Before continuing, let me assure you that I’m 100% uninterested in tinkering with cars. I have no interest whatsoever in repairing cars, or trying to make car restorations. But I do admire people who spend a lot of time learning and doing things like this, I admire people in general that becomes really good at something, for example juggling, painting, or woodworking. And even if I’m completely uninterested, myself, I can listen/watching these people for hours.

Anyway, closely related to being interested in cars is the sub-culture “raggare”. Where I grew up, “raggare” was (is) a very popular identity to a large group of the male population. But, as I mentioned above, I’m completely uninterested in all this. However, a few years ago, I realised that there are a lot of interesting things (cars and people) to photograph when these people meet.

Today was “Wheels Nationals Norr 2022”, a fairly large “car meet” (if that’s the correct expression in English) where people from northern Sweden, + some from Finland, met to show off their cars, drive around, drink beer, and have a good time.

In other words, an excellent opportunity for me to walk around and take some photos. So let me show you a few photos, so you get a feeling for the event.
