Cars come in all shapes and sizes and they have been very useful to mankind, although in a way have also been detrimental. But I think I can be more grateful to this invention than the opposite. Cars around the world come in all kinds of shapes, colors, and sizes.
Whether you drive on the right side or the left side, or you have used a car to travel or to commute, to transport or to advertise, to entertain or to provide, cars have countless uses. I remember my very first car with affection, a VW Bora, whom still lives, actually.
Below is a series of photos of cars (including buses and other kinds) from across my travels, enjoy!
Cars around the world
This boat car was seen in Long Beach, WA.
I thought it was quite a unique vehicle to spot. It seems like it both drives and swims, and it can hitch to something else. I have seen bigger vehicles that drive from ground to water, so it’d be interesting to see this one in action.
The sunset can be seen coming from inside this Red Cross car in Pendleton, Oregon.
And this sunset is seen from behind the car driving through the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon.
I have ridden millions of rickshaws during my travels in India. These dusty, bouncy and doorless vehicles are everywhere in this country. We even bought one once but we couldn’t get it to work!
This “fishy apple” (it has a fishtail) sits atop this “Label GMO food” car, found in Portland, OR.
This 100 year old trolley in Astoria, OR was really fun to ride.
This man in India gets gas for his tractor.
This ice cream truck provides free ice cream on a hot day to shirtless guys in Portland, OR. Ok, it was just one shirtless guy.
This is a colorful trash truck seen in the streets of Mexico City.
We made good use of our minivan one day and parked by the park and chilled out with some wine.
I got to take this convertible VW bug for a drive before the owners got rid of it.
This colorful bus is Capt. Jonny’s bus who sells fresh fish across Oregon and Washington.
This was the first time I saw a Russian food cart. We didn’t try it.
The Zombie truck. “Zombies don’t like fast food”.
A beautiful vintage blue car.
This red truck is watching. Do you see its eye?
A well taken care of Jack Daniels prohibition truck.
This bus took me on a Magical Mystery tour around Liverpool, UK to places where The Beatles used to live and play. A fun tour for any Beatles fan.
I like this fire truck in Ahmednagar, India.
Another vintage blue car seen at Seaside, Oregon.
These cars used to be very common in past times in India. This one still lives.
Cars getting ready to go on the ferry to Seattle!
And finally, a red-haired car mechanic in India.
Which one of these cars around the world was your favorite?
