Spenser and Lauren’s 1992 Mitsubishi Delica!

In an exciting Finals Round where entrants kept leapfrogging to the lead, the winning margin came down to just under a hundred votes to name Spenser and Lauren the grand prize winner of the $500 in Cool Ride cash!

Newly engaged, Spenser and Lauren quit their jobs and sold their belongings to set out in their custom modified Delica in April of 2018. They spent their prize money on a new ARB awning to replace the “janky DIY awning” that was ripping. Plus, they picked up side walls, meaning no more getting pummeled with sideways rain, and mosquito netting walls to protect the from the insane amount of bugs that await them in Alaska, which is on their to-do list for 2019.

Here is wishing Lauren and Spenser safe, and slightly dryer, travels and thank you to everyone who entered and our 8 Finalists who came out and had a blast at this year’s Overland Expo EAST.
