The Wineries Rally. March 2004
Topic: Old Cars of Argentina
The Wineries Rally


It was early in the morning of March 11th , 2004, when the Second Edition of the Wineries' Rally began. More than one hundred drivers signed up to take part in this fantastic journey throughout 650 kilometers of beauty and good living, all of which were in perfect pavement conditions for as to preserve all of the participant vehicles from any rough path that might damage these art pieces. This outstanding race was organized by the Club de Autos Cl?sicos y Sport of Mendoza together with the Porsche Club Argentino and sponsored by the Mendoza Shopping and the Subsecretar?a de Turismo of Mendoza.

The Escuder?a Norte de Buenos Aires coordinated the organization of the route map, timing and classifying.

To participate in this race vehicles had to be F. I.V.A at least 20 years old, and any Porsche model -for although the route was the same, classification and points were addressed differentially.

This glamorous Historic Sports car race runs through the mystic lands of the beautiful province of Mendoza combining the outstanding flavors of the best wines with a specially traced route where the contestants enjoy some of the world's most beautiful scenes.

Driving side by side to the imponent Andes, witnessing some of the province's cultural and historical treasures such as the Puente del Inca, heading down to the divine Valle de Uco that rises upon the desert surrounded by some of the worlds most imponent mountains, the Andes -La Plata, and the Tupungato dormant volcano. The everlasting top snow crowning the majesty of nature invites us through the main route into an unforgettable drive. Following, the participants headed out the cities' area towards the unspoiled natural woods of poplars, walnuts and a variety of ancient trees. The caravan of outstanding antique cars headed later on to Coquimbito; and after towards their final destination in the city of Mendoza.

The above named wine route began at the Bogegas S?ptima located on the National route #7 in the Lujan de Cuyo region of Medoza. According to the Vineyards, wineries and wines South American Guide, it was christened S?ptima for being the seventh winery of the Catalonian winemaking company Conforniu. This fine winery seattled in Argentina in 2001, and ever since then has produced outstanding quality products. Architectually monumental the stone construction that holds the S?ptima wine production is beautiful, and perfectly combines aesthetics and functionality leading a delightful production of Syrah among other wine varieties.

350 kilometers down this specially traced route, the participants stopped at the Bodega Luigi Bosca, at the end of the first part of the race. Luigi Bosca is one of the oldest wineries in the area, founded in 1901 under the name of Leonicio Arizu, it latter changed its name to Luigi Bosca in 1969 in honor of the newest Italian partner. Till 1981, they didn't entered the national market, for they used to sell all their production to overseas markets such as Italy and the U.S.

The secret to their outstanding wines is that this family run business has always focused on quality; all through their seven fincas they grow over 30 year old vines that are carefully processed to bring up the best qualities of each product.

A must when visiting this winery is to degust the marvelous Luigi Bosca Malbec. This grape, although imported form France more than a century ago, has grown and adapted so perfectly to the Argentine soil that the Argentinean Malbec's are the world's greatest ones. The wine responds perfectly to the slight movements of the crystal expressing its perfect deep color, dark and tall. As sipping this unsurpassed wine the feel of maturity and balance, supporting its full, velvety and juicy body, one's lead into a senses paradise.

The perfect evening for an unforgettable day.

The morning after, that fine antique car caravan headed down through the wonderful Uco Valley to the Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta Winery, were surrounded by gorgeous vineyards they made a variety of control tests with presostato, one demanding regulation test.

The line of beauties, where the road played the role of a catway, headed off to the Bodega La Celia in San Carlos, where the heart and soul of Chile, Germany and Argentina merge together to bring up an amazing winery. Named after the only daughter and heir of the Mendoza landowner Eugenio Bustos, La Celia vineyards are not only house to one of the best wines of the area -in many grape varieties- but also a one of a kind gettaway resort, for the most selected travelers who wish to enjoy the wine in all its vertexes staying at the finca's beautiful rooms.

However, the stop wasn't long enough for this treat.

