The “raggar” subculture, which emerged in Sweden in the 1950s was inspired by the American greasers. “Raggare” are mostly small-town gangs known for their love of rockabilly music, leather vests, pomade and, of course, cars - the raggare’s mode of transport, sleeping place, chick magnet and party venue.  Thanks to the raggar culture, there are more restored 1950s American cars in Sweden than in the entire US.
