Great Pics Ricardo ! When I was in Brazil in 2006 we visited Porte Alegra , Canoas ,Santa Rosa, Iguacu & Rio de Janeiro and I saw no modified ( or anything older than a few years old ) cars at all. Actually the oldest car I saw was an early sixties Argentinian Falcon when we crossed the border into Argentina when travelling from Santa Rosa to Iguacu. Great to see hot rods the world over. Keep the pics coming...............................................David
That's a pity because in Canoas we had our bigest collection of antique cars the "Museu da Ulbra"...this collection does not exist anymore but in 2006 it was still there...you can check part of their collection in this link: http://www.carangosemotocas.com/coberturas/2008/visitanomuseudaulbra/visitanomuseudaulbra.htm
I also send you some attachments of the building where it used to be!
Also in a city called Gramado wich is nearby Canoas you have another collection:
Any idea what the car in the background is? It looks small, but maybe the picture is deceiving. Beautiful assortment of cars. Thank You.
Wonderful photos of a great group of hot rods.
Im not sure...Looks like an European car...Fiat for instance were always very popular over here! European cars are popular since the 1920's in Brazil...I haven't paid atention to that one during the event...Its a pity!
These pics are beautiful, Thank you.
Are you close to Sao Bernardo dos Campos?
No...Im not! This is close to the city of Sao Paulo wich is a city of the same region (Southeast) as Rio de Janeiro...Where I live!
I will be in Sao Bernardo the week of Jan 17th. That why I was asking.
If you come to Rio just send me a PM...Maybe I can show you around...Around Sao Paulo you can see some nice cars and events also!
I have a good friend in the Sao Bernardo area who is a car guy. It is a business trip so I will have to see.
That's the Poster
Almost sure this is a Cezeta, build by CZ in Tjechoslowakia
Does anything get cooler than this? I don't think so. Throw a 3" chop on it and call it done.
On a photographic side question...Did you use a tilt shift lens to take these photos? Thanks.
