MENDED BY AAA:
Pan-Am Highway Presents'Challenge to Motorists
By CHARLES STAFFORD
Associated Press Newsfeatures Writer
seeking new highways to con-
quer, oh gallant Knight of the
Well, the Pan-American High-
'way is Just the road to tame that
adventurous spirit of yours.
The Pan-Am is not recom-
mended by the American Auto-
mobile Assn., the Duncan Hines
of the sparkplug and piston set.
"The highway itself," says the
AAA, "is in poor condition, ac-
commodations and food service
are inadequate, customs are still
very annoying, and the points of
i n t e r e s t, especially south of
Guatemala, do not Justify the ef-
fort and expense necessary."
Expense? Two AAA representa-
tives who drove from Mexico City
to Panama City -- almost - in a
1958 model sedan listed these
items on their expense accounts:
overhaul transmission twice, five
new tires, reline brakes, replace
all shock absorbers twice, repair
exhaust system twice, install new
brake cylinders, weld muffler,
It's a challenge.

Guatemala, El Salvador, Hon-
duras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and
Panama to Panama City -- in
Actually, only half of the 1,100
miles is paved. The rest is dirt,
gravel or stone. The 134-mile gap
between San Isidro del General,
Costa Rica, and Concepcion, Pan-
ama, is still under construction
The Pan-American motorist -
brave soul --had best brush up
on his Spanish before crossing
the Rio Grande. Customs at the
various borders can be a trial.
Mexico, for instaice, requires
only a tourist card and proof of
smallpox vaccination. But Nicar-
agua insists on a passport with
photograph, police and health
certificates, plus lhe smallpox
vaccination. In Honduras and
Panama, you have to get permis-
sion to leave the country.
It's best to obtain all the neces-
nary documents before leaving the
And don't forget siesta. At the
Ayutla crossing between Mexico
and Guatemala, the Mexican bor-
der station is open from 8:30 a.m.
to 1:30 p.m. and from 3:30 to 6
p.m. Even if you get there at
12:30 p.m., you're not going any-
where. For the Guatemalan sta-
tion just across the border is open
from 8 a.m. till noon and from 2
to 6 p.m..#
Good hotels and restaurants are
far apart. And gasoline stations
are sometimes in short supply.
Example: There isn't a single one
SbetweenComita,. Mexico, and
Huehuetenango, Guatemala, a
distance of 105 miles.
Now about the highway.
The Pan-Am is paved south of
Mexico City to the border of.
Guatemala. At Tehauantepec,
Mexico, it is necessary to ask
whether El Tapon, the mountain
pass just over the border, is open.
If it's nice, dry weather, it might
El Tapon is Spanish for "cork"
or "stopper." The pass: has long
been a Pan-Am bottleneck. It is
a seven-mile stretch of rough
gravel road winding through a
narrow, steep-walled c a n y o n
where landslides are frequent.
There are seven bridges.
Very little of the highway is
paved in Guatemala, and that
near Guatemala City, the capital.
Roadsigns pointing the way out
of Guatemala City are almost nil.
The 190-mile paved highway
through El Salvador is a beauti-
ful lull before the storm- in Hon-
duras, where the Pan-Am is un-
paved and rough.'
In Costa Rica, the highway is
paved but the farther you gb,.the
bigger the chuckholes. From Car-
tago to the highway's end at San
Isidro del General, the road is
gravel and part of it quite rough.
93 miles of the 305 from Concep-
cion to Panama City are paved.

From here, the motorist deter-
mined to finish the trip must ship
his car by coastal freighter from
Puntarenas, Costa Rica, to Puerto
Armuelles, Panama, then by rail-
road 30 :miles-to Concepcion.
That's it, friend. Lots of luck.7
