After much stress, hours of searching, and countless overseas calls done by Bill I got word today that our sweet, sweet baby has been found. We now have a Mongol rally car! I’d love to name the mad machine, but I’ll have to wait to see the beauty in person and learn more about her personality. Temporarily, at least, I’ve dubbed her “Apple Pie” since she is now American, and is a bright, delicious red!
The rules of the Mongol Rally stipulate that the car has to have a 1.2 liter engine or less. We managed to meet this mark, a surprise considering these tiny cars are not as common as one might think., with this 1.12cc engine. In addition, we needed room for up to three passengers, if not four (we’re still accepting pleas from folks who want to tag along! If you are considering the journey, contact us now so we can get you signed up)! We have that with two comfortable looking seats in the back. The inside has the steering wheel on the right hand side! Totally trippy for an American. It will be weird at first, driving on the wrong side of the road while in the UK. Silly Brits.
We’d love to thank Oz, who went above and beyond in assisting our American team in finding, buying and storing a car overseas. We’d also like to thank Craig, who offered to help, as well as the other Mongol Rally teams that offered their assistance. Thanks everyone!!!
