Working with Martyn Schorr and the Sarasota (FL) Café Racers car guy lunch group, Ramin founded the Tehran Café Racers five years ago. Active satellites in Isfahan and Shiraz, Iran followed that group. To celebrate the Fifth anniversary, 40 members of the Tehran Café Racers participated in a road rally that was covered by a Latin American TV network, above. A restored U.S. Army Jeep took over the lead at one point, below. It competed last year in the 1000-KM Tehran Caspian Rally.
Rare aluminum-bodied Citroen Mehari, above, was assembled in Iran in the 1960s-1970s. Another rare vehicle to be found in events like road rallies is the go-anywhere Mercedes-Benz Unimog, below.
Buick’s fastback Riviera, above, is a rare sight in Iran and this one has been restored to high standards. There are a number of vintage Mercedes-Benz SLs in the Tehran Cafe Racers. Here are some enroute to the finish lunch at the Afshar restaurant, below.
