I’m currently working at Laguna Verde Nuclear Power plant in Veracruz Mexico. There is a huge port here where they ship out tons on VWs. Nearly 50% of the shipments leaving the Port of Veracruz are Volkswagen produced at the Puebla plant to the NW. I’ve seen a few massive ships like the Hoegh Autoliner in the past.

Hers a few photos from the zocalo and some other funny and interesting cars.

Few pics from the port after work today. I’ve always been fascinated by cartels, the CJNG cartel is who runs Veracruz and this port. Needless to say, I keep my nose clean down here.

My sister in law works at the VW Puebla Plant; having visited i can attest the VW scene is cray cray in Mexico; all of the MEX variants of cars they have vs what we have really blew my mind. Anyone ever hear of the GOL (not golf)? The classico? Tons of old school beetles; they STILL use the original beetle as a cab in Mexico City. All sorts of interesting VW Vans, VW Things, the list goes on.

While half the cars down there seem to struggle with remaining usable at all - indeed, many cars reverse lights are the turn signals, the headlights flash when the brakes are hit, i have no idea how some of the situations i've seen happen in the first place - there are some pretty well done cars; mostly the MK4 generation is pretty neat down there. Lots of jettas

Where I come from that’s a Nissan Sunny B13 aka Sentra. Never heard of a tsuru.

The Tsuru (sentra in the states?) could be the unofficial car of Mexico. Like 90% of cabs I’ve been in down here are Tsuru’s. I have tomorrow off so I’ll try to snag a few pics of the Classico as I see them often. I’m not sure what the % of VWs on the road are here but it’s high.

So just after I was typing my last response on the bus ride home from work, I looked out the window and counted 2 VW Classico and like 8 Tsuru, half were cabs. Haha

I saw a Seat this morning and a R8 this afternoon but no photos.
Took a few pics today and last night while walking around. A new Suzuki Jimny? Mk2 golf, gt4 hiding in the back at the Porsche dealer, Clasico Jetta and a less than road worthy shell from an old Bug. The Up! Is the most interesting names VW
