When Jaime Ponciano saw this newspaper photo of Rua Augusta taken in September 1965, he didn't think twice... he immediately customized the image by colouring the Wolkswagen beetle in a light-green hue that reminisced the one my Father bought circa 1978. When I met Jaime in 1979, I used to drive it around.
Jaime grew up watching 'Sitio do Pica Pau Amarelo'... as he was a born-mimic he used to talk like Zé Carneiro to everyone's delight (hilarity)...
Jaime had a pop-culture bent... he followed the sports news and kept his eye on photos like this one above depicting Vampeta & his colleagues Odvan & Serginho.
Boxing was not exactly Jaime Ponciano's cup of tea but there was an element of novelty & esthetics in it that fascinated him.
