The old Austin Truck that I had posted a couple of days ago has gotten a lot of clicks already. So I have decided to share some more classic cars that I have encountered along the Panamericana with you. Also visit my german blog post for another selection of classic panamericana vehicles. For links to more photos scroll down to the bottom of this post.
Volkswagen Beetle in Guanajuato, a daily runner by the way.
Pretty stylish company car of 1886 cafe & bakery in Austin, Texas.
Along the road in Texas, 1960? 1975? 1980? No! The picture was taken 2011.
One of many VW's in Mexico.
A retired Dodge pick-up truck in Arizona.
A Buick in Arizona.
Upside down, probably to use its organs. In the desert in southern Arizona.
Another desert find of Arizona.
An another one.
The Arizona way of car recycling.
Pretty cool RV. Arizona, USA.
My very first car was a Triumph Spitfire like the yellow one in front of the home made buggy.
In the Canadian Rockies.
This was an interesting find: A former Swiss Army Unimog, now in Alberta. I was waiting in front of the store for a while to get to talk to the owners about the history and how the beast found its way from a Swiss Military warehouse to Canada. But no one seem to show up, so I left and just took the picture.
More Route 66.
One of the many Gringos in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
And another Gringo in Mexico.
