Epaland - Rural youth culture
The Epa tractor was developed during World War II in Sweden. The Epa is a converted passenger car which served as a substitute for expensive agricultural machineries. .Today, the Epa tractor is a transport for young people in rural areas who are not old enough to drive a regular car..For boys and girls in ages between 15-18 years old, the Epa tractor is .associated with freedom and independence. They do not see the Epa tractor only as a conveyance. It is also a part of youth identity and rural culture..After the mall Nova, in the city of Lund, has closed, the young people are gathering in the parking lot outside for burnouts.
