Per Arne Knudsen
Per Arne Knudsen of Oslo, Norway is a Norwegian hot rod pioneer. Per Arne's glowing interest for hot rods was sparked when he found an American hot rod magazine at a newsstand at Koppang station in Østerdalen. At the time he had heard about The Wildcat Motorclub and people such as Per Ivar Kolgrov, but he didn't know them. Per Arne grew up in the old part of Oslo, known as Gamlebyen. He worked at the Standard shoe-factory in Gamlebyen, and at a time he had six old Fords parked behind the factory. Around 1964 Per Arne formed the club Viking Custom with his friend Roar Arnegård. Viking Custom was one of the first hot rods club of Norway. Before Per Arne set off to build his well known 1934 Ford Cabriolet he worked on a 1924 Ford Model-T tudor that he wanted to build into a hot rod. That dream ended after Neslein from the vehicle licensing department had inspected it.
