On a Brazilian farm near Rio de Janeiro, a cemetery of 60 cars from the 90s was found, which was heavily dusty without traffic.

On an abandoned warehouse there are foreign cars Chevrolet Chevette L 1.6 / S and Chevette Junior 1.0 of 1992 and 1993, as well as several cars Volkswagen Gol and Chevy Corsa. The cars are sheltered in the pigsties’ area for a small family of pigs.

All cars are former taxis. They were part of the taxi company of the “king of taxis” Pasqualo da Resurreisau Afonso Rego. Despite the thick layer of dust, you can see that all cars are painted yellow, which has been actively used by Volkswagen since 1977 and after 2 years became the standard shade for taxis in the city of Rio de Janeiro. However, these vehicles have lost their Baltic Blue side stripes and roof lights. Taximeters and special taxi license plates disappeared from the car.

The cars that are now in Xerem mainly date back to 1992 and 1993. They carried passengers for only three years. Taxi drivers drove them from 170 to 200 kilometers a day around the city.

After retirement, the cars went to a warehouse at the Pascoal Taxi Empire headquarters. A legal dispute with the state government prevented the sale of cars at the time, so they simply remained idle for decades. Pashoal died 8 years ago at the age of 92. And the company passed into the hands of 14 heirs. The cabins remained in the warehouse until 2020, when an offer was made to lease the premises.

The Justice Department has authorized the sale of retired taxis. Old cars can be scrapped.
