THREE weeks with people in a confined space is enough to drive most people up the wall.
But that’s not the experience of 16 Kiwi car enthusiasts who yesterday used Albury as a pit stop on their 8000-kilometre journey around Australia.
They started their trek on July 20 in Fremantle in Western Australia in an eclectic mix of eight classic cars, the oldest from 1934 and the baby of the convoy from 1977.
Director of the Classic Driver Indian to Pacific Perth to Sydney tour, Wes Davies, said the event was an adventure for people looking for a bit of excitement.
“We have shipped cars from Auckland in the north to Invercargill in the south,” he said.
While he said the tour was more about the journey than destinations, they had stopped in Ned Kelly country, Beechworth and Glenrowan, because it was a true Australian story.
The group is off to Cooma today and expect to finish their trip in Sydney on Thursday.
