Harri Rovanperä & 1953 Studebaker La Carrera PanAmericana 2010 - Äijä Ratissa!
One can't do anything but admire the smooth driving lines and the capability to use every inch of the road of Harri Rovanperä. The Flying Finn and a Rookie that won overall at the 2010 La Carrera PanAmericana Road Race in Mexico. His winning marginal after 2400 miles and 7 days was no more than 14 seconds!!!
El Buick - Hilaire Damiron - Queretaro 2 - Carrera Panamericana 2009
This was certainly one of our fastest stage on the Carrera Panamericana
2009. We were flying, until we break the clutch on last curve... This costs
us a lot of time, but still, even though, this is the 5th fastest time of
this speed stage !! El Buick's big V8, as powerful as ever, was singing
from one curve to the other, as a dark deep Steinway Black Piano would...
what a great car. As the fans say, the best sounding LCP (La Carrera
Panamericana) car still on the road. See you in 2010...

1953 Studebaker with a souped up 289 Studebaker V8 bored out to 302ci.
This one has a custom intake with side draft Weber carbs. Hear the roar of
a true Studebaker V8 through Avanti style glass-pack mufflers.
Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 with its Hercules JXD engine
was brought back to life and driven 75 miles back to civilization after
being abandoned in the remote Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for
two decades. Now in June 2013 the old war horse is getting some much
needed TLC and a new lease on life. This truck was built on May 23, 1945.
