Power Big Meet 2017 was a hugh car show. 3 days and about 22.000 cars may have been less than last years figure of 25.000 cars but there was a car show at our old venue in Västerås – so figure the math! We are very pleased with the car count and the fact that so many enthusiast from Holland and Germany made the trip north. Probably 4-500 cars from these two countries! We had many visitors from Austria and Switzerland too. A contingent of cars from Moscow, Russia took us by surprise! We hope all of you had a great visit to the great north. Welcome back next year!

If you have visited Power Big Meet in an american car you have probably been given a Big Meet license plate entering the gates in your American made car. They were first given out in 1987 (87-89 made of cardboard – since 1990 made of aluminum) and they have become quite a collectors item. The new ones sell of around €50 after the show. A whole complete collection has sold for €2000 (as of May 27 2017) on the Swedish webauction sight Tradera. The record for one plate is €380! The amount was paid for a 1987 cardboard plate in perfect condition. Remember these vanity plates have been given away free by the Power Big Meet event organizers! First come – first served!
The 39th annual Power Big Meet in Västerås Sweden will be remembered as the greatest show ever in the best weather ever!
Counting the cars that went on to the airfield/showgrounds over 3 days we are talking in excess of 24.000 cars! Must bee seen to be believed! The vendor area was jam packed with some 800 sales stands. We had visitors from around the globe in large numbers! This show has the biggest influx of international visitors in the world! Talking cars: The Mustang Car Corrall alone had 224 Mustangs in one area. Probably 100 more Mustangs never found their way to the Club area!
Plans are set for a 40:th annual Power Big Meet July 6-8 2017. As the show already is on the ragged edge as far as people and cars goes in one town some changes might have to be made for 2017. Look for an update in the fall!
