Rewind to Sweden in 1967

On September 3rd, 1967, Swedish motorists went from driving on the left side of the road to driving on the right side.  Nearly 50 years later, the historic day is still known as Dagen H, or H Day. Amateur photographers were out in full force to capture the chaos that followed immediately after the switch became official.

What car(s) can you identify in these images?  What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage?  We’d take the Renault 10 and one of the Volvo Amazons in the first picture.
