Peder: My cars give me stomach ulcers – Chronicles

“All of this is starting to give me stomach ulcers, so I’m thinking of some backup plans. I’ve been looking at rental apartments in Spain, among other things, if I had to flee.”

Peder’s real Ford F-250 went into a tree this winter, so now it is being rebuilt and becomes even bigger and baller. Now he gets stomach ulcers because neither he nor his Camaro (right) are ready for the Elmia Mass this Easter.

This is a chronicle. This means that the content is the writer’s own opinion.


At the time of writing there are about three weeks left until Easter and the car show in Elmia. As I wrote before, the plan is to show the old Camaron there to the public for the first time.

It will be great fun to watch people’s reactions when they see it. A 50 year old car where everything is new and completely special. There is not a thing left of the original car apart from a few body parts. After two years and more money invested than I dare think of, it will finally be shown!

At the same show, as of an event right next to the Camaron, my pickup will be standing. The Ford, which was not so small from the beginning, one must honestly say, is getting much bigger. It should be raised, widened, and smeared full of lots of goodies, both to look at and to listen to.

For example, it will have three cameras. Two backwards and one forwards. An immediate necessity to be able to steer around it in normal parking spaces. It’s way too long, way too wide, and way too high to run like a daily driver really. But it’s going to be a sick ball, and that’s the most important thing, right?

These are just two small problems. The first is that none of the cars are finished. The Camaron is ready mechanically, except that the gearbox and some small things will be programmed, and the vulgarly beautiful interior will be ready in a few days. But it is still not painted and there are a lot of body details left to fix before it is ready to drive.

Pickisen is waiting for parts from the USA. Quite many. New front, new butt, new flat lid, new side steps, new rims, new tires. Yes, such little things.

As you know, it has not immediately become easier to get hold of stuff since the little pandemic started. But if the supplier keeps what they promise, things will come in good time. A whole week before the fair starts if everything flows.

It feels half heavy when the guys who work on the cars leave their families at home and toil like animals to the last to get them ready so I can stand there and sunbathe in their splendor. Partly also because I have bragged to very many that they will be there, and people from as far away as Norrland have booked hotels and go there alone to see them.

Problem number two I came across the other day. I suppressed it, I think. If and when they are ready, which as I said is within a few weeks, then they must be paid. Did not think about that. What a good timing that they will be ready just as I am rebuilding my new house. To build cars and houses is almost free.

All of this is starting to give me stomach ulcers, so I’m thinking of some backup plans. I have looked at rental apartments in Spain, among other things, if I should have to flee. I have also checked out how complicated it is to change the name and get a secret address in case everything should shit.

No, it probably should not have to go that far. I think everything will go great. The cars will be parked there in the A-hall and I will sit and drink beer with the rest of the rags. Probably as a new major customer at Finax telephone loans, but they should also live, I think.

Everything is resolved, we can be seen at Elmia.
