As we were riding South through Mexico, I observed how the typical vehicle on the street was also evolving. If the standard car in the northern states like Baja California or Sonora was a big american built SUV or sedan showing slight damages on body, once we reached the center of the country the cars were downsized to the standard european measurements. Only here and there there was a US car, most of them bearing japanese or korean names. Plus some french, but not many, and a lot of VW, built in Mexico. I was happy to see again two of my favorite brands: Seat and Opel (although rebadged as Chevrolet and bearing a funny looking round shaped badge to fit the space of the original Opel badge).

Sadly, there was no Mercedes-Benz, Audi or BMW. I think we only saw two of each in Mexico City, but that’s it!

Also, in center and southern states there were A LOT of VW Type 1 (bug) and Type 2 T2 (bus). Taxis, private vehicle and commercial, they were everywhere.

As we started riding through Mexico, we also saw something that was to become very common: a pick-up truck with people riding in the cargo area. In the second picture, you can see the mexican variant of a school bus!

Besides that, here and there we could find some old Dacia cars, made in Romania!214 car

Plus, plenty of vehicles with three wheels, for passengers or freight

There is also an unanswered question: everywhere people were driving with the hazard lights (blinkers) on. Buses, trucks, cars and motorcycles as well. Still I am trying to find out whether they were all signaling something and I wasn’t able to get their message… or this is more of a matter of style.