The last stop before entering Mendoza city for the final race was Bodega La Rural. In 1994 two family run wineries joint together to bring La Rural into life; Miguel Escorihuela Gasc?n and Felipe Rutini brought to life one of the most divine wines in the wine market, Felipe Rutini. Its superb quality makes of this wine one of Argentina's most expensive bottles. This gorgeous finca shows a perfect architecture, a good sense of history and culture through the Felipe Rutini museum and a glamorous taste in life.

The final stop was marked in front of the Park Hyatt Hotal of Mendoza.

The winner team was conformed by Daniel Calarmunt and Cristian Berstchi, who drove an impeccable Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider. Following them arrived the ACA-FIA last year's Cup Champion Alberto Tonconogy and Oscar Yankilevich, in a 1961 Mercedez Benz 300. The third place was won by "Don Segundo Sombra" and Hector Del Buono in a 1956 Thunderbird Ford.

As to the Porsche race points, the winners were Enrique and Susana Carelli in a 1999 Porsche 911 followed by Alberto Tonconogy and Jose Luis Celada in a 1964 Porsche 911 Cabrio.



What an incredible adventure through an unspoiled paradise! Is there a better way to express a sense of outstanding great living?

The 1000 miles XVI Rally, Bariloche,Argentina.2004
Topic: Old Cars of Argentina

The 1000 miles XVI Rally, Bariloche,Argentina.In November,2004


The Sport Automobile Club (CAS) from Argentina would be hosting one of the finest rally events of the season next November in San Carlos de Bariloche. The CAS's 1000 miles XVI edition will begin on November 24th, 2004 and it'll run until the 28th of that month.

This year's rally would relocate now in the beautiful mountains of Bariloche, unlike the previous editions through the Cordoba hills.

This is Argentina's finest international Antique Sports car event, and for many years now it has been included in the world calendar of FIVA (International Federation of Antique Vehicles). This event first took place in 1989 in this very same Patagonian lands. Three years before the first 1000 Argentinean miles, a group of enthusiastic antique car collectors when running the Italian Mile Migle got inspired, and decided to emulate the race in Argentina.

Many years have gone by since that first race, and the CAS 1000 miles grows from year to year. Today, over 180 teams from all over the world Germany, United States, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Netherlands, Brazil and Argentina will be running this year.

Participants would arrive to the exclusive Llao Llao Hotel in San Carlos de Bariloche on the 24th and that would be also the finishing line.

There are three parts to this fabulous race. During the first day participants would drive from Bariloche to Villa La Angostura, Termas de Puyehue (Chile) and back to Bariloche. On the 26th the road would take them to the fantastic San Mart?n de los Andes, Jun?n de los Andes and back to Bariloche. November 27th would be the last competition day and it would be a devine tour through the fantastic locations of the Short Circuit, Villa Catedral and Bols?n then driving back to the Llao-Llao hotel.

That night at the Llao Llao Hotel, the organization would throw a superb black tie dance and dinner where winners would receive their prizes. Plus this year there are new awards such as the cups for new categories: Ladies, journalists, celebrities, debutantes and habitues.

Art and Quantum Physics
Topic: Art
Art and Quantum Physics.
A view of the world by Florncia Rodriguez.Contact information below.


Part III.

Opposites that complement

It is more than common to listen to someone advise you about relationships
and love stating that opposites complement each other. That what you see as
a deep difference is somewhat a nice and interesting ingredient that would
spice up your relationship rather than annul it. As every other aspect of
common knowledge, this statement has a sort of scientific background that
sustains it.
Tracing back the concept to the beginning of the twentieth century, or the
latest years of the nineteenth, we discover that nature itself behaves
through means of complementation of opposites. A quick and easy answer to
what I've stated might be "Dah, night and day, heaven and earth, good and
evil". Well, may be. These are opposites, that's correct, they complement
each other while at the same time the other has to be excluded. And what I'm
trying to say is that complementation stands upon non exclusion, a
contradictory living together.
In the world of physics, an outstanding and revolutionary scientist under
the name of Niels Bohr discovered complementarity, and understood it as a
corresponding principle. Bohr said that light was not either a wave or a
particle, but was both a wave and a particle. Knowledge of both these very
different aspects was necessary for a complete description of light; either
one without the other was inadequate. He and the fellows he worked with
stated later on : "The common division of the world into subject and object,
inner world and outer world, body and soul is no longer adequate...Natural
science does not simply describe and explain nature; it is part of the
interplay between nature and ourselves." This is the contradictory living
together I was talking about before.
Though Bohr was a physicist, and his assumptions about the way our
subjectivity develops were not taken very seriously. Not at least until Carl
Jung retook them. Like Bohr, Jung repudiated the conventional doctrine of
causality. He proposed that all human events interweave on a plane to which
we are not consciously privy, so that in addition to prosaic cause and
effect, human events are joined in a higher dimension by meaning. The
principles of synchronicity and complementarity, bridging as they do the
very separate domains of the psyche and the physical world, apply as well to
the connection between art and physics.
In 1955 Jung states his ideas very clearly while saying: "The common
background for microphysics and depth-psychology is as much physical as
psychic and therefore neither, but rather a third thing, a neutral nature
which can at most be grasped in hints since in essence it is transcendental.
The background of our empirical world thus appears to be in fact an unus
mundus. ... The transcendental psychophysical background corresponds to a
`potential world' in so far as those conditions which determine the form of
empirical phenomena are inherent in it".

