The Pan American Highway links Alaska with Chile — except for a small stretch between Panama and Colombia called the Darien Gap — and is a classic among overlanders. My partner Coen and I haven’t driven the North and Central American stretches, but we can say this about the PanAm in South America: It’s paved, easy to drive, and does have its charms. It also crosses a number of countries, so in relatively little time you’re exposed to a variety of landscapes and cultures.

However, if you want a bit more adventure, and to actually experience South America rather than just pass through it, take the first turnoff and hit the countryside. After having traveled on this continent for more than 7 years, covering some 82,000 miles, we’d argue that the following are among the roads you’ll want to put on your South American road trip bucket list.

Much has been written about the Death Road, especially with regard to cycling it with a tour agency out of La Paz. Since Bolivia built a highway around it, the road is largely void of traffic and mostly used for tourism. We loved driving here and stopped frequently to feel the solitude and take in magnificent views of the rainforest. The Death Road starts at an altitude of 9,800 feet, winds down into the rainforest, and ends at the town of Coroico at 5,000 feet. If you're going to drive it, leave after 11am, when the cyclists have finished.

More than 600 miles of gravel road wind through scenery of rainforests, glaciers, volcanoes, fjords, and rivers. This is the only road connecting northern and southern Chile. It was largely constructed under Pinochet's regime in the 1980s—initially it bore the name of Carretera General Augusto Pinochet. We loved driving the Carretera Austral, as we embrace nature and wilderness and don't mind having to do without fresh food for a couple of days. In February there's a fair chance you'll stumble across a rodeo.

Some 3,000 miles separate La Quiaca in the north and Rio Gallegos in the south. We photographed llamas and vicuñas on the altiplano and stopped for wine tours in Cafayate and Mendoza. After the popular stretch through the Lake District down to El Bolsón, we traversed desolate Patagonian plains where ñandú (a relative of the ostrich) raced alongside our Land Cruiser, and we spotted foxes and came across herds of sheep crossing the road. Go now, as Argentina is paving Ruta 40 as I'm writing, which will facilitate driving but take away the sense of adventure and magic that Ruta 40 is so famous for.

This 800km road runs from Porto Velho to Manaus. Like the Transamazônica, the BR-319 was built by Brazil's military regime in the 1970s with the intent to open up the Amazon rainforest for economic purposes. However, as it was one of the first roads through the Amazon, know-how was minimal, and the road was built on swampland. This, together with annual floods that washed away dozens of bridges, contributed to the road falling into disuse. Nowadays, all trucks go by boat, and only the adventurous attempt it, camping rough along the way. To give you an idea of the challenge: It took us five days to complete the 800km.

We tend to think of American marques as being producers of cars first and foremost for the U.S., at least historically, but even decades back there were plenty of models that The Big Three released only overseas. Ford has had a distinct lineup in Europe going back to 1925 with its British and German divisions, while General Motors has had a controlling stake in Opel starting in the late 1920s. The Buick brand now has more models on offer in China than in North America, and a good number of them cannot be had here in the States in any form.

When it comes to coupes, we think plenty of our readers are familiar with the European Ford Escort, especially in Cosworth form, but here are a few obscure ones that we never received in the U.S.

A combination of Chevrolet and Opel parts-bin items of various sizes, the Chevy Opala was a coupe based on the Opel Commodore and Opel Rekord mechanicals using engines from GM's North American lineup. Sold in Brazil, the Opala seemingly melded Chevrolet and Opel design language in equal measure, appearing to be an odd-looking Nova to the two dozen Americans who saw it when it was new, and an odd-looking Opel Rekord to a slightly larger number of Germans who encountered it on the streets of Sao Paulo.

Available in two-door, four-door, station wagon and shooting brake form, the Opala became one of the most popular Chevrolet offerings in Brazil from the start of production in 1969. Engines included the ancient 250 cid straight-six engine displacing 4.1 liters and borrowed from trucks, and the four-cylinder Chevrolet 153 engine displacing 2.5 liters. The Opala had a long lifespan, with production ceasing only in 1992 when it was replaced by the extremely prolific Kadett, which we received as a Pontiac LeMans.

Why didn't we have this? The Opala used technology that quickly became outdated, and the North American Chevy lineup did not make sense to reproduce in Brazil.

How will I be able to explain this at classic car shows? "Not Impala. Opala . It was Brazil's most popular Chevy."

For the first time in 40 years fans in South America will witness Glenn Hughes – “ The Voice of Rock “, perform a full concert of Deep Purple classics live!

Glenn Hughes played his last concert with Deep Purple on March 15th, 1976 at Liverpool’s Empire Theatre. That night, the British bassist and vocalist walked away from one of history’s truly game-changing rock phenomena and never looked back… until now!

He arrives in South America during April 2018 for his special tour “ Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple ” for 11 powerful shows encompassing Chile , Argentina and Brazil .

“I’m incredibly excited to go out and play songs like Burn , Mistreated , Stormbringer and Getting Tighter , as well as some of those older songs that helped define the genre. I can assure you a concert that will blow your mind.”

12th Teatro Municipal – Valparaiso, CHILE
14th Club Chocolate – Santiago, CHILE
15th Teatro Flores – Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA
17th Centro de Convencoes, Sala Planalto – Brasilia, BRAZIL
19th Cine Theatro Brasil – Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL
21st Tropical Butanta – Sao Paulo, BRAZIL
22nd Studio Mirage – Limeira, BRAZIL
24th Opera de Arame – Curitiba, BRAZIL
26th Porao do Alemao – Manaus, BRAZIL
28th Bar Opiniao – Porto Alegre, BRAZIL
29th Circo Voador – Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL

With one of the heaviest repertoires known for rock, with sound and lighting production values befitting the legend, the performance of classic Deep Purple songs by Glenn Hughes are destined to write a new page in the history of rock.
