An excerpt from the Foreword by Frank Barrett, editor of The Star Magazine:
"Most car guys merely dream about extreme applications of their automotive interests, but Gari Stroh actually made his dream become reality. His 30,000-mile drive from Colorado to the tip of South America and back, which he accomplished in 2004 and describes here, combined his interest in old Mercedes-Benzes with his appetite for seeing the world via expedition-type touring.
Not everyone would attempt a rugged solo drive through South America in a 19-year old diesel truck with 163,000 miles already behind it, but Gari was confident that his trusty Gelí_ndewagen was just the vehicle for the job. With no special preparation, just routine maintenance, it made the challenging journey--facing altitudes beyond 16,000 feet and temperatures below zero--with surprisingly few hiccups. What less would you expect of an old diesel Mercedes-Benz?"
