Around 1950's some oil petroleum company executive crashed his car at the El Tigre (Anzoategui) crossroads and the authorities took the car and placed it over a platform and wrote 'VEA' (watch). It was there for almost 40 years, and it became calling 'Vea crossroads'

Cheapest cars program:
VW Beetle and Renault 4 
"Guido Steinvorth (VW Venezuela's owner) takes part in the popular car project launched by the government of President Rafael Caldera (1969-1974). It qualifies, along with the 'Renoleta' Renault, popularly called 'Haydeé' (minister of economy's name) , with the VW which, in its simplest version, received the official name 'Negro Primero' (Independence hero), from which many will be sold (Bs. 8,000) eight thousand bolívares ($ 1,800 approx). It was the beetle itself simplified to the maximum to achieve an unbeatable price for sale to the public. They are still on the road!"

In recent years Iran and Venezuela governments signed a joint venture to built Iran Khodro in Venezuela. Venirauto.
Saipa 141 became Turpial (venezuelan's bird) and Samand, Centauro.

As the years went passing by, the bureaucratics and corruption, only few people could get one of those, the rest remain in the assembly plants parking lots

The same was with Chinese government joint venture to build Chery cars
Chery A3 became Chery Orinoco (biggest river in Venezuela)
Chery J1 became Chery Arauca (borderline with Colombia).

The same reason that Venirauto cars, Chery was hard to find

The Chinese and the Iranian cars are for the 'connected' people, and they resale them for 3 or more of their value, so they're so few in the streets, and a lot of them rotten in parking lots.
