Driving the Pan-Am Highway

Driving the Pan-Am Highway

1966 Chevy CorvairThe ultimate road trip is not Route 66, PCH Route 1, or Highway A1A; the ultimate road trip is the Pan-American Highway that begins in Prudhoe Bay in Northern Canada and ends all in Ushuaia at the southernmost tip of South America. The Pan-American Highway is a mix of official roads, unofficial roads, and the Alaskan highway. If you do decide to take the ultimate road trip from North America to South America, there is one important spot along the road that is nearly impossible to cross: the Darién Gap.

Lone Star State Host to Spectacular GoodGuys Event

For any true car enthusiast, the GoodGuys 21st Lone Star Nationals car show was a must see event. This show featured the best of the best and had something for everyone. The Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth was overrun by high shine paint jobs, throaty exhaust, and smiling faces from October 4th-6th by entries and fans alike.

During the pre-1972 only show days, Friday & Saturday (Sunday was open to all American made models and years), classic Chevy lovers got to see over 2,500 hot rods, perfectly restored/maintained classics, muscle cars, and classic trucks.

A cruise is a gathering of classic car enthusiasts who want to show off their rides, enjoy the fine weather, and talk cars with like-minded people. Cruise cars can be any antique, classic, or collectible car that catches eyes and draws admiring stares. From old Ford or Dodge pick-ups to Model Ts, to 1950s wagons, ‘60s muscle cars, and everything in between, cruise cars represent the whole range of American automotive history.

Woodward Dream CruiseThe annual Woodward Dream Cruise in suburban Detroit is a celebration of classic cars and of cruising up and down this classic American highway. The Dream Cruise is an official event, but harkens back to the 1950s and 1960s when young people raced their hot rods and muscle cars and spent evenings cruising with friends.

Car CruiseClassic car cruising is a throwback to the 1950s and 1960s when young people liked to get in their cars and hit the major streets for fun and good times. The movie American Graffiti captured the epitome of cruising back in the day and can show you just what it was like if you were not there to see it for yourself. Kids with nothing else to do were driving up and down the road, showing off their cars, racing each other, flirting, and stopping at the drive-in restaurants for burgers and fries.
