So a guy who runs a gas station in downtown San Diego decides he wants to take his kids camping. He does a few modifications Cadillac but keeps going until he created a car for the ages, one that ended up driving non-stop from San Diego to New York City, then Anchorage to Mexico City.

The guy was Louie Mattar and his car is now at the San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park. I’m doing some volunteer work for them and have put together a Mattar page here at Check it out.
