    Mercmad,appreciate the infos /pix..probably my friend is referrin to his kinda car they were very few made..cannot confirm now,need to speak with him.
    yeah,the rest of the pix are a big bunch of square boxes to me...some interesting rally cars but tipycal Fiat design..they look really aged now...
    i knew he put a datsun engine 2800 cc in the Panamericana car,that why the bigger size....
    thanx again for the cool pix...

    That would explain a lot...i was really scratching my head looking at the engine. A very good engine in fact...and the basis for most of the datsun /nissan inlines .

    junk yard kid,same can be said in US..seen plenty of shiny apparently nice lookin cars but loaded with bondo there,looks a common procedure there too...
    here they fix most stuff with what they have,you'll find a bit of everything....but hey,found also many cars untouched ,so is the same old story everywhere....matter of luck sometimes...

    53 Chevy is unusual, as its a 210 series. Most people that bought convertibles went for the nicer Bel Air.

    Sweet mother of GOD!!!

    I think this is honestly the coolest thread I've ever seen online, and I'm a member of a large handful of car forums. I signed up just because of this thread.

    Sled, thank you so much for taking the time to post these pictures, and shed a little light onto a side of Mexico I never would have thought of. You're like a modern day treasure hunter. I can only dream of having 1/8th your car knowledge and fun!

    That hearse back on page 1 may be the coolest car I've ever seen. I've never seen ANYTHING like that.

    Kevins89,thanx for the kind words ,really....i know there are so many guys outthere as me gettin crazy on this kinda rusted out lifestyle and basically the cool thing is to share it with all the bunch....
    yeah,is so much fun here that i can't describe it..everyday some shit pops up!!
    well,i 'm very lucky..i'm aware of that!
    perhaps a good idea is more upfront to organize some carne asada here in my place for ALL the hambers willin to enyoy Mexico and the cerveza!!
    guess there are some cool stories to share....what da ya think???
