Custom Motor Show

This is the rear window of a 1950 Volkswagen. The car was exhibited at the 2018 Bilsport Performance & Custom Motor Show in Jonkoping, Sweden. This show, always held at Easter, is the largest auto and motorbike show in Scandinavia. After the first exhibition in 1971, the show has been staged annually since 1976. This year’s show had almost 84,000 visitors. In addition to cars and bikes in various classes like Custom, Performance, Finish and Classic, there were stunt and drifting shows.

Here are some more images from the show.
