurrected by a 68 y.o.

Have never worked on a frame-vehicle , but naive enough to believe that it must be simpler than a unibody. Last unibody rebuild was a 230 SL, kept at it for 8 years.

Hope to find and complete a F1/F100 before being hauled off to the senior citizens heaven.

Jimcar, pse call me

Hi Jimcar,
thanks for the reassuring words. The pu will "be a walk in the park" compared to an 230SL (Pagoda).
Well maybe for some, but the Pagoda was done after having played around with 50s/60s MBs for 30 years, all kinds ( except the 300 SL). I tend to work much too fast when learning new stuff, so first time screw up is default mode for me. Great way to learn, second time goes a bit better, and cheaper. The fifth time I am really good ( but bored ).

So, I am quite sure that I will learn a lot of new things if I succeed in getting one of the two pick-ups I am chasing.

Could you please get in touch with me, I live in Västerås.

Have some q´s regarding rust repairs and best way to source patch panels.

You can get me on phone 0723 000 895. I tried to post this as a comment to you directly a few days ago, but maybe i goofed up?

Best regards

Ola
