Here come some more shots from A-Bombers 18th “Old Style Weekend”. The pics are taken day two both in Devils Peak and in Backamo.
I'm pretty impressed of the Finnish enthusiast who replaced a broken valve spring on his old Big Twin SV engine, right on the MC parking. He was supported by his friends who all were in a very good mode, possibly with help of some Lapin Kulta Beer. Even so, how he found a new spring, he simply advertised on a cardboard box…. and got in contact with a guy from Oslo who later on delivered it!

The “Old Style Weekend” was even this year a brilliant happening. Nice and friendly people, all this fantastic cars and bikes, a relaxed style with a wide range of rockabilly music from International bands as well from the DJ, Trasan, all over the whole weekend.
One machine to be mention is the monster called “Il Drago Ruggente”, a Delage DI chassis from 1924, under hood a V12 engine from a Caproni-bomber back in 1940, with a cylinder volume of 27 liters (1650 CID) and with an output of 750 HP. The builder and owner Glenn Billqvist from the south of Sweden, brought this beast on a trailer, pulled by an Auburn Speedster from the mid 30's! On Saturday, he also shows up in Devil's Peak to race with this monster, unfortunately with mixed result, but without any doubt the most popular…
More pics to come!