But, unlike Bohr, who thought complementarity through means of different
observation points, whether at one the light was wave and the other particle
depending on how we looked at it, Jung states, that because of
complementarity, the unconscious cannot be understood, for it would always
be altered through the observation.
There are some other differences between complementarity and the term used
in psychology which is synchronicity, for it essentially involves the
manifestation of meaning in the sense of an unconscious compensation that
serves an individual's process of individuation toward wholeness. Nonlocal
correlations between quanta, in contrast, are connections between two
physical events, and do not involve a manifestation of inner psychological
meaning.

Nonetheless the differences among these theories -healthy differences by the
way- it is an other aspect that manifests the way quantum physics is not
just a hard science theory, but a breakthrough in the way the whole world is
perceived, a step ahead for civilization in its quest to understand itself
and its surrounding environment.

Buby, the only catalog around.
Topic: Buby, Die Cast, Argentina
Buby.Diecast toys made in Argentina from 1957 to 1995.



Link to Photo Album Buby. The History in Pictures

At the end of 1999, the first Buby catalog was published in Argentina. Buby, The History in Photos, is a fantastic masterpiece written by Lucien C. L. Brousse who unfortunately passed away last year. His book collects all the available information on all Buby collections -except for the Collectors Classics. The main focus on the book is set on a wide range of photographs that illustrate all Buby models, their characteristics and variations suffered by the models throughout Buby's production from 1957 to 1995. This is the only available catalog on Buby's diecast. It features 286 pages filled with very interesting black and white pictures. A fantastic input of the catalog is the Preface written by the owner and creator of the Buby diecasts, Mr. Haroldo "Buby" Mahler.

This great catalog is divided into four sections or parts, each of which with tons of information and exclusive data.
The first part features the Buby collection, meaning the 1:40, 1:43 scale diecasts. A general introduction leads us into a brief history of these models' production, their main characteristics and styles. Following there are two sections specially dedicated to detail all variations in wheels and boxes throughout time. Finishing this first part, all models of this collection are described and detailed photos as reference to those descriptions complete a thorough presentation of the 1:40-1:43 Buby collection.
The second part is dedicated to special vehicles and other toys made by Buby. Here the careful reader would be able to discover a wider picture of Buby's productions, his great care for details and high quality products. Also, here there's a preview of Buby's concern for diecasts collectors, for he developed several models that weren't exactly toys, but more over top quality collectibles.
The third part is fully dedicated to carefully describe the Mini Buby Collection, its history featuring product's variations within details such as wheels and boxes. There are descriptions to all Mini Buby series, their features and characteristics. Plus a section about special packaging cases and blisters.
Last but not least, the fourth part is a great input for all Buby collectors, for in this section there's a detailed list of all documents, catalogs and books that Mr. Lucien Brousse had found on this matter. At the end of this section we find a carefully organized reference number list for all Buby products throughout history.

Without a doubt, this is a masterpiece and a must for all worldwide collectors. It's a careful and precise work that has reunited a great deal of crucial information very valuable for all collectors.

To buy a copy of the Buby Catalog or further information on this matter please contact, Email: The Buenos Aires Toy
