For the Dads

This post is mostly pictures, especially for our Dads who we thought would appreciate all the old/weird/foreign cars.

Today is Saturday, and while I waited for the bus  to Ikea I saw a parade of 50-60 vintage cars (at least 3 were Edsels).  I don`t know if that is speical for today or if that is every sunny Saturday in Gavle.  I didn`t have my camera, but next Saturday we have plans to go to the Farmer`s market at about the same time in the same neighbourhood, so I`ll bring my camera.
