The Epa tractor was developed during the World War II in Sweden. The Epa is a converted passenger car which, at that time, 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.
