In 1984 the Dakar Rally was still in Africa, and movies about it featured British narrators rather than a dubstep soundtrack. If you long for such things as I do, pop an Aspirin and curl up to the fuzzy glow of Range Rovers chasing Porsche 911s over river crossings in this vintage video.

It's rally action, but with a decidedly more soothing presentation than the energy drink promotional clips we get these days. Besides, where else will you hear a Lada Niva described as one of Porsche's "main rivals?"
