I had decided that after my 110 year old Olds achieved her almost 3000 mile trip across America during 2013, I would bring her out only on special occasions during the summer months and perhaps the Brighton Run in November.
But then again I thought she seemed nicely run in and I started to consider whether she should have the opportunity to test her mettle again.
Last year I heard about the Adelaide to Darwin Veteran Car Run that traverses Australia from south to north through the Outback during August 2014 but I didn’t even consider the event for the Olds. All of the other entrants are in much more modern veterans, more powerful, more cylinders and capable of a higher MPH than my 1904, 7 HP single cylinder vehicle. Then in a fit of madness I calculated the daily mileage and discovered that on most days the mileage is similar to some of the long days we endured in the USA. And the end-result – I ENTERED. So here we go again!!!
