Luis Eduardo Reyes (born 27 January 1954) is a former Colombian football defender. Born in Candelaria, Valle del Cauca, Reyes played club football for América de Cali. He won six Colombian league titles with América, and helped the club to three consecutive runner-up finishes in the Copa Libertadores. He scored the game-winning goal in the final game of the 1984 championship which secured the club's fourth league title.

her youth in Mexico City. In effect, her aging black Ford (itself a menacing figure) is a time machine: The present becomes ""Barbara's"" 1940s and '50s; and when Juan, to his amazement, becomes her lover, he ""enters"" her past life. It's a delicious, disturbing conceit, and Reyes makes it all work in a deft tale-his first to be translated into English-that's part character study, part comic nightmare, and altogether engrossing and satisfying. Pub Date: Nov. 1st, 1997.

Modelo Antiguo is a novel of love both enigmatic and terrible. The story begins with an older woman about 74, who who wants a driver to ride her around the city in which she has lived her life, as she feels that she is about to die. The cab driver who accepts this position is a sometimes crude, rude, and nefarious young man of about 25. Modelo Antiguo is synonomous for the old woman who is still a virgin, and her car in which they drive. As the two proceed around the city the life of the woman is tenderly, poignantely, and sometimes comically revealed, as is the character of the young man.

Mexico City, 1980s--a young man drives an old woman into the Mexico City of her youth.

This is one of my favorite books. The story begins with an older woman about 74, who who wants a driver to ride her around the city in which she has lived her life, as she feels that she is about to die. The cab driver who accepts this position is a sometimes crude, rude, and nefarious young man of about 25. Modelo Antiguo is synonomous for the old woman who is still a virgin, and her car in which they drive. As the two proceed around the city the life of the woman is tenderly, poignantely, and sometimes comically revealed, as is the character of the young man. The beauty of this book is the love that transpires as these two unlikely souls meet and are transformed. Defying boundaries of class, age, and time, in an intricate weave of past and present, this is a beautiful, believable, love story.

I was very disappointed in this book for many reasons not the least of which is that this novel is about a couple IN Mexico City, but the book is not ABOUT Mexico City. I bought this book mainly because of the title an the blurb by Benjamin Alire Saenz on the cover stating that this book "brings English readers a real taste of Mexico City streets." I have been collecting fiction and nonfiction about Mexico City for over twenty-five years, and this book is not a keeper !

I chose to read this novel because I'm a vintage car fan... but ended up being a mexico city fan, too.
The most interesting thing about this book is the way a romance that seems impossible at first, ends up being the only possible answer, in an impossibly crazy city.
Read it!

Modelo is an excelent novel that satarts slowly seducing you, but towards the end, you are completley blown away by the passion between an elderly virgin and a young taxi driver. A great way to see through the eyes of love a very particular Mexico City.
