Kombi Recycled as Billboard

19 11 2012

Here are some snapshots I received some days ago from a friend who travels through Costa Rica a lot. A full size T2b microbus on stilts, advertising a local used spare parts dealer. The photos were taken earlier this November in the small town of Buenos Aires in Costa Rica, directly on the Carretera Interamericana, or Interamerican Highway. Apparently that is the part of the Panamericana that connects North and South America and runs from Mexico to Panama. One realizes only on second sight that only of the front and right side of the bus are still there, the rest was chopped off. Perhaps a wreck from an accident, re-cycled as advertising billboard? Looks actually like a European or North America late bay, not like the Brazilian ones. Thanks to Siggi for these cool pictures. If you think about travelling Costa Rica and are looking for someone to organize the tour, check out Siggi’s travel blog.
