Around the world in a 1930 Hudson

Post by Pine »

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
