Today after our usual Sunday late breakfast of eggs, potatoes, fresh bread, papaya and coffee, we drove into Friburgo for the ‘first Sunday of the month’ meeting of the ‘old car’ owner’s club….. I sure it has a more glamorous name but I don’t know it. Anyway a group of men (women I didn’t see so am assuming…), mostly old (er) men meet once a month to show off their cars and to discuss ‘old car’ issues. As you can tell I am making this up because I don’t know why they meet or what they discuss - I can only imagine. I did get that they meet in Friburgo the first Sunday and also during the month they go to other towns to show off their cars. Today we saw only 6 cars, one of those was Camillo’s 1970s version MP.
This is a reproduction of a 1950s MG (with a Volkswagen Beetle engine and bucket seats made for midget (butts), windows that don’t quite close and a top you need to put up at any hint of rain because it doesn’t fit right and can take 10 minutes to get closed). For all its shortcomings we have a lot of fun driving the back roads and the downtown streets of Nova Friburgo with our little sports car – the little boys and the old men stop to stare when we pass by.
back to the car club……
one photo is worth a 1000 words
I just know the owner has to have a James Dean hair cut, a tattoo on his muscled arm and a pack of cigs rolled in his t-Shirt sleeve…. okay so I’m showing my age but I did like this truck.
All in all a nice Sunday afternoon.
