Around the world in a 1930 Hudson

Post by Pine » Sat Sep 17, 2016 11:09 am

I listened to an interesting interview with a lady called Heidi Hetzer over the radio this morning. She has been travelling the world in a 1930 Hudson, and is currently in South Africa (Cape Town). What an amazing story!
I am a 79-year-old former mechanic, automobile dealer and rallye driver, driving around the world in a 1930 Hudson. I am more or less following in the tracks of german woman Clärenore Stinnes, who made a similar journey from 1927 to 1929. The trip will take a little more than 2 years. Europe to Asia to Australia and New Zealand, U.S.A., South America, Southern Africa and back to Europe. We hope to be back home in Berlin in March 2017. To meet me along the way please email meet.heidi.along.the.way(at)gmail.com

Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry, "Hey buddy, have you got a dime?"
And the beat goes on, the beat goes on...
