Tourism, classic cars and a curious list

Tourism, classic cars and a curious list

London, Jan 15 (Prensa Latina) The automobile and tourism industry are joining hands today due to the predilection of many people in the world for owning or simply traveling in a classic or antique car.

Countries like Cuba have an excellent support for this pastime, and especially in the streets of Havana, you can see many vehicles of this type as escaped from time.

However, there is a whole British history with strong bases in many parts of the world, which is why admiring pieces of this spirit is quite a challenge.

Then a journalistic story appeared here that brought us a curiosity about motorsports, particularly what is related to the aforementioned vehicles.

An article in a specialized car magazine in London, the idea was transformed overnight into a whole project, related to illustrator Helge Jepsen and the editor Michael Kockritz, as reported at the time by the London BBC.

That pair discovered the nicknames of 99 classic and racing parts and then put together a guide to the names of the most famous.

Hence, Formula 1 joined the rescue of these cars to save them in the future, and took them back to make a stop.

First and foremost is the famous VW Beetle/Kafer -Herbie or Beetle-, star of countless Hollywood movies since it first appeared in Cupid Motoring in 1968. Herbie is a VW Beetle who always wears the number 53.

With his magical powers, Herbie can drive itself, scale walls, and even win races against cars that are significantly faster.

Others such as the highly emblematic Fiat 600, the Morris from the United Kingdom, or the mini-cooper, among others, could also be added to this British list.
