CC Global Outtake: Not a Classic Van, But It Serves in a Company of Classics

KW Parts for American Cars

“Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?”  “No, but I served in a company of heroes.”  Richard Winters spoke these famous words in the interview that concluded the epic miniseries Band of Brothers, and on Veterans Day, they seem to be an appropriate way to introduce a vehicle that is not a classic but serves a company that serves classics.  A Chevrolet Express van with the front end used from 2003 onward, it is far too new to be considered a classic, a status that it will not achieve for decades, if ever.  It helps to keep Sweden’s American classics on the road, though, as a parts delivery truck for a company in Sweden that specializes in importing and distributing American auto parts.  I find it reassuring to think that an American truck is part of the support system for the large American classic car hobby in Sweden.
