Göran "Sillen" Silfors' Model A roadster at the 1968 Hot Rod Show in Stockholm. Known as the Early Bird, Sillen's roadster featured Royal Blue Metalflake flames by Yankee Custom Parts. "Sillen" pinstriped the car himself after it had been painted. The car ended its days in a garage wall. The remaining parts were sold and spread all over Sweden. Photo from The P.A.

The blue Metalflaked 1962 Ducati 125cc in this photo belonged to Ted Westerfors. The four-stroke motorbike featured a custom seat, custom tank, and sparkling Metalflake paint job by Bosse "Gamen" Sandberg. "Also a lot of polished aluminum," Ted told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2019. "Gamen invited me after painting the gas tank. I got paid 125 SEK for participating in the show. Very proud..." Ted lived in Bromma, a western suburb of Stockholm. "Since I didn’t have any form of transportation and the bike didn’t run, I had to push it all the way. Took me 4 hours and a sore back because it was so low." Photo from the P.A. Flink Photo Collection.

The 4th annual Hot Rod Show was held in Stockholm, Sweden in 1968.

From 1968 Picko Troberg incorporated the Hot Rod Show from Gamen. With Picko's help, the show was moved to the winter holiday week, much better as many more had time to visit. 1968s show was between 23 February to 3 March.
