I have been watching this one for a week or two. I jokingly encouraged my brother, Dan, to purchase it since the La Carrera Panamericana race is on his bucket list. I think he was a little short on cash. :!!:

This from my buddy who follows the Carrera closely and lives in the area...

"Yes I'm familiar with Euro Latino, This is one of two race shops in San Miguel de Allende. At the peak of the Carrera, probably between 2008 and 2012 they built many cars, mostly Falcons and Mustangs. They generally had three of their cars in the race. The other shop in San Miguel De Allende has better quality and they won the race twice. This car has been on sale for at least four years and is not built to the current standards. Carlos Castillo from Aguascalientes sold his car a year ago for around 45k. And it was a lot better than this car. "


BTW San Miguel de Allende is another of the beautiful colonial cities in central Mexico. It was named Travel and Leisures World's Best City in 2017. It has attracted a large population of Americans and Canadians who live there year round.
