Reg Ingold, 37 Seaham St., Holmesville 2286, New South Wales, Australia, writes to say that he and his wife will be driving across America from Miami to San Francisco via South Texas in January and February 1992. They would welcome correspondence from anyone along that route who might be interested in receiving visitors who'd like to talk engines.
