Hans "Hasse" Broberg of Enskedefältet in Stockholm, Sweden. Born in 1941, Hasse and his buddy Kjell "Kjelle" Gustad began building hot rods and custom cars in 1961. Hasse and Kjelle belonged to the second generation of Swedish hot rodders, who learned about the style from American magazines such as Hot Rod Magazine and Rod & Custom. The new Swedish hot rod and custom scene was born in Stockholm, and Southern Stockholm guys such as Bosse "Gamen" Sandberg, Sven Sandberg, Bengt Wennergren, Hasse and Kjelle were prominent guys in the scene. In 2015 Hasse told Kustomrama that he and Kjelle used to hang around the older guys that were into hot rods, such as Lennart Djurberg, and that's how they got started; "Me and Kjelle's first car was a 1937 Ford tudor that we cut the roof off, as we wanted a convertible. The year was 1961, and we only drove it a little before we sold it. After the Ford, we came across a 1938 Chevrolet convertible in 1962. We installed an Oldsmobile V-8 engine in the Chevrolet."
