New member from Sweden

Hi!
My name is Jimmy and I live in Sweden, just outside the capital Stockholm. Really like this forum, I have had a lot of use of searching the treads for trouble shooting, fast answers

Just bought a Camaro 69 from Florida, shipped it home to Sweden. The plan is to mount some QA1 coilovers in the front, just bought them. Change the front control arms and stiff up the steering a bit. I have my eyes of CCP control arms, but if someone have any ideas of another brand in the same price range its welcome.
Otherwise the plan is just improve things on the car
Also bought the Marquez design RS taillights, will look real nice.

Tjena,

Kul med fler svenskar!
Snygg 69a!

Red: The gas price really suck..it's $2.32/liter in Sweden which should give me $8.75/gallon...correct me if I'm wrong, Jimmy.

Thanks you all, the price is $8.75/gallon so its right, really expensive with gas here.
The last week the $ has lost some value compared to the Swedish krona.

Re: New member from Sweden

Welcome, Jimmy. Nice ride indeed.
$9/gal, I'm having sticker shock still over fueling my truck, 20 US gals for $73 USD!
However, I saved $1 USD over the regular price with a 5 cts off per gal discount coupon........

Re: New member from Sweden

Welcome Jimmy the Svenske, from Canada. You have a great looking car! I hear you on the price of petrol...not as bad here, but not good either. There's quite a few Norske Camaro owners on the site as well, eh? Good luck on your future endeavours.

Re: New member from Sweden

Think its alot of members here from the northern part of Europe, american muscle cars and classics are very popular, specially here in Sweden.
This is the 7th musclecar/classic I imported from the states, all of them are easy to sell. You should see the car shows here, they are getting bigger every year.

Re: New member from Sweden

Yes, I can see these types of cars being almost exotics in Europe...the same is happening in England as well.

We turn heads over here...I can't imagine the reaction when you drive by someone over there.

Happy roads.
