Bosse Ericsson of Norrtälje in Stockholm, Sweden. Bosse is a Swedish hot rod pioneer, and he was known amongst friends as "Norrtälje-Bosse." According to an interview he did with Bengt Mattson, Bosse was introduced to the emerging Swedish hot rod scene trough a warmed over 1932 Ford roadster. "I was already interested in cars, and I was involved with ice-racing at the time, but the Chevrolet powered roadster really made a huge impression on me. I needed one for myself, " he told Bengt. The interview was published in Wheels Magazine Januari 1986, in a story named "Norrtälje Bosse."
Bosse bought his first hot rod, a 1932 Ford roadster in 1959. The roadster was hopped up featuring a Chevrolet smallblock V8, and Bosse became one of the first hot rodders in Sweden to install a Chevrolet engine in a hot rod. After that followed a custom Crown Victoria pick up, a Model T coupe build that he didn't complete, and a couple of 1934 Fords that he also didn't complete. In 1961 he bought his first Chevrolet Corvette, about 15 more Corvette's followed.
