Trying to recreate the magazine that arranged the 24h clunker run, since I like writing and have been a nut for years when it comes to read all automobile related litterature…
Trafikjournalen is one of Swedens leading automobile magazines. We have been testing cars since 1948, cars that have been brand new, cars that have been a couple of years old to help buyers looking for an used car, nostalgic articles about really old cars - you name it, we have tested it. Here we will put up the best of our old issues in no specific order, as well as some new articles exclusive for the Trafikjournalen web.
