Australian Travel

| November/December 1990

This may be of interest to persons thinking about going or going to the Australian Vintage Machine Congress in 1991, as advertised in GEM September issue, page 56.

This summer I will have spent over three months in Australia on business. Being an old engine buff myself I was able to contact and get acquainted with some of our counterparts.

It was a very enriching experience to talk with these very knowledgeable persons on old engines. They also showed me some very beautifully restored engines and tractors, also some very unusual engines, both petrol (gas) and diesel. There is no way I can name them all.

I was most fortunate to have made contact with Ian Stewart, your host for the Congress. We spent several hours discussing our mutual interest in engines and his magazine T.O.M.M.

On my own, I traveled to and stayed in some of the same cities mentioned in the ad. From my own experience the price for the entire tour, less a few meals, is a real bargain!
