Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 November we are invited by Malcolm Forest to visit the Veteran Car club Do Brasil in São Paulo.
We leave at 8.30 AM. Santos in the rain.
It is about 50 miles to our meeting point in São Paulo and we have to cross a mountain pass of 2400 feet.

One of the club members invited us to see his car collection.
He started collecting cars when he was 16 years old.
Beautiful cars and all in the same condition as he found them.
