About Abadal

The Abadal was a Spanish car manufactured between 1912 and 1923, named after Fracisco Abadal. Considered a fast luxury car, it was closely patterned on the Hispano and offered in two models. One had a 3104cc four-cylinder engine while the other had a 4521cc six-cylinder engine.

Soon after the inception of the Abadal line, the Belgian company Imperia began building Abadals under license as Imperia-Abadals. In 1916 Abadal acquired the Buick agency, and Barcelona-built Abadals after that year had Buick power units, and featured custom coachwork. These cars were called Abadal-Buicks. M. A. Van Roggen (formerly of Springuel) took over the Belgian operation soon after, and built around 170 more Impéria-Abadals. Among the models produced were a 2992cc 16-valve four-cylinder OHC sports model and three prototype 5630cc straight-eights. The company ceased automobile production in 1923.

Francisco Abadal (nicknamed Paco) was a Hispano-Suiza salesman and racing driver in Barcelona. He began this enterprise in 1912, and upon its ceasation, F. Abadal became an agent of General Motors in Spain. General Motors plans in 1930 related to a prototype named Abadal Continental never materialized.

The Varying Drivers License Requirements Around the World

Minimum driving ages, the number of passengers young drivers can have with them at any time, the times of day that drivers under the age of 18 can drive…

These all vary depending on where young motorists are driving. They vary, even, across the United States.

For instance, in Maine, motorists under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to have any passengers with them as they drive for the first 180 days after they obtain their licenses. In Alabama, motorists under the age of 18 can have one passenger with them.

And that’s just one example of the differences in driving license requirements from one part of the country to the next. The differences are even more pronounced when comparing one country to another. Minimum driving ages vary widely across the world. While most states in the United States allow youngsters to earn their learner’s permits at the age of 15, many other countries require their residents to be much older before they get behind the wheel of a car.
