Back In The day
There used to be a time when everyone including the auto manufactures were proud to let the world know they had been a part of history having competed in La Carrera Panamericana. Every manufacture who ran La Carrera Panamericana had commercials in major publications talking about their heroic endeavors. And it was not just auto manufacturers either as major spark plug companies were also proud to let it be known their products also withstood the test of what was and still is, one of the most grueling races ever known to the world of auto racing.
I can only wonder how long it will be until we see more commercials like this again. How cool it would be to see a Ford ripping up a corner in Mexico while I watch the large screen.
