That's an early Gol 1000, with that Renault-designed CHT engine made by the local Ford branch. BTW even though it has some adaptation for a disabled driver, it's not automatic.



This 2nd-generation Gol is also fitted with a CHT, but already with a throttle-body injection



Not so easy to spot one with the 16-valve 1.0L engine in such a fairly good condition nowadays...



Finding a Parati with the same engine is even harder...






7-Belo is a very popular candy in Brazil

Believe it or not, that's a '95 Itamar. Spotted at the parking lot of a supermarket where my mom usually goes.

It's a shame they didn't pull those quarter panels together (It would have been so easy), and use the windshield frame for the front bulkhead.

That Jaguar E-Type reminded me that Simca 8 rebuilt around a Beetle frame that one of my uncles used to have.
