Carrera Panamericana

    I'm trying to finish up some projects. So a few pre built post for you. A little different than my usual.

    I love old school racing. The old cars, the old tracks, the old rally races. They are wonderful. Sure there are races like them today. But they don't have the same soul or charm as back then.

    The Carrera Panamericana was a border-to-border sedan and sports car racing event on open roads in Mexico similar to the Mille Miglia and Targa Florio in Italy. Running for five consecutive years from 1950 to 1954, it was widely held by contemporaries to be the most dangerous race of any type in the world. It has since been resurrected by Pedro Dávila, Loyal "El Tio" Truesdale, and Eduardo "Lalo" de Leon as a classic velocity (speed) rally.
