Museo Pachamama is a private museum created by a sculptor to pay tribute to pre-Incan peoples of the Tucumán region of northern Argentina, the Diaguites and Quilmes among them. I took my time along its undulating walkways and stone sculptures dedicated to Mother Earth. —

Riding a criollo horse from Estancia Jesuítica las Carreras, my stop for the night near Tafí del Valle, was the first of a series of fun detours arranged by Christian Paul Delaporte of Antique Tour Experience, as we drove his Ford Model A Phaetons heading northwest from San Miguel de Tucumán to Salta, Argentina. —

Estancia Jesuítica Las Carreras

Near Tafí del Valle, I mounted an Argentinian criollo horse (small and wiry) and followed a worker from Estancia Jesuítica las Carreras into the misty, rolling hills of the three-century-year-old cattle ranch, which was built by Spanish Jesuits in the early 18th century and has been in the Frías Silva family since 1779. My Andean road-trip adventure with Antique Tour Experience appears soon in the automotive section of Postmedia newspapers and Driving.ca. —

Estancia Jesuítica Las Carreras

Near Tafí del Valle, I stopped for the night at Estancia Jesuítica las Carreras, a cattle ranch built by Spanish Jesuits in the early 18th century. The Frías Silva family acquired the land in 1779, and have added a comfortable ten-room inn and a Jesuit-themed museum. The ranch also has its own cheese factory dating to the 18th century, which draws tourists from across Argentina for the manchego, a version of the Spanish classic made from a Jesuit recipe. The manchego is sold in small batches only within a short radius of the ranch.

Estancia Jesuítica Las Carreras

The trees all but disappeared as Christian Paul Delaporte’s Ford Model A reached Tafí del Valle, a vast high-altitude plateau that’s a holiday destination for residents of San Miguel de Tucumán. From there, a series of ridges and valleys, called Valles Calchaquies, begin, expanding like waves for 300 kilometres to the Andes and Pampean mountain ranges. Delaporte painted this Phaeton “Washington Blue” – a colour original to the era – and the suspension felt as smooth as it must have been rolling off Ford’s production line near Buenos Aires, on December 28, 1928.

Beyond San Miguel de Tucumán, the view opens into flat acres of sugarcane fields and lemon orchards – industries that built northern Argentina and are still its economic mainstays. On the drive northwest heading toward the Valles Calchequies, I snapped this farmer from a terraza while we paused for a mid-morning snack of mate (Argentina’s classic energy tea) and coffee with biscuits.

Christian Paul Delaporte bought his first Ford Model A, this red Phaeton, from Señor Manuel O. Bravo for $a 105.000 – less than $5,400USD – back in the eighties, and set about restoring it with his own hands using all original parts. Etched onto the motor is the date that it rolled off Ford’s US-based production line: February 14, 1929. Its chassis was built at Ford’s Argentinian plant located then in Avellaneda. Today, as the owner of Antique Tour Experience, Delaporte arranges daytrips as well as multi-day journeys by Model A across Northern Argentina.

Enroute to Salta by classic Ford Model A Phaeton, Christian Paul Delaporte, owner of Antique Tour Experience, took us at first to this vintage sugar mill, where we learned that for centuries sugar and lemons have been economic mainstays of Tucumán province, where Delaporte lives. His father’s first job arriving from France after WW2 was repairing machinery used in the sugar industry.

You can’t see it but behind my wonderful chauffeur, Juan Manuel López Márquez, I’m perfecting my royal wave. On a recent trip from San Miguel de Tucumán to Salta, northern Argentina, fans whistled, smiled and waved back wherever we drove. But it wasn’t me attracting all the attention, it was my ride that day: a 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton. Christian Paul Delaporte, the owner of Antique Tour Experience, is slightly ahead driving his other Phaeton, a blue model from 1928, which I also got to ride in.
