La Carrera Panamericana... The Board Game
While running the La Carrera Panamericana is no game and not for the light hearted, there is still a way to put your skills up against other drivers as you travel the Pan American Highway through Mexico. It's the 1950s CARRERA PANAMERICANA MEXICAN BOARD GAME! Well, they're very hard to find but it looks like keen fun to me. You can rest assured I will be looking for one while in Mexico. (As if I'll have time to go shopping. LOL) I saw one for sale on eBay but one hundred dollars plus shipping seems a tad high even though it has got to be more fun than Monopoly.
The description is as follows; Rare and original board game includes: board, five tiny plastic cars (game chips) and two dices. The 13 x 13" board features beautiful graphics of racing cars, drivers and the cities and small villages visited by the drivers during the road race. Made in Mexico by an unknown manufacturer under license by the organising commitee of the race.
I aslo found some very old collectable La Carrera Panamericana post cards of the original Lincolns which would be a nice addition to anyone's collection.
