UPDATE: Model T World Tour - Cronulla bound

UPDATE: Model T Ford World Tour - Good news; after it's trans-Tasman sea journey in a shipping container, the 103-year-old Model T Ford arrived into the Port of Brisbane from New Zealand last week and has been cleared by Australian Customs & Quarantine.

Sporting his OH&S compliant Hi-Viz vest, Dirk Regter drives his freshly released 
from Customs, Model T Ford from the holding yard at the Port of Brisbane. 

After two-months of grand touring both islands of New Zealand, Dutch couple, Dirk and Trudy Regter picked up their car and have now officially commenced the 'round-Australia leg of their World Tour by heading south down the NSW North Coast for Sydney.

Finally on the road in Australia. Dirk pilots the Model T Ford over 
Brisbane's Gateway Motorway Bridge.

The goal now: to be in Cronulla by the weekend of 14-15th April to make a grand appearance at our Pre-WWII Vintage Car & Bike Show on Sunday 15th April.

One of the first Australian stops in was an over night stop in the Brisbane suburb
of Redcliffe. Dirk and Trudy Regter lean on their Land Rover support vehicle.

*On the evening of the Tuesday 10th of April the Model T Ford has reached Armidale. Next stop is a 'Meet & Greet' function with electronic media present to capture the story at Club Taree on Wednesday 11th April.
