Is Argentina An Unlikely Place For A Car Museum?

You wouldn’t necessarily expect Argentina to be one of the world’s most petrolisti friendly places. This South American country is one of the places with the richest histories, of recorded motor cars in the world. Perhaps you’ll be familiar with a chap named Juan Manuel Fangio, or the Formula 1 ace Carlos Reutemann, but would you expect that cars roamed the roads of Argentina since 1904, when the first Daimler was imported?
Or even that loads of Ferraris, Bugattis, Maseratis and Alfa Romeos were imported into the country to race in countless events held from the ’30s until the ’60s?
If you fancy a break between tangos, and feed the need to enjoy some gasoline-fueled activities in Buenos Aires, just keep in mind that the Automóvil Club Argentino, otherwise known as the A.C.A., is definitely worth a visit and deserves your attention.
