Tim Cahill's Road Fever

Road Fever is one of my favorite books, and I am reading it again right now. In 1987, he and Garry Sowerby set a record by driving the entire length of the Pan-American Highway in 23 days 22 hours 43 minutes. For a flavor of the trip, here is the Popular Mechanics article.

Cool article. I've wanted to drive the Pan-American ever since I saw this car in a museum in Germany. German automotive journalist Fritz B. Busch drove from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego in 1974 in a MK1 Golf (Rabbit). It took him 94 days, but he wasn't in a hurry like Cahill.
