Our second year at the Hovby Airport near Lidköping/Sweden proved very succesful. US Car enthusiasts from all over the world attended the show. Saturday alone over 9.000 cars came to the showground. Swap Meet vendors reported brisk sales – especially on the last day of the show as cooler weather gave relief from the extreme heat wave that has hit the Scandinavian countries this summer. Crusing in Lidköping at night was incredible to put it mildly. Thousands of high quality cars lined the streets for 10 kilometers!
One of many “HIGHS” of the show was when seven 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertibles parked side by side in front of an impressed crowd. A VERY unusual event! Power Big Meet 2018 saw an incredible number of unusual high quality american 50:s and 60:s convertibles at the show. Best in show award went to Stefan Wernestrands fantastic 1960 Chrysler 300 F convertible.
One of the major attractions that makes Power Big Meet so special is the swap meet. If you are looking for hard to find parts this is the place! No other swap meet in the world can compete when it comes to parts for 1950:s American Car Parts. Reason being that Swedes bought 100:s of containers full of good parts in the US when they were almost free of charge in the 1970:s and 80:s. One of our 300 vendors sold 20.000 Euros worth of Cadillac parts! Already looking forward to the next Power Big Meet July 4-6 2019! Mark the date in your calender. And book your hotell rooms early on booking.com, hotells.com or the sight of your choice!
1,5 kilometers of swap meet at Power Big Meet 2017 was very impressive! You hade to be in Lidköping in person and walk the walk to take in HOW BIG IT WAS! Vendors report brisk sales and the number of old car parts vendors astonished many new visitors. Much better than swap meets in the USA was a common comment! Reason for this that so many old car parts were bought in the US by Swedes 20-40 years ago when the parts had almost no value!
