Hammers Back to the 50's Weekend

Hammers Back to the 50's Weekend “Time Warp” is an event for Customs, Hot rods and MC’s, organized by the Hammers Car Club of Sweden.
It’s held at a small country fairground, located in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by woods and next to a lake.
This meet is not widely advertised, mostly by word of mouth, and this is one of those meet where the phrase "Quality over quantity" suits perfectly.

Ford 1932 Roadster Barn Find

It’s unbelievable to find a 1932 Ford Roadster in this condition, in 2014. All of us have dreams of finding that pristine older car…… my friend Bengan he did! The car has been stored in a Barn in Colorado since early 1960´s, for over 50 years! Last time it was up for inspection was in 1956. Usually a Barn Find is in a crummy condition. This car is in a very good shape for its age, equipped with a four-banger, it fired up quite good after he changed the oil and add some new gasoline!!!

Look at the pictures, if this car could talk she could tell us a lot from back in time. Like the biggest financial crash, started 1929, which was the beginning of the 10-years Great Depression that affected all Western industrialized countries. Despite of what happens, Henry Ford introduced his great automotive innovation, the lightweight, inexpensive V8 engine, in 1932. When the depression was ended, the American mobilization started in 1941 for World War II…… 
Bengans Ford -32 was there and still is!
