I love how so many of the cars in South America are of the big old US gas guzzling type, obviously not from an environmental point of view but from the change it makes from the generic cars you see about these days.

Classic American taxi in Venezuela

This dodge Taxi is a great example, we had a particularly interesting Sunday taxi ride to the bus station in a bashed up Dodge complete with a chain and pad locked boot, flat tire and suspected intoxicated taxi driver!
