Classic cars in Argentina: A treasure to discover
We have spoken about the incredible street art of Buenos Aires, something which is not listed in the typical tourist guides.
Here we would like to show you another curios aspect you can see in the street of Argentina: Classic cars.
Classic cars in Argentina are everywhere.
Somebody can argue that a old rusted car is not a classic car, but just a old -four-wheels-zombie. For me no. I repute them classic cars, since the models are very old and because with a lot of work you could make them live another life.
You can easily find a old fiat 600, built in Argentina from 1960 to 1982, a Ford Taunus, constructed from 1974 to 1983 or a Renault 12.
90% of these cars are still used.
Sometimes I must confess I have been really scared to cross the street since many of them, especially Renault 12, seems to not have very trustable brakes. =)
It is also wonderful to see many examples of vintage american cars in the street.
Problem is that the majority of them are no at all in a good shape. Rust everywhere and engine problems are very common in these vintage cars, especially if they are not well maintained. And the majority of them are not.
