Having heard of this event several times before, I was very excited to go, and let me tell you I was not disappointed.
It was a grand reunion of vintage cars, Buicks, GMSs Dodges, Mustangs’, VMWs, all from the 60′ and 70′. The oldest I saw was a ’63!!! Let me show you some pictures.
The interesting and probably best part is that most of these cars are still in use and the owners just come and park them here for the exhibition. And to tell you the truth, I was not aware that there was so much people with vintage car passion in Guatemala.
This time it was held in the Mars field (campo de Marte) but I have also heard that it is made in San Cristobal and Antigua.
These cars are a demonstration that a machine can be so much more than a tool and in this case, more than a simple mean of transportation. It is taking an automobiles to the next level, art!
Having this in mind, I give you the following Limmerick
Although I am inside, a machine that sets me free
wheels and engine that become an extension of me,
It’s my passion
and also fashion.
After you see this beauty, won’t you agree?
To finish up my blog post, I would like to share with you my favourite car in the exhibition. I like it not only because the model is remarkable and it makes me think it is a toy car, but also because of the delicate details on the front.
Thank you for reading!
