    Yesteday I went to this car show, one of the most important (if not the most important) classic car show in South America. Here are some pics, including my own version of this Rolls-Royce made on Paint:

    Yes, I know, this is not the traditional kind of cars we love, but it is pretty good.

    I love this roadster!! I think this is the only set of Ardun heads in Argentina.

    A TC (Turismo Carretera) racing car from the fifties. It looks like a weird show rod!

    A Deuce!! 1932 Fords are really hard to find in Argentina. This one came from Brazil.

    An early thirties Ford V8 racing car (baquet), the grill shell is obviusly came from a 32, but I don't think this is a Deuce.

    Kool pictures! Interesting to see some hot rods from Argentina.
    What's the story behind this one:

    Is it a new or old build?

    Actually the few true hot rods in Argentina began being built about three years ago. This one was built by a museum as a project called "Building two hot rods in 90 days", in 2008 or 2009. They built this and the Jaguar-powered T-bucket. The interesting story is about the engine. As you can see, it's a flathead with the Ardun conversion. This engine was built in 1958 or 1959 by a Turismo Carretera racer called Galvez (one the greatest heroes in TC history). I don't remember what happened at that time, but he couldn't use this engine for racing in TC, so he raced Y-blocks for many years after this; don't trust me too much, I don't remember the full story! The engine remained in the museum for about five decades. I saw it in Autoclásica three years ago (pic attached). I'm almost sure this is the only set of Ardun heads in Argentina. About the car, they say it's a 32, but I'm not sure. Deuces are almost impossible to find here, and this bosy is very modified. It looks more like a model A mixed with a model T. At least the chassis and the grill are 32! Saludos, El Momio!

    If I'm not wrong it's a 1933 o 34 flathead-powered Indy car. Obviously, a modern replica!
