New theme: Car cultures around the world / international street scenes

Cargo tricycle Morocco DockerThis year I’ve been traveling all around the world and that has given me the opportunity to study what kind of cars people in different countries and different continents drive, which is most of the times quite different from what I’m used to at home. Of course I’ve taken a ton of pictures from interesting cars and street scenes, but until now I wasn’t sure what to do with them. Naturally, I want to share them with you so I’ve decided to make an “International street scenes” topic, in which I show you the car cultures in a bunch of different countries across the world, hoping to eventually expand it to every corner of our globe.

As always, I encourage interaction between the regular editors and our readers so wherever you live, if you want to share the kind of cars people drive in your country (or even your neighborhood), if you have funny or interesting pictures of cars, street scenes or anything related to the subject, feel free to get in touch with me and send me your pictures (and if you want, some text to explain your car culture). This way, we can show our other readers from all over the world which brands, models or even which type of car the streets are filled in other cities, countries or continents.

In the next few weeks, I’ll start off with my own experiences in the following places:

Let me know what you think of this kind of post, and if you want to see more of them. And again, if you want to share your pictures of interesting car cultures or street scenes, I’m more than happy to post them here.

About Bart Demandt

Bart is a 34-year old Dutchman who's always had a thing for cars, the automotive industry and statistics. He’s combined these passions by writing about them on CarSalesBase.com. His daily driver is an Alfa Romeo GT because he fell in love with the sound of the 3.2 V6 engine. And just like in a relationship with a woman, high maintenance costs sometimes bring him on the brink of a break-up, but true love will hopefully prevail.

  1. I’m liking what I’m seeing so far, but that might have to do with Morocco. The older French cars that are omnipotent there are right up my alley.

    I’m looking forward to the sequels!

      Hi MWH,
      thanks for your appreciation, I hope you’ll enjoy the other reports just as much!
      I too loved seeing those old Renault and Peugeot models from way back when. My parents drove a Peugeot 504 when I was a baby and they loved that car. Great to see so many are still around, doing what they do best: offer comfortable and reliable transportation. The same goes for the Renault Quatrelle, as an early teenager I used to ride on the rear wheel arch in the back of an R4F4 Fourgonette, so I have many fond memories of that model. I even hoped to spot the old 63-RB-09 somewhere in Morocco (-:

  1. […] be taking a lot of pictures of the street scenes, as I’ve done before in my ongoing car cultures series. Do you want me to test drive some local cars, and which ones? Or do something crazy like […]
