From a time when people did what they wanted and took responsibility for it. Love that era. Thanks for sharing.

Gotta love the background music... reminds me of a trip to Baja in the late 60's in a pristine '60 Desoto that came back looking like a refugee from the crusher..... Here's a link to all the Studebakers that ran in the '54 Pana www.studebakerracing.com/internat2.html

In the late eighties, I worked at Antique Automotive in San Diego, we had a 54 merc or lincoln that was all restored in the showroom and had raced at the panamerican race, if I remember, the engine had been built by Vic Edelbrock for the race, the car was a pale yellow but I cant remember if it had a black or white roof, I know we sold the car to a collector , but I cant remember who purchased it.

Link to a video my Dad shot from the 1954 La Carrera Panamericana.
My Dad was a crew member for the Stroppe Lincoln team for the '54 La Carrerra Panamericana. Footage was taken from one of the team backup/chase cars and from various stages of the race
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5R8Z8mPaIjs

Thinking of adding background music. Perhaps 'Hot Rod Lincoln' and 'La Bamba'

These are shots of Portland, Oregon's Len Sutton with his 1954 entry, he crashed while attempting to miss a herd of cattle in the road. He suffered a broken vertebrae and was flown to a Mexico City hospital, for a body cast!
