The 10th annual Jokers Car & Bike Show in
Tidaholmsparken in Tidaholm this weekend must have been a success. It was
great to be there, even if it in my case was for the Friday only, due to other
commitments (bad planning). Anyhow, I got a nice ride for 250 miles on my Knuckle ´45 in sunshine.
A very nice mixture of motorcycle and car styles from the
late 40's up to early 60's, show up with their Enthusiasts. It was fantastic to
meet all friends and be together with this entire people who keep the tradition rolling
on….Even so the show has been promoted as the last Jokers Car & Bike Show, I
do hope the “JoKerS MoToRfaMiLy” will be back with something else in
This very nice ´56 Mercury Montclair Phaeton arrived for
some weeks here in my hometown. A friend of mine has imported this survivor from
sunny California. Phaetons were Mercury´s top of the line four-door hardtops.
This one is solid black, most was two tones back in that time. The car has its
original Y-block, 312 CID V8 engine, although it did not have many miles on it.
