I’ve been spending so much time immersed in car-related stuff lately, I thought I’d write a blog post about the different cars and trucks I saw during my trip to Argentina in February, and hopefully it will help kickstart me into writing a longer, detailed post about the full trip.
If you’re familiar with my blog, you know I’m a huge car nerd. When I’m in new countries, I love to see the different types of automobiles on the roads, particularly the ones you don’t see in the U.S. market. Argentina had not shortage of unique and interesting vehicles. For starters, I spotted this 1961 Renault Dauphine for sale on the street in Buenos Aires.
Some noteworthy hatchbacks….
A Ford Taunus in incredible condition. I had never even heard of this car before but apparently it was produced for European markets and was named after the Taunus Mountains in Germany.
A Ferrari…not sure which model, maybe a 308.
The car spotting wasn’t limited to Buenos Aires. Here’s a few interesting vehicles I saw in Patagonia. Old school VW small pickup:
A small hatchback with some MASSIVE subwoofers. Look at those things. The sub box takes up half the interior.
Also, I was pretty excited to spot this Mitsubishi Lancer EVO V (1998-1999 I believe). The EVO didn’t make it to the United States market until the 8th generation in 2003.
And lastly (for now), check out this mint Fiat (800 coupe I believe). This thing looked incredible!
More Argentina stories and photos (not just cars) coming soon. In the meanwhile, here are my most recent videos with progress on the Fox Body Mustang project, including an interesting update on the trouble shooting of the battery issue.
Installation of the PA Performance Premium battery cable kit
And the most recent, installing a new fuel filter and trying out Steeda’s Tri-Ax Shifter Handle
Thanks for reading, thanks for watching, and I hope you’re staying safe, healthy, and as comfortable as can be given the current state of the world.
