We Need Your Help!
We need someone in Sweden to make a phone call and get some information for us
We do Not speak Swedish and they do Not speak English
Your help would be greatly be appreciated
Don, if it's T related and you are on Facebook there is a pretty active Swedish Model T group. I'm sure one of those guys could help. Andrew
I believe Dick Lodge from St. Louis-Mo does some translating and he may know someone who could help.
Perhaps you could contact him for assistance.
I suggest a pm to Roger Karlson. Roger frequently posts on this forum. A Google search of his name and "MTFCA forum" will pull up a thread with his name and pm info.
Roger Karlson has a post on the Ford Tire Repair Kit a bit further down
The Swedish Chef from The Muppets immediately comes to mind ....
Best bet is Roger Karlson, his English is perfect, and his T knowledge is great too, really nice guy. Visited me when his family was in FL at wallyworld.
email Roger @ below:

Thanks for the plug, Dennis, but I only do Dutch. Others have already beat me to the suggestion that came to my mine immediately, i.e. Roger Karlson.
Sure I can help, Don - just mail me at the address Dan wrote above or phone me at 01146 705434338 (it's 5:14 PM here now)
I have been in touch with Roger Karlsson
Never mind that we were misspelling your name.....
Maybe "Karlson" is the Americanized version?
No problem Rob To americanize it like most Swedish-Americans did, it would be Carlson, but I don't think I'll be moving over, just visit (rarely, unfortunately)
Don, the guy will call me when he's back at his wrecking yard tomorrow where it stands. I'll call you and let you know what he finds.
(it's about a non T related car deal)
I like to see our T community helping friends all over the world, whether its for a specifically T related thing or not. If the rest of the world would be a lot more like most model T people, 3/4 of all people's problems would just end.
Ought to be numerous Swedish T owners in Mini-Sota.
^ Not really........full of Norwegians.......uffda.......then.......
Yeah, what Craig said--Swede walks into a bar and says, I just heard the greatest Norwegian joke!
Hold it fella, says the Bartender--I'm Norwegian, that big lunk over there, my bouncer, is Norwegian--the head waitress over there is Norwegian--you still want to tell that joke??
Nah, says the Swede--I don't want to explain it three times!
(If you're Norwegian, just reverse it!)
All in good fun!
Let us not forget the Scandinavians ....
Ole & Lena celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary
After the guests had left - Ole came to Lena in the kitchen ...
" Lena - these have been wonderful years but I have strayed on occasion ....
When I did - I put a soybean in the top drawer of my dresser "
Lena was upset ....
But she was also curious ....
So she went to look in the drawer & found (3) soybeans and a crisp $20 bill .....
" Ole - I found this in the drawer ....
What about the $20 bill ? "
Ole replied ...
" Well Lena I was saving those soybeans but then they hit $20 a bushel ..... "
