BABE Rally

The idea of the BABE Rally was wonderfully simple: buy a car for less than $250 and take part in a rally from New York to New Orleans (Big Apple to Big Easy). Gaucho’s md Alistair found a 1988 Lincoln Town Car on Ebay for $177 and headed for New York. An epic adventure beckoned: the exhaust fell off, the power steering broke and he was nearly arrested in Alabama for drinking a beer in a public place, but against the odds, the car made it. A 7-page piece in Top Gear magazine followed and the story proved the inspiration for a Top Gear TV special as Clarkson, Hammond and May attempted the same feat.
