Report 22 & 23 November
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.
On our way it is getting dry and at 10.30 we arrive in São Paulo.
São Paulo is the biggest city of South-America with more than 20 million inhabitants.
It is also the economic centre of Brazil.
We are cordially welcomed by our classic car friends at the first fuel station that we pass in São Paulo.
A picture near the famous Ipiranga Museum is a must of course.
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.
This weekend there is a great car show in the town: The Auto Esporte Expo Show.

We are invited to visit this show with the Model T.
The Model T gets a special spot between all the beautiful polished cars.
The next day, Sunday, our friends pick us up at the hotel and offer us a emblem of the Veteran Car Club Do Brasil.
We immediately mount it on the Model T.
Our friends of the Veteran Car Club Do Brasil escort us to the border of the city.
There we say goodbye.
These two days in São Paulo were a beautiful finish of this part of our World tour through South-America.
Friends of the Veteran Car Club Do Brasil: thanks for that.
