Your Dream Car?

Last Friday evening I happened to walk on Sveavägen which is one of the main streets in Stockholm city. Think perhaps Champs Élysées in Paris or Ringstrasse in Vienna, Nagykörút (Grand Boulevard) in Budapest.
Péntek este épp a Sveavägenen jártam, ami Stockholm belvárosának az egyik főutcája. Mondjuk, mint Párizsban a Champs Élysées, Bécsben a Ringstrasse, vagy Pesten a Nagykörút.

To my surprise, it was so much more alive than any other times I have been there - and that is one of the places where I am several times a week. First time since I have been here, this street looked like an ordinary weekday summer evening in one of those streets mentioned above. With the difference that here it was a special occasion.
Meglepetésemre ezúttal sokkal élettelibb volt, mint bárkor, amikor erre jártam - márpedig ez az egyik hely, amerre hetente többször is megfordulok. Mióta itt vagyok, ez az út most először tűnt olyannak, mint a fent említettek egy közönséges, nyári hétköznap este - azzal a különbséggel, hogy itt most valami különleges alkalom volt.

I found out that on the last Friday of every month they have a cruise with great cars.
Megtudtam, hogy minden hónap utolsó péntekjén klassz járgányok pompáznak itt végig.

Not too great quality photos, took them with my phone, without flash, but you get the feeling.
Nem túl jó minőségű fotók, a mobilommal csináltam őkat, vaku nélkül, de itt a fíling.

This one is for parties on board, obviously:
Ez nyilván egy partiautó:

I didn't see them all, but maybe this Buick was my favorite:
Nem láttam mindet, de talán ez a Buick volt a kedvencem:

And this cute nanny was just standing there on the road, watching them passing by...
Ez az aranyos mamika pedig csak ott álldogát az úton, és bámulta, ahogy elhúztak...

I just noticed: it's all red cars... On Saturday there will be another cruise, I should pass by and shoot some blue ones too - or silver, yellow, black, green.
Most veszem észre: mindegyik piros... Szombaton lesz egy másik parádé, ha sikerül, megnézem, és lekapok pár kéket is - vagy ezüstöt, sárgát, feketét, zöldet. 

I have never thought of what would be my Dream Car - but what is yours?
Még sose gondoltam arra, hogy mi lenne az én Álomautóm - de mi lenne a tiéd?

Hi Andrea! It has been a long absence, but things have been a bit hard: father 95, mother almost 91 doing radiotherapy, wife broke right elbow and I’m consuming some much needed holidays to take care of all this...

Amazing!! And all red... ;)

As far as Blogtrotter Two is concerned, it seems nobody is interested in St. Kitts, so maybe I should try something else. Anyhow, enjoy and have a great week or better a vacation, if still available!!!

Amazing old school cars, the only problem is the fuel consumption with those cars, i have seen quite a lot of them in Pigeon Forge, TN some years back.

For me, I would like to have the Dodge Charger! Mine should be in black, but red isn’t all that bad either. And I would like it to have a white pinstripe running along the middle. Nothing beats good ol’ American muscle! Anyway, maybe you can find your dream car the next time you have a walk down at Sveavägen!
