Street car festival

On Sunday I went to Street Car Fest at Sollentuna Massan exhibition centre - I kept expecting to meet Vin Diesel living his life a quarter mile at a time. There was a lot of bass and a lot of people who thought their cars were really good. And to be fair some of them were. Its nice to hear that it is possible for those tricked out stereos to sound good, though there were also some that sounded awful.

Highlights were a purple MR2, 'Unicorn', an Alpine for sale (I couldn't see a price) and a couple of really nice looking Audis.

Lowlights were a Opal Nova with too much bass and a suicide door (just the one) and a Volvo pickup.

I was also interested to see the demographics of the crowd, a lot of young lads who aspire to own cars like these, a number of families with boys who obviously love cars and a few older chaps who I would've thought more at home at a motorbike rally. I was a little unnerved by the models posing by cars entourage that was visiting each of the cars and draping underdressed and underinterested girls over them. It reminded me of the comet effect you got in the school playground where everyone is following the football without having any strategy or teamwork.
