Vintage cars litter the streets of Lima creating a strange potpourri..

Since I arrived in Lima 2 months ago one thing that has continuously caught my eye are the automobiles.  It’s a strange and cool assortment.  It is like Cuba here as many vintage rides have survived, some more graciously then others to be sure, but these aren’t your garden variety Cuban 1950’s American classics.  This is a much stranger breed.  It’s mostly 1970’s Japanese models as well as a motley assortment of others that look like they may have been commandeered by the Shining Path.  Every time I venture out I have head-turning moments as these funky rides are ubiquitous, hilarious and rare.  And since I hail from the Motor City, thats something.

Another cool aspect to this is that what some folks here people are using for everyday rides would be used for show cars and Sunday cruisers in the US.
