    R.I.P. Rust in Portugal

    If you have been to Portugal you have probably haven't see any hot rods or custom cars. That is because the laws concerning cars are very strict. In a simple form, you can't modify anything!
    Some modifications are permitted but it always involves lots of bureaucracy, time and money.

    So all the old cars are either restored to origin (which is expensive..) or end up in fields, barns or scrapyards.

    R.I.P. Rust in Portugal is a blog I created to show all the rusty classics that could have at least made some cool rat rods.

    I will usually put a link underneath of where I found the pic.
    Most of them are from ads, so it will have more info in the ads.

    I remember going on holiday to portugal as a kid around 92, and the amount of cars dumped at the side of the road was unreal, the most common being beetles, mk1 escorts and reanult 4's, plenty were stripped, i bet you won't find the mk1 escorts there now like that.

    A lot has changed since 92, it's much harder to find any old cars abandoned on the side of the road.
    In the last few years there has been a program where you get money for your old car (much more than most are worth) when you buy a new car and thousands of old cars have been crushed.
