Info: 2008-08-22 to 24, It was time to have the yearly Trucking Festival/Nordic Trophy, this time at Elmia, Jönköping-Sweden. The head orginazer behind this show is the Trucking Magazine TRAILER that you´ll find at Trailer.se , and this newspaper is as well sold in all of the northern countrys and has a Gb version as well. I had the luck to have one of my best friends compeating in the show so i could join him there with his beautiful truck, sad enough it did´nt get any prices but in our eyes it´s the most beautiful baby anyway.. ;) Coments follow ounder sektions of pics telling what it´s all about and in the same weekend they had the Resque-exib. at the same location and if you wanne see this pics click here. It´s always wounderful to come here, one weekend ayear when the drivers can relax and show how nice their trucks look even though they are rolling all year around, and keeping this polish of the trucks when they are rolling this hard is not easy, i know. Anyway we had a great time and are looking forward to the next event and enjoy the pictures.
