We’re traveling back to Argentina in the early 1980s. The images below are press shots taken for the local launch of the Renault 18, but they do a good job of showing what the country’s automotive landscape looked like over three decades ago. We think these shots were taken in or around Buenos Aires; correct us if we’re wrong.
What car(s) can you identify in these pictures? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage today? We’d go with the Sevel-built Fiat 600 R in the last shot and the Ford Falcon that’s parked in front of it.
