Destination Curitiba, capital of the state of Paraná.
The Automobile Museum near Barigüi park.
Our penultimate bus stop during the tourist bus tour in Curitiba was the stop at Barigüi Park. Here we took some rest, after the intensive walks through other parks, and we had some snacks in a small restaurant in the park. The weak sun rays warmed us a little; fortunately, it was dry. This weather type strongly resembles the weather type I was used to in The Netherlands, at the end of April and in early May, when it is spring. Much too cold for many Brazilians. Our eyes caught a museum at the other side of the road. We could not resist the temptation to visit this museum.
The race car of Emerson Fittipaldi.
He became world champion in this car in 1974.
In 1968, the Clube de Automóveis e Antiguidades Mecânicas do Paraná (CAAMP) was founded by a small group of car fanatics Eight years later, in 1976, the Museu de Automóvel was opened. The museum hosts about 150 oldtimers, and they are exhibited in a continuous rotation manner over the eighty spaces available. The cars are categorized among the themes antique, vintage, milestones, and classic. These shiny cars are exhibited in a very clear way, waiting patiently for the interested visitors.
