Rally Ho! Peking to Paris Motor Challenge

Today is day four of this year's Peking to Paris Motor Challenge, and participants are winding their ancien régime racers along the foothills of the Grand Tetons Altay range. They're heading along a dusty trail from Erenhot, China to Sainshand in southeastern Mongolia, on a route that would choke a Lamborghini to within a kilometer of its life. Thanks to the intrepid colinjmbrown, we can get a look at some of the old iron horses as they were preparing to set off on the nearly 12,000 mile trek. If they don't meet with some catastrophe or other, the cars will pull into Paris's Place de la Concorde on June 30. Here's hoping they have plenty of yak dairy products and axle grease.
