It’s been a couple of weeks since the last one, so lets break back into the archives for another Magazine Time Machine. This issue of Motor Trend featured a lot of information about “The Mexican Road Race” also known as the Carrera Panamericana. There is also some stuff on the 50s era hot rod culture and how jimboys are hopping up their jalopies. As usual with these more-than-double-my-age vintage magazines, this cover art is phenomenal. I’d like to see a modern car magazine use a painting for the cover instead of some overly photoshopped junk-mobile. This issue had a lot of racing coverage that I found fascinating and a really neat ad from Edelbrock (that they honestly should rehash for print ads today). Click the jump to see more.
