Coming down off the end of a marathon drive is always a little tricky; adapting back into the real world after spending thousands of miles watching for hazards and pushing oneself to the limit. But as Coop notes, "Maybe the fear of death does this to you, but food tasted better, the air smelled sweeter, everything just seemed to be turned up a notch or two higher somehow." And when it's an event like La Carrera Panamericana it must be even more amplified. The racers have been home for a bit and Coop's finished his tale; he also directed us to Kristin Stewart's blog, which is a great chronicle of her experience in a '52 Lincoln Ford. We think the only races that come close to La Carrera's cool factor are the 24 Heures du Mans, Paris-Dakar and the Baja 1000. So get to reading.
