On the way to the Tullinge car show

It took me a long time wandering around Tullinge Flygplats area before I found the car show. You can see why from the entrance...I had actually been past it on the bus without recognising it.

Street Car Fest - Barkarby Flygplats

The Street Cars Fest came to Barkarby Flygplats. There were a few of the same cars as last time, but unfortunately this was outside, in the corner of a retail park car park, and it was a rainy day so not so many people turned up with their cars.
