The weather gods, capricious as always in Sweden, decided to be kind to the event and the day turned out to be both warm and sunny but very windy. The organizers expected some 1500 cars to turn up, which they did together with lots of motorbikes, scooters and mopeds, outboard engines, stationary engines and everything else fitted with an engine or wheels.


    As always, there were a lot of interesting activities and entertainment. A replica of the first motor car, the three-wheeler Benz Motor-Wagen from 1886, graced the grounds and an old SK61 Bulldog fighter aircraft from the Swedish Air Force and the now well-known Biltema Spitfire WWII fighter graced the skies.
