I am aware of some Teslas in Brazil but have never seen any on the wild.

I wish I could take pictures while driving the truck. I saw a Prius with a pretty loud fart can and three antennae as it passed me today. You really do see it all out here.

On my way to college I saw 3 Tesla Model 3s and a late 90s white Metro all on the highway.

My friend's dad has a spotless Metro XFI manual ('91 or '92) that he gets around 50 MPG out of with no hypermiling. We have a joke going around that if he weighed as little as I do (I'm a skinny dude lol) he'd get as good gas mileage as I do in my Civic. Honestly though I'm sure he could smoke me if he tried, but he doesn't.

Took this picture in the day I got my driver license.

It's a Gurgel BR-800, and it was meant to be some sort of replacement for the VW Beetle.

Here in Manitoba Canada my whole family went thru a series of Renaults - 8s, 10, 12, Le Car, my dad even bought a 16 and it lasted about 6 months then the Head gasket went. We were the first in our neck of the woods to know about the advantages of front wheel drive in the winter! Very poor heat but fwd!!

I like the front of the new ones, just not that rear end! Prime rear end is much better. No pun intended.

I still see some Argentinian Renault 12 once in a while.

I have only seen one Honda Acty of that generation in 2009 near the Vivaldão soccer stadium in Manaus, but was unable to take a picture. And that was a van instead of a truck.
