About ten years ago, I was browsing a street vendor’s merch in Rosarito Mexico. By pure chance, I found a post card featuring the image above (and below in higher resolution). The back of the card simply read, “III La PanAmericana.” That’s all I have on this extremely weird example of Mexican ingenuity.
If I had to guess, I would say the barge started off as a Cadillac. From there, you are on your own… and I’m hoping one of you can clue us in on just exactly what we are looking at. Did our brother’s from the south finish the grueling Pan American in ’52? If not, did they even survive?
