    Ricardo

    how well have the late 20's to the mid 50's cars held up in your country?

    are there still many of them around being used?

    is there any "hot rod" scene in Brazil?

    Thanks for the pictures and history

    Von Rigg,

    During the sixties Brazil became highly industrialized and the Iron and steel industries used old cars to feed their need for steel...But there many enthusiasts of antique cars around here...Many collections...People use to keep cars in their garage instead of riding them...But in the last years more guys are building hot rods and kustoms...Here I send you a link of one of my threads in the HAMB just to give you an idea:

  17. Wow, how did I miss this thread? Thank You Ricardo. Oh, and as an added note that Ford in the Chevrolet parade, probably had a Chevy engine like so many hot rods do!;)
